    PRSI soil is particularly fecund and gun threads sprout like ear hair.

    I agree -- absolutely.

    In fact, I think we might get a new motto out of this: "The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a stolen toilet seat is a self-appointed vigilante with a gun."

    Easy there, Huntn. You're just politicizing tragedies to promote your liberal agenda.

    His point (with the title) was that this could be the catch-all thread for what is bound to be the stream of gun massacres and mayhem in the years to come.

    Years ago I emailed the forum admins, asking for a forum stickie, HO-HUM, ANOTHER SHOOTING IN AMERICA.

    But that didn't go anywhere.

    People have been griping about too many gun threads for as long as I've been posting here. Moreso than politics, religion, or social issues, it's THE one issue that gets brought up the most around here.

    They should rename the forum to Guns and jkcerda Posting That One Rachel Maddow Link.

    Because nothing says responsible gun owner quite like a woman firing a weapon at a fleeing shoplifter in a public area.

    I know huh, I also wish the criminal would have done his deed in a private range so that there would be no chance an innocent bystander getting hit but criminals don't have any common sense, still I am glad the woman decided to act so that she could save the store some money, I don't care if the merchandise is insured



    Is your sarcasm meter still broken?

    I do not have a sarcasm meter because there is no such thing as one.

    He has enough common sense to not shoplift in a private gun range.

    Not to many big box retail stores in those anyway.

    Only because the bad guy got away, think of all the money she could have saved the tax payers had she killed the criminal, now the one facing jail is her :doh:

    Anyways I got more than one sarcasm meter from my earlier heist for sale.

    Money saved? her murder trial would be far higher just think of the cost of a death sentence. but hell she was judge jury and failed executioner. lets just hope no dogs steal food around her. she also failed her robo cop class too.

    Of course she failed robo cop class, the book was not structured in the form of a recipe and women can't understand things any other way.

    What is your addy? I'll send that meter for free as you could sure use it :D

    I didn't read the article - but from the headline (which admittedly in todays news world sometimes only tangentially relates to the article itself) she is in trouble , and rightly so. Justifiable use of deadly force is rather limited in scope, as I understand it. There is Castle doctrine which means if I'm threatened where I am occupying I'm justified. i.e. if I'm in my home, car, etc and someone is in/breaking in I am justified in defending myself. However, If I pull in the driveway and see someone through the window and I know wife kids etc are not at home - that would not a justified use of deadly force and castle doctrine would not apply since I wasn't actually in the structure.

    Then there is 'stand your ground' doctrine which is slightly different and says I don't have to retreat or attempt to retreat if confronted outside of my occupancy and I am entitled to defend myself. Not all states have 'stand your ground' laws.

    The use of deadly force in a public space against a fleeing thief that isn't reasonably assumed to be a threat to anyone elses safety is just asking for trouble.

    Not a lawyer, and laws vary from state to state. This is the reason why I took a CCW class even though I haven't followed through with application for a CCW. The laws are complex.
