(Oregon Live)   If someone drives on your lawn at 5:40 in the morning, shooting at their truck isn't the best option. You should teach your kids that, too, before they fire eight rounds from "the household's .40-caliber Glock"   ( oregonlive.com) divider line

Guns are a great way to turn a minor situation into a list of felonies...

Contrary to popular stupidity, anyone that should venture your property, or even into your home, is not an intruder looking to do you harm.  A staggering number of people kill their family members every year because they hurdanintruda.  Perhaps the most disturbing thing about the GOP/NRA/Law Enforcement arms phenomenon is that the notion of duty to assess before firing has been completely abandoned.

I didn't read the article.
I own guns
I own a lot of guns.
I own fully automatic guns (not bump stocks)

Shooting at people is never the Weeners,. It is always the last response, right after running screaming like a little girl, at least in my bool.

I don't understand this, FTFA:
"..on suspicion of attempted assault and unlawful use of a weapon"
how is this not attempted murder?
They shot at him with guns. Not their tiny peni or confetti.

Shooting your conefetti at someone without their consent is assault. They grazed his head with a bullet. Not confetti.

This is absurd.

Langdon_777: CaptainSpaceJohnny: I apologize, I said accidentally above.  It was certainly intentional.  The "accident" was not realizing anyone was home.

Hardly a reason for someone to shoot at kids.


To be fair to the farmer:

1) I am not sure if he shot at us or fired a warning shot to scare us.
2) my friend lived two doors down from him.   So we were fully aware that stepping onto his field may result in an ass full of rock salt.
3). Most of the farms had horses, but this guy had a few cows, so this was a recurring issue for him.  We weren't the only punks on his property after dark.


Now that I'm a middle aged dad, I would have handled it differently.  I would get my friends, go to the farmer, and offer to clean his fields of cow patties provided we could keep what we found.

Lady J: There was a fight outside my house last night. We heard a smash of breaking glass (thrown bottle, it turns out), and then a lot of shouting and scuffling. Lord J went outside and there was a dude with a baseball bat kicking off at the little scallies who hang around the basketball court and shot w33d. Big brother of head scally came 'steaming' up the road on his electric scooter and calmly tried to defuse the siuation. I was actually really impressed. Someone must have called the cops though cos a whole bunch showed up really quickly (donut shop obvs sold out).

No real harm done in the end, thankfully, except for some glass to sweep up.


I didn't realise Fark did multi-language.

Can anyone explain how I get back to English?

This is why you put rocks strategically at the edge of your property.  No truck on your lawn, no need to consider violence to remedy lawn truck situation.

let me help you out...

scally - tracksuit-sporting young man frequently in trouble with the boys in blue for petty offences
shotting weed - selling cannabis
steaming - emitting visible water vapour / very drunk / wading into a situation with enthusiasm

Look, I'm a firearm owner and I havea few but I'm not protecting the farkheads. I hope they do some time and use it to reflect on some life changes. Responsible gun owners know what last resort means and they are not drivin by fear and stupidiity. Some asshats think they live in the wild west or something. They are the ones that make me nervous and on the fence about the capacity for mainstream America to own firearms. Some people literally need their firearms taken away. But again, some dont.

No, these idiots are going to jail.

TFA shows why safety training should be mandatory for firearm ownership, certificate signed before delivery of the firearm.  Gun safes or at least trigger locks should be mandatory when minors are in the house.  Or people that haven't had gun safety training.

symptomoftheuniverse: "At least one of the bullets grazed his Smith's head"

I hate getting shot in the Smith's head.


The article's vague about this, but I'm assuming that the guy had his horseshoe manufacturer in the car with him and that's the person who got grazed.

What the hell so you know? Have you seen my lawn? If farking emaculate.

Incidentally this is the same way I deal with dandelions. Airates the lawn and provides the soil with the much needed lead to keep your grass that lush, deep green.
