It just shows that the law abiding citizen can't be trusted with guns either

Our society is not mentally stable enough to have guns. You don't give a 3 year old a saw or knife... Same goes here. Until our society can show they actually value human life and aren't out to prove some point, we shouldn't be armed as such. Too many people just don't have the mentality needed to be able to use such a weapon properly.

Don't discharge your weapon in a public space full of people. He could have accidentally shot other people.

Generalize often?

I am not a gun owner, but there are millions of law abiding citizens worldwide who do own guns. Upwards of 80 million just in the USA, actually.

Such generalization you often hear in the USA media toward other countries in the world.

So what's wrong about that? US generalize other countries, and other countries generalize US.

And everyone is wrong together and nothing improves.

This is why I don't trust gun owners. Interfering busybodies that think owning a gun gives them the right to poke their noses into matters that don't concern them. Let's just be thankful that this moron didn't kill anyone.

Case of some idiot thinking he has the right or authority to be a vigilante when he clearly does not. He should have been arrested and should be prosecuted no doubt.


Exactly.

If I am shopping in my local ASDA and someone is thieving, I don't care they're not thieving off me, the stores goods, the stores security should deal withy them.

It's the same in any situation, if you see someone thieving tell security then move one, don't be a hero.

That's part of my point.

When US generalizes people from other countries it's OK. But when people from other countries generalize US it's not OK.

Things go both ways in reality.

Of course it's a generalization, but here on Neowin we always get to hear that it's the criminals we have to watch out for, not our Law abiding citizens.
All the latest reports just show that lots of people can't handle their guns properly. That doesn't mean you need a ban on weapons but maybe it's time to make it mandatory people follow some kind of class before they are allowed to apply for a gun.

That guy should get his gun taken away and bared from owing another one. 5 shots for a shop lifter? Really? Take down his damn license plate number and give that to police.

The fact that he wanted to mark the car with a bullet proves this guy is a ****ing moron and shouldnt be owning a firearm.

This is why I don't trust gun owners. Interfering busybodies that think owning a gun gives them the right to poke their noses into matters that don't concern them. Let's just be thankful that this moron didn't kill anyone.


Not all gun owners are like that. Apparently, according to the OP, others had weapons on them and didnt fire or draw their weapon. This moron just had an itchy trigger finger and wanted to shoot something.

He's lucky a cop didn't pull up when he was shooting -- he would have probably been shot to death.

When I read about similar situations that had turned out better I always say the person with the gun should get in trouble for this very reason. You can't have vigilantes everywhere with guns because soon or later they are going to kill someone. Cops are trained and and know when to fire their gun where as this guy has no clue.

^ Yeah -- we all know that Cops never mistakenly kill someone.
