We know the self-righteous among us think me and this guy should have been arrested. It must be terribly disconcerting to know so much more about law enforcement than the cops on the scene. An unsatisfying cross to bear, I would think.
I suspect they're equally distressed with the Castle Doctrine. Here's a safety tip: don't use someone else's doggy door to facilitate your burglary attempt. The homeowner might shoot you in the head with his .40 cal.
It's a good thing that recruitment center in Chattanooga is a gun free zone. Just like Charleston, Aurora, Virginia Tech, et al. I encourage all you gun control advocates to plant signs in your front yards proudly announcing "This Home Is A Gun Free Zone." If it's good enough for our Marines, it oughtta be good enough for you.
We know the trolls think me and this guy should've been arrested. It must be disconcerting to know so much more about law enforcement than the cops on the scene. The trolls must be uber-anguished over the Castle Doctrine. Safety tip: don't try to facilitate your burglary attempt through the doggy door. The homeowner might shoot you in the head with his .40 cal.
Some decent observations I suppose, in a 'water is wet' sort of way. It's true that vigilant residents with their eyes peeled helped law enforcement apprehend the scumbag, which is contrary to the editorial's suggestion that we're too complacent and self involved. And even though the killer was quickly taken off the streets, it's cold comfort to the victim and her family.
We often hear people lament the state of mental health screening and treatment in the aftermath of episodes like Charleston and Aurora (I'm one of them). This piece doesn't even pay lip service to the issue. And while my immediate reaction is irritation, the unfortunate reality is that a loser going off the rails may never be preventable.
Let's see: you brought guns into the thread. So it's okay for you to go off topic; it's inappropriate for me to acknowledge or respond to it. Thanks for clearing that up. The time has come to file you under 'life's too short', alongside your fellow hypocrite and liar Mr. Hall Monitor. You are in excellent company! Be well.
Wow, Neil. I don't think I've been so thoroughly chastened since Ronnie Heffler called me a slant eyed rice eater in the second grade. Lefties and 8-year olds: they're so... intellectual.
You're in excellent company, my friend.
Neil dangles his favorite red herring (Fox, which no one has cited here) while linking to a lefty echo chamber like Hightower in the same breath. You can't make this stuff up.
"Chance to deploy gun. Oh boy! Maybe I'll get to kill too! Shunt to loop of manly things to say while deploying gun."
Another straw man. Attributing to me something I've never, felt, said, or expressed. A lie, in other words. A greater act of cowardice than anything I've ever said or done.
I note you've not been able to summon the courage to answer my question about the guy in Atalanta. Why am I not surprised?
Incidentally, George: do you think this guy was as wrong-headed as you believe me to have been in 1993? If not, why? A yes or no question that I'll be marginally surprised if you answer.
George K: if they threaten to brain me with an iron bar, there's a decent chance I'll deploy my gun. As far as drone strikes, you'll need to consult the President.
Nice straw man, though.
