The "Good Guy with a gun" myth

If a "citizen" has legal justification to fire a weapon, but misses and causes collateral damage, that is not a crime.

Can a police officer be a citizen?
There we go......
You just earned your very own deputy dawg badge......
Hope you can pass the decoder ring test.... its tough kids...

Last I checked, cigs and booze were still very much in movies. But like cigs and booze, I do think responsible advertizing of gunz is a reasonable goal.
Yeah, maybe a warning label like cigs?
'You are twice as likely to murder your partner if you buy this gun'

Edit: apologies, that is backward. 'Warning: if you are thinking you want this gun you are twice as likely to murder your partner. Seek professional help'

"A nine year-old girl in the US has killed her shooting instructor by accident while being shown how to use a high-powered submachine gun."

"The instructor was giving the girl a lesson at a shooting range in Arizona when the recoil from the automatic fire caused her to lose control of the Uzi."
"Charles Vacca, 39, was shot in the head and died after being airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas.
The girl was at the shooting range with her parents, who filmed the lesson.
The footage shows the instructor coaching her as she fires a single shot at a target at the Last Stop shooting range in White Hills, Arizona.
The Uzi then appears to be switched to automatic as the girl pulls the trigger and loses her grip of the weapon."

"The video, edited and released by the Mohave County Sheriff's office, ends abruptly before the instructor is shot."


Fuck the ridiculous American 2nd amendment and the Americano gun culture.

Damn good shooting.

This guy? Not so much...


Texas grand jury declines to indict man accused of killing 9-year-old girl while shooting at armed robber.

The killing happened February 14 at about 9:30 p.m. when Tony Earls and his wife drove to a drive-thru ATM to deposit some cash and a check, according to the district attorney’s office. A man then ran up and put a gun in the wife’s face and demanded their money, car keys and her wallet, the prosecutor’s office said.

The couple initially complied with the robber, handing over the check, cash and wallet, before the robber started to run away, the office said. Earls, who stepped out of the vehicle, said he heard gunshots and believed he was being shot at, so he shot at the robber, the office said.

However, he ended up striking a truck that happened to be driving by at the same time, killing 9-year-old Arlene Alvarez in the backseat, the district attorney’s office said.
What the actual Fuck?????

I personally think that we should be able to restrict advertising of and glorification of gunz in the media just like we do cigs and booze. I'm ok with that.
I personally think that an attempt has been made to make your dream come true.

Going about like I would expect, if not about like you would expect.

Desperate California Anti-Gunners Wreck Junior Shooter Clubs

...
"Due to recent legislation from the California State Assembly, and signed into Law by Gov. Gavin Newsom, the USA Clay Target League, DBA USA High School Clay Target League/California State High School Clay Target League, has been forced by law to suspend all operations within California," USA Clay Target League notes on its website. "California Assembly Bill 2571 … provides for a civil penalty of $25,000 for any and each instance of firearm-related marketing to persons under the age of 18. That includes the '… use, or ownership of firearm-related products…' as well as '…events where firearm-related products are sold or used.'"

The law's chilling effect on shooting sports extends to simple speech involving minors and firearms.

"Due to California Bill A.B. 2571, Junior Shooters is no longer available to juniors (Under 18) from the state of California," the youth-oriented publication warns online. "If you are a minor in California, please do not continue, otherwise, welcome to Junior Shooters."

Understandably, the publishers of Junior Shooters are suing the state of California with the assistance of the Second Amendment Foundation.

"The broad-sweeping law applies not only to 'commercial speech' targeting children or encouraging them to engage in unlawful behavior, but to a great deal of political and educational speech, truthful commercial speech aimed at adults, and speech promoting activities that are perfectly lawful to engage in—even by minors in California," warns their motion for a preliminary injunction, which will be heard in federal court on August 22. "Because the law is not tailored to serving a compelling governmental interest, it violates the First Amendment rights to free speech, assembly, and association."

Of course, A.B. 2571 wasn't sold as an attempt to prohibit passing an appreciation for shooting sports from one generation to the next. It was peddled instead as a restriction on marketing guns to kids, as if there's a danger of tiny tots disguising themselves as their parents to get through the background checks at sporting-goods stores.
