    cubefarmer that is what I mean I believe their are many many more cases that are unreported. Personally I know of three or four cases where this is true. No crime no report. I know we will never know the real number but that is too bad. I bet it is quite large. I guess you could run some sort of pole to get an estimate but that too is sticky. Many will not respond unless they are very comfortable with the questioner. The whole gun issue gets tricky real quick.

    @G-Whiz The thing is the TSA agents at the airport wear uniforms that look very official and have badges but they are not law enforcement officers. They really are the equivalent of a security guard, and an unarmed guard at that. I do not mean that to demean them. It is just the way it is. They have no arrest authority. I really do not think you want to give these people arrest authority and arm them. Again not to demean them but the requirement for being armed with police authority is higher than the job they have now, the cost of running a program like that would skyrocket, with the additional training alone. Not to mention a possible higher pay grade and Law enforcement retirement. The bottom line is the plump female TSA agent had no business getting involved other than calling the police. It seems that once the attack took place the police arrive very quickly. I would not be surprised if he was not observing in the first place. If anyone reads up on their authority it gets real murky relative to the fourth amendment. It can be a tricky thankless job for not a lot of money. As an American I do not like to be stopped and questioned. I doubt anyone looks forward to security check points.

    This is totally unconstitutional period. The first attack on free speech has been to ban certain words which I can not post here. PC is really Marxist censorship. I personalty would not use them anyway but I do not care how offensive a word is, it should not be banned. If an entertainer uses one of these words then the only price he should pay is loss of some fans not thrown off a show unless it is in response to reduced audience appeal. The key here is if you only allow speech that you find acceptable then that is censorship. If you are printing or publishing lies then that is what libel laws are for. The Marxist have to shut up the rest of us to hide the truth.

    It was refreshing to see the number of people who responded to the situation. It has been my experience that most people turn against the person who first steps forward to say or do something about the aggressor. They want nothing to do with it. I think 911 and the increased security has cost the Airlines many customers. I know I do not fly unless forced to. At one time I would have flown at the drop of a hat but not any more. It is too bad that the lowest common denominator determines how we live.

    TSA agents do not have arrest authority. She would be nothing more than another civilian getting involved. She was not trained to deal with this. She appeared to have some business with the Flight agent at the counter. I hate the idea of going through security and think it should be run as before by contract companies. That being said it is a real crummy job. With all the people you have to deal with I bet they get their share of goons to deal with. The last thing she wants is to deal with one more.

    We will never really know how many have been saved from crime or injury because they were armed. Most of the time after the incident there is no report. There was no crime or injury and they just walk away glad that nothing worse than the encounter occurred. Often they just do not want the grief that attempting to report the incident would precipitate. I would love to know how many times being armed saved someone. That is with out having to shoot or even show the weapon. Just knowing the victim is armed will prevent further violence.

    I know everyone is saying that this guy was so normal. I doubt it. I do not know about everyone else but most people I know have broken up with a girl, had a fight or two, and never grabbed a gun and shot anyone. I hate to say it but this country is becoming a pagan nation. When you take the ten commandments out of your belief system then anything you do is justifiable. With a strong belief system you just do not do certain things because the are wrong. You forgive. You do not get even with everyone who harms you. This idea that you must get even revenge is part of the problem. If you think about it if everyone is driven to get even, to hurt those who hurt you, you have anarchy. A dangerous place to live. Has America turned it face from God. I am by no means a religious zealot. I am no saint but something is wrong in America, for that mater the world.

    Hatchet in hand beats gun in holster every time.
    When you have the uniform on you have to be alert. It is almost impossible to protect yourself form an unprovoked attack like this. If you see a guy with an ax or machete your first thought is what the heck is this. If the guy then attacks you are way behind the power curve.

    O my how could this be a crazy violent religion attracts crazy violent people. Who would have thought such a thing?

  • [11] October 23, 2014 at 12:49pm

    @Rosech I use the word religion simply out of convention, that is how many refer to it. you are dead on correct. It was established by a war lord to control his troops. If you read the koran you can see that is exactly what it is. It is heresy as it is a distortion of Christianity and Judaism too for that matter. The West has never really stood together against islam in a long term concerted effort.

    If you want to eliminate fighting in sports than get serious about it. As long as you give someone just a slap on the wrist for fighting, you will have it. I believe it detracts from the athleticism. If you want to see a fight go to a boxing match or the like. It is not right for someone to get his clock cleaned because he is an expert in say basketball and does not perfect his boxing skills.

    How about you could wear a cross around your neck and not have your head chopped off in places like Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Algeria, (see the monks of Tibhirine), Egypt, Sudan, and a plethora of other Muslim countries. Sharia law says you have three choices, convert, pay the Dhimmi, or die. Not exactly freedom of religion. Islam is a one way street. My way or the highway. Try giving out christian bibles and proselytizing in any Muslim country and see what happens to you.

    There are more than you realize. They do not make the press. They are people who cancel their cable or never get HBO. Some do not get into certain career fields. Some attend religious service a regularly. They are not in your face types they just would like to see a more moral country.

    The French are inundated with Muslims and Jihad. They Get it. Islam is not a religion of peace. Any country with a large Muslims population will live to regret their immigration policy.

    Yup my money is on texting! I think I would have either passed her or backed off enough to avoid the crash which was coming.

    I guess the boxer was not a close to being KOed as the ref thought. Hope the ref got paid well for that bu.. s… call. It was not right to hit the ref but it is sometimes nice to see someone get what they deserve. O by the way boxing is a crooked as it has ever been.

    never hand a gun to a stranger without having another one for your own protection.as he raised the gun to point at you, you have the time for a well placed shot.

    what are those changes because as far as I know you can not transit Canada with your old 1911.

  • [6] October 22, 2014 at 12:33pm

    agree but I did listen to the firs part of the first one and gave up. Nothing to see here. No really there is nothing to see.

  • [6] October 22, 2014 at 12:28pm
