Suzy Sock Puppet BS: Do we need stricter gun laws? (125* d) RE: BS: Do we need stricter gun laws? 09 Sep 13

Yup Little Hawk. Busybodies and control freaks. There's always a way around everything but not if people insist that others, especially those who may be impaired in some way or otherwise at a disadvantage, do what they say when they say it. That's the mentality of people who beat children, elderly people or the handicapped when they assert their wills.

I suppose the world would have come to an end if the poor old guy had been allowed to stay in his room and the decision to force him to leave had been deterred to a later time after the situation had deescalated. 107 years old and those people couldn't cut him slack? Police had no choice? Bullshit. There were a lot of choices here. No Plan B?

Calling the police in to handle a situation with a friend or relative is who obviously in a state of mental and emotional distress is surely one of the most ignorant, heartless things one could do. It's nothing I would have ever done. I would have let him win the standoff. Then I would have remained vigilant for an opportunity to get the gun in the near future. Don't know if I could have pulled off this course of action but I would have tried.
