    Gun control supporters show outrage

    Tip top on today's news...

    Gun-Control Supporters Show Outrage

    By ANAHAD O’CONNOR
    Published: June 27, 2008

    Gun-control advocates across the country reacted with shock and outrage at the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the District of Columbia’s ban on handguns today, saying the ruling would threaten gun-control measures in other states.

    OUTRAGE

    That's a very powerful word.

    I'm wondering how they felt when our collective rights, protected within law, were trampled.

    Suppose it's a good thing I'm able to defend against the possibility of them expressing their outrage with machetes and other garden tools..

    NRA has immediately affirmed they shall initiate actions following the favorable decision.

    Now we'll see a wide scenario of 'interpretive' rulings by lower courts...

    It's not over, 'til it's over.

    (Tongue planted firmly in cheek ) Machetes and other garden tools must be regulated and banned within the large cities, along with baseball bats, crowbars, kitchen knives and other eating utensils, bricks, writing utensils, shoes, belts, pantyhose, rope, sashes, curtains, curtain rods, chairs, beer bottles, beer glases, nails, hammers, etc. etc. etc. They are ALL just too dangerous!!! If we allow that, what's next? Fingernail files? STOP THE MADNESS!!!!

    It's not guns that kill people, but bad people that kill other people with whatever is available.

    last niter in my town the cops killed a guy with a stun gun. shot him 3 times while 4 other cops watched. he called his girl friend and said she better get home or he was going to bust up her apartment. she called the cops. he tried running from the cops and 1 shot him, he tried getting up and he shot him 2 more times. autopsy showed no medical reason for death. my opinion, I think most cops are to small and are woman. instead of the old days where they wrestle the guy down and handcuff him, now they just shoot in self defence.

    Screw that guy - he conveyed a threat, acted on it, and he fullfilled all the elements of needing to be stopped.

    Cops generally shot to "stop the act" not to "kill" anyone. IF a killing results, that sucks.

    Would YOU wanna wrestle a guy with a stungun? Not me...

    Jim is right.

    The guy should have stayed down.
    Put yourself in the cop's shoes before you condemn.
    If it took three shot from a stun gun to keep him down it isn't the cop's fault

    Have you ever been hit with a Stun gun?

    I have and ONE time is ALL I ever want. No I wasn't doing anything wrong it was during a demonstration.

    Why is it that idiots and criminals expect to do whatever they want without penalty? What has happened to people and their common sense?

    When you turn on the news and see where the guy in Ky goes in and shoots six people how can you blame the cops for using a stun gun on this guy?

    Re: Gun control supporters show outrage

    Gentlemen, before the anti's jump in,. let me clarify, he was NOT SHOT with a STUN GUN, but with a conventional pistol.

    Second, the police today do not learn to use their equipment efficiently any more. A compentent pistol shot could easily have put him down with a leg or knee shot. Howeve,r today it is "Spray and pray ".

    I seriously doubt that you will find a police dept. ANYWHERE that trains officers to shoot a person in the leg, or arm. That happens pretty much only in the movies.

    I'm pretty sure most dept.'s train for a center mass shot. Largest target is the chest area.

    Police are not trained to "wound" a threat, they are trained to put it down.

    Re: Gun control supporters show outrage

    HI guys, I agree that they are trained that way now, because, as I said, most are not trained to shoot accurately under adverse conditions. I admit that it took a year for me to attain this ability, but it certainly served me well in my explorations. I used 5 boxes daily of full power .357 loads.

    When two hi-way patrol men in Calif.had a shootout with some baddies across the three lane freeway and exchanged 200+ shots with no casualties on either side I would say that they are not trained either physically, or psychologically.

    Today, most cannot believe that a pistol is effective beyond across the street. When I was in the Border Patrol in Texas, I learned to make positive hits to 400 meters, probable ones to 600. While I may not hit you every time at 600, I can guarantee that you will get the h-- out of there This presupposes a hi quality revolver, no semi will do that... I used a Smith & Wesson , ,357 Hi way Patrolman, with a 4 " barrel and Keith long range front sights.

    Side thingie, I beat the Mexican national pistol champion. in straight target shooting.

    Affirmative.

    Agreed.

    Trained to STOP the threat... might die, might not die.

    Center of mass has always been the training standard for regular line officers.

    I don't have any enforcement experience.

    It would occur to me that rookies are hired for their abilities to deal with people and resolve problem situations quickly and effectively.

    Then, efficient shooting comes into the list of qualifiers.

    Most departments went to the 14 shot pistols for more than one reason...

    Criminals began to carry increased firepower, and, very few people can exhibit precise accuracy when thrust into high pressure adverse situations.

    Hitting a human size target with a handgun, 4" barrel, at over 1,300 feet is just damn impressive. Especially when done consistently.

    600 meters is just short of 2,000 feet, doubly impressive.
