Life, Liberty, and the Firearms that protect them both

Simple rule to live by

with one comment

I was reading an article SayUncle linked to, and NYDailyNews put up this poll question with the article:

Was it necessary for the undercover officer to shoot the armed robber?

Here is the relevant part of the story:

As the two men stepped into the entrance, a 31-year-old man – pretending not to know the dealer – came down the stairs and aimed a loaded pistol at the officer in an attempt to rob him, cops said.

So to answer the poll question, here is the rule you need to know:

  1. Why is it if a person with a permit simply carries a firearm, they are out to kill everyone in public but if a criminal points a gun at someone, they don’t really mean to hurt anyone?

    If someone points a gun at me (or anyone else) I’m going to believe that (s)he means to use it. See, I’m a trusting sort that way. Say or do something threatening, I’m going to believe that a criminal will actually follow through.
