Even Im getting kinda tired of this everyday. Im still shocked people just stood there and did nothing. What good is open carry?
True. A transparent plan. They want a frightened , huddled group of subjects who have no guns at all as they listen to the orders of the mighty armed rulers. Before 1776 that was everybody.
Awww, pooor widdle baby got told no one cares about what she cares about and now has a boo-boo.
Society has people like to thank for people being out of control. They were never raised with any discipline and are now prone to childish outbursts.
In western Texas????? Lol. You forgot your sarcasm.
Nebraska has open carry, in my 42 years ive only seen someone open carry one time.
The good people need to stop sitting around and take action. It does nobody any good for people to walk around with guns, but not use them when needed.
How do you know he wasnt shooting people from his vehicle?
Every time this happens it hits hearts hard and everyone instinctively goes into “how can we stop this” mode. It hurts and everyone is desperately trying to find the cause and the cure.
I've had one happen at an event I almost went to (Gilroy Garlic Festival).
It isn't fun checking in with friends that you know went to the event to make sure they got out alive.
Why don't you reconsider your really, really dumb post, and hit the abuse button on yourself?
I get sick of the false flag and conspiracy nonsense. The only conspiracy that occurs is in the reporting, where killings by Muslims, gays or blacks mysteriously disappear and the only featured ones are by weirdo white incels (involuntary celibates). These are mostly men in their early 20s who are dysfunctional, feel bad and resentful about their inability to find a place in society, and live a borderline life, most of it on-line.
Most are basically leftists or eco-freaks...but are reported by the press as being right wingers, nationalists, white supremacists (although they hate all humanity equally), and Republicans. This is so even though they generally arent members of any party, and even express and post leftist or ecofreak views, etc. So the media is what youve got to look at if you want a conspiracy (intentional or not).
But these things arent being staged and you miss the significance if you think they are.
Likely at least one per State...
Taking on a reported rifle with a pistol is not generally a winning tactic.
Ive seen a few in Pennsylvania, but none in Florida. Ive only been to Texas once but thought everyone carried.
I hope thats the case to be honest.
I take it there are no flat reflective surfaces in your immediate vicinity...
Pistol versus guy in a moving vehicle with a (reported) rifle.
Pistol v. rifle, usually guy with the pistol loses badly - consider also that legally a shooter is responsible for any bullet they fire. Their backstop in this case is a retail district.
You want to be responsible for killing some kid in a store across the street because you couldn’t hit the moving vehicle or you had a bad ricochet?
Another mass shooting.
Someone really, REALLY, wants to confiscate our guns.
The political pressure keeps going up to gut the Second Amendment.
