Shouldn't Macintosh be allowed to shoot Clous now?  That should be legal.  He's threatening her with a gun.
 
2021-04-12 3:49:53 PM  
She should shoot him humanely, of course.  Using a suitable caliber to finish him in one shot, none of this .22 rimfire nonsense.

The Traverse City area is politically  weird, even by Michigan standards. The formerly summer-only people, who are, well, let's say more cosmopolitan than the year-round people, are starting to retire and stay there year-round (and vote). This has all the hallmarks of the sort of clash that results.

The Proud Boys are just an amorphous group of concerned men's rights activists who are totally not racist and would stand against, say, their leaders burning a black church's BLM flag and defacing their monuments.

Merciful, but sporting.

Ain't nothing gonna happen.  Clous is an asshole and he's got two buddies on the board that are also assholes.  A buddy of mine said he's going to run against one of the assholes but I'm afraid this area has gone to shiat politically.  People are still complaining about Antrim County which is next door.  I blame the younger generation leaving down because there are no decent paying jobs or inexpensive housing for them.

They don't    You're perception is skewed.

I think, not being afraid of guns is more of a manly quality.  However, I have run into several females and even a couple of girly girls that can outshoot me, my wife being one of them.

Ummm...
I don't know...if she shoots him in the eye with the .22 at an angle and it rolls around inside his skull without exiting, it can really do a considerable amount of damage.
Up to and including death, with the added benefit of "we don't know WHAT is gonna break down!" depend on what it hits inside.
Paralysis of diaphragm, hemorrhage, neurological disruption of bodily function.
He could just wet himself for the rest of his life and die of chronic diaper rash.

A suitable dispatch for such childish behavior IMHO.

I take your point, but I'm actually more okay with open-carry than I am with concealed-carry. At least I know who the nutters are, then. Everyone else, I've got to guess.

Guess I was naive but until trump I figured  about 1/4 of the population was just irredeemable soulless assholes - to find out it's closer to 1/2 makes me wonder how this country can possibly survive.

Why are you okay with it? What does it accomplish other than terrorizing communities? There is no reason anyone needs to carry a gun in the open. All it signifies is "I will shoot you."

I believe the term is "brandishing", and in Texas it will get you charged with a felony and your concealed carry permit revoked.

This is not true.  There are some door kickers, but the vast majority of those have experience in door kicking.  Most are either tactical or hunters.  Just 1 or 2 tactical classes can improve you tremendously no matter what your skill level is.  Regular tactical classes can hone you into something dangerous.

Army and Marines only get a couple of weeks weapons training at boot camp and they come out with more than enough to be dangerous.  Now being an elite takes some years to perfect

But almost no one thinks they are Rambo

Remember America had people fighting for the right to keep slaves, people fighting to free the slaves, people who didn't care about slaves and were fighting to keep the Union together, people who said hey let those slave states go and people who thought hey let's let the South have slaves and the North not(you know Moderates)
The smallest group would have been those fighting to free the slaves

My mother's family is from the thumb, but she grew up in Petoskey.  All I can say is

THANK FARK

/I was last up there in 2016.  Apparently the Flint Water Crisis was overblown by the liberal media, Hillary was the antichrist, and the militias were a little misunderstood.
//Never going back to Petoskey OR Brown City.

Many of these tacticool guys think their weekend plinking makes them every bit as badass as SEAL Team Six or Delta Force and totally better than the police

BTW Rambo dies in the book, killed by Troutman because he had become an embarrassment to the USASF

I'm not okay with it, I'd prefer nobody carrying. But at least the asshole with an obvious weapon gives me a clue to steer away from and a warning of imminent danger. Pre-pandemic, I walked into a fast-food restaurant and the manager had two small loaded magazines on his belt at his back, but no obvious weapon. I don't go back into that restaurant.
