Ted Kennedy's Worst Nightmare (cont.)

An armed citizen stops a rampaging, knife-wielding nutbag dead in his tracks, without firing a single shot.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -— A knife-wielding grocery store employee attacked eight co-workers Friday, seriously injuring five before a witness pulled a gun and stopped him, police said.

I blame Tennessee's lax cutlery laws.

The attacker, chasing one victim into the store's parking lot, was subdued by Chris Cope, manager of a financial services office in the same small shopping center, Higgins said.

Cope said he grabbed a 9mm semiautomatic pistol from his pickup truck when he saw the attacker chasing the victim "like something in a serial killer movie."

"When he turned around and saw my pistol, he threw the knife away, put his hands up and got on the ground," Cope told The Associated Press. "He saw my gun and that was pretty much it."

A mere commoner? With a gun? Saving lives? Dianne Feinstein fucking hates when that happens!

Now, I've re-read the article several times, and simply can't believe that no innocent children were gunned down by this gun-toting hillbilly. How can that be? Everyone knows guns have just one purpose in life - to kill as many people, in as efficient a manner, as possible.

Of course, Kennedy, Feinstein, and the rest of the Oblivious Dipshit Coalition would have preferred to have everyone involved in this incident just "give the guy what he wants". It matters little [read: not one fucking bit] to these elitist, gasbag politicians that the "what he wanted" was, in fact, to attack everyone in sight with a couple large kitchen knives.

The ceding of one's personal sovereignty to an armed lunatic is just the price they expect us to pay, with a smile, in order to bring their gun-free, Utopian land of gumdrops and butterflies to fruition.

"Common sense", to these loathsome assnuggets, means being forced to rely on the "kindness" and "mercy" of a knife-wielding fruitcake for one's safety and well-being.

It's FOR THE CHILDRENTM. Surely, you understand.

And, of course, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Ownership had to give Tennessee a D+ (no, I won't link to it) on last year's "report card", on account of their redneck gun laws that made this happy ending possible.

Useless fools.
