Quote# 92223

You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children.

Suddenly, an Islamic terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock .40 caliber, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.

What do you do?

Republican/Conservative Answer:

BANG


Democrat/Liberal Answer:

Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question!

Does the man look poor or oppressed?

Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

Could we run away?

What does my wife think?

What about the kids?

Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?

What does the law say about this situation?

Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?

Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?

Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me?


Texan Answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Click... (Sounds of reloading)

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Click... “Damn! I’m out!”

Daughter: “Nice pattern, Daddy! Were those the Silver Tips, Black Talons, or hollow points?”

Son: “Can I shoot the next one, Daddy?”

Wife: “You ain’t takin’ THAT to no Taxidermist!”

Yeah, because Islamic terrorists are out to get us one family at a time.

You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children.

Suddenly you see a man with slightly dark skin walking down the road opposite you. What do you do?

Liberal answer: Carry on as usual.

Conservative answer: Shoot him dead because he's obviously an Islamic terrorist and then claim the protection of Stand your Ground laws.

Textbook strawman. Even the author undoubtedly knows that no democrat/liberal would actually do/think this if someone attacked their family.

Karate is much more effective, as it leaves a living attacker for the police to prosecute, the State Department to question, and you don't have to live with the knowledge that you have taken a life.

A liberal would shoot him in the legs/arms an attempt to disarm/down him, or in the torso if he's just too dangerous

A conservative would just headshot him, like he would do to any "problem" he encounters

Does that answer your question, Texas Ranger ?

Ok, translated into what this guy Really means:

You are sitting in your house watching tv and you become aware that people on the other side of the planet are upset with the USA.

Conservative/Republican answer:

Invade. Kill. Rinse. Repeat.

Liberal answer:

Diplomacy, talk, compromise, UN, mutual accommodation. Military action in the event all other options exhausted and a clear threat still exists.

Texan answer:

Mushroom cloud.

Republican/Conservative Answer:

Shoot first ask questions later, especially if it's a brown person.

Democrat/Liberal Answer:

Do whatever is necessary to defend family/self.

Texan Answer:

Much like the Republican/Conservative Answer but assumes all brown people are Islamic terrorists who have sneaked in through the U.S./ Mexico border.

Texans sure do love to waste ammo.

So, what happens when the Islamist has an AK-47?

And they wonder why Obama reinstated the assault rifle ban.

(Ignoring the obvious stupidity of the scenario...)

Congratulations. You've just crossed over the line of justifiable self-defense into 2nd degree murder if not reckless homicide.

Fortunately, the "Islamic terrorists" are kept in a separate cell block.

Suddenly, an Islamic terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you.

Yes, because that happens on a daily basis. I'm betting the number of times this has happened in the United States is somewhere around 0.

If you can't drop someone with one or two shots, then you shouldn't be shooting a gun. How many innocent bystanders were hit with that barrage of bullets? Spraying and praying is poor practice.

Of course, if someone is psycho enough to unload two magazines into someone's dead body, then maybe that shows that they shouldn't be carrying a gun in the first place and that we really do need sensible gun control laws.

Shoot him in the legs. I don't care if he's Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, atheist like me or anything else - he is presenting an immediate threat to me and my family, and my first priority is to incapacitate or otherwise render him incapable of harming us. I then make sure my family is safe, and I then contact the police and inform them of the incident and, if possible, give them a description of our assailant.

Despite what you may think, liberals do in indeed have the instinct of self-preservation. It's just that we don't let individual experiences and anecdotes such as this one automatically colour our whole view of certain demographics.

If a white Christian came running at YOU, screaming "praise the lord" or some such, would you suddenly believe that Christians are all bad people...? Why not?
Because that would be illogical.

You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. You are carrying a Glock .40 caliber, and you are an expert shot. Suddenly your son gets a hold of it and accidentally shoots your daughter.
What would have prevented the accident:
Liberal answer: You not carrying around a gun.
Conservative answer: More guns.

Substitute a Brownie Scout troop for your Islamic terrorist, and your description of the Republican and the Texans would be right on. Democrats aren't scared of Brownie Scouts.

Right, because everyone knows Islamic terrorists hide in alleys and attack random families instead of going for the big, newsworthy attacks.

That Texas attitude is probably the reason the murder rate is so high in Texas. If you get pissed off, shoot someone, preferably a brown or black person. That fixes everything.

I'm guessing DoctardDick doesn't understand that most people would defend themselves in that situation, regardless of political affiliation.

I see the communist Russian of olden now has been replaced by a trrrist Musim.

The original Cold-war version went like, what would you do if a Russian enters your garden and threatens your family. Shoot him, right? Therefore we need 48 extra cruise missiles each of which can kill 500,000 Russkies.

Well Doom, if this fantasy helps you live with the fact that if you were ever in such a situation you would drop your gun, burst out crying and beg the intruder to take your wife and daughter in exchange for your life, I say go for it.

This is what conservatives hallucinate on PCP.

Muslim quasi-terrorists on the no-fly list can still buy AK 47s because the NRA opposes the common sense notion of denying these supposed terrorists guns. Because they have second amendement rights.

Therefore your crazed muslim would have an AK 47, not a knife. He would laugh at your puny glock.

We've had 7/7 here in the UK (our equivalent of 9/11).

That was the best attempt by Al-Qaeda.

The only one, too. Thanks to Scotland Yard's Anti-Terrorist Section, MI6, and GCHQ.

We in the UK had 30 years of the IRA. Funded mainly from the US.

Then there was WWII: The Blitz; Hitler's Luftwaffe/V-1s/V-2s

We're still here.



In my locale, there's an armed Rapid Response Squad. Most British Transport Police (especially at London's train stations) are armed with H&K MP5s & Glock 17s. Those at all our airports recently upgraded their MP5s to Steyr AUGs.

That's the British answer.

Which is why I don't waste time with hypothetical questions, Duckturd Dumb.

I remember hearing this before in a chain email years ago. Only instead of an Islamic fundamentalist it was just a knife-wielding maniac. Doom, get your own material.

This is part RSTDT, part conservative gun addiction and part inflated sense of self due to being Texan.

Odd trifecta.

... I assumed WLD would have an anti-porn rule, but here's DrDoom sharing his personal, completely implausible right-wing masturbatory fantasy. Really, it's not that much different from a teenage girl writing a fanfic about meeting Edward Cullen and them having wild vampire sex and falling in love forever. And yet WLD would probably ban the Cullen fic within an hour, even though it would probably be better written and possibly more subtle and slightly more plausible.
