How about this story, where a dad protected his 17-yo daughter from being abducted by a gang of teen thugs, who had knives and guns. This happened at night. They went so far as to block the road off to his house with barrels.
On Nov. 7, four armed teenagers who had "concocted a plan to kidnap the teenage daughter" and then rob the Brackney family home were taken into custody by the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office (OCSO), the office said in a statement.
The teens were armed with a knife and guns, authorities said.
"The goal was to first force her out of her car by blocking the road with barrels and garbage cans," the OCSO said per the results of their investigation, adding that Amber simply drove around the blockade and did not exit her vehicle. "They then planned to head to her house, confront and subdue her father -- who they believed to be wealthy -- and rob the home."
I wonder how many times incidents like this occurred throughout the US that doesn't get reported in the media? Clearly, that man's gun saved his life and his daughter's life. And some people out there would strip him of his ability to defend himself and his family?
There's been another new shooting? Please post an article with some facts or specifics to the event. I've not heard a word about another shooting.
As far as thoughts and prayers toward victims and their survivors, maybe you don't want any and that's fine, but it's insensitive to demean those things for the multitudes that would appreciate it and who see it as SUPPORT.
Someday, terror may come to YOU in the way of a shocking, traumatic and sudden loss, and you may regret your words.
While I don't think we can or should control people having children I think that people who knowingly have children when there is a family history of mental illness should bare some resonsibility when crimes are committed.
She is serious. I don't know how you would prove such a case or try and ban people from having children based on their medical history.
I believe in the case of the Sandy Hook shootings, had he not killed his mother, she should have been brought up on some sort of charges for allowing easy access of firearms to someone with a known with mental illness. Had she behaved differently, it could have prevented that horrible tragedy. She did pay the ultimate price for her choices and that can't be undone.
If people with mental illness in their families were banned from having children, the human race would die off! lol Seriously, that's absurd- although Hitler did do that- (unfortunately, he got to choose who was mentally ill, so he left off himself and the SS-)
