RodneyToady: The story doesn't exactly match the headline (welcome to Fark, I know).  His grandfather shot his dad.  Sounds like a reasonable case of self-defense.


I thought mentioning the mobile home was redundant, too

Is the boy still around? I've heard that if you kill your own grandfather, you cease to exist.

whatshisname: The Second Amendment never anticipated that 50% of the population are below average intelligence, did it?


The second amendment is misinterpreted.  It's not the right to bear arms, it's the right to arm bears.  A little transcription error and Thomas Jefferson's dream of an ursine army disappeared forever.

/you just kind of assume that

a mobile home in carolina doesn't always indicate the stereotype that comes to mind. down here one can have a doublewide sitting on 10 acres of land with a swimming pool, two bmw's and a $60,000 ford dually in the driveway and both husband/wife both working white collar well paying jobs.

People are confusing manufactured housing with trailers. Double-wides are only mobile until they get installed at the job site; they're not designed to be hitched up and driven away the way single-wides are. Looking at TFA, you can see that guy's house is just a standard rural shiatbox that happened to have been built in a factory rather than on-site; it's not a trailer.


O_o Double wides and single wides are made the same crappy way out of the same crappy material.  The axels being removed doesn't mean it wasn't a trailer.  The axels can be put back on, split the structure and be moved again.  However, once a redneck takes the wheels off of a car and puts it on blocks, it'll never move again.

lewismarktwo: Then they wonder what all the fuss is about when no one gets shot 100 times a second with a 30 caliber magazine clip thing that goes up.


I thought the thing that goes up is illegal now. YOU MEAN TO TELL ME PEOPLE ARE WALKING AROUND CARRYING THE THING THAT GOES UP?!?!?!?!!?

macross87: At least he's not his own grandpa


That would be terrible.  I mean, that would make this a suicide, and surely someone would go to hell for that.  No, this was much better.  The grandfather didn't kill anyone (the Bible says 'thou shalt not kill, but it's fine to maim') and the boy will have time to repent, (although I'm pretty sure the Constitution overrides the Bible here and you don't go to hell if you kill someone with a gun.)

So yes, it's good that he is not his own grandpa.

So, do you keep your eleven-year-old boy loaded, or unloaded?

LoneVVolf: Way to tilt the story with a leading headline, Daily News... Grandfather shot the kid's dad first, prompting the defensive shot by the kid.


To be fair, if my grandpa shot my dad, I'd get into an argument with him.
