Maybe ninny New Yorkers or Mizzou College students that will assume fetal position at the sound of an offending word, but as for the rest of the country, I can answer you easily:
Self Defense: So easy that even a child can do it.
LADSON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities have identified a would-be burglar who was fatally shot by a 13-year-old who was at home alone and used his mother’s gun.The Charleston County Coroner’s Office tells media outlets 31-year-old Lamar Brown of Summerville died Tuesday.Twenty-eight-year-old Ira Bennett of North Charleston was also arrested and charged with first degree burglary and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Dear Everytown: Trying to tell Americans that they cannot defend themselves, their families, their homes and therefore should not have guns, is a very big losing proposition. Specially right after the Paris Attacks.
Dear Bloomie: You are supposed to have some sort of PR geniuses in your payroll. Are you getting your money’s worth?

It’s worse. Watch the video. 20/20 sandbagged the experiment by letting the “gunman” know who was carrying and he was the first one shot every time.
I remember when that ABC segment came out. That obvious cheat was immediately mentioned and ABC never responded to it. Maybe Everytown hopes people have forgotten how to think critically.
As I said in another comment: Bloomberg and his crew knows events like these don’t help them in their quest and are trying to get out in front of the next big wave of CCW applications.
Even so, at least one of the “students” managed to get a hit on the “shooter” before being shot. And that’s with a professional marksmanship instructor targeting her.
No. Everytown is just projecting. They really are pathetic, and they know it.
Come to NY and I’ll introduce you to some of my combat-tested veteran “ninny” friends. Be careful who you paint with that broad brush, lest you lose some otherwise supportive fans.
He mentioned the ninny New Yorkers, not the combat tested veteran New Yorkers.
It is his right to take offense when none was issued… We live in that kind of times, you know?
What sucks is that there’s a lot of good people trapped behind enemy lines up there. Once out of New York City, you’d be surprised at the amount of 2A support you see. A lot of people have signs out that say “repeal the SAFE Act” and that sort of thing. Also, most county-level CLEOs have refused to enforce the more draconian gun control laws in NYS. And that pissant Cuomo can’t do a thing.
The reprimand was earned. I live in upstate NY, separate us from NYC and this is a “red” state with a whole lot of gun owners. And despite the progressive culture of lunacy that seems afoot in NYC, I still won’t condemn them as “ninnys” as there are people living there who own guns and “get it”. They’re just outnumbered. So when this guy refers to New Yorkers disparagingly, of course some of us will be offended.
Obviously Miguel wasn’t referring to those of you who own guns and “get it”. He was calling a spade a spade. If you can’t see that, then you are choosing to take offense.
There’s an interview of a guy who was at the Bataclan. It seems there was a 20′ lull in the killings when cops negotiated with the Tangos.
“Imagine how helpless I felt ? Had I had a gun, I would have shot them instead of waiting near a window to get killed.”
Not all hope is lost. But I don’t see CCW coming to Europe any time soon. At least not through the law. People my start arming themselves ignoring the law.
There’s some minor progress though: cops are now allowed and encouraged to carry their service handgun off-duty. The norm form most uniformed cops was to check their gun to the armory at then end of the shift.
“Average citizens are not prepared to handle a gun in case of an emergency.”
Average citizens don’t walk around armed. Average citizens wouldn’t think to try and stop a gunman. Average citizens would run away or die, kneeling and sobbing.
But even a dozen “average” citizens can stop a well-trained gunman if they all mob him. Most of them will die, but fewer than a dozen mindless, shambling zombies can take down a lone gunman.(though honestly, the main lesson from that video is that I don’t want Adam or Jamie on my zombie defense team. No attack chaining or shooting from the hip? Ameteur hour.)
That was terrible… Second lesson don’t use air powered toys to kill zombies. Use real guns, with varmint loads 🙂
I would have to agree:
First, the axe “killing” didn’t seem convincing to me. I couldn’t help but wonder if that count would have been less, if he had to actually “chop” zombies, and pull the axe out afterward.
Second, I also couldn’t help but wonder if good aiming would have resulted in more dead.
Having said that, these were zombies, walking slowly. How much does the dynamic change when it’s people rushing the attacker as fast as they could?
I’m trying to figure out who thinks an axe is appropriate in that situation? An axe? Seriously?
How about a chainsaw? How about a flamethrower? Those are weapons I would choose over an axe in that circumstance. Offered a choice of an axe vs a firearm to take against a mob (living or otherwise) and I’d take the firearm every time.
And, no, Adam and Jamie are definitely not watching my six.
One can only wonder what will happen to these idiots if an attack happens near them… We are approaching the number of combat vets we had at the end of ‘Nam, and they ARE buying guns, and they CAN and WILL use them… Period. So will us old farts…
Even if we were to read that Everytown article and take it seriously, they have defeated themselves right after the first paragraph – If we are to believe that’s it’s “unlikely” an armed civilian could stop an attack , we know for damn sure that it’s “impossible” for an unarmed civilian to do so. That Everytown is eager to replicate the results of the massacre of unarmed civilians shows what a deranged group they really are.
Remember, their assessments of gun handling comes from people who are either too lazy, stupid, or ideologically pure to even learn the basics of firearms. I bet only a tiny minority of these dunces have actually seen one in person and even fewer have held one. How in the hell would they know how well armed citizens with no other choice will do in such a situation?
Hint, they will rise to the task or die trying, but they will most certainly die if they are unarmed as you noted, Dave.
Meanwhile, in reality
Miguel, just for the record, Rob Astorino was the pro-2A candidate in the 2014 NY Gubernatorial Race and I’m in Suffolk County, NY. So, yeah, being called a “ninny” and grouped in the same sentence with the Mizzou crybabies was pretty offensive…..but, I’m still a fan.
So basically what you and cmod are saying is you identify with the term “ninny New Yorkers”?
