  •  Shouldn't the guy in #1 get 20 years just like... (2+ / 0-)

    ... Marissa Alexander in Florida? Isn't that the equivalent of firing a "warning shot?"

    And didn't many of our resident gun lovers claim that she deserved to be punished (perhaps not 20 years) for firing a warning shot instead of shooting to kill or maim?

    So why does the asshole in #1 get off without any punishment?

    Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.

    •  Why? (0+ / 0-)

      No. 1 was probably not charged for 2 reasons. First- the discharge was accidental (supposedly). Alexander shot on purpose. Second and probably most important- off duty cop visiting for a funeral.

      •  So after you fire your warning shot say, whoops. (1+ / 0-)

        I will try to do better next time. Problem solved.

        But Judge, I said 'Whoops'.

          In the listed events for #1, where do you see a warning shot? Vsiting off duty cop- there for a funeral. gets inherited a firearm? Screws up and discharges while cleaning. How in the heck do you get a warning shot or even compare this to the Alexander case... I guess apple = kumquat as both are fruit? Idk...

          I know you love doing this whole babyish "oopsie whoopsie" thing. But can you please leave comments that follow the thread, thou small as it may be?

            The GOP says you have to have an ID to vote, but $ Millionaire donors should remain anonymous?

              Actually. Ya- joined a whole week ago. So here's the deal- as I have said in another post, I have need reading Daily Kos for just a tad over a year. Considered myself libertarian and still do to a point I guess. However since reading here, I've had my viewpoint challenged and realized that I have more in common with the Democratic Party than I ever realized. I've not been a regular voter but did last year and voted mosty D too.

              As it was pointed out to me by someone else, my posts suck and are low grade. I suppose so.. New to community writing and posting. But I feel strongly in RBKA so I feel confident in posting on that. Keystone and ACA- not anywhere near policy deep so I won't comment. It's a comfort thing. But DK has moved me over.. But the way some people respond to new posters sometimes pushes them away.

            In your comment.

            Guess you read my dossier. I know RkBA keeps a dossier on me. It warms my heart because I think more about my old farts than what RkBA said.

            If you say whoops after firing that would prove accidental discharge and take the supposedly out of it.
