Post Gun Control...

Tragic day. Everyone was looking forward to the much anticipated release of The Dark Knight Rises. Then THIS shit happens! I usually keep my mouth shut about the topic of "Guns". But i'm just gonna VENT about it for a moment. Anyways, I'm waiting for somebody to say "only Stupid people with guns kill people". Hmmm? Implying that Smart people DO NOT know how to pick up a gun and use it to there advantage? Really? Smart or Dumb - if something is pre-meditated, you know EXACTLY what you are doing! If you plan to take a shit - you know your going to the bathroom! This guy KNEW he was going to kill, so he went to OPENING NIGHT of The Dark Knight Rises where he KNEW it was going to be a 100% PACKED THEATER - that sounds like a SMART guy to me? Right? Well anyways, One of the victims was a 3 month old baby!!! Bottom line is - Guns KILL! Period! I believe only the cops and the military should have access to guns (because of the wankers out there that do LEGALLY own them and SMART or DUMB - use them inappropriately) If you don't want to get shot at home, remember to lock your doors! Duh! In England we don't have guns because it's illegal to own one! (that might be something to do with.... THEY KILL!) I personally believe, that only complete pussy's that can't handle themselves in a FIST FIGHT... use guns! Any motherfucker without a brain cell between his ears can pull a trigger! Such a shame. Colorado - my thoughts are with you today...

I saw this. This guy is a fucking asshat. What goes through a mind like his is just awful. Why do this to people? I hope he rots or gets what's coming very soon.

Hey Mr. Tapass! Long time no talk to, my brotha!

Well, I have a little difference of opinion on the matter of guns, but I'll have to come back to it cuz I'm late to a doctor's appt. But I certainly respect yours, and feel where you're coming from, Mr. Tap. And God, wrap your loving arms around Colorado today and everyday.

Btw, knives kill people too . . .

I guess I am reminded of the time two years ago this month when two men entered my home, home-invasion style, kicking my front door in with no warning, and put a cold grey steel 44 in my face. I was in the living room, and upon hearing them enter walked toward the door. A huge black man (John Cena huge) with dreadlocks and a two-inch wide nose raised a gun to my face, and a tall, lanky white man walked over and sat down on the arm of my loveseat so that I was cornered. My 14-year old son was in his room playing his Playstation, and walked into the living room and this is what he saw. He sat quietly down at the other end of the loveseat behind the white man and didn't move.

The black man holding the gun to my face demanded I give him my pain pills. I remember being afraid for just a minute while I processed what was happening to me in my brain, and then I just got really angry. I screamed at him to get out of my house, told him he was NOT going to rob me, and that I would not be his victim. (I also yelled certain obscenetries that I won't repeat here, teehee.) Anyway, he just stood there, looking at me, so I repeated myself. He finally put the gun in the back of his pants, turned and went out my door, with the white guy following him, and they threw gravel getting out of my driveway.

I got extremely scared after it was all over, and I had a friend (a man) come over and stay with us that night and he brought his pit bull with him and chained him up outside to alert us if anyone showed back up. And ya know, I never once was afraid that gun was going to show back up. But I sure was afraid those EVIL MEN were going to show back up. With anything in their hands. A gun, a knife, a bomb, a brick . . . it didn't matter. If they wanted to kill me, they were gonna kill me.

It's been two years now, and I'm still not over it. I will never be over it. Trauma like that changes you. It changed my son too. He had to go into a 4-month residential treatment facility to learn to deal with his anger and feelings after the whole thing. I now own 2 guns. And I am grateful they are available to me to own to protect myself against crazy psycho loons who might kick in my door and try to kill me with ANYTHING. And I still have a fear of those guys coming back. If one, or both, of them walk thru my door right now, I will SHOOT TO KILL!!! NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!! I also have cameras inside and outside my house, and an alarm system.

I guess I feel like a gun is an inanimate object. It cannot get up and walk, load itself, and pull it's own trigger. But a very evil person can do that. And if an evil psychopath decides he (or she) wants to go on a twisted rampage and kill people, they are going to do it. With or without a gun.

And that's just my very humble little opinion.

Sorry you had to experience that, and I hope you feel safer with the weapons.
Still, what I learned from your story, was that you settld the situation without using a gun. That was awesome!
if these guys had guns or knives, or even just their strength, it sounds like they could've done the same thing.
They hoped the threat of death would be enough to persuade you.
I hope in the future, that fear will be enough for your attackers -if you ever face another horrible situation, and you won't have to kill anyone.
If you do, and it goes down like you said, fuck the scumbags, right?

Hey Halochild, sorry it took me a while to get back to you and sorry i haven't been in the forum lately - this is because my precious time lately has been divided between TWO things - - 1st) i am working on my OWN website which is taking WAAAAAAYYY longer than what i wanted to, to finish. But i'm a perfectionist and its gotta be 100% PERFECT before i release it! And 2nd) I am a BIG Doctor Who fan - if you know what that show is???

Anyways - I will try and be a bit more active here in the forums.

Now, in response to your post - first of all i am sorry that you went through something so traumatic. I can relate to the fear you had because i am originally from London and i have witnessed and been through ALL kinds of stuff. Even threatened with a gun. But i kicked the guy inthe balls REAL hard and he couldn't get up to chase me - sounds wild - but true story - he wanted my cell phone - he got..... a kick to the balls!!! Some people may say i was stupid? who knows? Anyways - i think Rob said it best - it was good that when this DID happen to you that you resolved the problem without any violence being dealt between either party.

Another thing that makes me laugh about people who say "the right to bare arms" yada yada yada is ...... lets say you DO actually shoot somebody that breaks into your home. Never mind what the "law" says - even though we are protecting our property, when/if you shoot somebody that enters your home and you kill them - you are guilty until proven innocent. So people who use guns may eliminate the initial threat - but THEN they face another threat - the strong arm of the law!!!

Me - i hate guns anyway - personally as i wrote above - i think guns are for pussies that can't hold there own in a fist fight. I can understand some people wanting them for protection - but i always fight people with WITS (my brain) - as far as home security - i just ALWAYS make sure my doors are locked at night - EVEN my bedroom door - because locking your bedroom door at night might be a last line of defense just in case you forget to lock your front door. And what weapons i DO have - are in my bedroom. And i fight honorably - with AXE deodorant (just kidding) i have other weapons - but NO guns ; )

My brain and technology are my weapons - and i'm not afraid to use my fists either - but i just can't do a gun. I hate them! I think they are such a disgraceful, un-honorable weapon. It's SO EASY to end a life by the squeeze of a trigger? But anyways - i have so much security on my house - not that i live in a bad neighborhood, but it's always good to have - chances are the cops would get to me before an intruder does ; )

Howdy Mr. Tapass! It's so good to hear from you again! You have always, always, been one of my favorites, and you know that, don't you? And it's because you like to have fun and joke around, but when it's time to get real, you get real, and I like that about you. And thank you for being real with me right now.

Man, I'm sorry you've had to go thru some shit too. Sucks, doesn't it? I totally agree with you and RVD. Doing it without the gun IS the best way. And I feel what you are saying about "outwitting". I guess that is what I did that day. Little 115 pound me against two huge guys with a gun . . . I don't know what I was thinking. I don't think I WAS thinking. Something just took over me. I don't know if it was my subconscious brain that saw something in the way they moved that said they weren't for real, or if it was Divine Intervention protecting me, or just mad maternal intinct driving me, but something rose up in me and said NOT TODAY!!!

And I hear ya with the other weapons. My favorite is a Louisville Slugger, teehee! And I'm really handy with it. (Read the thread "What Color Should I Get", LOL!) And NO FAIR with the Axe Deodorant . . .

Good luck with your website. I'd love to see it when you get it up and running. And I laughed until I cried at your jokes earlier.

Halo
