Copied this from the net tonight: Are you a Republican, a Democrat, to a Redneck?
Here is a little test that will help you decide

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you.

You are carrying a Glock cal 40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.

What do you do?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Democrat's Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!

Does the man look poor! Or oppressed?

Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

Could we run away?

What does my wife think? What about the kids?

Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?

What does the law say about this situation?

Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?

Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?

Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?

Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on , could my family get away while he was stabbing me?

Should I call 9-1-1 ?

Why is this street so deserted?

We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing!

I need to discuss with some friends over a latte and try to come to a consensus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Republican's Answer:

BANG!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Redneck's Answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Click....
(sounds of reloading)

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! click

Daughter: 'Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?'

Son: 'You got him, Pop! Can I shoot the next one?'

Wife: 'You are not taking that to the taxidermist !

If you don't believe in God it's your prerogative.
If you don't like guns that is also your prerogative.
But if someone breaks into your house you're going to start praying that help with guns shows up quickly.:p

First, I will try to better assess the situation (perhaps he is charging someone who is behind me, for example...) if the number of seconds allows. Then I will give him a bold, loud, authoritative "STOP", as I aim. If compliance is not swift and immediate, then yes, bang. That's when I will place my gun off to the side, call 911, sit down with my legs crossed and hands clasped behind my head, lament that I had no choice, and hope that the cops and the judicial system does not accomplish what my attacker failed to accomplish (destroying my life).

Your letting PC jeopardize your families life. If I am walking a deserted street with my family I am already completely aware of my surroundings. A nut job "locks eyes" with me and charges at me screaming with a knife he will be woefully under-armed.

just to play devil's advocate fred.... in this situation not many people will disagree protecting your family is priority #1.

now as to the silly list of democratic concerns/issues and PC BS... that's a different story when it comes to new terrorists being grown/created here or abroad. putting our heads into the sand and not caring about how our beliefs, behaviors and actions are perceived by others is naive and bound to promote more distrust and hatred.

we are incredibly privileged living in this country and our average standard of living is unfathomable and unobtainable for most people around the world, not recognizing how this could alienate others... again head in the sand. do you really think we are going to be able to "build a wall" or "bomb them all" as viable solutions?

i'm sure that our understanding and belief of the japanese 74 years ago today was equal to that of isis today... and here we are all talking about "jap crap" "rice burner" bikes. doesn't make them right or good, but lets hope this situation will evolve for future generations. fingers crossed.

I practice the Mozambique Drill a lot, so it would be BANGBANG, BANG.

That kind of messes the whole thing up as far as wall mount goes.

There is another saying; "There are no atheists on the battle field when the two way firing range is open."

Trick question isn't it? I would guess democrats are mostly unarmed.

I'd save my amo and use the attackers knife. The gun may alert his friends and is overkill IMO. When you see an attack coming you have the advantage as the defender to respond last second as the attacker is commited and bound by physics.

Stayed off this thread for obvious reasons....

I know my political beliefs and I am pretty damn sure I know what I would do given a certain situation....however, sometimes you just can't do a damn thing but pray, and rely on a higher power and being to lead you through the Valley of Death.
