May 21st, 2008

…in Wisconsin claim that people would shoot each other just for giving them a dirty look.

    True. And it certainly speaks out against having more guns on the streets, doesn’t it?

    Absolutely, grumps. I mean, Heaven forbid that the victim would actually have been able to legally defend himself.

    Ahh, the “withering cross-fire” argument.

    Have you ever been in a real-life situation where one assbag had a gun out and thought, “This will only get better if someone else draws a gun?”

    I didn’t think so.

    Have you ever been had to stop at a stoplight on Capital Drive on a warm summer night and thought, “if one of these people pulls a gun on me, I’m screwed?” Because you would be.

    Whoops. “ever had,” not “ever been had.” Coffee time. ;)

    Did you see that story about the road-rage shooting in Alaska last week? No?

    Weird. Because you can carry concealed with no permit whatsoever up there. I mean, the Anchorage newspaper must be chock full of column after column of all the “gun violence” incidents suffered in such an unregulated environment. Perhaps the vast right-wing conspiracy is suppressing the truth from us again.

    But certainly the rash of shoot-outs in Vermont is in the news, no? I mean, they have the most relaxed “shall issue” concealed-carry permit laws in the lower 48. Surely, the streets of Montpelier are strewn with the corpses from the fallout of this sort of permissiveness. Ah, but the NRA is likely using their political clout to obfuscate the stories of the daily massacres that result from the reckless legalization of self-defense, and deference to that dusty old Constitution thingy…

    No Gravelle, but I have seen licensed CCW people arrested for murder in road rage incidents in New York, New Jersey, Michigan and Texas.

    But talking about higher populated areas kind of shoots your argument down, doesn’t it?

    I’m starting to wonder if we might not have a shooting right on this thread. ;)

    Hmmm…. I have a carry permit. I have a gun. I get mad on the road sometimes, and odd….I’ve never shot anyone. Go figure.
