Skip to comments.Fighting Crime with a Vodka Bottle in Place of a Gun

It happens probably nightly. A citizen fights off a criminal in order to protect his property. But it doesn't always make the nightly news. In this case it did.
How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle? How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?
And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly news every night.
We can fight battlefield wars with very few casualties while inflicting massive casulties on the enemy, but we can't teach clerks and teachers to take down bad guys with a gun.
I don't know if liberals don't want to get it, or if they just don't realize that all this government benevolence by banning guns is eventually going to be turned on them one day.
Because while defending one's self from criminals is certainly one of the by-products of an armed citizenry, the 2nd Amendment was specifically designed to arm citizens to protect them from the government first and foremost.
"... being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Which is why Darrell Cabey successfully sued Bernhard Goetz in civil court for $43 million for 'pain and suffering' for being shot while attempting to hold up Goetz on a subway car.
Vodka bottles dont kill people, people kill people. It has a ring to it
Not true. goetz was sued because he shot him again after he was no threat
If all I had to defend myself was a vodka bottle, I believe I'd do my best to smash off the bottom and use the shards on the criminal's eyes: what the predator can't see, he'll be less likely to harm, and anyway, eye injuries often have a traumatic effect on the entire nervous system.
It’s all about the fear that’s been instilled in people by eliminating any pictures or discussions in schools about guns. Being indoctrinated from childhood has had an effect on the populace.
People always fear the unknown. We need mandatory classes on guns, beginning at the elementary level, just as we have mandatory sex education classes, to remove guns and other firearms from the unknown category.
“Ban glass vodka bottles!” Make them all plastic, like the bottom shelf stuff.
I’d rather have the use of my fingers than the dubious advantage of the bottle.
Throw it at his head and close with the swiftness.
Cabey won the lawsuit because he was paralyzed and his lawyers painted Goetz as a racist to the mostly African American civil trial jury.
Lindsay Lohan is covered, because she carries a vodka bottle in each hand.
Cabey won the lawsuit because he was paralyzed and his lawyers painted Goetz as a racist to the mostly African American civil trial jury. ............................................ A scenario soon to be replayed in Florida.
Surprised they didn’t just shoot him for the Vodka and take his loafers too...
“I don’t know if liberals don’t want to get it, or if they just don’t realize that all this government benevolence by banning guns is eventually going to be turned on them one day.”
The pendulum will swing back on the Left, and instead of the peaceful transition of power, it will not be so peaceful next time I fear. There will be reprisals, and no one will stand up for the useful idiots that enabled tyranny. I just hope that the media is taking notice.
“...and anyway, eye injuries often have a traumatic effect on the entire nervous system.”
OMG! You just reminded me of “the eyeball fight” in “Deadwood”. Ewwwwwwwwww!
