Use Your Gun Save Your Life

An overnight clerk at a store in Columbia South Carolina warded off three (3) armed robbers by pulling out her gun and returning fire after the robbers began shooting in her store. The clerk says she was in fear for her life after the 3 armed thugs began shooting in the air in her store. The 3 armed robbers had demanded cash and lottery tickets. The clerk hit one of the robbers in the upper body and is believed to have hit another. The third robber got away. Remember if you need help in seconds, the police are just minutes away.

  1. Meanwhile, a Florida “gun collector” and software engineer opened fire on a car full of black teenagers at a gas station after he confronted the teens for playing their music too loud. He “thought he saw a gun” so he fired seven or eight times, killing a 17-year-old in the back seat. The teens apparently had no gun.

    Remember, when you’re white in Florida, you can make assumptions first and shoot seconds later, then claim you felt “threatened.” Warning: Don’t try this if you’re black.

  2. Bob Costas’ smarmy, misplaced rant aside. I think Jovan Belcher is a prime case for why a handgun does little more than give you the opportunity to double down on a moment of stupidity/irrationality.

    I do think they should still be legal, but they need to tighten the screws on people purchasing firearms.

    And really, the notion that citizens having guns is going to keep the government honest is hilarious. Does anybody really think that if the Government wanted to they couldn’t bulldoze resistance from a rag tag “militia” if you even want to call it that.

  3. I’m more worried about the escalating use of firearms by assailants during home invasions happening right here in Sussex county. If someone breaks into my house displaying a gun, I will shoot to kill. As for the rag tag “militia” seems I recall a similar rag tag “militia” defeated the British.

  4. Actually, the “rag tag militia” did not defeat the British. At the beginning of the revolution the term “rag tag” certainly could apply. However an estimated 250,000 men served as regulars or as militiamen for the Revolutionary cause in the eight years of the war, with 90,000 men under arms at one time. A regular army was established on June 14, 1775 by the Continental Congress.

    Our regular armed forces today would have absolutely no problem with a rag tag militia. It is far better to depend on the ingrained principles of our armed forces to support and defend the Constitution than to imagine that somehow a militia would stand a chance against even a small force such as a Seal Team Six.

  5. It is far better to depend on the ingrained principles of our armed forces to support and defend the Constitution than to imagine that somehow a militia would stand a chance against even a small force such as a Seal Team Six.

    Probably better to depend on transparency brought about by Anonymous and Wikileaks behind the backs of corrupt main stream journalists who can’t do their jobs at this point, at least to some extent… even if Anonymous is full of pranksters. After all, even the Seals* or CIA agents in Benghazi don’t necessarily stand a chance if “perceptions are reality” for the illiterate masses within the main stream media of near total B$ typical to trendy journalists. Still waiting on more generals to be accused of everything that moral degenerates in D.C. are already usually engaged in anyway… couldn’t they all be framed as “threats to national security” too? They may as well be the Roman Senate. So we may see how it goes if generals begin trying to defend the Constitution. After all, it seems that the Plebs may continue to refuse to take an interest in ruling themselves and constituting their government. Explanations for the decline or destruction of institutions as civilization declines may vary… was it due to corruption and assassinations in another Praetorian Guard, of sorts? Or was it an expansion of the global financial empire too fast? Or was it too much copper in the coin by its bankers? Were there really too many famines or natural disasters? What “explanation” for the inevitable decline will be offered in the future if people refuse to seek to rule and govern themselves so that they can truly love others?

    *Random note:

    President Barack Obama said Saturday that the deaths of Americans in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan are a reminder of the “extraordinary” price the U.S. military is paying in the decade-long Afghan war.
    Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite unit as the Navy SEALs who killed former Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden, U.S. officials said Saturday.
    FoxNews

    Another extraordinary price for yet more hopium and change or was it all about Osama? Maybe the crackheads running Bushbama Inc. should coin a new currency to represent their ideas about “perceptions as reality,” they could call it the Pat Tillman.

    The price of Obama’s presidency on a more personal level: about 1.4 billion

    The cost of having an entertainer and chief in a world where perceptions are reality? Priceless!

    Taxpayers spent $1.4 billion dollars on everything from staffing, housing, flying and entertaining President Obama and his family last year, according to the author of a new book on taxpayer-funded presidential perks.
    In comparison, British taxpayers spent just $57.8 million on the royal family.
    Author Robert Keith Gray writes in “Presidential Perks Gone Royal” that Obama isn’t the only president to have taken advantage of the expensive trappings of his office. But the amount of money spent on the first family, he argues, has risen tremendously under the Obama administration…
    Gray told The Daily Caller that the $1.4 billion spent on the Obama family last year is the “total cost of the presidency,” factoring the cost of the “biggest staff in history at the highest wages ever,”….
    Daily Caller

  6. Such things that are included in the $1.4B is Camp David, a military installation and the permanent Navy and Marine staff, who are always there, regardless of whether the President is there are not. The devil is in the details of course, which almost no one will pay attention to, because the objective is not enlightenment.

    Reminds me of the poll that shows a majority of conservatives believe that ACORN had a large role to play in the last election in getting Obama re-elected. That ACORN was no longer in existence had was irrelevant.

  7. I guess everything will be fine as long as the almighty dollar holds and unifies a “multicult” of people that do not seem to be unified by anything else.

    So in other words, everything will be fine… until that day when it isn’t. It’s hard to see given how long something like a “drug high” can last. If only people could stay high forever? It does seem to work for a while, especially when the whole world joins in. Yet once people begin seeking physical stimulation in materialism instead of governing themselves (Even if it’s only to build a sense of the sensuous in their minds to take pleasure in consuming again.) it seems like the cycle to it gets faster and faster.

    I blame banksters and the metaphoric birds of prey circling above them, yet they’re probably only representing trends among lemmings based on what every lemming wants to do anyway. So apparently Obama Inc. needs to see to it that JP Morgan sees to it that “the base” get their food stamps, that their birth control is covered and so on. Interesting though, that the owners of their media/money matrix need to keep them entertained with the idea that they are ruling themselves, that they are engaged in a noble fight against evil forces (war on women) or that they own their home and so forth. At least the use of these illusions show, in a backward way, that some lemmings are more than lemmings. After all, do real lemmings need to believe that they are engaged in a noble fight to protect each other against birds of prey in order to be tricked into running out into an open field underneath the all seeing eyes of eagles?

    Forward. (And save that bird while you’re at it.)

  8. Such things that are included in the $1.4B is Camp David, a military installation….

    And why is it that we need a global empire, again?

    That ACORN was no longer in existence had was irrelevant.

    I’m sure that “it” had a role to play, whatever the names Leftist lemmings are going by these days.

  9. Apparently the best way to scare a Rightist lemming: terrists

    The best way to scare a Leftist lemming: vulture “capitalists”

    But what if they’re both being eaten by an even bigger symbolic bird of prey? Anyway… if it’s time for Obama’s “revenge,” then why isn’t he moving to take it out on the banksters? After all, they did shift their money to Romney Inc. in general and it seemed like there may have been a subtext to Obama’s ideas about “revenge.” Something along the lines of an eagle eating a vulture, etc. There again, it seems like higher level predators can get away with anything and are not fighting with or checking and balancing each other much before eating these days. After all, they have yet to run out of lemmings to eat and it’s the easy prey that disappears first. (It’s just a metaphor, so don’t take it literally. After all… the modern mind thinks that it may as well be meaningless if it’s metaphoric.)

  10. “As for the rag tag “militia” seems I recall a similar rag tag “militia” defeated the British.”

    The situations are not even close to comparable. For one, military arms at that point were not all that discernably different than civilian ones. Lastly, the training required to operate in a combined arms environment far outpaces what was required of troops back then. It would be very difficult for your average 300 pound honey boo boo watching American to keep pace with the operational tempo a decent American unit could sustain.

    Luckily ethics based training is at the center of most military rites of passage, so it really isn’t an issue for us the way it is in a lot of countries. Although some of our Generals could certainly use a refresher on ethics, and I would say that probably extends down to a lot of our field grade officers as well.

  11. “And why is it that we need a global empire, again?”

    In what way does a Maryland facility translate to a global empire?

  12. Because the main reason all the rather expensive trappings and convoys typical to an emperor need to exist only occurs when he’s sitting on top of more and more of a global empire.

    For instance, one can only imagine a local mayor with this: “A Yukon XLs… follows the presidential limo. Specifically, the Dillon M134D Gatling Gun, a six barreled, electrically driven machine gun capable of firing 4,000 rounds per minute.” Etc.

    Maybe many Americans actually take great pride in their empire, it’s just that then they don’t want to be the people to pay for it. Yet someone, somewhere along the line did pay for it all even if machines are being used to produce more and more wealth or to mine more and more resources for more bullets in the electric machine guns, etc.

    Maybe Obama Inc. should look into making the electric machine guns solar powered?

    Not to mention the carbon footprint of the motorcade and Air Force One… although apparently they might replace Air Force One with this:

    The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 210 to 290 passengers. Boeing states that it is the company’s most fuel-efficient airliner and the world’s first major airliner to use composite materials for most of its construction. According to Boeing, the 787 consumes 20% less fuel than the similarly-sized 767. –Wikipedia

    Unit cost : US$206.8 million

    Although it’ll be way more if the movements of the central banks are any measure and the wealth of the world is no longer denominated in dollars in the future. I.e. it may cost trillions for the plane itself… but 20% less fuel? Priceless.

    Memo to Obama: “You didn’t pay for that.”

    Shrug… if only the Dreamliner could be engineered to run on hopium and dreams, that might be fitting in the end.

  13. Now I’ll ask you to actually answer the question instead of spouting off anecdotal nonsense. I’m not holding my breath for a coherent reply.

  14. Luckily ethics based training is at the center of most military rites of passage….

    Uh huh. Too bad the same can’t be said for the civilians giving them orders, though. Probably too busy with their sex toys or “Sex Week” at Yale or maybe “doing a little blow” like Bushbama.

    The situations are not even close to comparable.

    But you could also move the comparison up in time to resistance to Nazi Germany Inc. E.g.

    In August 1943, an uprising took place at the Treblinka extermination camp. The participants obtained guns and grenades after two young men used forged keys and snuck into the weapons store. The weapons were then distributed around the camp in garbage bins. …. The prisoners then attacked the Nazi guards with guns and grenades. …. Gassing operations at the camp were interrupted for a month. –Wikipedia

    Etc. But these are just techniques, similar to the technology of the human body itself. The hand itself is one of the more sophisticated parts, if you can handle that idea. Maybe even the brain and the mind are like tools too… so the only question remaining, is what is consciousness? It’s likely that if people had a different form of consciousness, then they wouldn’t think of and find techniques to kill each other.

    And that’s the extent of it.

    Electing crackheads that have used a technique to change their brains and distort their consciousness if not their intelligence too… that’s smart. What’s the military’s policy on that, again? Don’t ask, don’t tell?

    This will end well.

  15. First known as Hi-Catoctin, Camp David was originally built as a camp for federal government agents and their families, by the WPA, starting in 1935, opening in 1938. In 1942, it was converted to a presidential retreat by Franklin D. Roosevelt… –Wikipedia

    Roosevelt.

    Figures.

    The idea that the cost of Camp David is a significant aspect of the $1.4 billion which is estimated as the cost of maintaining the emperor these days is itself “anecdotal.”

  16. “But you could also move the comparison up in time to resistance to Nazi Germany Inc”

    Which of course did very little… Thanks for playing.

  17. Depends on your perspective, we all die in the end… although some want to do more than survive for a little longer than others first.

    If you’re a happy lemming then go ahead and leave your life and all the trends that guide it to the experts that tend to give you “official reports” and objective “data.” After all, the higher and closer to the birds of prey closer to the top of the food chain the experts are then the more likely they are to care, quite deeply and tenderly for you.

    On another note, if guns are so ineffective as a technique to undermine or limit central forms of government then why have the experts so often decided to arm and give terrists around the world…. guns? Some techniques are effective and that’s why people keep using them.

    On the other hand.. what’s next, is one to imagine that making sure that no one but experts have or are trading in literal “arms” will keep everyone else safe? Let’s face it, armless people could probably still find a way to chew each other to death or make life feel like it isn’t worth living for others. It’s not totally a matter of techniques. And technologies themselves are often merely reflections of a spiritual “cult”ure in the minds and ultimately the consciousness of men and women.

    Therefore, everyone should be able to have a solar powered “electrically driven machine gun capable of firing 4,000 rounds per minute” and be able to hire experts in techniques to protect them.

    Just kidding.

    Although it would probably be worth focusing more on exactly what the consciousness is of the crackheads who have begun sitting closer to the top of a government by technique and for technology and scientism. What’s the military’s or the Secret Service’s policies on rites of that sort, again? Is it don’t ask, don’t tell yet? Give it time.

    Remember: Luckily ethics based training is at the center of most military rites of passage…

    Lol…. so what’s their gay ethic now? It seems to be that your own desires define a different morality for you just like sexual desires define different moralities for different groups of people.

    This will end well.

  18. Give it time. And maybe a few more Colombian prostitutes too… and if current trends among lemmings continue then we may see what type of Praetorian Guard the American Empire may have within our lifespans. It’s never good to support assassination without trial for anyone, let alone American citizens. Just saying.

    I doubt the trends will flow quickly though, even as quickly as things seem to be moving towards the pop “cult” or gay ethic of “definition by desires” among ignorant and stupid lemmings there is still a lot of moral capital, old ideas about virtue and old institutions built up in America.

  19. American arms dealers:

    The shipment was part of a $300 million contract that Packouz and his partner, Efraim Diveroli, had won from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan. It was May 2007, and the war was going badly. After six years of fighting, Al Qaeda remained a menace, the Taliban were resurgent, and NATO casualties were rising sharply. For the Bush administration, the ammunition was part of a desperate, last-ditch push to turn the war around before the U.S. presidential election the following year. To Packouz and Diveroli, the shipment was part of a major arms deal that promised to make them seriously rich. The Stoner Arms Dealers: How Two American Kids Became Big-Time Weapons Traders

    Hey, what happened to gun control? Did the experts lose their capacity to “control” the guns way better than individuals do somewhere back there in the Fast and the Furious operation?

    And if they didn’t make any difference in fighting governments, then why did we spend so much to give them to Afghanis?

  20. Note the cycle:

    Yes, we’re the world’s foremost “merchants of death,” the title of a best-selling exposé of the international arms trade published to acclaim in the U.S. in 1934. Back then, most Americans saw themselves as war-avoiders rather than as war-profiteers. The evil war-profiteers were mainly European arms makers like Germany’s Krupp, France’s Schneider or Britain’s Vickers.
    We are uneasy no more. Today we take great pride (or at least have no shame) in being by far the world’s number one arms-exporting nation. A few statistics bear this out. ….
    Rarely debated in Congress or in U.S. media outlets is the wisdom or morality of these arms deals. During the quiet last days of December 2011, in separate announcements whose timing could not have been accidental, the Obama Administration expressed its intent to sell nearly $11 billion in arms to Iraq, including Abrams tanks and F-16 fighter-bombers, and nearly $30 billion in F-15 fighter jets to Saudi Arabia, part of a larger, $60 billion arms package for the Saudis. Few in Congress oppose such arms deals since defense contractors provide jobs in their districts — and ready donations to Congressional campaigns.
    Let’s pause to consider what such a weapons deal implies for Iraq. Firstly, Iraq only “needs” advanced tanks and fighter jets because we destroyed their previous generation of the same…. America, arms-dealer to the world

    If fiscal and social trends of this sort continue then the body politic is going to kill itself eventually. And it matters little if it chooses to use its right or left hand to do so.

  21. Interesting point:

    It looked like any other government form on fbo.gov, with blank spaces for names and telephone numbers and hundreds of squares to be filled in. But the document actually represented a semi-covert operation by the Bush administration to prop up the Afghan National Army. Rather than face a public debate over the war in Afghanistan, which was going very badly indeed, the Pentagon issued what is known as a “pseudo case” — a solicitation that permitted it to allocate defense funds without the approval of Congress. The pseudo case wasn’t secret, precisely, but the only place it was publicized was on fbo.gov. No press release was issued, and there was no public debate. The money was only available for two years, so it had to be spent quickly. And unlike most federal contracts, there was no dollar limit posted; companies vying for the deal could bid whatever they wanted.
    Based on the numbers, it looked like it was going to be a lot of money. The Army wanted to buy a dizzying array of weapons — ammunition for AK-47 assault rifles and SVD Dragunov sniper rifles, GP 30 grenades, 82 mm Russian mortars, S-KO aviation rockets. The quantities were enormous — enough ammo to literally create an army — and the entire contract would go to a single bidder.
    The Stoner Arms Dealers: How Two American Kids Became Big-Time Weapons Traders

    The federal government really keeps good control over its guns, doesn’t it?

    More gun control! And more psychotic crackheads too…

    Note:

    “When he was trying to get a deal, he was totally convincing. But if he was about to lose a deal, his voice would start shaking. He would say that he was running a very small business, even though he had millions in the bank. He said that if the deal fell through he was going to be ruined. He was going to lose his house. His wife and kids were going to go hungry. He would literally cry. I didn’t know if it was psychosis or acting, but he absolutely believed what he was saying.”

    Presidents seeking unlimited power to “win the game” do the same thing, still waiting on Obama to cry for real though. He’s probably not going to give up on his “fiscal cliff” theatrics this time because “winning the game” against the Republicans is more important than whatever happens to the rest of us in reality. In any event, all these crackheads would be better off playing empire building games in a simulation. That way they could “win” or entertain themselves with various vain ideas about themselves but maybe fewer kids and less “infantry” would get shot in reality as a result, etc.

  22. How small parts of the $1.4 billion estimate for establishing and maintaining an emperor for an empire is divided up among the provinces is only an important or “significant” question in your mind.

    Ironically, maybe one could look at the ultimate “price” of the nature of the full picture as “division” into its parts in the body politic. So you may yet get to see more details (apocalypse = uncovering) as to exactly which provinces are paying for the maintenance of the emperor and so on. It seems to depend on how long things can be “redistributed” or papered over around the world by global banks. But it’s looking like things may happen within in our lifespans. After all, the boom/bust, greed/debt, fear/death cycles currently being used and redistributed to various provinces to paper it all over with global paper ponzi seem to be moving faster and faster. One might say that they’re moving right off the charts, all around the world, and that the weak provinces that failed to rule/measure themselves may be hit by the instability of this “uncharted territory” first.

    But enjoy your favorite emperor for now and all your entertainment, as America sits at the top of the heap. Yet what if more provinces fail or refuse to make their payments of tribute to the globalists while the American empire has generally been incorporated into and sits at the top of a global system based on “balances” of paper ponzi? And how will the Praetorian Guard afford the best weapons and militaristic theatrics about technical expertise for the emperor if the American empire loses its ability to paper things over?

    These are more significant questions than the “budget” for Camp David or even any part of the cost of maintaining an emperor. After all, since when have Americans needed some sort of a detailed budget passed by Congress and so on anyway?

    Apocalypse = uncovering… and that may been the only way to know the price of things if people generally begin to fail to constitute their government based on ruling/measuring themselves. Lemmings seeking liberty these days have things easy, we can just read the Constitution, Google for information and ride the edge of technological forces of decentralization that naturally balance central forces of wealth and ultimately the emperor. No other uncovering/apocalypse necessary… or UFOs around nuclear sites either, I’d imagine. It’s probably all just imaginary, except when it isn’t.

    Shrug… even if forces and techniques to produce liberty instead of debt/slavery are at our finger tips that doesn’t mean that we’ll actually take advantage of them and begin ruling/measuring for ourselves.
