Title: Oops....
Post by: Rastus on June 26, 2022, 08:43:41 AM
I figure an "Oops...." thread that highlights self-defense and crimes gone "bad" would be a good thread.

Here you go.  Two home invaders in Phoenix down...

There was one time a guy made an oops and tried to rob a gun store full of customers who were carrying. I think he was shot around 50-60 times. It was probably Texas. 8)

I had a copy of the news article and 6,000 other pictures and memes on my computer but they went bye-bye, along with over 1,000 movies, a bunch of books, magazines, music, and documents. >:(

I just hope good sense takes hold of the situation and that boys lawsuit is thrown out.  He put himself in that position...

There is that old case law, that is often ignored but had better not be, that states if you are harmed in the commission of a crime, you forfeit your right to seek damages.  She did nothing wrong in this case.  The dogs acted naturally.  Sorry dude.

If he was raped for more than an hour and a half non-stop by those dogs, why did he wait so long before calling the police? Was he having that much trouble deciding whether he was traumatized or not? After an hour and a half of doggy-style from dogs he finally decided he didn't like it and wanted to file a complaint? Or the dogs got tired and quit, and that's when he decided to call 911? Out of boredom, or what? Or maybe she called some friends and relatives and told him to expect visitors real soon. The banjo pickin' type you wouldn't want to take canoe trips with, if you get my drift.

No matter what was going through his mind he's lucky it wasn't a JHP at high velocity. As far as I'm concerned he shouldn't even be allowed to file a lawsuit for anything that happened to HIM on HER property during the attempted home invasion/robbery, and no telling how much worse his plans for her were. He should lick his wounds (metaphorically), go home butt-hurt (literally), and consider himself lucky to be alive and (mostly) unscathed.

I finally niticed the name of the site and feel embarrassed, but at least I caught it before I copied the page and sent it to my friends. :-[ World News Daily Report (WNDR) is a satirical fake news website but they sure had me going. :-[ I thought it was real until I saw the logo and name. They make the National Enquirer look more trustworthy than Walter Cronkite.

Aw heck. I soooo wanted it to be true. Do you mean we can't believe everything we read on the Internet?  :o

Yeah.  That one is not getting the airplay it deserves.  It does not fit "the narrative" of armed civilians. 

It's a shame 3 people died by the hands of the shooter.  But the man who stopped it deserves a commendation. 

Just think, if he had chosen to leave his carry at home he may be among dozens of dead.  A good lesson for us to always carry.

If this got the airplay it deserved and the punk idiot mother's boys had an idea someone was going to end them we'd have less of these events.

Some libs are calling for the Good Samaritan to be prosecuted for carrying in a gun free zone.

Yeah well, sour grapes, eh?

Gun Free Zones generally have a very light penalty...I hope they cannot find anyone to charge him.

Here in the Chicago area, it is getting a lot of coverage.  Our Gov. Pritzker is running around the nation hoping for a run at the presidency in 24, and Mayor Lightfoot, the spawn of a love affair between Don King and Beetlejuice, is in Europe bragging about how great Chicago is.  During both of these excursions they are crying for national gun bans, and then this and its media attention.

Need to check the concealed carry laws.   In some state, like Indiana and Georgia, you can be prosecuted for trespassing if you refuse a request to leave, otherwise being caught carrying in and of itself isn't a crime.   In other states if the property is posted in an approved manner and you're caught carrying that's a crime in and of itself.

Be careful out there. Check your state law resources.

That's right.  But, the penalty is usually very light.  In Oklahoma you can be prosecuted for trespassing if when an officer asks you to leave you do not leave.  It's a $75 fine....minor. 

In Texas they have the 30-06 law.  Class C misdemeanor of not more than $200 fine.  And it must be posted in both English and Spanish, conspicuously posted and in contrasting colors with block letters at least 1" high.  Most of the signs I see are 3/4" high...HI HI.
