Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Redneck?

Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Redneck?

PostBy: Richard S. On: Tue Feb 26, 2008 4:24 pm

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small
children. Suddenly, an Islamic terrorist with a huge knife comes around
the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah,
raises the knife, and charges at you.


You are carrying a Glock 40 cal., and you are an expert shot. You have
mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.


What do you do?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


1. Democrat's Answer

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!

Does the man look poor? Or oppressed?

Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

Could we run away?

What does my wife think? What about the kids?

Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of
his hand?

What does the law say about this situation?

Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?

Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does
this send to society and to my children?

Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?

Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to
wound me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on , could my family get away
while he was stabbing me?

Should I call 9-1-1 ?

Why is this street so deserted?

We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a
happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.

This is all so confusing!

I need to discuss with some friends over a latte and try to come to a
consensus.

2. Republican's Answer:


BANG!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3. Redneck's Answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!BANG! BANG! BANG!
BANG! BANG! Click....

(sounds of reloading)


BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
BANG! BANG! click

Daughter: 'Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips
or Hollow Points?'

Son: 'You got him, Pop! Can I shoot the next one?'

Wife: 'You are not taking that to the taxidermist.


I'm definitely Redneck. :D

Redneck! But in the great state of Maryland, first of all I would go to jail as they do not issue permits to carry unless you are a judge or polictician and second, too many bangs for Maryland also. It's illegal to have a clip that holds more then 10 rounds. But many like myself rely on the old saying that it's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Sorry but I don't think I fall into either category. I'm too cheap to carry a gun so I'd have to take him down and use his own knife to slowly remove his head from his own shoulders...and I mean slowly...I believe in torture.

However...I do like to be called a Redneck also.

Redneck....
I think in the 1910's or 20's tenthousand coal miners marched from Pa, NY, Ky, and other states to an area in W.Va. to help out on strike that was taking place there. They wore red bandanas around their necks, the press called them Rednecks.

Redneck.
I'd have to do significant damage with the first 6 rounds to give me enough time to reload the six-shooter.

Funny, but sounds hauntingly like the outrageous 2nd Amendment arguments made after the Va Tech slaughter last April.

Remember? Some kook actually suggested that, if only more of the students/profs had been packing heat, the killer could have been taken out sooner. Nevermind that people might be taken out on other days over girlfriends, or parking spaces.

C'mon, people even had to check their guns when they came into Dodge City, didn't they? Do we have a 2nd Amendment right to BAR's or Thompson sub-machine guns, or Uzi's? Why, then, do people think there ought to be an unrestricted right to handguns?

Rhetorical question, this, because the Supreme Court has granted certiorari and will hear the District of Columbia handgun case, so the question will be answered by a good, Republican Supreme Court by next May. And then we can have real re-enactments of the "OK Corral" all over the good old U. S. of A.

Unless Scalia, Thomas, Alito and Roberts have morphed into "Democrats" by the above definition. :P

I'm by the above definition a 'Redneck'. No question.

Now, about the 'outragous' arguments about letting handguns on campus.. lets see...

OK, got it.. if you see a guy who is well put together, carries himself well, wearing a shirt from a local martial arts training school/gym. He has a good looking girl with him, obviously they are close.. Do you walk up and tell the guy his girlfriend is ugly, or worse a *censored*?? With the obvious result that he will pound you into the ground.

Or if you saw the same girl on the arm of a 98# wimp, would you hesitate just a little bit less to be an ass to the couple??

It's real simple, if you face the likelyhood of facing a formidable force or responce, you will think about stepping out of line... if there is virtually no likelyhood of any responce there is little to make you hesitate..

Put another way: An armed society is a POLITE society..

When second count, the police are only minutes away..

I carry a gun because a policeman is too heavy.

Absolutely yes. I never saw them excepted in the second amendment. Lawyers and judges want to read exceptions into the 2nd amendment that are not there and see other "rights" into other amendments, mostly the first that are not there. Why can't we just read the English as it is written? No, we read it, think about what we would like it to say and then dream up some cockamamie "legal logic" to try to convince the public that this is what "the Founders" were really thinking but just could not express in writing back then. Everyone wants to advance their political agenda on these things.

When you hear that they have seized gaw's guns that is when you know gaw is dead.

All the tough talk is well and good, gents, until somebody who gets mad at you happens to be packing, and just a little bit quicker, than you.

One need only look to Jeb Bush's "no need to retreat, even in public" self-defense law in FL to see that escalation is no solution.

(BTW, if I'm not mistaken, black powder, single shot was the state of the art at the time of the drafting of the Bill of Rights.. So, if we apply the logic being advanced here, why should we stop at semi-auto handguns? Why not shoulder-fired anti-tank weapons, or SAM's? That'll make everybody real polite. :roll: OTOH, if we apply the typical Scalia "textualistic" argument to the new technology, the Constitution is silent on anything the drafters didn't know about, so maybe it's all fair game for regulation. Like I said, stay tuned: smarter people than any of us will be making all these arguments to the Supremes this Term and they'll be ruling on the meaning of the 2nd Amendment for the first time since the 1930's, IIRC.)

This issue tends to bring out an urban-rural disconnect. The farther distant people are from their looney neighbors, the safer they feel with loaded handguns in the house.
