Fool About; Find Out

 

Recently in Philly, a guy shot some people who attempted to rob him at gunpoint. Two of the three attackers pointed guns at the man.

Here’s some news twaddle about the event. Can’t wait to hear how this one went down as the facts are developed:

Every hoodlum and thug, political or for gain, should be on notice that this country is tired of taking their guff.

    The left doesn’t like it when ordinary citizens use deadly force to protect themselves and their property.  However, the MSM’s high-profile coverage of these cases is proving the need for self-defense even more.

    Like the old saying goes, “When you need help in seconds, the police will be there in minutes.”

    There’s also this Q&A:

    Q:  Why do you carry a concealed weapon?

    A:  Because I can’t carry a cop in my pocket.

    He shot black guys.  Clearly a white supremacist.

    An Internet search shows almost no news about this shooting so far.  Could that be because of the race of the assailants?

    Takes a little while for Kalorama Central to get their act together on Sunday morning.

    There is a meme out there I can’t find now. It shows Andrew Cuomo asking, “Why does anyone needs 10 rounds in a pistol?”

    Sam Elliot answers, “You’re a special kind of stupid, aren’t you? For the same reason we don’t buy toilet paper one sheet at a time. When [stuff] happens, we need to be prepared.”

    Okay, but surely questions must be asked! 

    Why didn’t he just comply with their demands? Surely his mere money wasn’t worth these human lives?

    Why, if he had to shoot, didn’t he shoot them in the leg? 

    Would he have shot them if they had been white? Or Asian?

    I think he’ll turn out to be asian, which would contribute to media paralysis.

    Not as much as if he turns out to be “non-binary” or something.

    It’s ok, I’m sure they had Life Insurance.
