Congrats on not losing it today brother. I know that seeing different things that are not right can set of waves of anger even when it is not your situation to get involved in.


I appreciate that. I could go on and on about times I put myself into situations that needed to be deflated but there isn't a story in that. Those situations ended with no conflicts. Just a bunch of people standing around deciding to not use violence that time.

Those are my favorite moments. When nothing happens.

What type of work are you looking for and in what general area/part of the state?

How about Cesar? Kidding

I'm north of Seattle. My location is on my avatar. I'm not shy. Snohomish

I'd take anything that pays right now. I think another way to put your question would be to ask how best I could contribute. I'm good with people. And I'm good in tense situations. I'm too old for fire, military or police.

This is like asking me what I'd do with a million dollars. It seems a bit daunting to answer realistically. I'd like to make movies again. I'd like to bring other people's vision to light

And eventually my own.

Thanks again

I'm skilled in fighting. Talented in handling dangerous situations. Proficient in survival.

Thanks again to the universe that my skills were useless.

I was raised believing that we all have a purpose. Some times we don't recognise the moment that would bring our talents to light


you'll never hear about what i did today. I walked among you prepared to do whatever I had to to stop anyone from hurting innocent people. Thank god, nothing happened. Again.
you'll never hear about what i did today. Because it wasn't news. It was us...living or lives.




Reminds me of "Hobo with a shotgun" I guess its a good thing

I'm connected via my phone. It's no easy but if you haven't looked for a job lately then how important the internet is to searching probably escapes you.

Imagine what else I sacrifice to keep my phone.

Hero.

Stepping in to save the day to raptures and applause from all the nation for being a "true American".

Honestly, the more I read on this forum the more I realise just how f*cked up in the head you lot are.

What's more likely to happen is that you'll see something happening, misinterpret it, and end up shooting some innocent person/s.

Just who are you to decide what is right or wrong, to decide the fate of another, even if they are breaking the law, and turn yourself into judge, jury, and executioner.

God, some of you are so arrogant in your belief of your right to impose your beliefs and morals on others, there's no wonder your society is so screwed.

You're not a hero or a "good guy" (as the dumbasses who watch too much Hollywood bilge would put it), you're a danger to yourself and others and need locking away before you kill someone.

Without a gun the possibilities of you shooting anybody would be significantly lower.

America it's time to give up your guns, the only people you need protecting from now are yourselves.

I think they should raise the ratings system for violent movies in America to 65 because give one of these idiots a gun and they think they're Rambo.

We have a police force for catching our criminals, we don't need armed vigilantes / psychotic gun wielding killers.

Funnily enough I had an image in my mind that the OPs favourite movie would be Rambo.

Think of the similarities - "practically homeless" (whatever that means - surely you're homeless or you aren't), ex army veteran, "all alone" (no contact with family), can't get a job, "proficient at survival", "skilled at fighting," etc.

I bet he dresses in army fatigue type clothes like Rambo did, and maybe even has long hair and wears a headband.

It's like he's actively, subconsciously or otherwise, turning his life into a real life version of the story of Rambo.

Edit - in fact I bet when he's wondering around the streets with a Rambo scowl on he's got the theme tune running through his head - "it's a long road, when you're on your own...."

Rambo theme song lyrics - compare with the Ops story and perception of the world:

It's a long road
When you're on your own **
And it hurts when
They tear your dreams apart **
And every new town
Just seems to bring you down **
Trying to find peace of mind
Can break your heart
It's a real war **
Right outside your front door I tell ya **
Out where they'll kill ya **
You could use a friend *****
Where the road is
That's the place for me
Where I'm me in my own space **
Where I'm free that's the place
I wanna be
'Cause the road is long yeah
Each step is only the beginning
No breaks just heartaches
Oh man is anybody winning
It's a long road
And it's hard as hell
Tell me what do you do
To survive **
When they draw first blood
That's just the start of it
Day and night you gotta fight **
To keep alive
It's a long road ...

I never like to see a person sell off their firearms. I have the first one ever bought for me by my dad. A 410 gauge shotgun.Sits in that closet over there with a rifled slug in the chamber. Ive never bought a firearm just to sell. I pretty much keep them all. What happened to me a few years ago could happen to any one. And it does everyday, in everystate,in allmost every city & town.

I prefer open carry. I have found no one wants to single out the guy with the gun on his hip. I'm not some gung ho man with a gun that says dont mess with me. I mind my own business and expect others to do the same. I have been in numerous situations as to where I thought I may have to un-holster my weapon. Cooler heads prevailed.

I have been asked to leave business's. As to why I allways ask? I'm told can't have a gun in here. And I respond with" Without a sign stateing no weapons allowed, you have zero legal right to telll me to leave. Show me the signage and the NOT ALLOWED statement and I will comply. If not I'm shopping.

Ive had the law called, and stood there as Law Enforcment backed me up. Yea, you get some looks and now and again a comment. The comments are mostly the same " Is that a real gun" Are you a cop? Why do you carry a gun? I allways answer that last one the same way," because a cop is to damn heavy". Before you sell off your firearms. If your close to me, I would be willing to look at what you have and maybe make you an offer. Not to buy, I can keep them safe for you and assure you you get them back. Send me a u2u and I'll lay it out for you. Also, what do you do for a living?

You got any skills? carpentry, electrical, plumbing, etc? Plenty of those jobs in my area. I have friends who need folks to work. If your serious, so am I. " I have a saying my son says alot, I know it sounds corny but " This too shall pass"

Although I can, relativeliy, appreciate the OP's opinion and thoughts, I can certainly not agree with such ways.

The very reason why such shootings happen is because there are just too many people with this very right sense of justice and reason, believing that they are undoubtedly beyond reproach and never able to commit a crime.

However, no one knows for sure what can happen. When in the streets everybody is a possible firearm carrier, even with good intents (but I personally cannot see any "good" intent in carrying a gun), then that means that for whatever good or bad reason, should an event trigger one of those gunmen's brain into "oww I gotta use my gun now for good reasons", then that means the entire street could rapidly turn into a carnage.

OK, that's not exactly what happened there. But face it, whether you like it or not: if people were not allowed to own and carry guns, then the simple fact would be that most people wouldn't have those guns at home, ready to be used for any nefarious action from a mentally unstable person. Anyone can become mentally unstable for various reasons. And this is what happened.

Now to all those (there will be many) defending the right to defend yourself, the right to this or the right to that, I answer that by making the law, or ensuring it, or making justice by yourself, you basically deny the right to all others, including the potential criminal, to be fairly treated and judged.

What if you shoot a burglar in your garden at night and later find out that the man was stealing just food to feed his children? Yes he was robbing you, but is that fair to have him shot down?

What if you suddenly feel the need to threaten or maybe attack that guy who's suspiciously hanging around in the gardens or in the street around your block, and then you find out you disrupted an undercover police operation of great importance? Is that fair?

Why do people feel the need to be the law, the judge and the justice themselves? Is that any form of trust in your police, justice and government?

I could, just barely, understand it if in very remote places, people would have one firearm at home just in case. And actually, that's essentially the purpose of the law, back then, in its right own historical, political, social, and geographical context. That context has changed.

You want to know? It may be difficult to read this, for some of you. But there is no one else than the US law to blame for those shootings. No one. Because essentially, it's not thugs, crackpots, burglars, drug dealers, criminals, car thieves, rapists, child abusers, or any sort of people that you find in jail, or prefer to find in jail, who do those shootings.

No. It's people just like you or me, not criminals. They are just normal people, who get into some sort of mental trouble. And because they're allowed to own and carry a gun, they end up in some out-of-reality carnage followed by a suicide (in most cases).

If they had not been allowed to have firearms such easily in the first place, then it would not have happened.

So what happens if one day your homelessness and unemployment drives you to depression you start to blame the government and then walk into a government building with your pistol and start shooting?

I always see Americans posting threads like this, talking about themselves like they are some kind of Hollywood hero “I am proficient in hand to hand combat, have extensive weapons training and natural survival instincts, I silently protect society, I wish for no recognition, no reward other that the privilege of defending my community.” It’s really actually quite comical you kind of sound like the poor man’s batman and there is quite a lot of you that do it and then ego rub each other by exchanging war stories.

I have only ever seen Americans do this I am assuming it’s a cultural thing.

The other day I was reading a thread where a member said that the only way the government would get his gun is form his “cold dead hands” and that a tyrannical government would have to fight him for them. When asked about how he would fight against tyrannical government forces and defend himself he give a response similar to this

“I am former Spec-ops with extensive training in weapons, explosives and tactical operations I have spent years studding martial arts and I am a survivalist, I have a vast armoury with over 50 000 rounds of ammo”….. I was half expecting him to go on to say “ I am made of solid metal, I drive a tank and my sperm is not sperm, its bullets, I have cape,” and end with the immortal words “I am chuck noris”.

That is how some of these guys sound.

In the UK we have “hard men” these guys don’t tell you what they are like they just give you a look and you know that it doesn’t matter how many guns you might have if you cross him you will die. These guys don’t mess about they are nasty and with one look would probably make many of these gun fanatics run away crying all the way to the gun club with an embarrassing wet patch around the crotch area.
