    Sometimes a 'zombie' gets pissed and shoots your dogs, you, and your wife. Will you be ready?

    People shooting each other over where a dog takes a **** is not a strong argument for lose gun laws. I mean who the hell looks at a story of a man and his wife being killed by some wacko because of where their dog ****, then said wacko getting into a shootout with a police officer and another random citizen where the wacko ends up dead and thinks "The 2nd Amendment working as intended."

    This story is just sickening, and its almost equally sickening how someone can ignore half of it and try to turn it into just a story about a hero who assists a police officer with his gun. This is a story about a man who got into an argument with another guy about a dog pooping near his RV, then the story continues with said man going back to his vehicle, grabbing a pistol and shooting the other guy in the back as he walks away and then again while he's on the ground. It continues with the shooter chasing down and executing the man's wife who came out of the RV screaming. Absolutely horribly sickening, and you look at this story and think it supports gun rights?

    They argued, and got a (handgun), and shot the male subject as he was going away, and shot him again on the ground, at pretty close range. The subject’s wife came out of the trailer and started screaming. He chased her down, shot her, and shot her while she was down also.”

    It's a story about Po White Trash acting like Po White Trash, basically.... except for the guy that aided the officer.

    I study history as an avocation. In the 1500's London was so crime-ridden it was worth your life to try to travel across the city after dark. The wealthy, if they had to go somewhere after dark, travelled with servants who held lanterns on poles and carried arquebuses (early matchlock firearms) with the slow-match lit and ready to fire. Po White Trash in 1500s London killed each other quite frequently, often over stupid ****, mostly with belt-knives and daggers or whatever came to hand.

    Human nature remains human nature... but many historians believe that the modern era has far less crime than many other periods in history, including much of the medieval and rennaisance eras.

    My point? This kind of **** happens whether people have guns or not, and it isn't anything new. Guns do make it easier.... but guns also make it easier for smaller weaker men, women, older persons and those who are ill or partly disabled to defend themselves also. There are postives and negatives. On the whole, I believe the positives outweigh the negatives and that available data supports that conclusion.

    Absolutely hopeless, no logical way to ever get through here. *Placed on the disregard list*

    Thats a great shot.Maybe he should be on that history channel show Top Shot.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I totally agree, but this is not a story that puts a positive spin on gun ownership. Its great that a citizen assisted a police officer and perhaps saved his life, but the incident that led to that event in my opinion is a far more negative display of gun use than guy helping the police officer is a positive display of gun use.

    And to be honest I read the story and I really was sickened that two people, three if you count the shooter, died over something like that. I was a bit emotional.
