The news of the murder of American war-hero sniper Chris Kyle is a sad one, and I was positive nary a tear would be shed over at the Koshhole. These morons never disappoint, and “diarist” Lefty Coaster was all aboard the stupid train and picking up passengers along the way.
Not even a gun range had enough good guys with a gun to stop one bad guy with a gun
One thing is sure. If there’s not enough of Wayne LaPierre’s “good guys with a gun” at a shooting range where ALL of the good guys have a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun, then how will more guns conceivably make us any safer?
Where do you start with this idiocy? I guess in this moron’s fever dream this was the scenario: Hundreds of “Gun Nuts™” were lined up shooting paper targets and a guy walked in and started shooting randomly at the patronage and Chris Kyle was shot and killed while all of the “good ol’ boys” just stood there pissing themselves as the gunman took off unabated in Kyle’s truck.
No, moron. The details are vague. What is known is that Kyle and his friend were shot by a man suffering from PTSD. He then took off in Kyle’s truck. The two victims were found dead HOURS LATER. This didn’t happen in the presence of a firing line, you jerkface.
Now, to address your other idiocy. Suppose a maniac actually did go into a firing range and started firing? I would bet that most of the people there to shoot wouldn’t be immediately aware it was even happening, what with the OTHER SHOTS BEING FIRED OVER AND OVER ALL DAY LONG!!!! You idiot. But I highly doubt he would leave the range alive if he stood there firing at people as if they were Adam Lanza’s unarmed and helpless victims.
Comments from the Koshole Klan:
- If all the people carrying for protection understood the capabilities and limits of a firearm, there would be fewer people carrying for personal protection.
Not only did they not stop him killing (35+ / 0-) they also let him get away in the victim’s truck
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and many friends of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle tonight. Todd and I first met Chris in Pella, Iowa, when he helped out with security for the premiere of the film “The Undefeated.” And later we became friends with Chris when he was on “Stars Earn Stripes” with Todd. Chris was a wonderful man, a good friend, and a true American hero who loved our country and served honorably. He was loved and admired by so many, and he will never be forgotten.” – Sarah Palin
Here is one of my favorites!
- There was an assassination attempt. Long time ago — I forget who the target was & am too lazy to Wiki it. Gerald Ford, I think, and it was in San Francisco.
It came up in my journalism ethics class.
See, the ex-Marine who wrested the gun from the would-be assassin was gay. IIRC, the ex-Marine was not armed. But he saw this guy pull the gun and he brought him down.
Why my ethics class?
B/c the Marine wasn’t yet out, and someone outed him w/out his permission. The hero Marine was — gasp — gay!
So: gay Marines don’t need guns. REAL men don’t need guns to defuse gun violence.
Hear me, NRA?
Damn! If only Chris Kyle was gay!
And then you have these armchair big brains who have as much information on this story as most, which is little. But that doesn’t stop them from blathering. You know the type. You’re probably forced to be around them on Thanksgiving
The victims “…were shot while helping a soldier who is recovering from post traumatic stress syndrome at a gun range…”
Somehow you have to wonder why a PTSD sufferer is at a firing range to be helped. WTF!No kidding, huh? Fuckin’ PTSD (1+ / 0- and let’s put a gun in his hand to “help him”.
Doesn’t sound like this was sanctioned in any way by anyone who knows anything about the syndrome.
In The Annals of Therapy (0+ / 0-)
I would say taking a guy with PTSD to a gun range is probably foolhardy at best.
I suspect these guys were trying to do DYI therapy. They probably have no real knowledge of PTSD or the current treatments. PTSD is very tricky. Please don’t try DYI therapy unless you’re credentialed, trained and up on the latest research. What a shame.
Who said the shooter was at the range for “shooting therapy”? What Koshole did they pull this out of?
