Am I a bad person for finding this amusing rather than tragic?

But just think, if there had just been a 3rd CWP holder in the laundromat that was packing, then this… wait, that doesn’t make any sense…. but I’m sure the NRA will find a way to capitalize on it.

Isn’t it obvious? Then that third person would have had to shoot an innocent bystander, who would be alive today if only they’d been carrying, because as we’ve been told a thousand times now, “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun”.

It was the concealed part that is what cost them their lives.

If it was mandatory open carry then this never would have happened.

(and while driving the gun must be duct taped, or secured by some other fashion, to rear view mirror)

I do think that having turret mounted “Ma Deuces” on the roof would make us all much more polite and considerate drivers. Maybe scale it down by an order of magnitude or so and go with with paintball guns (with a not-staining paint). That way if you see a car with lots of splotches, you know he’s a jerk driver.

“Earlier today a concerned citizen with a CWP witnessed two men shooting at each other at an intersection in town. He shot and killed both men, stating; “Well. I didn’t know who was the bad guy and who was the good guy so I thought I’d just defend myself from the possibility that I may be shot at.”

snerk. No, seriously, you forgot the sarc tags.

Paintball guns legal on cars? You’d see paint everywhere. Mr. Road rage unhappy because he’s late and the person ahead is only going the speed limit? Ms. Bigot seeing one of /them/ driving? Bored teen driver? And that doesn’t even bring into the question the danger. High speed high momentum machinery being manually controlled and you want to allow people to blind the drivers. (What, you think the windshield will remain free of paint?)

The “armed society is a polite society” theory only works if people are angels. Since it’s not you get Somalia and the Tribal zone of Afghanistan.

ROFL… It’s always the implementation details that trip me up.

Funny thing is that Heinlein would have agreed with you. If you read the novel that line comes from, you’ll see it’s not presented as all that good a thing. He touched on the idea later with his concept of Coventry where people who don’t want to live with societies rules can go have an anarchic paradise where might makes right.

A wild west shootout in the 21st Century—-just what the NRA and gun fetishists like.

You need scarce virtual paint. Every driver starts off with 5 points, and gets one more per thousand miles driven. When you ‘shoot’ another driver, you expend one point and they lose one point. If your total hits 0 for any reason, you need to re-take the driving test and/or explain why you should be allowed back on the road.

I think the NRA should publish official rules for a proper duel. We can’t have lawful gun owners just popping caps in each other unless its a fair contest.

Carrying a gun for self defense makes you safer just like not wearing your seat belt makes you safer.

re: #16 Mich-again

At one forum I now lurk at, though I was a major participant for years, a poster asked the question, “If you’re walking into a bar and you’re carrying would you prefer open or concealed.”

My reply? “I’m so glad I live in a place where walking into a bar doesn’t result in an automatic dick swinging contest.”

Rules? I don’t see any stinking rules in the Holy Second Amendment, do you?

More on the Double Concealed Carry Killings

One of the two men involved in the shoot-out, Robert Taylor, lost his concealed carry license in 2006 after a drunken driving conviction. He was able to get his license back in 2010 after his three year suspension was over.

But he was originally charged not only with drunken driving and carried a concealed weapons while intoxicated. That would have earned him a lifetime suspension of his concealed carry license. But prosecutors decided to drop the firearms charge because the gun was, in their estimation, unrelated to Taylor’s intoxication.
