Only two ways to deal with people.
Hahaha.

So glad everything in his world is black or white,

The Armed Citizen:
http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-eric-frein-trooper-manhunt-20141030-story.html

A seven-week dragnet in the woods of northeastern Pennsylvania came to an end Thursday night with the capture of survivalist Eric Frein, who is accused of killing a state trooper and wounding another one last month.

His arrest, which ended one of the largest manhunts in Pennsylvania history, was confirmed by a state police spokeswoman. She declined to comment further.

Frein — a self-trained sniper and survivalist — was not captured in the woods he knew so well, but at an airport hangar in the Poconos, roughly four miles from where he was last seen earlier this week, according to a law enforcement source who spoke to the Los Angeles Times on condition of anonymity.

He was taken into custody without incident. “No fight at all,” the source said.

So another "revolution" is over, and the Government (a.k.a. We, the people) won. The chickenhawks here conveniently forget that their mythical Second Amendment revolution involves murdering cops or soldiers and they quickly disown those who actually follow through on the right-wing anti-government demagoguery.

The Chief,

this Italian carbinieri may have been the toughest little guy you knew, but to look at this poster I don't know if they are recruiting for the Italian military or the Village People;

The Armed Citizen:
Secret Service agents arrested an Iowa man outside the White House on Wednesday after a search of his vehicle uncovered a rifle.

R.J. Kapheim, 41, of Davenport approached and spoke with a uniformed Secret Service officer stationed near the White House. He told the officer that someone in Iowa had told him to go to the White House and that he had driven from there to Washington, according to Secret Service spokeswoman Nicole Mainor.

Officers searched the man’s vehicle, which was parked nearby on Constitution Avenue. They found a .30-30 rifle and ammunition in the trunk. Kapheim was arrested and is charged with possessing an unregistered firearm. He may face additional charges, according to the agency.

Eyetalian coppers are still pretty, uh, you-know-what. Dunno, maybe these
two were on their way to an audition, or maybe a phone booth stuffing contest.

GUn debate?



Black Friday, we set s store record of 114 guns sold. THe NV "NICS" system serviced some 1800 plus calls statewide from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm.

Nationally, back ground check systems averaged 3 calls per second for the entire day. That equals 129,600 guns sold Friday.


Long guns, handguns, ARs, you name it.

On a different note:

I drive a 4wd for weekend climbing / camping trips because I prefer to forest or 'bandit' camp rather than pay to camp in a campground. The 4wd let's me camp in places where I am far less likely to require a handgun, which I don't have.

So the 4wd helps replace the firearm and avoid camping in roadside places where a jacking is more likely.

A retarded guy with a knife was shot to death in Compton last night.
How can you feel threatened by a knife when you have a 40 cal, a shotgun,
a radio to call for help, and probably an assault rifle in the trunk?

And what happened to Tasers?

The cops need better hiring parameters, more civilian oversight, and a lot
better training. Oh, yeah, and they need to learn the word 'restraint'.

The Armed Citizen:
A manhunt is underway in West Virginia after authorities say four people were shot to death at three locations in northern West Virginia Monday morning.

West Virginia State Police say they’re looking for 39-year-old Jody Lee Hunt of Westover, W.V. He is believed to be driving a black 2011 Ford F150 with a blacked out license plate and a cover over the bed.

Hi Gary,

I respect your point of view. But this reminds me of a conversation I had with my Bostonian sister recently (an Elizabeth Warren supporter.) She said "I cannot understand how we could have such different views when we are looking at the same facts." I said nothing since the answer is obvious.

You preface your posts, which describe terrible events involving shooters, with the title "Armed Citizens." I respectfully suggest you change that to armed criminals, or armed madmen. Something like that would be much more accurate.

Kris, just consider it my weak parody of the American Rifleman's The Armed Citizen column which touts all the good done by a heavily armed society. I disagree, obviously!

I grew up with BB guns and had a Glenfield .22 single shot at an early age, but think the NRA backed militarization of society bodes ill for all of us.

So, Gary, your heart is obviously in a good place so I'll ask you the same
question which no gun control advocate ever answers cogently or coherently:

How you gonna go about disarming 200 million people?
