Hey Gryph!

Are you alright man? This post does not seem characteristic of you. I consider you an ATS friend, but this post does not seem characteristic of you. There are no hidden meanings here...I am legitimately asking if you are ok.

I will address the rest of this post later.


Perfectly well, thanks for asking.


I would have said the same about your post that I responded to!

For more, I'll wait to see what you have to say.

Within the legal realm, most is correctly stated.

Personally, I don't see the issue with shooting someone from stealing.

There has gotten in the life, a loss of respect for other people's property. Maybe this would return the balance and encourage people to not engage in unlawful acts.

There is no law that states I must give due process to anyone. I would really like to see such a law, if you believe it exists.

If that were the case, then I couldn't throw someone out of my house, couldn't defend my life with force and so on.

Wait.....is it next to the Separation of Church and State???

I'd like to see you come out and state that you have no issue with teachers and school officials shooting and killing children.

Not generic references to the good ol' days, or protecting one's self from home invasions.

Go ahead. Tell us how butchering children in their classrooms makes perfect sense to you. Don't be coy.

Because that's what we're discussing here. We're not talking about right to carry, home defense, good guys kill bad guys with guns, self-defense ... we're talking about literal carte-blanche to shoot kids if, in the opinion of a school official, such is done in the name of "protecting property."

Go on. Let's see the courage of your convictions.

Define deadly force..This is kind of not surprising as well due to the fact that such laws and bills are coming out by factory press. I wonder when that change Obama promised will take place

Why ask me about experience outside of London & then disregard what I said? With another assumption, no less.

Your experience seems to be that of Holiday travel. If you offer input into sword fighting, and have only saw one at a museum, yet read a bunch of books on it, you have no experience.

*sigh* If you are going to be insulting, or attempt at a cute form of clever insults....at least get the terminology correct.
A "Hollow Point" is a round. A "Clip" is not an external box that holds said rounds. It is an internal device, feed typically through the top of a firearm, like the M 1 Garand. A "Magazine" is a detachable box which holds said rounds, and us usually connected from the bottom of a firearm. Terms and the definitions behind them matter. At least attempt to come across as knowledgeable.

Yet without due process and trials who to say someone wont get it wrong and kill someone innocent?
That's why law and trial are in place.

Plus death and killing should never be taken so lightly.

To do so just perpetuates a culture of violence.


There are other options to cut down on stealing. No easy options there are prison and rehabilitation system out there that have cut crome and re offending rates down dramatically compared to US and UK crime rates.


Just shooting your problem away to me is quite disturbing and just sends a message out that life means nothing and killing people is something to be taken lightly. A message that could encourage less than stable people to hurt others.

People like macman will never be convinced. Judging by his avatars now and in the past, he is a military man or at least has military training - meaning he has had the empathy sucked out of him and replaced by an extremely twitchy trigger-finger.

If you move past the hyper dramatic rants of a Progressive, and come back to Earth, let me know.


1. Flying monkeys (from any source). Not on topic.
2. President Obama. Not on topic.
3. Your Wicked Witch of the West Fantasy. Not on topic. (Though if you have pics of yourself in the dress and hat, we'd love to see them.)
4. Your obsession with Progressives (Even though you display no understanding of the subject). Not on topic.

No one has said you wanted to shoot children for taking a pencil, have they? If so, quote it.

You bluster about doing the crime and taking the punishment. The subject that IS on topic here is the use of deadly force against school children by teachers to protect property.

You've stated several times that you have no problem with using force to protect property, so, I know this is complex, but stay focused ... You: it's okay to use deadly force against someone for theft ... Thread topic: Concern about proposed Texas law to exonerate teachers from the use of deadly force against students while protecting school property.

All I suggested, with no element of anything remotely Progressive involved, was for you to go on record and stand up for your convictions and state, clearly, that you are in favor of kids being shot by teachers protecting school property.

Do you lack that courage?

"The scenarios presented I referred to was the shooting of a child over a pencil. Stupid? Hell yeah. Suggesting that someone on this thread would value a computer over a child's life? Another stupid remark.
First of all, I called the scenarios being presented as being stupid, not you. IF you choose to accept that designation as your own, that is your problem. Since I cannot recall calling any specific individual a moron, I would surmise you accepted a generic statement as yours previously as well. "




Ahem. I perused some of your posts, and see you can scarcely get through a thread without calling someone a "moron", or "stupid". It's easily part of your vernacular. Perhaps you don't understand how off-putting those type remarks are.



Panic can sometimes cause otherwise good people to do stupid things. That's my concern.


The whole purpose of the legislation is to prevent the stupid crap that happened at Newton, IMO.

Of course.


The difference is one where the sheep have a guardian who can stop a predator and where the sheep just run around being slaughtered by a predator with impunity.


With impunity? The justice was swift and punitive. Most of those shooters died at the scene from gunshot wounds.


Your choice.


I doubt it. The lone star state can perhaps be the test ground for this type legislation. I doubt many others will follow suit.

Again crying about insults that never happened.



I'll refer to two parts of your 2 post diatribe...


Go back to the post you replied to...

Where did I mention the Fedora?

& don't lie, when people read the back and forth they'll see it was you who continuously brought it up in some sort of attempt to discredit my manhood...


& then you deny that it's an attempt to bully...

& then turn that around and imply that people are too sensitive....



Get a clue...

I'm not sensitive to a single word you've said and continue to smile at your repeated failed attempts to have a real discussion without ad hominem, deflection, and repetitive lunacy.


But being a bully, & not a very effective one, you probably don't understand that people have no need to be sensitive to notice when someone is trying to push them around...

All that takes is observation.

We no longer value life, and we now see (some of us, increasingly) a rise in the number of people that think everything is about them - and their things. Do you think someone who steals is a kind of monster? More so than someone that would shoot that person?

Theft is a crime but not a capitol offense

You actually think it's OK to kill someone for stealing your car?

He didn't bother to post this part of the pc that specifies when deadly force is authorized...

Sec. 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:
(1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.41; and
(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:
(A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime; or
(B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from escaping with the property; and
(3) he reasonably believes that:
(A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or
(B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.
