So sez Vice President Biden. That will scare people away from the
He must be getting hold of the same stuff Cheech and Chong used years
"Daves not here"
Yesterdday CBS news showed a video that Feinstein played
at the hearings showing the weapons that the libs want to ban.
It featured an obviously fully automatic rifle going full speed, with
Feinstein saying in the background "This weapon is legal today......"
Which of course is a gross distortion and not what the
core of the gun debate about "assault weapons" is
even about. No such weapon was used in any of the
shootings. Just another lib lie, repeated with relish by
the lib media.
Since the 1934 Gun Control Act, which regulated fully-automatic weapons,
there has been exactly ONE crime committed with an automtic weapon.
And that crime was undertaken by a police officer who scored his weapon from
his police department's weapons locker.
With secret service living/renting a guest house on his property in
Chateau Country you probably can't get within a half mile of his house.
It would also be illegal to fire a shot out the door, as well as it
would be illegal to shoot someone outside the house. Castle doctrine
only allows you to shoot an intruder inside.
Biden's previous residence was surrounded by a stockade fence. You
could not even see the house.
We're not talking about the "common man" here.
Not so. "Castle Doctrine" or no, you are allowed to use deadly force in
defense of yourself. It could be "up close and personal" as was the claimed
case of Trevon Martin or it could be some distance away.
If my assailant is standing ACROSS THE STREET and taking pot-shots at me, I
have an absolute right to shoot back (assuming other facts not in evidence).
If, to zero in on your scenario, the malefactor is chopping on my front door
with an axe and screaming "I'm gonna cut off your head ! I'll teach you to
trample my petunias!" It would be not only legal, but meritorious, to shoot
through the door.
Inside, outside, might make a difference in the "reasonable man" test, but
is irrelevant as far as the law is concerned.
Right but people that get in trouble for example are the guy that shot
someone stealing his motorcycle outside going away from him. Police
said since he was not threatened he should not have been shot. I've
heard people told candidly by cops that if they shoot someone outside to
drag him inside.
Coming home today, I thought I might drive by Biden's house to see what
I might see. Didn't see anything and not even sure where the drive was.
Years ago I used to drive this road to work but when they expanded the
main road it leads to, I could no longer easily access the main road as
they changed the Biden road. It is a nice oasis of rich people in an
otherwise crowded area.
As for shooting at a fleeing subject, you are correct regarding some
jurisdictions. In my state, however:
--- begin quote
Texas Penal Code 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is
justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible,
(1) if he would be justified in using force against the other under Section
(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is
(A) to prevent the other's imminent commission of arson, burglary,
robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal
mischief during the nighttime; or
(B) to prevent the other who is FLEEING immediately after committing
burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from
escaping with the property; and
(3) he reasonably believes that:
(A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other
(B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the
land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of
death or serious bodily injury.
--- end quote
No cop would EVER tell you to drag the deceased inside! For starters, how
would you explain the trail of blood?
Remember, too, you always have the right to self-defense (unless you live in
the UK). Also, remember it's your word against nobody's*. "Officer, he kept
shouting 'I'm gonna kill you! I'm gonna kill you! And I, in fear of my life,
* Or, if the stink-eye lives, it's the word of a righteous citizen against
that of an obvious, and probably well-known, goblin.
I've heard this is tampering with evidence,
and will get you in a lot more trouble.

Maybe Texas but far from "most states".
In fact most states do not allow deadly force unless there is imminent
threat of bodily harm, some even qualify that to say you must have no
ability to run away, even inside your house. (I know a guy in Md who
did hard time for it)
If you shoot someone running away in a "blue" state, you are going to
jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200
# Correct. Even the police are not allowed to shoot fleeing felons in
# most states unless there is a very good reson to do so, the act of
# fleeing in and of itself is not sufficient.
What is wrong with your reading skills
Notice the "WHILE COMMITTING A FELONY " at the end of the sentence ?
Or was that phrase too complex for you two ?
