But what if they don't have any intention of shooting anyone? Then they are not a threat and no one should care.

Pointing a gun at someone is an assault. Yes, that person would be deemed a valid threat in every courtroom in the

Having a gun obviously and greatly increases a person's potential lethality.

Potential lethality is very different from threat level. A person operating a vehicle has a ton (literally) of potential lethality, but anybody pointing

If a person is 500 yards, is he more of a threat armed or unarmed?

As I said it depends on the circumstances. Try to pay attention. If that person 500 yards away is in a tree stand looking for a deer they're less of a threat

It certainly isn't business as usual...

BUT!!

We Americans seem to have two speeds,

1. business as usual, and

That is what it's all about. An unarmed teen was shot. We need to know why.

It's pretty apparent why... he (allegedly) attacked the cop, just like the 57 other bad guys who killed cops despite being "unarmed" in the past 14

Surely, there has to be a point where it's wrong for a cop to shoot an unarmed person, don't you think?

Sure there is, when they aren't posing a threat. But guess what? THAT APPLIES TO ARMED PEOPLE TOO! An armed person posing no

But, it's very relevant if the person is armed or not.

No, it's not. More people are killed with "personal weapons" (hands, fist, feet) in the US in any given year than by all types of rifles combined. It's ones ACTIONS

Yeah, much better to laugh at the idea that Islamofascists could ever possibly launch an attack on American soil. I mean when has that ever happened?!? Oh, other than the Ft. Hood shooting. Or 9/11. Or the first World Trade Center bombing. Or the

So, that pretty much flushes the "need a gun for self-defense" argument down the crapper.

Not particularly, considering that there have been anywhere from 1.4 million (using Clinton-era DOJ estimates) to 28 million (using

When people point out more people are killed in Chicago than anywhere else in the country Rahm is quick to point out that they rank 21st in per-capital murders and their numbers are down from 2010 and 2013. As they say there are lies, damn lies and
