    They didn't pull the trigger. Or even squeeze it.

    Yes, they "could" have. But someone in the crowd "could" have done something, too.

    You came to see the mayor. Why are you stopping and engaging two people with guns instead of getting to where you were going . . . quickly?

    No shit, Sherlock. I was responding to his assertion that shooting trespassers was protected under the Castle Doctrine.

    BTW, I hope some firearms instructor has reached out to those two assholes to give them some gun safety lessons. If you're going to own a firearm, you must know how to use it safely and they damn sure weren't.

    It's the mob mentality: A couple of people probably GTFO, but in a group of dozens, they can't take all of you. Also, because you love to flip the question, why are two people trying to take on a mob walking down the street? Why not just let them go if they are walking by your house?

    And what Inky said. The poster who is going to shout "they're coming right for us!" as an excuse to shoot people in the street is troublesome.

    The mill? The bow? Can I plead uterus and say I have a Ben Pearson Cougar 962-64 and a Ben Pearson Puma 783-62? I learned on a compound but prefer a recurve.

    One other thing. I was kidding. I'm a big weenie about violence in real life. (Covering hockey notwithstanding.)

    Oh, yeah. About the McCloskeys? They made this week's Artnet:

    I've never gotten that good with my recurve. I guess I'm spoiled with the let off from the cams on my (various) compound bows over the years. I do like the idea of recurves, given compound bow manufacturers seems obsessed with distance shots now. Seems more true to the original bow hunting ethos.

    Good lord, she looks like hell. As in, a three-day bender and still no shower hell.

    Their drive for artistic beauty ironically makes the ugliest couple in America even uglier.

    Like I said before, an angry mob of hundreds, even if they're unarmed, is a threat. Have you not seen the beatings administered by BLM and Antifa radicals?

    As a former small arms instructor, they're in need of a serious class on safety. But that doesn't dispell the validity of the right of self defense and the right to defend your property against murderous Jacobins.
