Posted on 08/06/2013 3:17:31 PM PDT by SWAMPSNIPER
The world the people behind Mayors Against Illegal Guns inhabit seems to be mighty black and white. With maybe a slight green tinge to the sky. Mark Glaze, executive director of MAIG, believes that someone should only be allowed to use a gun to defend themselves if their attacker also has a one. In his opinion, the lack of a gun indicates that the attacker just wants to have a fistfight. Yeah, well, tell that to the two people per day in this country who are beaten to death with their attackers bare hands.

How about this advice: Shoot first and ask questions later.
What if they attack you with a pointed stick?
BTW, it's good to see you back on FR.
Pray for a termite attack!
or a Moose, one once bit my sister...
Thanks, it’s good to be back.
So this creep wants a 90 year old 100 lbs granny who has a gun should not shoot a 20 something 230 lbs male who is beating her and trying to rape her.
Just when you think the left has gone full retard and can’t be any dumber they turn it up to “11”.
If you attack me and you don’t have a gun you’ve just made a terrible (and most likely fatal) mistake because I do and I will use it.
Never pick a fight with an old man, he will just kill you.
How about Obama's son's quit assaulting people? Idiots!
Alices in Dunderland.
Virtually all people who honestly bear guns take a sense of very serious responsibility with them (sometimes I do wonder with police stories, but at least our private militia is that way). They don’t fire shots at people on larks! (And neither did Zimmerman... the idea that he led on an attack so that he could eventually shoot the Skittles kid is so fantastic that it seems the advocates of the idea are taking hallucinogens.)
MAIG is German for “retarted, sir” - right?
How is your knife-throwing accuracy? The victim doesn't know the assailant or his training,
Most of these idiots are so overcome with gun phobia that they just simply cannot be rational. Problem is, we shouldn’t allow the insane to take part in decision making, and they are.
The paucity of the anti-gun arguments should alienate not just gun owners, but anyone who appreciates a well-reasoned debate. These people are like children who take a stand then find the flimsiest “logic” to support it. It’s hard to believe some of them are adults, let alone people in leadership positions.
Those that have never been exposed to violence always tell on themselves when they start talking about issues of violence. They have never experienced the result so they are more likely to soft pedal the issue. Let one get their nose broken and come back and tell us what is acceptable.
My mobility scooter tops out at 4.5 mph, don’t count on me doing any running, even if I was of a mind to!
It is a spiritual issue (a kind of demonizing idolatry) leading to thinking disorder. Now sometimes blaming items seems to have some thought put to it even if that in fact is not the root cause of the evil, when the use is empirically seen to be usually to the ill. Most street drugs are that way and so most people agree with bans, even if grumbling about the side effects. But by now everyone and their dog should know that trying to cut down on “illegal guns” by limiting “legal guns”... just plain will not work. Unlike street drugs, you can defend yourself with a gun and as the chaos level in society rises the importance rises.
Or a bannana?
Oh man: late to the thread I find y’all have already said it all. Sorry for my tardiness.
What if someone attacks you with a blow torch...or with a D9 bulldozer...or with a vast of cow manure...or...?????? The MAIG spokesman is a pin-headed moron.
So women or the men who stand about 5’5 130 lbs or less should take the beating from the man who is a foot taller and 50-100 lbs heavier. Yeah, just get in a fist fight with your much larger and stronger attacker. You’ve got an equal chance. (snicker)
Rachel doesn’t think an azzwhuppin is any big deal!
Next they will be asking why people are carrying more than one gun. /s
I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
where u ben at??
The granny should assume the hulking brute has no firearm and then engage him in a fist fight where she’d have an equal chance. Under no circumstances should the granny be armed...no knives, tasers, or hat pins either. Hand bags and purses might have to banned as well. Because the cases of 80-90 yr old grannies attacking young, large males has been getting out of hand. (snicker)
Tell THAT to a woman being raped at knifepoint, you jack*ss.
The bigger and stronger don’t need guns, unless you have one. In fact, they would likely prefer a gun free society.
Because they can then beat you to death at the time and place of their choosing.
Once again, liberalism is a MENTAL DISEASE.
Everyday we see and read examples of their mental incompetence.
These mental zombies have no business in any position of leadership whatsoever, not even dog catcher. They belong in an ayslum far away from the rest of society. They are insane...to the core...and going to get the rest of us all killed if they have their way.
There is only one equalizing force that will work for a woman. A gun provides me distance from a man. He can live if he stays away from me, but if he comes after me, I have to shoot him if I want to live. I can't afford to wait and see if he just breaks my ribs rather than crushing my head.
This whole idea is nuts. It would go something like this:
“I'm going to attack you but let's set the guidelines for this encounter. I'll break your arm, but since you are right handed, I'll break your left arm so you can still write and throw a ball.”
“Okay, you break my left arm and I'll give you a concussion, but not one that will kill you.”
The fight begins with those rules, but one has just lied and taken a handgun out of his waist and kills the other one, saying before the guy dies, “I lied, you sorry bastard.”
For me, I have no choice but to shoot if it is a man attacker, that's just the way it is.
What if the perp is 6’6” tall and 300lbs. And the ‘victim’ is 5’0” and 110lbs?
As I recall, Ted Bundy never used a gun. Just a tire iron or other blunt object and simply being bigger than the victims.
... and only if both weapons are equally matched and after both parties have walked 30 paces from each other and each has a ‘second’ as a witness ...
Other rules here:
You said it, it’s the lib’s never-ending quest to be sure everything is “fair” so they can feel good about themselves and what they believe in.
Well cops have been killing people who they thought had a gun even though they didn’t have one. Then too, they’ve killed obviously unarmed citizens. So if cops can, then .....
Bet the moose liked cheese
Or if you don’t have a 16 ton weight?
You forget she’s supposed to ask them to stop and then pee on them if they don’t. Or maybe it was vomit on them.
It's the raspberries that worry me most.
Jack the Ripper never used guns either.
Nor do most North American serial killers.
I don’t remember where I read it, but I think it was in one of Ayoob’s books where a guy emptied his gun in a big brute who was attacking him.
Every bullet hit a vital area and the attacker died.
But before he died, he beat the fellow who shot him to death.
As I recall, he shot him with a .38.
Three morals to the story.
You can get beat to death with bare hands.
Carry a big caliber, loaded with HP’s.
Try to break the pelvis.
The X-ring or the 9 ring are not the best areas, regardless of what you have been taught.
The bottom of the 7 ring is the best spot.
Unless you can hit between the eyes every single time.
And you can’t.
Oh sure, I’d have a really good chance in a fistfight, as I’m a 5’2” woman, and not as young as I once was.
Remember to always store a large fighting knife with your gun, and to carry them both in household defense. It’s a technique that goes back to trench warfare in World War I; and what’s the inside of a building, other than a trench with a ceiling?
When I was a range control officer at Ft Leavenworth KS, I met a granny who was so accurate with a .22 she could call the eye in a full size target at 25 yards (yes yards, not feet). Turns out she was an OSS operative during WWII.
Nicest little lady you could meet - DAMN scary accurate. In all my life I only met one person who as as good as she was and he was a Major with Delta.
Rules of a gunfight:
1) gun beats no gun
2) fast beats slow
3) accuracy beats caliber
4) caliber beats velocity
5) Many holes beat one hole
