Even trains don’t like felons

You know, it’s not really all that hard to avoid getting run over by a train. They run on tracks, and except for a few spectacular cases of train derailment if you stay off the tracks they can’t harm you. This guy failed to heed that basic truth.
I swear to God, I am not making this up. From the Shelby Star, 2 years ago,
It’s been a theme of this blog that bad things happen most often to bad people.  Apparently that even applies to train accidents.
I just feel sorry for the poor guy who gets to wash him off the train. Yuck.

Why was my son killed?

I know we are supposed to feel terrible for the mothers of people murdered. Whatever happened, their mothers probably loved them. Case in point.
He was a good boy. He just hung around with the wrong people.
Judging by that record, HE was the wrong people. Three separate convictions for assault on a female, along with possession with intent to sell, possession, communicating threats, larceny and possession of stolen goods.
He was a bad person. That doesn’t justify his death, but it certainly  tempers my feelings towards his murder a bit. When you get involved in crime, death is an ordinary business hazard. It’s like rock climbing without a rope. Sure everyone feels bad if you fall, but we all know that you chose to do it.
When the gun grabbers scream bloody murder about “Gun Death™” remember that it’s murders like this that make up the majority of killings. They hope that you won’t look too deeply at who is getting killed and who is doing the killing. They are hoping that you are stupid enough to believe their implication that regular gun owners suddenly snap and start killing innocent bystanders.

Look beyond the story they tell and see the actual people involved.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: Just Lying Around edition

So I guess that guns are so common in Armagh that they are just lying around in fields.
Are we to suppose that it’s only due to strict gun control that Irish lads are only finding guns and not artillery pieces on the local ballfields? Or is this just one more reminder that banning guns does not actually limit criminal access to them?

Meanwhile in Rebecca Peters Paradise: What’s With All These Legs Getting Shot edition

It’s apparently open season on legs in Australia.

Good thing they have such strong gun control in Australia. If they didn’t, the criminals might be tempted to aim a bit higher.

What does a cross feel like when faced with a vampire?

We know what happens when a vampire gets confronted with a cross, right?


Has anyone ever wondered what it felt like from the cross’s point of view?
I subscribe in my RSS feed to an extreme leftist blog run by professional agitators. Occasionally they say something stupid about guns. Like most professional leftists, the ratio of saying something stupid about guns/saying anything at all about guns = 1.0.
The latest is a quick post where Rob whines that there might be guns at both political conventions (a lie, NC bans that) and that a candidate for State Auditor is having a gun range fundraiser. He calls these two stories “sobering and depressing.” What can you say. He has a delicate constitution.
What’s fun is the screaming in the comments when I told Rob that their efforts to demonize gun owners was obviously not working as NC Concealed Handgun Permits were growing at about 20% per year. Other commenters are acting like vampires being menaced by the Cross. It’s kind of funny. So far there have not been any Markley’s Law violations, but we have had a Ravenswood Law violation. I’m surprised it took as long as it did. The pearl clutching is particularly entertaining.
Someone get loosen that guy’s corset and get him some smelling salts.

One shot and one injured in Asheville

In our continuing series on violent crime we turn to Asheville,
So what sorts of people get harmed in this way?
So both have criminal records. Does that surprise you that commonly, the people affected by criminal violence are much more likely to have criminal backgrounds?
It shouldn’t.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: A Hood, A Mask, and A Gun edition

Once again we see that draconian gun control makes absolutely no difference in crime. We know that items that are in short supply are expensive. If guns were difficult and expensive to get, ordinary criminals would not be able to obtain them. They would be reserved for those who had money and power.
They certainly wouldn’t be easily obtained for the purpose of robbing stores.
The only thing that gun control has done is disarm the law abiding. The criminals seem to always have a gun when they need one.

No, that’s OK, I think I’ll hold it

Somehow I don’t really feel like using the toilet right now.

A glass bottom bathroom at the top of a 15 story elevator shaft.

Seriously.

Another restaurant homicide

The gun grabbers will tell you that it was a good thing that no one is allowed to carry a gun in the Westridge Grill in Rocky Mount. Guns are dangerous, especially near alcohol. Can they explain this then?


 
One wonders why the suspect wasn’t deterred by the fact that he was committing a felony by bringing a gun into a restaurant that serves alcohol. Not to mention the fact that carrying a concealed firearm without a permit is a serious misdemeanor.
Even possessing a firearm as a convicted felon is a crime. All those laws he broke and none of them stopped him from murdering his ex.
Tomorrow the gun grabbers will be screaming that the victim’s death was our fault because we wouldn’t agree to “reasonable” gun control. They will be ranting and raving to the battered women advocates that guns are bad news for women. Never mind the fact that once again it was a felon doing the killing.

Meanwhile in Rebecca Peters Paradise: Man in a Hoodie with a Gun edition

In an apparent attempt to simultaneously commit both a violent crime and a fashion crime, a man in a hoodie decided to rob a store in Australia.

No doubt some gun grabber here will start claiming that this hoodie wearing bandit got his gun at an American gun show.
Luckily the Australian shopkeeper did not have a gun, so the robber was able to flee unharmed, but richer by a few dollars.
