I have consistently been referring to the imposition of martial law in
order to preserve order and make the ability to revert to civil law

You have been throwing up red herrings and other ad hoc comments to see
if you could get anything to stick...
Please stay on point. The discussion was of police and the military
shooting looters on sight, under orders from the governor or the
president. Nobody was "taking the law into their own hands." It was a
necessary measure to restore civil order, and the only responsible
course of action.
There were some cases of building occupants shooting people attempting
to break in. That was self-defense, an entirely different issue.
Nobody objects to killing in self-defense.
You were the one with the fantasy of gettin' your gun and heading out to
pot a few looters. The police and military would be justified in
killing you too. In fact, that small armed group that the Army wiped
out was probably a batch of nut cases like you. What skin color do you
think they were?
there are plenty of our legislators and congressmembers who DO object to the
use of deadly force in self defense. Strange, but true. Senator Feinstein
has stated something to the effect of "I understand why some people want
guns for hunting, but self defense is not something I am comfortable with".
We also hear quite frequent howls when a police officer shoots someone in
the firearm was legal, I think she got it from the police dept. from their
recovered gun inventory, and I think she had a "junior G man" badge from the
Justice Dept, so she was some sort of U.S. Marshall - she could carry
rank has its privileges, eh. What a hypocrite . . .
C'mon, Dave. People in the NRA are probably LESS likely to be vigilantes.
Same as most people in Alcoholics Anonymous don't ever drink. OUTLAWS are
NRA is mostly law abiding gun owners like myself. Would I kill to protect
me or mine? Yes. I also do a little martial arts. I'm a dyed in the wool
Pacifist from the 60s. Grew up near UC Berkeley. Way too liberal for most
groups like this (do well in women's groups and arty groups). I believe in
force if it lessen violence. And other people as left leaning as I also are
NRA card-carrying members.
Stop being insulting, or the good message you have will be lost!
Believe me, I get all the licit sex I want. And I'm a long way from the Bay
Area now. Up in Alaska.
So you're a rural from San Bruno, eh? My dad was born and raising in the
middle of Oakland. The family had a cow, chickens and a big vegetable
garden. Of course, that was 100 years ago.
I was watching cable last night a few "hunters" were describing a beautiful rare
African's "deer" (could not remember what kind of deer) they planned to kill in
the bush. A "hunter" took aim a killed it. I just don't understand how anyone
could enjoy killing that rare and beautify animal? I think it's really senseless
and mind bogging! I am sure any NRA card carrying member will have a million
reasons to end the animal life.
