Gun control

Monday, July 18, 2022 3:42 AM
Three people are dead, and three people are injured with conditions unknown after multiple police departments responded to an active shooter at Greenwood Park Mall Sunday afternoon, according to the Greenwood Police Department. An eyewitness tells News 8 that a good Samaritan shot and killed the shooter during the incident. Greenwood Police Department indicated that the shooter was carrying a rifle with multiple magazines of ammunition through the food court of the mall before firing upon the mall crowd. Greenwood Police believe that the Good Samaritan used a handgun to incapacitate the shooter.

Anyone with a brain can tell you that Gun Control is bullshit. You can have a registry, a waiting period, and a background check but those with criminal intent will always find away around those to get a gun. No Matter what country, city, or state. Why do I say this? Because criminals break the law period end of story. Whats worse when this shooter is investigated as have all the rest, will be found to be a loner who follows an indoctrinated manifesto of leftist bullshit.

We should arm all teachers and students from kindergarten up after they complete training when we will give them little "Good Samaritan" cloth badges to see on to their clothing. Same with strippers to handle pimps and drug dealers that threaten them in the club. The more guns the better as long as they go through Good Samaritan training

Actually since life begins earlier now in states than in the past we should probably explore ways of arming these little fuckers in the womb. I've known some dancers who would be fully capable of comfortably having an AR 15 inserted into their vaginas

Ok all bullshit aside, I'm glad there are those who would take a crazy fucking shooter out. The problem I have is when either side speaks in absolute terms, engages in name calling in order to dampen dialogue, or any such behavior, I think that's the problem. And if a liberal came in here spewing extreme gun control shit I'd react the same way

The only normal people I've met with guns have been dancers carrying to protect themselves from weirdo customers. The only people I've met who openly advocate against gun control in real life have been a meth head bartender and his meth head hooker girlfriend. A club manager who has a reputation for raping fob Cubans. A junkie selling fake lean. A trick known for trying to get dancers to fuck in exchange for free food from the pizza place he works at.

The 22-year-old man who shot and killed the would-be mass shooter at the Indiana Greenwood Park Mall was armed because of “constitutional carry.” There are 25 states where a gun permit is not required under constitutional carry, including Indiana. The good guy with a gun has been identified as Elisjsha Dicken. He fired 10 shots at the gunman, hitting him an unknown number of times. He had no formal gun training but was taught about firearms by his grandpa.

There are many situations where guns are used for self defense. It probably happens on a daily basis somewhere in America. However, the media chooses not to cover it. It doesn’t fit their narrative. And, if you consider that the threat of a gun can prevent a crime, then guns owned by good guys prevents crime daily. Just consider that the Indiana shooter chose a gun free zone for his crime, not a rifle range.

Consider Switzerland. They have mandatory military training and a very high rate of gun ownership. Most homes have at least one gun, including military style rifles. Owning and learning to properly use a gun is part of their culture. The murder rate in Switzerland is extremely low. They haven’t had a mass shooting incident for over twenty years. Additionally, property crime is quite low. Who wants to break into a home knowing there is a semi-automatic weapon there and someone trained to use it.

Yet you disagree with making a period of service mandatory, we had this conversation, you can't support mandatory military service in Switzerland, and oppose the exact same thing, here in America, two minutes later, it shows your true objective.

Gun control has no effect on terrorists. Once terrorism starts, all guns will be illegal.

"Soros Backs Beto’s Latest Campaign With $1 Million Donation" Left-wing billionaire and investor George Soros donated $1 million dollars to a PAC supporting the gubernatorial campaign of Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke. Abbott has made national headlines for his stances on immigration and abortion, while O’Rourke is well known for his vacillating rhetoric on gun rights — O’Rourke famously supported gun confiscation in his 2020 presidential run before dialing that stance back in the early days of his gubernatorial race. However, O’Rourke has pivoted back to his earlier hardline stance in the wake of the horrific school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, where a lone gunman killed 19 children and two teachers. Soros has an extensive history of donating to progressive political causes, and in the last decade has pumped $40 million into dozens of local district attorney races, resulting in laxer law enforcement in many of America’s major cities. The billionaire investor has involved himself in Texas politics before. Last year, he donated $500,000 to help combat a ballot initiative that would have compelled the city of Austin to hire hundreds of new police officers. [view link] This Soros MF has done extensive damage to this country, as well as many other countries around the world, and def has plenty of blood on his hands - what an ahole - if there was someone I wished would kick-the-bucket tomorrow it would be this MF.

Update on Indiana Good Samaritan Ison explained to WRTV, Dicken's first shot at the gunman was from 40-50 yards away and it appeared the very first shot hit the gunman. Dicken was able to hit the gunman with additional rounds. On Tuesday, Johnson County Coroner Mike Pruitt said an autopsy found the suspect had eight gunshot wounds and none were self-inflicted.” Dickens took 15 seconds to take down the gunman. That’s 240 times faster than the 400 highly trained professionals at Uvalde school

The Uvalde gun massacre in May killed 22 and made global headlines. I was in Poland at the time and visited one of Warsaw's top strip clubs a day or two after. In talking with a young, beautiful blond dancer the topic came up. She couldn't comprehend why gun violence was so out of control in the US. I explained to her, in the US guns are popular and a symbol of freedom for many people. But along with that freedom comes a large number of gun deaths. She absolutely could not make any sense of it. And I was unable to help her make more sense of it either.

^^ I consider myself a pretty good shot with most handguns. The other day I took a qualification test (for a NEW JERSEY carry license if you can believe that, lol) and had to fire 50 rounds at varying distances from 7 yards up to 25 yards, which doesn't sound very far but the 25 is not so easy. It's a little farther than I typically practice with a handgun, and if I do it's usually a 357 magnum revolver or a 45 cal 1911, both with competition sights. For this test I was using a Walther PK380 with iron sights. It's okay for a relatively inexpensive and low powered handgun. Anyway I scored 100%, 50 out of 50, but a couple of the 25 yard shots were close to the borderline on an FBI-Q (the bowling pin target) and this was at a shooting range in a safe controlled environment. Now you take this guy, Dicken, with a 9mm Glock at 40+ yards, and the surprise/shock of what was happening, the obvious risk/danger/anxiety that comes with that, the fact that he was going against a psycho with a rifle, and I'd say this dude is somebody no one should ever try to fuck with. That's really badass.
