        well... to be fair, 150 million people have been killed since 2007.
        Just think, there could be 150 million wounded people, that would be preferable.

            Really misses the point. The only time you should shoot is if you think your life is in danger. If your life is in danger, why wouldn't you eliminate the threat?

            I know. Rhetorical.

              This changes EVERYTHING!

              The shooting range industry is going to have to change all of their targets to “center leg mass”!

                I have no problem with the idea of shooting someone in the leg at close range with a 12 gauge. Pretty sure you'd hit a major vessel.

                    I had some friends who fathers were stationed and trained at Blanding. One of the fathers always talked about how dangerous knives were. Back then we all had little knife collections and the ninja stars, crap like that, and he didn't want to see us get hurt. As we got older, we found out that he worked ops in South and Central America, and was known for his knife skills. Funny how things go.

                            used to get the fun vids from Mexico, you know heads stacked in showers, people in barrels, etc. One was of a live knife fight. The guy moved in fast, slashing faster than you would have thought possible. Opponent looked like a manatee hit by a prop. Just fell back and entire abdomen parted, ninja spiralizer.. over in like 5 seconds

                            DNC is thinking "put a silencer on Joe, he's shot".

                            if you admit you shot someone in the leg on purpose youre going to jail. if you didn't think (reasonably believe) you needed to use deadly force to stop them, then you cannot shoot them.

                                    From the article:
                                    "“Instead of standing there and teaching a cop, when there’s an unarmed person coming at them with a knife or something, you shoot them in the leg instead of in the heart is a very different thing. There’s a lot of different things that could change,” Biden said in a meeting with community leaders at Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, Del.:

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.

                                        The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
