    True. I don't get it, there are plenty of people with no social skills that keep to themselves with no incidents, and then we get this type. It would be interesting to figure out what differentiates the loner from the dangerous loner.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    They're not nutjobs. I think the solution to the wacko factor will never be answered.

    Remember that dude in Baon Rouge about 15 years ago that went to jail--or damn near went to jail--because he shot/killed a car thief with a compound bow? I can't find the story and I'm not going to look for it, but the point is, when you get involved and the bad guy gets hurt, or killed, there's always some asshole(s) that think you should be punished.
    I don't remember the BR incident but there was a similar case in Florida, same problem, the guy was almost killed while someone tried to drive away in his car, he injured the perp and it was argued he had to let the criminal escape.

    The guy in BR was at a sporting goods store, took a bow off the shelf and grabbed some arrows, then shot a guy that was breaking into his truck. He was put on trial, but don't remember if he was convicted, or not.

    What about that dude that capped his son's kidnapper at the Lake Charles airport? He walked.

    I teach my students that there are various targets of opportunity. Face and thigh works pretty well

    shooting someone in the kneecap is going to put them down then you can go up and finish them with a shot to the back of the neck

    btw a 45 to the groin-even with those ballistic cups is going to really hurt. anyone who has been a catcher in baseball knows what I mean

    Or the 3rd option, which ensured the majority of those people got out of the theater: panic, take cover, don't shoot back, don't get shot, leave and survive.

    Yeah, I'm always pissed when they kill themselves or die in other ways because any hope of understanding goes (mostly) out of the window.
