Don’t Shoot the Sheeple!

I’m generally not inclined to use the word “sheeple” to describe my fellow citizens, but the guy highlighted here… I can’t honestly find a better word to describe.

You think for a minute if you had to shoot a bad guy, that guys like this aren’t going to vote to send you up the river because you didn’t take a bullet first?  Or maybe he’ll go easy on us because we don’t wear “bulletproof” vests.  If I ever find myself in a situation I have to shoot my way out of, if I have hesitation, it will be because I’m worried about having twelve guys like this second guessing everything I do.

One of the primary reasons I think law enforcement ought to support an armed citizensry is because we’ve had to think about this kind of stuff.  We know what bullets and body armor can and can’t do.  And any of us who have done competitive shooting understand how much more difficult it is to shoot under stress than in relaxed conditions.  The fewer people that have any familiarity with this stuff, the less likely that jury is really going to be one composed of your peers. Hell, in Philly and other crime ridden cities, there’s a good chance your “peers” will be those of the guy you had to shoot.

    People complain now that we don’t have enough police. Make such idiocy official police and you’ll watch enrollment figures for said departments dry up like rain in the middle of the desert.

    Just when you think you’ve read or seen it all…

    Some people really should not reproduce. If he ends up passing away some day without leaving offspring behind the world will be better off.

    I suppose he also thinks people can’t be killed with knives…

    A bit OT, I suppose, but this reminds me of a scene in the latest Rambo, where right after saving everyone’s life (and taking a few in the process), the liberal candyazz turns to Rambo and says “You know I’m gonna have to report this” [para]. What a waste of otherwise useful oxygen!
    Not that I would try to make sense of such ramblings (linked) but he also complained that cops don’t make a “real wage.” Great! Which is it? Would he really expect an LEO who isn’t paid enough to step in front of a bullet for him? I hope he is not this delusional.

    Don’t they already have to take a sample hit from a Taser?
