    I am basing my opinion on what I saw in the video. I was not there obviously. All I am saying is that had he fired his weapon, he would not be giving the hero’s interview on tv. He would be in custody. I applaud him for what he did in helping. I am saying the outcome could have been much worse. Introducing the gun to the situation could have escalated the situation unnecessarily. It is never wise to escalate an already violent situation. There are too many what ifs in this case. He got lucky. If they drew on him after he drew on them and he fired, he again would be at fault. My whole point is that there are too many ways this could have gone bad for the guy who drew his weapon first. I think his decision to draw, based on what I saw and read, was premature.

    The is not what I learned in my CC class. You are to do whatever you can to prevent or stop the crime and pulling the weapon is the last resort. Ask any attorney, had he fired, he was going to jail.

    If they felt they needed 7 to take down the old man, either they are a bunch of sissies or the old man is really a bad a$$. Either way .. do not draw on a fist fight of which you have no claim.

    I am a CC man myself, believe in the 2nd Amendment, and am as far right as anyone. Stopping the crime was a good choice and I commend him for it … BUT .. from a legal stand point, the man who drew was dancing on legal thin ice. Had he decided to shoot in this situation, he was going to go to jail. There were no weapons in the fight that he could see and his life was not in danger. From a hero perspective, he did the right thing, from a legal perspective, he almost landed in jail for potentially a long time.

    My thoughts from the interview were if they were to attack him he’d of shot. If they ignored him and continued to beat the man .. then what would he do ? Hmmm … approach and fire ? Were they armed ? Was the “victim” armed ?

    The man’s decision to draw his weapon was flat out wrong on so many levels. Had he fired his weapon in this situation, there is no doubt he was going to jail.
    What should he have done ?
    1) Approach the situation carefully and assess for weapons and danger / damage.
    2) Alert the assailants that the police have been called, to stop the violence, and announce that he is armed.
    3) If they continue to beat the man, he could put enter the fight knowing he can never pull the gun since he initiated his entry.
    4) If he enters the fight and ends up getting whipped, draws his gun and fires, he is going to jail for a long time.
    5) If he fires a warning shot, which is very stupid and illegal, he is going to jail.
    6) If the assailants had weapons drawn, fire away if you feel lucky.

    Bottom line, you are supposed to use your gun to protect you and your family’s lives. If you witness something like this guy did, make a big stink and help if you can but do not pull your weapon unless you intend to fire it. It is unfortunate, but the old man was going to get his butt whipped or even killed. That is unfortunate. You cannot going around doing the job of the police officers. Let them do their job or leave your gun in your car and join the fun fist fight.

    I work at one of the most liberal universities I know of .. I am infiltrating .. changing one simple mind at a time !!

  • [9] April 22, 2015 at 1:27pm

    All liberals smell.

  • [19] April 22, 2015 at 1:26pm

    I too have had to fend off the liberal brain washing. My kids did the same starting in about 4th grade. They came home stating how we were a bad country because of slavery and that muslims can be tolerant .. how guns are bad and nobody should have one. It is nuts. It is a long battle that must be fought. Stay tough and do not waver. Talk to your kids every day all the way through college and challenge the garbage they bring home.

    I have challenged all my liberal friends at one time or another to sit with me, beer summit style, and go over the facts of bills and foreign affairs and policies. They won’t do it because they know their liberal progressive agenda is based on lies and deceit. It is pure evil running through their veins. Fight the good fight and in the end, the good and righteous will win.

    @G.E.R :
    How wrong you are. I educate my kids on everything regarding public policy, foreign policy, the Constitution, current events, etc. We read together and watch the news together. The only difference between me and this brilliant young boy is that I told my kids to keep their mouths shut about politics in school… except he does make fun of the kids who have Obama voters for parents. There is no question that both my son and daughter could write this letter and then some. I am sorry you do not take the time to educate your children, or have you not been able to find a mate ? or maybe your parents did not educate you and you are a child yourself. Whichever it is, you are in a sad state. Pucker up for Hillary’s wrinkled behind.

    I sure would have and wouldn’t blame the officer if he unloaded his clip on him. Scumbag for sure.

    Religious Freedom is protected by the Constitution. Not Islam. Islam is not only a religion but a set of laws (sharia) that directly conflict with the Constitution. They can worship allah all they want but they cannot impose sharia in the United States.

    @getoff : My friend is a career US Army vet who was born in Iran, served under the Shaw’s Army and lived islam until he was 20. He defected, became a Christian, and joined the US Army. The story he tells from 1st hand experience is an incredible insight into the minds of muslims. All the “crazy” stories you hear about islam are true. He also states there is no such thing as a moderate muslim. They are bound by the quran. They are told to lie and kill the infidel in the name of allah. The reason they are not killing many here is because it is still illegal for them to do so. They are gaining ground and given the opportunity, they will kill all Christians, Jews, athiests, and anyone else who does not convert to islam. I tend to believe my friend and not someone who has never lived or experienced islam.

    I do not see a problem here. A few people fight, the winners walk away, the losers wake up a bit wiser.
    Everybody needs an a$$ whoopin every now and then.

  • [1] April 20, 2015 at 12:09pm

    Because Obama is a Muslim and owns the media. He supports islam and hates Christianity and America so all we hear is good muslim, bad Christian and bad America.

    Keep this in mind to all that read this .. the ONLY reason we (US Citizens) are not dead or in chains right now is the Second Amendment. If you take the second amendment away, you will see massive bloodshed.

  • [2] April 17, 2015 at 11:53am

    I agree. Judge all you want. It doesn’t mean anything. God is the final judge and opinions do not matter. My thoughts are, in general, do what you believe is right, don’t try to make other people accept or do what you believe from a legal stand point (l i btar ds .. that one is for you), and quit being a big D.

    I disagree. It makes you think which creates the miracles in the brain. Logic is not a given, it is learned. The way you learn is by challenging yourself. A good simple example. I was a math major in college. Worked a summer job in a lumber yard. The carpenter was asking this grade school educated person to put a block of wood under the steps to secure the step. He spent an hour trying to figure it out. Not knowing what was going on, I walked up the the gathering by the step and took the block from the boy’s hand and placed it through the opening behind the step which he could not seem to see. It is all about being able to visualize the problem in terms you can understand.

  • [1] April 14, 2015 at 7:59am

    You are incorrect. It can be deduced logically as the article explains and jluther explains in a similar approach. You have to be able to separate terms (Al and Bern) and visualize the process
    from their perspectives. Not saying it is easy and trained math magicians will have trouble with it, but it can be solved as explained.

    Blinkknight .. what do you have against dogs .. you racist.

  • [1] March 18, 2015 at 10:17am

    blink knight .. the gay population is less than 1%, not main stream. The only reason it is a blip on the radar is because the Main Stream Media loves the drama and the squeaky wheel gets the grease. It doesn’t have the numbers to make a big impact on society as a whole. It does however have a big impact on the children that get involved, their perception of the “norm” which may lead to psychological issues from bullying from other children because their parents are queer, from not understanding why they do not feel like h u mping someone of the same sex. It also leads to the development of low moral establishments like the PCUSA where they now promote the h u m ping of two males or two females which most find odd. If we can have another of the same sex, why not a goat or a horse ? Where does it stop. It is behavior like this that is decaying this once great nation. This is the slippery slope. Most don’t care if someone is gay or not. Just don’t shove your junk down our throats, metaphorically.

    LibertarianSocialist … the name itself defines who this person is … Pro-drug, pro-gay, anti-religion, pro-big government. Exactly the type of person who put Obama in office. A real smart guy. /sarc
