911 tape released - why we own guns!!

Postby age_ranger » Fri Jan 11, 2008 5:06 pm

If this doesn't spell it out enough, nothing ever will. It's gut wrenching and I think every CHL holder and gun owner should listen to it. Didn't see this posted anywhere so forgive me if it's a double post.

[911 operator] "Don't want to do anything rash..." :blowup

I feel extremely sympathetic to this woman...She had to put up with a lot before this incident...Somebody (the deceased) just plain misjudged a persons will to not put up with it any longer...

I bet that RO (that she surely had to have) would have prevented this... :roll:

BTW,

I am going to sit the wife down and suggest she listen to the whole tape...

They don't need to see the video...Just listen...

I hope they learned to be more safety minded when at home .

I downloaded it for you, Chas. What format do you want it to be in? It's in FLV format which requires VLC player, a popular media player to play.

How do you want me to send to you?

Actually, here's how you can download it:

Thanks, I'll be putting it in a PowerPoint presentation, so any format that will work in that application.

I appreciate your help,
Chas.

I can't quite make out the gun shots. It sounds like she was still yelling "Stop it!" after what seems like gun fire.

Might be neat to see if we could sticky it somewhere in the forum for future reference...

I believe it sends a powerful message, obviously...

Just an idea...

Charles and CompVest (and other instructors):

If you're like me, the editorializing--at least not all of it--in the video isn't something I'd like to show. I think the audio by itself, with no accompaniment, might actually be more powerful in a classroom. And of course, depending on the setup you have available, you can burn the audio to CD to play on a portable boom-box and not have to rely on PC speakers.

I captured the 911 call only and converted it to .WMA (common Windows media format) and .MP3 formats. You can right-click on the links below, then select "Save Target As" to download the files:

911-call_2007-11-17.wma - 1.3MB

911-call_2007-11-17.mp3 - 4MB

Here you go, an avi version that you can play on Windows Media Player.

Just a stupid thought. This may justify that I need to own 1 gun, but how can I justify to my significant other that we need more than one? *wink

Dear, would you rather me wear my holster all of the time around the house or we could stash a gun or two in every room?
