quickly try to decide what to kill them with, my AR15 pistol with EoTech, my AR15 rifle with ACOG, or my H&K91 with Fero Z-24 scope. or, go hardcore and use one of my glocks. either way, i'm going suppressed so i dont hurt my daughter's hearing!

Livingroom: AR15 pistol with EoTech,


You need a SigTac forearm brace for it!  Sure, in a pinch you might sidle that stock up to your shoulder and fire it like a short-barreled rifle, but it's legally still just a brace on a pistol.

That is legally not a rifle stock. and review I read of it said the guy couldn't hit a damn thing with it strapped like that, as it prevents you from lining the sights up with your eyes..

One robber dead, the second critical and daughter unharmed. Somebody should be getting one hell of a Father's Day gift next Sunday.

Evidently the father referenced in the article decided to appoint himself judge, jury and executioner.

Using it as a brace is awkward. Works much better tucked in the shoulder

I live just down the street from this incident. The problem we have in this country is that after we have ample evidence of who the bad apples are, we allow them to continue to run loose. There are some habitable islands off the coast of Alaska that could work as good cost effective prison colonies. This is especially cost effective because we could also use that same island for a firing range for Navy battleships"

tbh i find that using a padded tube is actually superior. recoil is virtually nonexistent anyway with 5.56, so i just cheekweld the heck out of a padded tube. its actually more fun to shoot than my carbine length.

How is that cost effective?  There is a chance that you could hit the prison and then you would have to keep rebuilding these things.  Long-term outlook isn't very good with this plan.

I'm not sure if you saw No Escape..  make tthe prisoners build their own prison
 
2014-06-12 03:27:30 AM
And just because I wanted to look it up, the initial plot summary is rather hilarious:

In the year 2022, the penal system is run entirely by corporations, with prisoners seen as assets. Highly-trained ex-marine John Robbins is imprisoned for life for murdering his commanding officer, who in 2011 ordered him to kill scores of innocent men, women and children in Benghazi (Libya).

It just goes to show you that you've probably made some pretty bad choices in your life if you have a kid at 17 years old. One of those choices will probably be deciding to live in an area where people will kidnap your kid outside your doorstep.
 
2014-06-12 04:42:07 AM
I give my daughter the "kill" command.  Then I take the dead robber's wallet and have an ice cream cone with his money.

Daily Fail Headline:

"Father shoots dead armed robbers using his teenage daughter as human shield during home invasion"

That wasn't very nice of the father to use his daughter as a human shield.

You don't need to cite to a movie; there's all sorts of real-life precedent for that.  For example, San Quentin State Prison in California was built by convicts living in a prison ship anchored in San Francisco Bay, who were moved in once it was finished.

the island is the prison.. no buildings.. nothing,... the prisoners have to build their own very rough shelter if they even know how.. and if the navy hits that shelter.. too bad. back to square one.

Two more touching photos to include in the Fark anti-gun threads.
 
2014-06-12 05:14:15 AM
What the media keeps failing to report is that Gun Crime (and Violent Crime overall) has dropped considerably in the last 30 years.

The only issue is that we're hearing about these crimes more often, due to the internet and 24 hour news.  I can also guarantee that all the anti-gun folks would be on their knees in thanks if a good Samaritan saved their child.

He shot dead armed robbers using his daughter as a human shield? Why would he shoot them if they were already dead? And why would he use his own daughter as a human shield?

Oh, FFS. Spare me, Bunny Foo Foo.

When some asshole shoots up a bunch of innocent people and your side of the debate makes a point on the event, it's relevant and important.

When someone uses a firearm precisely as it's intended to save the life of a family member and our side of the debate makes a point on the event, it's masturbatory.

Cut me a mother-farking break.

Of course, I would have merely directed the robbers' attention to the TV on the wall playing the Fruity Oaty Bar commercial while I and the rest of the family began backing out of the room.

Actually, I only came to this thread to point out the headline on TFA is possibly the new benchmark for idiotic copywriting:

"Father shoots dead armed robbers using his teenage daughter as human shield during home invasion"

 ...Really? Dead armed robbers were shot by a man who used his teenage daughter as a human shield while a home was invaded? Did he use his daughter to shoot them, too? Was he invading the dead robbers' home, or was it that the invading robbers couldn't feel or move their arms?

Nope. You're confusing vengeance with immediate legitimate defence.

he also killed a badguy and injured another badguy. Oh, you didn't mean masturbate. Carry on.

Oh, I dunno. I bet there's some senator out there with a friend in the building business... just sayin.

Also: good for this guy! I wish him and his family all the best, but he really needs to talk to his wife about aim.

comma goes where?

I understand what you mean, but the lack of comma after the word 'robbers' makes all the difference here.

The headline of TFA is headachey, but not really in the way you point out.

Apparently the robbers were 1. Horrible shots 2. Not good at using a shield the size of a human
 
2014-06-12 06:21:35 AM
Robbers fail at basic human shield 101. Pick a human larger than you.

Or as Mayor Bloomberg calls it: 2 more victims of gun violence including a violence.  The dead guys name will be read at some vigil as if he was a martyr for gun control.  Just like when they read the Boston Bombers name and the Newton shooters name.
