Maybe they just didn’t hit him hard enough, then?
Still to be determined:
- Whether people did, indeed, fight back.
- Whether any of the victims were shot by people fighting back.
I’m going to catch a lot of flak for this. But I am just trying to add a little necessary levity here.
This is what I imagined how Geraldo believed his little scenario would have played out.
“Screw you; I’m workin’ for Mel Brooks!”
Anyone seen JCVD? That was a nice take on the difference.
Or better yet…
To hope Geraldo has a chance to test his own advice would be horrible. Not because violence is never right, but because it would mean putting other peoples lives in danger. I hope Geraldo steps on a rusty lego.
Once again I find myself searching YouTube for the My Name is Earl clip of Earl shouting “Hey Gerardo! Fuck you!” and once again I am disappointed. Somebody needs to get on that.
Rambo Von Rivera ?
“The best steersmen stand ashore.” - Dutch proverb
Come to think of it, it seems pretty likely that this fuckstick is simply trying to dog-whistle that gay folks are pussies.
Which is obviously arse-backwards, if you consider it for a moment: sex with women, not to mention conformity, is the soft option.
It’s funny that Geraldo is literally wearing rose-colored glasses…
Remember when Geraldo fought back against Dave Schultz, the 6’6"wrestler he pissed off? Right, cause he didn’t. He just got the shit kicked outta him. And good old Dave had no gun. Hypocrisy for breakfast anyone?
I think that was John Stossel who had the piss slapped out of him by Dr. D.
Enlist already, if it’s that important. Or is the “we’ve got to stop them” part just for other people?
Oh yes, fight back, you know, next latin dance night at a gay club all of them should be armed, while dancing, so next bad guy that enters the place armed should be shooted by dozens of guys in a crowded, dark… you are telling me the NRA have not said that already?
I think Geraldo imagines it works something like 0:50 in this clip:
That is not true. A typical magazine for one of those carries 30 rounds. Things are bad enough without giving gun nuts ammunition to discount reasonable calls for gun control
He probably wasn’t using one; but it’s entirely true that a ‘high capacity’ magazine can be good for 100 rounds. The ‘c’ in ‘C-mag’ stands for ‘century’ for that reason.
Comparatively rare and fiddly vs. the more typical smaller ones; but hardly fictional.
If I recall correctly, that’s a polite, technical way of saying they’re designed to start tumbling and ripping up everything inside your body, instead of making a relatively clean hole through you.
It’s just too easy sometimes to use sterile, analytical terminology like this when the reality is so horrible.
(The company my father used to work for made 105 mm shells and other toys of the military-industrial complex, and he would tell me stuff like that when I was a lad…)
