    I just saw the video and can't believe that crap like this still happens.

    Imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and these guys were armed.

    We'd be reading about some crazed soldiers who went on a rampage against a group of poor, unsuspecting kids.

    I hope they capture and severely punish these stupid kids.

    Yeah, just over a thousand for the both of us, not including ammo.

    I thank G-d I never had to shoot anyone but feel better in knowing that if it was me in that video, the outcome would have been much different.

    Better them than me.

    A lot of times, just the threat of having and pulling a gun is enough to persuade a more rational criminal to look elsewhere for another 'victim' (and when that doesnt persuade them, then I say 'double tap'.)

    Doubtful.....when the legal and justified use of a firearm occurs...it's hardly a news event. Gotta keep pretending that guns are BAD and that they don't have a legitimate use except for bangers!

    Justified...yes. Legal? Well, Bernie spent some time in the slammer, and had a HUGE judgement placed against him.

    What's ironic in an ironic sort of way is that of the four punks that Goetz shot that day, the only one that didn't go on to have a spectactular criminal career is the one he put into the wheel chair.

    I pack because it gives me an opportunity to take everything I need for school for the day with me and keep it all in one place.

    Knowing that I can defend myself in a situation like that helps me to carry myself in a way that is more confident. Being more confident makes me less likely a target. Most criminals are lazy and will take the easiest path. I think I don't look or act that easy.

    Deselection. That is one of the strategies I teach.

    Since we're talking about crime - here's an interesting question for the folks on this thread.

    Regardless (or rather as Insertion would say, Irregardless) of the specific crimes discussed here, the overall crime rate in the nation has dropped dramatically over the past 10 years and continues to decline - more than 50% drop in overall crime, and by 2004 the murder rate was the lowest in 40 years.

    Of course there are number of "explanations" (both left-wing and right-wing varieties) for this - but the question is - which particular factor do you believe had the greatest impact on reducing crime?

    1. Tougher gun control laws
    2. Strong economy (well at least in the 90's)
    3. Tougher laws (3 strikes, longer prison terms, capital punishment)
    4. Tougher enforcement (more police, more prisons)
    5. Innovative policing strategies (e.g. NYC police during Guiliani's regime)

    There are host of other explanations also - aging population, changing immigrant demographics etc. Take your pick.

    Stricter gun control laws have been proven to be COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE in reducing crime (Canada, Australia, etc..). More liberal gun laws have shown to reduce it and recently there's been an increase in "shall issue" states usually with Florida leading the way. I've read several reports but don't have them on hand. I think 1911 may be able to supply a link.
