The other question is, there's nothing between no force and deadly force?

This is what I was referring to with the use of force continuum; by bringing and brandishing a weapon in public, it causes others to see you as a threat, and feel like they need to defend themselves, so they pull their gun, and now you have an argument for self defense. The more lethal weaponry you are armed with, the more it escalates the tension and the more lethal response others feel justified in using. If you are unarmed, it's very hard for somebody to justify shooting you in self defense. But if you're armed, you are clearly capable of killing them with ease and so they have justification to use deadly force in self defense. It's all about threat levels, and when you bring an AR-15 into a tense situation, you ramp up the potential threat and cause others to act accordingly. Everyone is now more on-edge and in fear for their lives because of the potential threat that your weapon represents.

So, it's completely normal practice?

You're not old enough to vote or drink, but carrying a rifle openly in public is no big deal?

Fascinating...



I also must've missed the part where you explain to me how there seems to be nothing between no force and lethal force.



Kenosha was a war zone.


Sorry, missed this earlier.

So basically you're admitting the guy went into a risky situation, then used the self defense reason for his actions.


That's just slightly odd.

It was legal due to a poorly worded law. The gun was apparently bought by his friend who lives there, he drove there to get the gun. Even if he had transported it across state lines it might still have been legal. It depends on if it's registered in both states Illinois and Wisconsin.

I get that the gun laws give people the right to carry guns. But to me it's one thing to have one in your home to protect your castle, your safe haven, and something else to walk around with a rifle ready for combat.

New rift opens between U.S. House Republicans over bigotry claims

https://www.reuters.com/world/us/new-rift-opens-between-us-house-republicans-over-bigotry-claims-2021-11-30/

"Mace you can back up off of @laurenboebert or just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad. Your [sic] out of your league"

Incredible that these are the kind of people republicans elect to lead the country. This sounds like something a middle schooler would say.

Parents of teen suspect in Michigan school shooting charged with involuntary manslaughter

https://www.yahoo.com/news/michigan-oxford-school-shooting-ethan-crumbley-parents-charged-182447458.html

"Jennifer Crumbley exchanged text messages with her son about the reported incident, including one that read: "LOL I'm not mad at you, you have to learn not to get caught." "

Once again, we learn that certain people care more about their guns than protecting families and children. Make no mistake that gun rights are fundamentally incompatible with family values.

No surprise both parents have been exposed as Trump supporters and the father bought the gun for this child just days before. This is what happens when you promote such fundamentalist views of gun ownership; people think even children should have guns. This is why the FBI identified far-right extremism as the biggest terror threat in the nation. Make no mistake, this is what right wing terrorism looks like.

They need to throw the book at these parents, zero tolerance.

Personal freedom versus making a sacrifice for the sake of freedoms for a bigger group.

Looking at this whole thing, it's ironic in a way that the same people who use the freedom reason for not doing something, are then ok when someone else'e freedoms are limited. Basically, the only thing that matters is your freedoms.

Don't wanna wear a mask? Your freedom. Want to carry a gun? Your freedom. A woman wants to decide that to do with her body? Can't have that! Voting rights? Can't have that!

Ex-KKK Leader Running as Republican for Office in Georgia

"He is a supporter of Republican former President Donald Trump and, like Trump, opposes Black Lives Matter (BLM) and the alleged teaching of critical race theory (CRT) in schools."

Funny coincidence how outright white supremacists have the exact same ideology as the GOP... coincidence, surely.

"He added that one of the reasons he's running for office is because if the U.S. falls under martial law after an attack on the federal government, "it's going to be your local sheriff and county commissioners that's going to mean something in your area.""

Nothing to worry about here... just letting slip their plan to incite civil war and seize power, predicated on the fact that local sheriffs are known sympathizers with their cause...

Gotta love when one actually tells you what the party is really about. Make you afraid and telling you who's to blame for it.

What's funny is that while he may be a true believer, he's a true believer in a party that exists only to pad corporate pockets. The entire ideology itself is one big grift.

2018 Republican Gubernatorial Candidate for Oklahoma Shoots Process Server

"Barnett admitted to Googling “Can you legally shoot a process server?” prior to the shooting and that, at one point, joked that that “the only good process server is a dead one” during his affidavit. Police also say Barnett has a long history of making threatening statements on social media, including bragging about his collection of 10 firearms and fantasizing about how he would commit a mass shooting at a local university."

https://www.queerty.com/guy-ran-first-gay-governor-oklahoma-says-cctv-shooting-man-fake-news-20190805

And the CCTV footage of the shooting: https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/rcurh8/process_server_gets_shot_after_attempting_to/

You can see the server was even walking away when he shot.
