    Cliffs: 2 burglars enter property, separate men and women and prepare to rape all the women and kill everyone execution style.

    Plus here's the link to the digg, there's actually a surprising amount of pro-gun/anti-liberal comments. Here are a few fun ones.

    And the reply:
    :bowrofl:


    My reply
    There's tons there if you look. Most of the pro-gun arguments are valid, and most of the anti-gun arguments are baseless and irrational. Go figure. I can't find it now but one basically said "If gun control advocates had their way VT never would have happened." :hs: It sucks people like this can vote.

    digg is such a shithole, slashdot seems so much more libertarian.

    Seriously, it's amazing how irrational/illogical some antis are. The general consensus I get from most of the liberal comments is that guns should not be carried, in that situation you are better off not resisting, even if he saved 9 friends it was an irresponsible move to defend himself, the fact that he accidentally shot a friend means it was not worthwhile to defend himself, etc.

    So according to liberals if someone with a weapon (gun/knife) threatens to rape you and you suspect he will kill you afterwords, you should just sit there and not resist. I think if any of those people were put into that situation they wouldn't be thinking "wow, I sure am glad we don't let law abiding citizens carry weapons anymore."

    What other?

    There seems to be no shortage of upper level IT people and open source icons that are pro gun too, including noteable examples like http://www.catb.org/~esr/guns/ Its why events like defcon have a shoot as part of the annual schedule. Come to think of it I don't think I know any security people that I think are competent that are anti gun.

    The fact that I don't see this on CNN pisses me off to no end.

    I read this on GPDO. First thing that came to my mind was "Why was it in his back pack?" I carry in my house, even when I'm drinking.

    They would have had to identify the body by the dental records after I was done with him.

    He risked his life to save his family/friends.

    Something an anti knows they lack the sack to do.

    She definitely couldn't have been shot by the intruder. She was "hit in the crossfire".

    Gotta get the digs in where you can.

    "crossfire" goes both ways.

    I know of people that did it on their person when they were in school. I was like the majority of college kids and wasn't into carrying when I was in school.

    There were a lot of strongarm robberies/beatings on a trail next to a parking lot of, and near the school that I went to. I had my CPL for my final quarter when I had a class that got out when it was dark. Carrying in one's backpack seems silly though, if someone robs you at school, the first thing they're going for is your backpack. It's kinda like purse carry, better than not carrying, but worse than carrying on your body.

    Actually, let's not. It's irrelevant.
