    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Hmm. Hadn't heard that yet, I find it hard to believe this guy didn't have red flags all over the place prior. I have wondered if maybe someone just refused to get him to see he needed help.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Obviously there were and she either failed to act on actionable information or there was no actionable information.

    Here is a technological idea but probably not attractive at the end of the day. Build all future guns with GPS technology that cannot be removed from the gun without disabling the gun. When the guns enter restricted zones the GPS signal automatically alerts authorities.

    Then my grandkids can run a black market on the freebie antiques that were built without the inherent GPS technology.

    I recommend a Browning Buckmark 22/45, or Ruger Mark III 22/45. Very accurate, same grip/weight as a 1911.
    I think everyone on these forums knows that I'm not a shooter. He was the one that took me out shooting my first time... I did better (accuracy) than he did...

    Anyways, I'm sure he is capable of making his own decision (I think he is 57, he is my aunt's boyfriend)...

    Often times they blend in just enough to not do anything about them. Until we get a real live Minority Report we are stuck with focusing on causation and prevention.

    Yeah I would have killed him assuming I wasn't one of the first few he shot. If I saw someone go out an emergency exit I sure as hell would have been in condition ORANGE for sure.

    Yes, apparently she did say that, many news agencies are reporting it.

    :\
    He is carrying for the wrong reasons then, it is a HUGE responsibility to own a weapon and if someone does so just to make others happy they are not going to take the proper mindset to learn past the fundamentals. I would suggest people learn as much as possible when they take on the ownership responsiblity as far as firearms are concerned.

    The biggest thing to learn is absolutely without a doubt how to precisely operate under pressure. This can be a one to one assault, a hostage situation, crowd of innocents and a massacre developing, anything.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    He's useless....

    It is a marksmanship issue, there should never be any such thing as a wounded tango. Shoot them right the first time and you don't have to worry about shooting them again
