Network News anti self defense/anti second amendment segment? (vanity)

Posted on 07/21/2012 2:58:50 PM PDT by nerdwithagun

Last night, I watched a news segment of store owners, workers, and patrons fighting off armed criminals. The segment referred to it as "vigilantism", I and sane people call it self defense. They go on to interview a business owner who shot at and fought off some robbers, but then they go to some "expert" who describes fighting back as "suicide". They give two examples, a good man who tries to bludgeon a bad guy with a gun with a bottle but gets shot and a store worker who shoots at the robbers and gets fired for it. The former is still alive and the later is a good argument for the pro gun against stupid store policy.

I couldn't find any article here on FR on it and I don't even know what channel or news program this was. Anybody else see this travesty besides me?

TOPICS: Society
KEYWORDS: banglist; newsbias; selfdefense
I try to not post vanities, buts this is more looking for an article and commentary which I couldn't find.

Hey. At least give me the opportunity to defend myself. When the animals are rioting and pillaging I have the right to defend myself and NOT be a sheep to the wolves.

Remember the LA riots?

And NO the police are NOT capable of protecting me everywhere and all of the time.

After the coming revolution, all anti gun zealots are to be deported to North Korea, where all citizens are unarmed, and their utopia exists.

Though the word “vigilantism” has been despised, by confusing it with a lynch mob, the truth of the matter is that the public is *always* in a state of “vigilance”.

That is, it is the public that both decrees and enforces the law. LEOs are just a convenient way to do this, acting as paid agents for the public against the criminal element.

While there are not enough LEOs to prevent crime, except passively, they do perform the service of being dogged in their pursuit of those who have offended.

As such, for every adult person to enforce the law, they must have tools to do so.

The MSM and Rats are more motivated than after a typical killing to scream that self-defense is dangerous.

Four hundred people just sat there and got shot at.

It’s is bleedingly obvious to the entire universe that if even one person, let alone more than one, had a gun, this massacre could never have happened.

It’s sticking out like a sore thumb, and that’s why the liberals are scrambling to baffle it with their bullsh*t.

One gun. One person with a gun could have stopped it, or enabled more to escape harm. One PERCENT would have fried the bastard mere moments after he started shooting, if not before.

It’s so OBVIOUS!

Ya. They are idiots and if they had to live what the preached, they’d shut up.
