I am still of the opinion some of the people huffing and puffing their chests here in response were there at the scene holding that door shut like the
cowards they really are.
oh yea, gonna kill me some negro chiren today. Got my gun that makes me a real man
Clamoring to gun down idiot teenagers and then praising that suggestion as well, clearly backed with some racial prejudices (they are clear and
obvious from the posts, I dont need to make assumptions) does not make one a hero. it makes you a pussy with a gun.
The man who was beat was a gun owner, but he was a real man and a father, not a pussy with a gun. Again, he is alive with only a bruised ego as
injury, the old white lady is safe, the baby is unharmed, and no funerals have to be arranged. The teenage rejects are being pursued using the normal
criminal investigative proceedings.
I have been in a situation similar as this man in my early adulthood also while I was carrying a weapon. I chose the option of retreat, because the
path was clear and easy, my life was not in imminent danger, and I knew who the assholes were and brought backup at a later date to deal with the
individual that needed a group to deal with me personally. People who are armed in the streets fight each other all the time without having to pull
out a gun.
I am not saying I would have lambasted him for using it. By all means he was within his right in law IMO. But as a real man, he chose a path that
would not tear apart HIS own community and probably put a target on his own back later anyways.
People who have not had to shoot at someone in their own community seem to think it is just easy to shoot someone and then its over. It is not over.
The moment you put holes in a person, whether that person survives or not you have just created a number of enemies who now want their own revenge,
and one day they may get it. It is not a purely mechanical process with no consequences outside of the law. People will want revenge for their sons
and daughters, their friends, their lovers. If you are not a police officer you need to have that on your mind in every situation before you draw that
weapon if your life is not actually in immediate danger.
Not to mention when surrounded by that many at such a close proximity, it would have been very possible they could have easily gained control of his
own weapon, or anyone else in the situation. And then what? Just trust people who have been in a similar situation. if attacked by a mob, and they are
already on your ass, just get the hell out of dodge. Dont try and be a hero. Doing so may actually increase your own chance of death as the mob now
sees a life or death situation right before their very clouded and irrational minds.
