I am flypaper for freaks and morons

From the comment box:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "SHTF Ammo":

Scenarios where having a gun would be advantageous are rare to the point of being virtually non-existent. Most people who are threatened with deadly force are in a situation of their own choosing, in a place where reasonable persons rarely find themselves. No one is going to break into your house and try and rob you. Yeah, it happens but you're more likely to get hit by lightning. Keep your guns if they make you feel safer but better advice would be: don't hang out in places where people carry guns and don't deal or buy drugs. Follow that advice and you'll be fine.

OK first off, that post was for if the SHTF ($hit hits the fan).

Next, Just to make sure I understand, You said ,"Most people who are threatened with deadly force are in a situation of their own choosing". So by your reasoning, the THREE delivery persons held up THIS WEEK at Sherman Hills were at fault. Not the dirtbags that robbed them.

And the workers at the nail salon on Main Street, who were WORKING, are not "reasonable persons".

Oh and, "No one is going to break into your house and try and rob you.". Really?
Scammers posing as PPL workers
Woman claims she was robbed at gunpoint
Alleged burglar caught in act in W-B
And that is just one street here in Wilkes-Barre. In a THREE WEEK PERIOD.
Oh and read these,
I don't understand Sheeple
Man Thwarts Attack from Black Teen Mob

Let me explain reality to you. If a predator can't find prey where they are at, they go somewhere else. And that somewhere else may be where you are at.

It's time to take off your rose colored glasses. Some people, like me, believe it is better to have and not need than to need and not have when it comes to life and safety.

And when you get over your 'butthurt', realize that "don't hang out in places where people carry guns" means 'don't go anywhere where there may be people'. Reponsible conceiled carry people get permits to do so. Criminals DO NOT.

Don't go on an obviously pro-carry website with your anti beliefs and not expect a spanking. If you don't want to carry, then DON'T.

  1. Good One ! That comment reminds me of Chief Dessoye’s statement that it is only the bad guys killing the other bad guys… right before my relative Mary Leo was murdered.

  2. Great job!! Some people just need a Wake Up call!!!!

  3. It is largely "bad guys killing other bad guys" that make up the bulk of crime stats. And the risk involved delivering pizza to Sherman Hills is a pretty good example of why you shouldn't deliver pizza to Sherman Hills. Plenty of businesses across the country do exactly that. Try and get a Domino's pizza delivered in East L.A. or certain neighborhoods in New Orleans. I'm not anti-gun either. If it makes you feel better, carry a bazooka, but you're kidding yourself if you think you're going to be Batman. And stop watching local news. It's designed to frighten senior citizens, not to provide an accurate assessment of risks facing average citizens. And those risks are easily minimized by personal actions that don't involve upping your arsenal. Plenty of rational people reject both the NRA and anti-gun groups just like plenty of people think FOX News and MSNBC are equally full of shit.
