      I have a friend who was randomly targeted and run down on a residential street while riding. Crazy people live among us.......

        Gee,

        Just another reason why I keep a gun in my pocket at all times when I'm rolling around.

        There was another incident like that recently in Las Vegas, where a woman who lived in her car with her young daughter just started running down tourists that were on foot on The Strip.

          I think a gun would do you little good with a truck on your head.

            Agree, maybe a LAW? or some sort of RPG? But let me check first if I can carry one of those under the trike cowling.... ..... .... ..... nope, no room for those.... :)

                Well,

                If it was a truck that was purposefully on your head and getting ready to do more carnage, it may be my choice to have my bullet in theirs, even though you apparently would be unprepared to do the same in my case, or in the case of someone you know or love. That's a sad fact, dude!



                And here's a dilemma that Statists and State-licensed CCW people seem to face, where being a Good Samaritan is self-injurious:

                  Well, I think a gun won't be of much help b/c it will need to be a very powerful gun to punch a hole through a windshield, which will need to be precisely aimed while riding a bike, so your average GLock won't punch through it, let alone stop the 4500 lbs behemoth headed your way; you might need a very powerful 44 or 50 cal pistol to cleanly penetrate the windshield and do damage to the driver and hope him getting shot will veer of course and not hit you. The other option is to manage to shot out one of the front tires and hope he can't steer it and wreck into something else, not you. Unfortunately these guys didn't saw it coming since he was coming from behind...

                    Yeah, exactly gman. You can't protect yourself from something you don't know is coming and after you're hit you'd be in no fit shape to "protect yourself" even with an RPG.

                    So Christian, how about enlightening us to the mechanics of this "gun protection" of yours. Perhaps you're thinking you'd have got the driver before he hit those bikers when he was reportedly driving "erratically" - love to see that murder being explained; "yes officer, I saw this guy driving erratically so I shot him in the head just in case he ran over a bunch of bikers." With that as an excuse I could shoot a couple of drivers every morning.

                        Well, of course, anyone can be caught unaware by a sucker puncher, a sniper, a mass shooting, or even by someone who plans to commit vehicular homicide on a mass scale.

                        I mean, you seem to be promoting the idea of "gun-free" zones, which seems to be where mass murderers like to go to do their mass murder, since virtually everyone there is unarmed and largely defenseless.

                        The incident in point doesn't seem to give the motive for the 30 minutes of "erratic driving" and then the several people being killed and injured.

                        But for the sake of the sensible preparedness dialogue, I'm presuming that the person was engaged in vehicular homicide on a mass scale, but unlike the two Public School kids at Columbine High School, whose killing spree went on for about 45 minutes, this guy seemed to be satisfied with one short episode of multiple murders. But it's very possible that this guy who killed all those bikers and then fled the scene (and later captured) could have attempted to run down some more people, and if someone like me was a witness to as much, would then be in a position to potentially stop further carnage.

                        That is a no-brainer.

                        The guy, if his intention was homicide, was not really stopped. He more seemed to let himself get captured after his dirty or crazed deed.

                        So, is your excuse for sending your kids, proverbially speaking, to Columbine High School, that all of those extortion-paid County employees know what they're doing and will keep my kids safe?

                        Yes, that seems to be you excuse, Ade...

                        As they say, "Don't bring a knife to a gun fight." And I'll also say, that in lieu of another homicidal vehicle, at least have a gun to protect yourself, loved ones, or others, if you want and decide to act to be a proverbial Good Samaritan, in spite of State consequences!

                        This isn't some esoteric "enlightened" knowledge or "mechanics" in suggesting that hand guns are a sensible form of self-protection, especially amongst a State orientation and society that promotes violence and mass murder on a global scale.

                        Not at all, it's a no-brainer.

                        But, feel free for you and your kids to go around naked, proverbially speaking, knowing that the extortion-paid cops were warned by witnesses with productive jobs 30 minutes beforehand of the erratic and soon-to-be murderous driver, but were too lazy, incompetent, or uncaring to stop him. And, of course they didn't, since they get paid their extortion money anyway since the State is a monopoly, and it follows that its smarter for them to not be in a hurry to put themselves in danger, you know, since they're getting close to that PERS/Police retirement, with its "defined benefits" that often keeps taxpayers on the financial hook, just because the FUND loses money in Stocks, Bonds, and Las Vegas conventions. Ha, ha, ha...

                        Yes, once upon a time, not proverbially speaking, I was vested in a Police/Fire subset of a PERS State retirement system.

                        Here one for ya, ha, ha, ha...

                          Ha! You have to give it to the NRA, they really know their audience. Every man in Switzerland pretty much does a stint in the army, and probably keeps his gun afterward. So there's your 1 in 2 okay?? Their low crime rate has little to do with gun ownership.

                        Here's another, now somewhat common occurrence amongst US Citizens, at another undoubted gun-free venue:

                        http://www.altpress.com/news/entry/m...mself_at_orlan

                        "Christina Grimmie, a 22-year-old singer known for her YouTube presence and stint on NBC’s The Voice, is in critical condition [now dead] after being shot following an Orlando concert on Friday night, reports USA Today.
                        ...Grimmie and the band she was opening for, Before You Exit, were selling merchandise after the show at the Plaza Live Theater when a man shot her, and then himself around 10:45 p.m. EST."

                          Not sure how more guns would have helped her. The guy was obviously a suicide case as he killed himself rather than anyone else once he'd shot her so the more guns the merrier as far as he was concerned. And as it was a surprise shooting, it would have been too late for any fast draw McGraw types to save the day - they may have even made it worse by panic shooting and hitting a bystander.

                          What places like this need is tighter controls to stop gun carrying nuts from entering public areas.

                            It is unfortunate when someone dies from whatever cause. To keep perspective, as I post this the US population is 323,751,146 with one added every 8 seconds. When a person has some notoriety the media sen$ationalizes it and makes a mountain out of a molehill, and those who are myopic are overwhelmed. http://www.census.gov/popclock
