Default Some people......

Have the craziest mindset. I just had a guy ask me if I heard about the guy that came at the cops with a knife and got killed and now riots are happening. I don't even pay attention to that at this point because it's the same song and dance and I get tired of hearing it.

The guy says "Well I don't see why they had to do it that way. They should have shot him in the hand and wounded him."

So I said "He wasn't trying to wound that cop. If someone comes at me with a knife I'm shootin him in the face."

He didn't say much after that. The dude doesn't know me yet wants to make small talk and somehow expects me to agree with his idiotic beliefs on the subject. Sorry fella. I'm just waiting to get breakfast like everyone else. That doesn't make us the same.

You should've just asked him how many times he's shot knives out of an attackers hands or how many times he's disarmed a knife wielding attacker.
Or since he's such an expert on the subject matter that maybe he should be the one training our officers or sign up for a gun and a badge himself.

Yeah I don't think that guy has ever been in a street fight let alone a fight for his life or he would know that stuff isn't staged. Good luck shooting someone in the hand when they're swinging a knife at you Wyatt Earp. That's what I should have told him.

After I realized he was way out in left field I was straight to the point. It obviously worked because my stance on it made him stop talking. He felt uncomfortable I could tell. That's how it works sometimes when you start a conversation like that with a complete stranger. You're bound to run across someone that doesn't agree with you.

Sounds like he was repeating a narrative that the MSM kept saying regarding the situation.

Force on force training can be pretty eye opening to a non close minded person and even some close minded people.

Itís easy to armchair QB a deadly force situation but stuff happens in the blink of an eye.

I left out probably the best part. I was pretty much done talking about the whole thing and I thought he was because he was standing there in silence. After about 2 minutes he looks at me and says "They didn't have to shoot him that many times." I shrugged my shoulders and not another word was said.

I'm pretty set in my ways as I'm sure most of us are. I don't know if the guy wanted to come to an agreement on something at least or what but I really didn't care. He knows now. I wasn't trying to make the situation awkward, which it wasn't for me. But I was done talking about it. And I really don't care how many times they shot the dude. Shoot as many times as you have to if someone's trying to kill you as far as I'm concerned.

I just amuse myself sometimes when I'm put in situations like that. I have a way of shutting things down pretty quickly and I don't really have to say a lot. I'm pretty quick witted and I don't think people really expect it because I guess I don't look like I would be. He thought he was gonna sneak one in in me.....nope.

You seem a little infatuated with who I vote for. What does one thing have to do with the other. There a lot of people that are conservative to the core that can not abide The President. But I am sure they are all members of the same commune that I am.

No one has ever said Trump was a great person,,, he is often a buffoon ,, but he has been very good president and done more for this country in 4 years than the last 6 presidents combined,, open your eyes and look and what he has done not what he says on social media,,,

Quannell X, an outspoken "black civil rights" guy here in Houston did a police training earlier this year. He shot many innocent people, and died multiple times. When he got done, he said something along the lines of everything happens so fast.

I don't expect him to stop his race baiting, but I give him credit for trying to see it through a police officers perspective.

Lol, if the perp is still coming at me with a knife, the only thing stopping the shooting is if he falls over, or my mag is empty. I don't know the detail of the person who was shot, but like you, I can guess the story line.

It isnít an infatuation, as much as it is a fascination of how you can vote for someone that this antithetical to your values. I only point out the irony of your stated principles contrasted by the position your candidate.

I mean seriously make a sheet of the things you value. Then look at Bidenís stated platform and ask yourself does this align with my principles? He is anti commerce, anti police, anti gun..... I believe you own a small business, seem to support police and its a fairly safe assumption since you are on a hunting forum, you own guns...

Yes Trump is a big meanie. But his policy for 4 years has generally aligned with my principles. You would cut your nose off to spite your face...
