    Oh come now. We should all become better victims: Disarm Yourselves!

  2. Phydeau says:

    #61 Smith, you just don’t get it. You’re more likely to be a victim if you have guns around the house.

    This ain’t the wild west. Hasn’t been for a long long time.

    #60 Here’s some quotes from that article.

    Gun-toting soccer mom found shot dead

    LEBANON, Pa. – A mother of three who became a voice of the gun-rights movement when she openly carried a loaded pistol to her daughter’s soccer game was fatally shot along with her husband, a parole officer and former prison guard, in an apparent murder-suicide at their home.

    They had a marital spat. And since there were guns there, it turned deadly. Nice touch: the kids were there and witnessed it, ran out of the house screaming “Daddy shot mommy!” So not only did they both die, they f*cked up their kids in the process.

    Now how was that again, about guns making you safer?

    This is just a variation on the “bait car” sting

    The police are waiting 24/7 in the house to the

    As a side note, house break ins are much
    higher per capita in England , where the
    bad guys know they aren’t going to get
    “ultra rapid lead poisoning”.

    That sign is childish.

    #60, canucklehead… that’s all too common a scenario…
    Good post.

    And robberies are far, far less per capita/1000 in Canada (.82) or Germany (.72) than the US (1.39) or the UK (1.57). If you’re going to play the stats game, it’s good to have a loaded gun.

  9. tudza says:

    Phydeau, I have done jury duty from time to time. The one case I was a part of that involved domestic violence had no guns. The husband hit his wife with a lamp and she stabbed him with a kitchen knife.

    Still, if this sign is real, it is in poor taste. You know what they say, a polite society is a polite society.

  10. deowll says:

    You don’t make people safer by removing guns. It just means that knives and clubs are back in fashion.

    Of course law biding citizens won’t have guns and criminals normally do.

    Heck if you want gun control laws try China. You should feel real safe there. Germany under Hitler and Russia under Stalin were paradise for gun control lovers.

    On the other hand Switzerland must be purgatory. The men are all in the military and the last I heard they have issue weapons in their homes.

    I call bullshit. Is a fake and a bad one at that. Is so obviously ‘shopped. Someone is just screwing with you all

  12. Rick Cain says:

    Neighbor does have a sword though, and took ninjitsu training.

    You are welcome to rob the house at any time, if you dare.

  13. Uncle Patso says:

    In spite of my pacifist leanings (don’t tell anyone), if that arrow pointed in my direction I think I’d feed that arrow and the rest of the sign to the asshole neighbor who posted it! (And his little dog, too!)

    That’s not impolite, it’s open hostility and raw aggression, just begging to be answered in kind…

  14. Leave Now says:

    Seems that guy is risking being shot by his unarmed neighbor for putting up that sign. The neighbor is clearly a peace and love kinda guy. He wouldn’t have put up that sign if his neighbor was a gang banger who spoke publicly saying he didn’t believe in guns and wanted them all banned and that he believes in knives and pit bulls for protection.

  15. Angus says:

    We really need to get rid of guns. It’s way too easy to resist the state and federal governments now.

  16. MikeN says:

    Chance of dying from a gun in America, about 1 death for every hundred thousand guns. Chance of dying from a swimming pool in America, about 1 death for every 11000 swimming pools.

  17. The Nose says:

    The sign is a great argument FOR gun control. Clearly guns need to be kept out of the hands of crazy SOBs that would put up signs like that.

    #71, On the other hand Switzerland must be purgatory. The men are all in the military and the last I heard they have issue weapons in their homes.

    Police statistics for the year 2006[13] records 34 killings or attempted killings involving firearms, compared to 69 cases involving bladed weapons and 16 cases of unarmed assault. Cases of assault resulting in bodily harm numbered 89 (firearms) and 526 (bladed weapons). This represents a decline of aggravated assaults involving firearms since the early 1990s. Some 300 deaths per year are due to legally held army ordinance weapons, the large majority of these being suicides. The majority of gun crimes involving domestic violence are perpetrated with army ordnance weapons, while the majority of gun crime outside the domestic sphere involves illegally held firearms.[14]

    Gun Control is not about safety. It is about maintaining the political status quo. Our founding fathers knew this. Most of America knows this.

  21. Mr. Fusion says:

    #79, Loser,

    Then please explain why America’s statistics are equal to third world and unstable regimes. Then explain why those countries, including Switzerland, with strong gun regulation are so much less and the people safer.

    • Jeff S says:

      It’s a cultural thing. Has nothing to do with guns. We could give those nations all of our weapons and their violent crime rate would go unchanged. It is because of liberal policies that smart citizens arm themselves for protection. Additionally, if you compare the number of robberies, muggings, and other violent crimes against law abiding citizens in a state that gives citizens the RIGHT to carry concealed weapons you will see their numbers are in the cellar when compared to severely restricted states.

    As a 21 year police vetran both uniform & detective I can tell you two things with certainity:
    1) 1911 beats 911 every time
    2) Criminals prefer unarmed victims

  23. Schleprock says:

    I personally don’t have a big problem with guns. I have a problem with the paranoids who have to tell everybody in the world how they have a gun and will shoot any shadow that appears at their door.
    If I’m secret service, the first person I’m gonna “drop” in a situation, is the “patriot?” who thought it was a good idea to bring a handgun to a presidential event. How’s the guy gonna’ defend himself? Fire into the crowd?
    You do have a right to defend yourself. No doubt.
    The funny thing is that people like this think that they are brave, macho, patriotic.
    You’re not brave if you have to mention that you have a gun when you are making an argument.
    You’re not manly if you’re afraid of your unarmed neighbors because they have a problem with you shooting squirrels in their back yard.
    You’re not patriotic if you think that being American means that everyone should agree with you, or face the consequences.
    I guess the neighbor should put up a sign saying,” My neighbor likes gay sex -> ”
    Free speach… Right?

    • Jim says:

      No, unless your neighbor actually likes gay sex, that would be be libel. It he liked gay sex, then it would be an advertisement.

  24. Everybody who’s for gun control please look at countries that have enacted gun bans. Usually a gun ban leads directly into government tyranny. Take a look at Nazi Germany for instance (before somebody cites Godwin’s law do note I’m not comparing anybody to Hitler and am using a historically accurate example for an argument that needs a look into history).

    After the Nazi’s came to power they required citizens to register all firearms. Shortly after registration they confiscated all the registered firearms as they knew who owned them and where to find the owners. And after that we had the holocaust which ended up killing millions of defenseless civilians. And armed citizenry gives people a fighting chance against such situations and makes those who would commit tyranny think twice before doing it.

    Find for me a single example of gun control actually making a country safer (and before you bring up formerly Great Britain take a look at their violent crime rate compared to ours).


    I highly doubt you’ve ever shot a rifle in your life. Anybody who has knows you can’t throw the thing in the air, catch it, and shoot somebody without aiming. I’m guessing you don’t own guns because your temper drove you to a domestic violence case which in turn made you a prohibited person.


    You do realize that the husband in that story was a peace officer and carried a gun by fact of his career right? Most gun control advocates want to disarm civilians but allow police and military personnel to carry guns. So even if the Brady Bunch had their wet dream come true that murder suicide would still be possible since the husband was a peace officer. Would you like to try another irrelevant story as an example?

    • Jim says:

      Here are some facts for you. 6.5 million CCW in the US accounted for approximately 200 violent deaths including murder, suicide, and accidental, by all means, not just guns. 30/million +/-. National murder rate around 25/100,000 or 250/million. Less than 100 high level government employees involved in Fast and Furious, accounted for 200 + deaths. 2 per person.

      Who would you rather have have the guns?

  25. Buzz says:

    At least five burglars on this forum fessed up to the factoid that we crinimals now know where the stealable guns are. Thanx for the tip.

  26. Greg Allen says:

    Here is the dirty secret the gun and ammo industry doesn’t want you to know:

    guns SUCK at defense.

    Unless you’re an idiot or deluded, you know it’s true.

  27. Schleprock says:

    My neighbors house was broken into about 2-years ago. He’s a great guy, and I have no problem with him having a gun to protect himself. He wasn’t home at the time. They got past his alarm, broke into his safes(2- gun safes and a security safe)and made off with enough firepower to supply a small army. The bad guys are well armed now. What kind of guns should I buy to protect myself from the shotguns ,rifles, semi-automatic handguns and AR-15s? Should I keep them loaded and under my pillow? I’ll check back on your comments when I get the nerve to come out of my bomb shelter.


  28. Thomas says:

    The real dirty is that the police cannot/will not protect you against theft. If a thief breaks into your house, your odds of catching the thief or getting any of your stuff back are pretty close to zero. Having or not having guns makes no difference in 99% of theft cases.

    What would help is to throw out the rights of a thief that is in the act of breaking into your house or stealing your stuff. It is ridiculous that if you put a bear trap in your living room and a thief breaks in and steps in it, that you can be charged. Somehow, we have become a society that protects the rights of the criminals more than the victims.

    Wow, easily one of the worst photoshopping jobs I’ve ever seen

  30. Jeff Little says:

    Personally I like it when gun idiots do stuff like this. The federal government now knows who’s house needs to taken out with tanks.
