Well, that is what we are told is supposed to happen, but reality was the other way around.
Unfriended! Democrat drives to man’s house and shoots him after heated political disagreement on Facebook
Brian Sebring, 44, of Tampa, Florida, was arrested for shooting Alex Stephens, 46, also of Tampa, in the thigh and buttocks after their online disagreement
Police say the row was sparked by a political disagreement on Facebook
Stephens reportedly began sending Sebring ‘explicit messages and threats’
Sebring then armed himself with an AR-15 and Glock, drove round to Stephens’ house just two miles away from his own home, and opened fire
He fled the scene but later turned himself in and was arrested on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed firearm
But wait, it gets so much better:
Sebring is a registered Democrat who follows Barack Obama on Twitter.
Sebring was booked into the Hillsborough County jail, his bail set at $9,500.
Facebook political argument ends with Tampa man shot in buttocks
How many hard-core Democrats are packing AR 15s in secrecy? We know candidates who destroyed theirs and now we have one Obama fan engaging in Agg Batt with a Deadly Weapon. Isn’t this kind of hypocritical on their part?
Who wants to bet Sebring will claim Stand Your Ground?

Ban Fakebook! !1!
You’ve got the headline backwards I think.
Duh, never mind. Tired, reading comprehension skills not all that sharp.
Time for moar coffee! 🙂
The first thing I thought scanning the headline was “A Republican, an AR-15, a Glock, and a Democrat go into a bar…” Yeah my mind is permanently warped.
OK — Serious question here: Why is this not attempted murder? How in Heaven’s name can this be called aggravated battery? Sheesh!
OK, so I just read the piece in the Tampa Times, and (apparently) the victim charged the man outside his house —- but, he apparently was running away when shot. In the butt. By the Glock, not the AR-15.
On another note, this happened in Palma Ceia. Sheesh! I used to live there!
