Re: Man with gun tattoo on forehead arrested on gun charge in Greenville, police say

It just hit me. Where the heck was the usual off duty police guard I see at every theater I am ever at? Is there not any at that theater?
Where they always are. Far side of the concessions by the ticket-taker's pedestal, checking bags and purses for contraband snacks :nono:

This ...

Re: Walmart carjacker foiled twice

If every driver you attempt to carjack pulls a gun on you, maybe God is trying to tell you that you made a poor career choice?

Re: Colorado Dem candidate pepper sprays himself video

1) "whatta maroon" 2) anyone else question the concept of countering lethal force with a non-lethal force (presuming you have a choice AND wish your countermeasure to be effective) 3) they don't show the actual time lapse in the video, between when he sprays himself, and when he's dunking his head a...

Re: Mass Shooting at Orlando Nightclub

he was looking for someone who’d entered the club with a fake ID. When he heard gunshots, he ran toward the entrance and confronted Mateen , but realized he was outgunned and needed backup - yeah, I tend to wonder about that part. - if you engage first, and effectively, it doesn't matter that you a...

Re: How Can This Happen?

When this video first popped up, there was discussion on the competition forums about it's provenance, and likelyhood. - at the time, no one was able to determine where this took place, and no club owned up to it. - the consensus was that the RO in this scenario was an incompetent moron - it was poi...

Re: Jodie Foster more comfortable with robots having guns

we are designed to have emotions that overflow and that are not guided by our heads
Speak for yourself, if you like, Ms. Foster; but don't presume to speak for the rest of us, or expect us to hold that narrow worldview you seem to have that all our psyches are the same......(like yours?)

Re: Former chief of the Texas Rangers thinks 2A is about hunting

A one time buddy of mine was an LEO (detective, later a Game Warden) and is way left. He doesn't even own a gun, thinks the government should provide him money so he can pursue his art.
