dm2754 This was not a guy playing hero. This was a live man, trying not to be a dead man.

I'm not sure what you mean by gun nut vigilante. I think of a vigilante as someone who seeks out opportunities to dispense his own version of justice, not someone who finds himself in a situation like this one, through no fault of his own. I'm not sure how I would react to this situation if I was armed. I've only had a gun pulled on me once, I was unarmed, I have no training for situations like this, and I just looked at the guy until he changed his mind. It was weird, the police thought it was hilarious. He got 10 months, which isn't anywhere near enough prison time.

dm2754 Unfortunately, scumbags with guns are a fact of life in America. Defending yourself is hardly trying to be a superhero, it's an attempt to stay alive. A big problem is that this robber won't do the time he should, he should never see daylight until he's an old man. He'll be out doing this again in a few short years. I think there should be extensive training for anyone carrying a firearm, it looks like one guy shot his cousin by mistake.

holygod One thing I noticed about this story is that there are different versions of it, depending on the source. Witness accounts    that are left out in some articles show up in others, and I have yet to see a complete version of events. I don't know if more shootings were prevented, because you can't prove a negative; but it cannot be reasonably denied either.

holygod Who kept him subdued while Engle got his gun? Did anyone?
DerryNH wrote:
holygod And where was the shooters gun? Did he still have it?  Engle held the shooter at gunpoint when he came back with his gun. Samson was not immobilized, I saw a picture of Samson under arrest, he was walking. Was he prevented from shooting more people? I don't know, I don't think you know either. Saying "Bullshit" suggests you think you know the exact sequence of events and the state and capabilities of everyone concerned. You don't. You just like to disagree with 5cats.

nokrull If you looked at all, you would see that 5cats is right.

holygod Robert Engle went out to his car and retrieved a gun he was legally allowed to carry. This was conveniently left out of some of the coverage.

daegog It could be that they don't feel obligated to run through the list of unrelated  ideas they're also opposed to, every time they disagree with something. This issue is getting a lot more mention than Nazis did. How's this: I'm against the disrespect shown for our national anthem, and I hate Nazis. I also hate summer squash, traffic jams, and mosquitoes.

One of the strangest feelings I had working at heights was when I stepped from one overlapping staging plank to the one it rested on, without realizing it. My foot only went 1-1/2" down from where I expected it to, but it set in motion an adrenaline rush. Even after I realized I was on solid footing, a feeling of urgency went through me about 2 seconds later. Some guys call that the 2-inch heart attack.

daegog Yes, I believe NK would start a war, I believe they've already crossed the line. The U.S. would not be starting it, they would be finishing it.

daegog If provoking America in this way is not deranged, then nobody is. The man is a loony tune. I don't need to wait for a mushroom cloud over Japan or Hawaii to make that claim.

DerryNH wrote:
daegog A head of state threatening to use nuclear weapons on another country is as provocative as it needs to get. Would you prefer we wait until he actually uses them? Kim is the guy charging at you with a knife while you hold a loaded gun. Do you wait to be stabbed in order to confirm his evil intentions? Maybe the nut charging you with the knife doesn't really mean it, but if he does, you'll find out too late.

100% the bad guy? Where in the world did that come from? Have you been paying attention? 
DerryNH wrote:
  That fat-faced cabbage-patch lunatic has nuclear weapons. He has the delivery system for them. His weapons are improving in both destructive power and range. He's deranged enough to use them. This is not speculation, this is fact. He said he will turn America to ashes, we have to take him at his word. The baby-man in North Korea must be taken out, and soon. The U.S. doesn't need a contrived incident to excuse an attack, the incidents already exist. This is NOT bullying, the United States is not the aggressor here.

insaneai Then it's time to change the law. 19 is plenty old enough with proper training. And maybe with proper training they would have killed them both. I'm sure the robbing scumbags also had illegal firearms.

mrteatime You're really unable to comprehend the difference between that and the video? You should stay cowering in your "safe space" then.
DerryNH wrote:
mrteatime They pulled guns on innocent people and threatened go kill them. It wasn't about theft. How in the world can you possibly ignore that part of the incident? Did you forget that part, right after you watched the video? Why would you even attempt to redefine what happened? 
DerryNH wrote:
mrteatime of course it is. The scum won't be pulling guns on anyone else.

fancylad Yep. Somebody, at some point, looked under a bull and said "well, hey! those look yummy!"
