This guy is just trying to create an unnecessary aura of fear and panic in the public.

Everyone knows that calling - or even THINKING about calling 911 automatically disables any and all would-be burglars, muggers, rapists, robbers and murderers.

Why does he hate Dianne Feinstein?

wee: You mean I'm responsible for my own safety?! Oh the Horror!

That's why I'm against 911 and police departments in general. Also hospitals. They take away people's incentive to be safe.

BarkingUnicorn: What's "the job?" Preventing crime or showing up after a crime to track down the criminal?

What's "enough to do the job?" One cop per crime to be solved? A 24/7 cop at every home?

And if they were made of straw, it would represent huge savings toward the tax payer.

HK-MP5-SD: Spanky_McFarksalot: feckingmorons: I carry a gun because I can't carry a cop.

do they send a memo out with slogans and talking points?

Yes, It is actually on the other side of the memo that anti-gun groups send out with slogans and talking points for their position. Both sides are so farking stubborn that they refuse to even turn a paper over to find out what the other side thinks.

Guns for some ... miniature American flags for others!

BronyMedic: rattchett: Tens of millons of Americans are armed and the vast majority (over 99.99%) are safe, law abiding decent people who would only ever shoot a person if left with no other option.

Sorry, but no. This doesn't fly. While yes, the majority of gun owners are average Americans who really don't buy into the derp and hype, and own a weapon to hunt or protect themselves, it's far more of a problem than you seem willing to admit that "Responsible" gun owners go full retard in a public manner.

There are between 43 and 55 million gun owners in the USA. There are approximately 100,000 shootings per year, which would include all types, including justified, murder, suicide, negligent, etc. The number of shootings include all guns, illegally and illegally owned.

If you take an average of 50 million gun owners and divide it by the number of shootings you come to .002. In other words .002% of gun owners shoot another person per year while 99.998% do not. Thus 99.99% of all gun owners are responsible. In fact more because I intentionally skewed the figures to be most favourable to those who would argue that the majority of gun owners are irresponsible.

paygun: You could make a load of money on that. I don't mean selling such a nice gun that you inherited. Don't sell it. But you could sell those high capacity assault magazines for a load of cash right now since the panic is on. Not to people in New York, though.

In all seriousness, he'd come back to haunt me. One of the conditions of inheriting his guns in his will was that I never sell any of them. Next time I'm there, I'll take some pics. A few Auto 5s, a 60 year old winchester 30-30, beautiful BAR rifle, M1 Carbine and Garand among other things. He also left me a biatchin' JFK and Johnson memorabilia/staff gift collection, but that stays in the gun safe I'm too cheap to move from Savannah to Memphis (really need to, though. Need to have a secure place for documents and valuables). That man loved him some FN/Browning.

I need to take better care of it. Right now I only shoot the polymer piece of crap that is the Bersa .380 on a regular basis.

feckingmorons: You're all over the map, or perhaps I don't get it. What exactly is your position on using a gun for self defense and what did the Sheriff do that you don't like?

I don't have a problem with using a firearm in defense of the life of one, or another. CCWs are awesome. I have a problem with the Decider mentality that some people encourage and demonstrate.

On otherhand, I think everyone needs a pair of these.

Milo Minderbinder: I said the truly innocent violent crime victim in Milwaukee is a statistical non-entity.

Last time I was in Milwaukee someone stole a bag of dog shiat out of my friend's hand. She didn't start laughing for about 45 seconds she was so stunned.

/obviously she was walking the dog who didn't think it odd at all that someone wanted a bag of jakes.

Bit'O'Gristle: As a LEO, i can say this has merit. It takes minutes to find your address, i don't have a encyclopedic memory and knowledge of every farking address in the USA, and it takes time to get there, and find the house / business. It may be in a area i've never been in before. And frankly, I'm not your personal bodyguard, i get called, i get there as fast as safely possible, and deal with what is happening, or in 99 percent of incidents, already happened and over by the time i get there. It's not my job to camp on your driveway and wait for something to happen to you, I can't be everywhere at once. So yes, it makes sense that you have some training / plan /way to defend your home / business / family. I am a reactionary asset of the local government, not your personal bodyguard. Learn how to protect yourself and yours if you care enough to do that, or just be a victim and cry "why aren't the police protecting us?

So what I'm hearing here is that I need to put lights on my car and drive around the neighborhood dispensing brutal justice with my .38, right?

Lots of sound and fury over some cop stating the obvious.

Should we also fire up the outrage machine when a fire chief tells us to learn fire safety and know how to put small ones out before they consume the house? I feel like the website is slowly being taken over by Consumerist commenters. Seriously, grow a pair.

Jake Steed: Home protection is pretty much common sense and your responsibility. I won't go to slaughter like a lamb, unlike these libs.

2 animals broke into their home, tied up the family in the basement and slit their daughters throats in front of them and let the couple watch the daughters cough and struggle and then ultimately drown in their own blood. My Norinco Mak 90 assures this will never occur in my home. It is my responsibility to protect my family and I won't fail like this lib.

Ever call 911 in Milwaukee? Car theives could easily be in Chicago before the police will get there. There was a report of someone last year calling in a burglary in progress and the police took over 2 DAYS to respond. Yes. Days.

David Clark telling people that they are working with the sherrifs department and that citizens might want to consider taking a certified responsible firearms handling course is not only justified and smart, it's thye exact opposite of "dumbass".
