Kalashnikov vs BB Gun

Mesa, Arizona -- She was asleep when Gricel Ruelas was suddenly awakened by a crash in the night. The fifteen year old girl let out a scream when the home invaders burst into her bedroom. She was grabbed by the hair and dragged away from the closet she was trying to hide in. The men brandished a Kalashnikov style rifle, holding it to her head.

Arming himself with a BB gun and a firm resolve to protect his daughter, her father, Leonardo Lucia appeared to face down the criminals. The intruder with the rifle dropped his gun and ran. Daniel Lopez, a parolee did not retreat. Daniel LopezHe was held by Lucia and an uncle until police arrived on the scene.

Lopez was taken into custody and booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree burglary, aggravated assault and criminal damage. Thus far charges of attempted kidnapping have not been filed. Police have not yet captured his partner in crime.

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. When men like Daniel Lopez decide to pillage a man's family and property in the middle of the night, a firm resolve is necessary to repel the attack. A real firearm helps as well. Thank God the determination of Mr. Lucia and company as well as the fear and uncoordinated attack of the assailants made up for his lack of firepower. The best BB gun for a home invader is this one.

Lopez looks like he has tattoos around his neck. I wouldn't be surprised if he has "13" "67" or "76"
tattooed on him somewhere.

He sounds like an MS-13 member and I'd bet he's here illegally.

Who cares whether he's here "legally" or "illegally?" He's a criminal. There are plenty of homegrown criminals. They should all have one thing in common: they should be dead or working to compensate their victims.

120 years ago, when immigrants were pouring into the country, people and groups including the KKK were griping constantly. It wasn't that they were upset that it was "illegal." It was 100% legal. They didn't like dusky-skinned "furriners comin' in and messin' our country up. They talk funny."

If you're concerned about immigrants using up "free" services like welfare and medical care, you'd better either A)Consider the real source of the problem: (taxpayer-funded programs and the government weasels you vote in to keep them going.) B)Start loudly proclaiming how you'd like to deport mendicant white people and thousands of inner-city African Americans back to their respective countries. It's the only intellectually honest thing to do.

No wonder that guy was fooled by the BB gun -- he can't keep his eyes open.

Interesting timing, Xavier. I just bought a Mossy 500 yesterday and some 00 reduced recoil. Will be the first time I've used the reduced recoil stuff and am interested to see if it gets things down to where the wife can handle it.

My concern isn't about "dusky-skinned furriners" My concern is with people who have clearly demonstrated a willingness to violate the laws of our country by coming here illegally. Many of these people then stay and commit violent crimes,steal identities, commit welfare fraud or drive drunk and run over innocent people.

If that makes you think that I'm racist or as you seem to be hinting, a sympathizer of the KKK then so be it, since you clearly lack some critical thinking skills. BTW the Klan doesn't look kindly on people of my ethnicity.

As for taking up "free" services, that is an issue. As a libertarian leaning individual I don't like them, but my taxes pay for them.

There is no reason why my insurance, that I personally pay for, should have had to pay an 80,000 dollar hospital bill when my wife had complications delivering our child. $15 Tylenol my aching ass...

The grove-pickers (Yes, they were actual grove pickers.) down the hall got free hospital room and board and medicaid according to the nurses because they were "indigent". This despite the fact that they are paid cash under the table.

Anarchy isn't an option.
without authority indeed...

BSP,

I used to have racist views regarding immigrants, and I didn't even know it. I used to want to protect the cultures already in America with force (walls, armed men on the border.) But if people thought the cultures in America were really worth preserving, they would actually have kids to whom they could pass it on. A truly superior culture is not threatened by the mere existence of an inferior culture. Therefore, you can't morally defend your culture with violence.

Now I realize that there is nothing intrinsically immoral or unjust about crossing a border to work. In itself, it violates the rights of no other individual.

You speak of Law? As a libertarian-leaning individual, what are laws supposed to do beside protect the life, liberty and property of individuals? Stopping all immigration because of the actions of certain individuals? That's like pulling over everyone and checking papers at a "DUI Checkpoint." Or, coming soon, according to the Supreme Court's logic: "Drug checkpoints," and "terrorist checkpoints," where everyone's car will be searched and papers gone over (for your safety, of course.)

You're entirely correct: there is no reason why you should have to foot the bill for anyone else, for anything else. People should pay for services as they use them. Your earnings, not your insurance, pays for other people's healthcare. Does it really matter if they're illegal or not? There are plenty of people in the inner cities who continue to play street warfare because they know the docs'll stitch 'em up for free.

But is the problem the freeloader, or the government weasels who keep the government trough filled with your tax dollars, through force or threat thereof?

You say "Anarchy is not an option." I just want to make sure you understand what anarchy actually is. Anarchy is the radical notion that other people are not your property, BSP, and that they can not be forced to work in order to support the implementation of your policies through the individuals you vote for. Anarchists are not molotov-cocktail throwing, black-hooded, saggy-panted, sulky goth teenagers, as they are so often portrayed. They're merely people who don't like initiating violence against others. Anarchists (and real libertarians)do not initiate aggression even vicariously, through the politicians whose policies require taxes (acquired through violence or the threat thereof) to implement.

Now, why is anarchy "not an option?"

It was a good thing the thugs didn't decide to engage in a gun fight. You never want to bring a bb gun to a gun fight if you can avoid it.

His heroism most likely saved his daughter from sexual assault &/or death. Statistics prove that fighting back against criminals is always better than giving in, even if you are only bringing a bb gun to the fight. Most criminals only expect easy victims, and will often run away when faced by someone willing to defend themselves. Why would they want to stay & risk their lives in a fight when they can simply run down the street and find an easier target.
