GUNS: THIS. THIS is why people resist any kind of gun control.

Because the government intrinsically cannot practice any sort of ACTUAL judgment. Any rule will be flaunted and abused.

This father had his pistol license revoked — his constitutional rights denied — because his son talked about “threatening” a kid [a bully, even] with a water gun.

When the left says “We don’t want to take away your guns, we just want more regulation”, the right only need look to stories like this to completely and utterly vindicate every iota of their resistance to change.

[Notice, also, that nobody gives a shit about the actual bullying, something that people take with them beyond school and into their professional lives. You can bet some of the workplace mass shootings were against bullies who would have been a schoolplace mass shooting had their ages simply been younger.]

GUNS: Analyzing shooting rampage statistics after Newtown school Shooting

Average deaths in a shooting rampage when stopped by police: 14.3
Average deaths in a shooting rampage when stopped by civilians: 2.3.

It should be noted, though, that that includes unarmed civilians.

So really, a civilian actually doing something reduces the average from 14.3 to 2.6 — 11.7 people saved on average. Them being armed only saves 0.8 lives a shooting (1 life every 4 out of 5 shootings).

The point being: Doing something is better than doing nothing, and waiting for the police is what will give you the lowest odds of surviving. And if someone is going to be a hero – they will a better job at doing so if they have the tools available.

ABUSE OF AUTHORITY: Sheriff Deputy Hits 19-year-old in Head with Gun – Surveillance Video Shows Vicious Attack

…And then the teen (who had committed no crime before the cops decided to mess with him) spent 4 months in jail based on a struggle the cop ¬†made up…. He went to jail 4 months for “assaulting” an officer so bad that a gun “went off” in the struggle. But oops. Caught on camera. It was the cop doing the assaulting, and even if the kid had gotten in a physical fight with the cop, it is no excuse to walk up and sucker-pistol whip someone so recklessly that a gun shoots in a random direction.

Where were the tasers again?

Yea.. these kids seemed like stupid pranksters, but now they are a waste of our tax dollars instead. I hope he wins the $10M lawsuit. Corporal Donald Taylor should get the fate that awaits cops who go to prison. This is injustice.

POLICE BRUTALITY: Surveillance Video Emerges of Today’s Empire State Building Shooting

Nine people shot by police in response to murderer who already killed his target, and had only 1 bullet left in his gun.

He was already being shadowed by a civilian. The police could have sucker-tackled him with undercover officers. Instead, they fired 16 shots in a crowded area, and shot 9 people.

Instead of de-escalating a protecting the public, they escalated and caused the casualties to multiply by 10.

The entire country of Germany fires less than 100 bullets EVERY YEAR. ¬†They actually practice restraint in the public interest; something American cops don’t seem to understand.

The police are worse than the original gunman. The public is lucky none of them were killed.

“I can’t see this as anything other than gross incompetence by the police. The NYPD in particular has a reputation for hosing down the general vicinity – nobody should ever do that, especially on a crowded sidewalk.” -my friend Stacy

Furthermore – a murder escapes the justice system with zero consequence. Death is meaningless. This man should go to prison, and instead escaped this. If you’re going to kill yourself, WHY NOT murder your enemies if the police just help you escape it all in the end? No justice here.

GUN CONTROL: Detroit citizen self-defense killings skyrocket

And this is a good thing.

I mean, it’s not as good as the fucking cops actually doing the job they’re paid to do.

But when tax revenues dry up and there aren’t any police — the armed populace are the only ones who can actually do anything about it.

The way I read this article – at least 34 people and their families were saved thanks to the 2nd amendment.
