Yeah I saw this, crazy
I watched the news for like 30 mins yesterday and I probably won't go outside for the next 4 days
What the hell is going on out there ?

Pack your pistols.
What the hell is wrong with people?
I guess I don't understand this line of thinking.
Brunswick is getting bad....14 YO kid and 17 Yo kids robbing people at gun point and shooting infants in the face...what don't you understand?
The 17 year old is De'Marquise Elkins. Yup. He's black. Never would have guessed that...

This is part of a racial situation nobody want to talk about. It's part of the situation we want to pretend does not exist. But there is a large contingent of a certain group that needs to be dealt with before our country slips even further into a lost cause. No longer can we just stay on the sidelines hoping the problem rights itself. Until someone does something about this, I will look at these stories and wonder what anyone else out there thought was going to happen. Until we admit the problem here, none of this will change.

Not that, telling everyone to pack a pistol.
I can understand you want to protect yourself and that most people do not have any temptation to shoot another person for no reason, but if everyone was packing a pistol, those people who DO have temptation to shoot another person are wielding a pistol in public places.
IMO, if you make gun laws more lenient and allow for people to pack pistols in public, you're playing with fire and as we have seen recently, you're going to get burnt.
Translation: Bring out the hoods!
It's a hard topic to bring to the table with America's history.
Disagree....Kennesaw GA has a law that all households should have a firearm....they are one of the lowest crime areas in America for yrs....trust me De'Marquise isn't robbing someone he knows has a firearm.
No, translation: If we can't act mature enough to realize a HUGE problem when we see one before it consumes us, then comparing this country to any great civilization ever is ludicrous. This will be the downfall of our society. But at least we were politically correct as Rome was burning outside our window.
Having a firearm in your home is fine. Legally carrying a firearm in public places is a different situation completely, IMO.
In 1982 the city passed an ordinance [Sec 34-21]
(a) In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefore.
(b)Exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who suffer a physical or mental disability which would prohibit them from using such a firearm. Further exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who are paupers or who conscientiously oppose maintaining firearms as a result of beliefs or religious doctrine, or persons convicted of a felony.
Gun rights activist David Kopel has claimed that there is evidence that this gun law has reduced the incident rate of home burglaries citing that in the first year, home burglaries dropped from 65 before the ordinance, down to 26 in 1983, and to 11 in 1984. Another report observed a noticeable reduction in burglary from 1981, the year before the ordinance was passed, to 1999. A 2001 media report stated that Kennesaw's crime rates continued to decline and were well below the national average, making citizens feel safer and more secure. Later research claims that there is no evidence that [the law] reduced the rate of home burglaries [in Kennesaw], even though the overall crime rate had decreased by more than 50% between 1982 and 2005.
The city's website claims the city has the lowest crime rate in the county.
It is legal to carry a pistol in public if you have your conceal carry license. Not sure where you are going with the "temptation" to shoot someone thing.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
I also agree with this statement.
I'm aware it is.
I'm unsure of how rigorous the process is to acquire a license to carry a pistol in public is, but unless they have mental testing for it, I don't see how most people couldn't get a license. To go along with that, people who have that slight temptation or aren't completely mentally stable could legally carry a pistol, which in turn puts the public at risk.
The people carrying illegally and robbing/killing people is what you should be focused on. You virtually never hear about people being accidentally shot in self defense situations, and the concern isn't warranted.
I see where you are coming from.
I just wish everyone was able to be brought up knowing the danger and power a firearm withholds. I don't think the people that commit these crimes realize that once you pull that trigger, there is no coming back.
History shouldn't have any bearing whatsoever on a case like this.....
I was referring to when he was basically saying how black people are committing most of these type of crimes, which is correct, and that it would be tough to bring up in any type of debate because racial profiling, regardless of whether it is true or not, is a sensitive topic.
How is this any different than the Trayvon stuff?
This is a hate crime; it's black on white crime.
If you want a way to get to hell.. Here's your ticket.
Times like these are when it's good to believe in God because you know what's going to happen to them after they die.
Unreal man, sickening.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
No gray area in this case at all.....clearly black and white....don't care about sensitive people these kids should get the death penalty at the very least.
I feel u.
But in this case, the death penalty is too easy of an out.
Put the 17 yr old in a high security camp, throw him gen-pop, and let him experience how criminals live out their lives behind bars.
