you used the phrase "results matter"

doesn't your selective implementation or warrant concideration?

the prosecutor's expert witness points out that the slug removed from Ms. Steinle was flattened. there was a divot in the concrete that matched a plausible clear line of travel by ricochet.

for a person so afraid of the guvmint wilmot you sure seem to lack empathy for the man under the hot bulb with cops prodding left and right to get you to say something, to say anything. too bad no one told him to STFU when the pigs show up.

If picking up a gun and irresponsibly playing with it is the crime here, then lock me up. (sure, sure, he was in a place where to do so was inappropriate, etc.): I'd call it manslaughter.



v as you have pointed out, wilmot, his story has changed repeatedly. almost like he constructed (probably under intense scrutiny) various versions to try and please the Pigs/save his ass.

Was he playing with the gun after he was shooting at seals?

His account differs from your version of events

You think Murder 1, wilmot?

any charge must be 'defined' for the jury during its instruction in order for it to be tasked at reaching a verdict,

how was manslaughter defined for the jury in this case?

aside from the charge actually being 'involuntary manslaughter"...

If you're not really a "gun guy" I would go with a 38 special revolver. Any brand will be fine. Get about a four to six inch barrel and a grip that is comfy.

Pros: Will do the job and pleasant to shoot. Not too pricey. Extremely simple, so no cycling of the slide to load. No jamming and you can just pull trigger through missfires. You can pistol-whip people with it with confidence. Easy to check to see if loaded. Does not require a magazine.

Cons: shoots six rounds, so hit something quickly. Not fast to reload. People will think you are not a serious gun person if you don't have some sort of semi-auto. You might be mistaken for an old cop.

those 8 shot S&W 357s are great to leave mounted by the guest bed, in the closet, etc, in case kids visit, meth-heads come and steal my $$$ elk shed pile (again), coyotes f*#k with my dog (again), or I wanna just shoot through all the walls in the house at 2am for some reason. the little fowling pelletrounds might be interesting to alternate with some of those queer little rubber ball cartridges for "home use/defense"

I'm going with trip wires and punji sticks. Less collateral damage.

i mean, whatever's handy, right? there's that sharp old machete from your trustafari ex's crazy cool mom, the sod spade, the double-headed beaver-pointed birch clobberstick, the pick mattock handle you found in the dumpster, the bear spray, etc. guns are such wonderful and demonstrably omnipermanent penetrating pseudophalli thoughs. I like guns.

I don't go to theaters any more. The back double doors of the 300 seat college lecture halls snapped like mousetraps to my ear...but the dudes packing 50 cal six guns in ice cream halls don't really make me feel much better.

I dunno, sure hate to be outgunned though. Nobody likes a small pecker, pseudo or other.

Short 12 ga. pump or auto. If you're worried about cleaning up afterward, you are worrying about the wrong thing.

Airsoft M134-A2 motorized Gatling gun.

 550 fps
 3000 rpm
 6 rotating barrels
 2000 round internal hopper magazine
 CO2 or compressed air (150 psi)
 12 volt drive motor





CNC machined from metal alloy and constructed to a 1:1 scale, the M134-A2 looks as good as it performs and encourages the enemy to surrender, even before those barrels start spinning.

If you have a little skill a 9mm Cobra Derringer should suffice and there wont be any gore on the carpet.

Big D giving firearm advice?
Looks like the devil needs long - johns for Christmas.


Nobody really needs a gun, right? I mean, if I want to hunt pigs with a knife you're all good with that, right? Oh wait, California's specifically banned that too. Something about it being cruel you the animal I think...

I agree. Lots of good advice in this post. Especially the last sentence.

Thanks, Jody. I actually read many of those sentiments the other day and added a few of my own.

Now personally, I like a .45 with a double column magazine. Currently I have an FN. I shot it with a female friend a while back and it failed to cycle because she limp wristed it. It also won't shoot Walmart White Box ammo (Winchester cheapo). So that puts it in the dog house for general use. It shoots fine in my hands and I run a hotter load in it.
