(As i type this i have a Glock 26, 38 special and Ar-15 in my closet safe.)
I agree. I have no ccw but It is to the point now im gonna get one to defend myself from the gun nuts. Yes im starting to fear the legally carrying
ccw populace as much as criminals.
I love the 2nd amendment, but like anything else people can be nutty over certain things and their is in fact quite a few gun nuts on ATS (two in
this thread) who seem to justify anyone with a gun killing a unarmed person for any reason just as long as they claim they fear for their life. Same
way a hot headed crooked cop gets away with violence by using the (they were resisting arrest line.)
This is ignorance people, the guy had a gun those other guys were drunk. The way some of you people see things their would be gun fights across bars
and clubs numbering in the thousands every weekend.
This guy totally dealt with drunks (or anyone for that matter) the wrong way. He came up their with a video and brandishing his firearm playing John
Wayne. He also said they had weapons how does he know?
Im just sick of cowards who cant whip their way out of a wet paper bag defending the shooting of unarmed people over minor disagreements.
I could have handled this situation a dozen different ways without needing the gun.
Firstly I dont blame the guy for carrying the gun, it is his right and its a good idea to have it in case he really needed it. But he should not have
been walking down the street brandishing it right off the bat. The gun should have been concealed and only used if it was really needed with 100%
certainty and without antagonizing the situation.
He should have told the fellas, hey how are you guys doing tonight? Im your neighbor down the street and the music is a tad loud do you mind cutting
And if they said no and # off and were unreasonable as a lot of drunks are he should have immediately went back to his house and recalled 911 and let
the police deal with it. Those guys weren't that aggressive, I bet if he had done what I said no one would have gotten killed.
Raul Rodriguez appears to have rehearsed his buzzword ccw class lines on 911 before pulling the trigger, we just have people itching to use their
guns on live human targets and using SYG law to get away with it, or try to. And I have no doubt some people here on ATS would love the chance to
shoot someone. They may deny it but im not buying it!!
Also if the police found the neighbors where in compliance pop in some ear plugs and deal with it. Then one night when its quiet at the partiers house
blast your own music loud and return the favor. Blast some crappy music that most people dislike like maybe opera or something.
The way some gun nuts see it, and going by there logic of when its ok to shoot someone I could have legally killed a dozen or so people while working
security and gotten away with it....
I mean seriously people this killing unarmed people if they piss in your direction is not gonna help gun right advocates its gonna hurt them. And of
course the firearms profiteer is gonna agree with the shooting. :/
This isnt the 1800s, and you aren't Wyatt Earp. Grow some balls and learn how to deal with situations without having to automatically resort to using
