might have used a ball bat
Yep. I find that it's quite common for someone to go after a car full of
possibly armed teenagers with baseball bat. Twenty or thirty whacks and you
might fatally dent the car. (-: I am sure the occupants will cooperate with
you and sit quietly in the car, waiting for you to reach them with your bat.
Certainly the kind of attack in question is as commonly committed with a
baseball bat or a knife as it is by a gun. That's why we read about the
many drive-by battings, knifings, blow-gun and bow & arrow attacks that
occur across America every day. /sarcasm off
The problem is actually irresponsible a$$holes *with guns.* An
irresponsible a$$hole with a gun tends to be far more successful at killing
people than one with a knife. Or a baseball bat. Or a spear. Or a
What we've seen so far with the "popcorn killer" and the "loud music killer"
is that events that previously *might* have ended in a shouting match or
even a fistfight now end in murder. It will take a string of such cases
before the pendulum swings back to sanity.
If you think "if it wasn't a gun, it would have been a knife, etc." is an
accurate assessment, then ask yourself this: If you were sitting in a car
and were about to face an armed assailant, would you rather face one who was
coming at you with a 14 round Glock, a Louisville Slugger or a Bowie knife?

The facts of the particular case under discussion are such that it's very
doubtful the assailant would have been able to kill (or even injure)
*anyone* in that car with a baseball bat, knife or anything short of a gun
or anti-tank weapon.
I think BobF was exactly right in implying this particular incident wouldn't
have happened with any other form of deadly weapon. When was the last time
you heard of a single assailant taking on a car full of young men (allegedly
armed, but apparently not) *successfully* with a baseball bat? Not outside
of a "Walking Tall" sort of flick, anyway.
Ironically, if the popcorn/texting shooter had carried a baseball bat into
the theater instead of concealed pistol, it's doubtful the texter would have
been killed. With one look he would have been on visual notice there's
something wrong with the guy whining about texting during the previews.
"He's got an effing baseball bat - WATCHOUT!" Maybe forced open carry in
the answer. (-:
I'm sure you meant the irresponsible asshole who was playing the loud
obnoxious music then running his mouth when asked to turn it down. I
wouldn't hesitate if to pop a cap in a DAN if it threatened me after I
asked it to turn down its loud obnoxious music. ^_^

No one should die for playing loud music...and would you shoot when your child was in your car? WTF...they should remove his brain by anal-rectomy...he ain't use in it anyway!
somewhere between 500,000 and 2.5 million crimes are prevented each
year because people own guns. If you don't wish to own one, that is
your choice. And if you are a really strong believer please put a
sign on your house alerting everyone that you don't own guns.
The problem with Progressive Liberal Leftist Commiecrat Freaks is the
fact that they are willing to give up their rights but they want to
force everyone else to give up their rights too. If the P.L.L.C.F.
decide they will submit to body cavity searches so they can be safe,
according to them, you must also submit to an anal probe. o_O
