Great stuff, and Mr. Pincus represented the community quite well! Reply Also listening now (only 6 minutes in)… “You don’t want to extrapolate from any one incident”. +google-plex Reply Crap. As a math-oriented person, I should be able to spell “googolplex”. Reply Google has ruined googol. I had to look it up a few days ago. Reply I just listened to that part. That was the guy who first said he would have shot the guy then told us the gun was not loaded. Reply im not so sure i believe the karate story. but lets just assume it is true. its a great story. Reply The only purpose of martial arts is to hurt people; they should be banned. Think of the CHILDREN! Why doesn’t anyone care about THE CHILDREN? ROFLMAO. Reply Yeah, and the “clicking” noise because the safety was on? I don’t have any guns that do that. You just cant pull the trigger its pretty silent. I call BS on that first caller. I also have my doubts about his claim that he uses an “assault rifle” for home defense. An MSR maybe, but what real gun owner calls their AR-15 or whatever an “assault rifle.” and if it really was a real assault rifle. That’s some serious(expensive) hardware for not being able to move out of the bad part of town. Reply The antagonist was probably tweaking his balls off. If there’s any play in the trigger, it’ll click if you try hard enough. Reply Even if some parts of the “assault rifle” story were cringeworthy, and others embellished, I count it as a win because only gun folk would notice any of that. Think about it: this guy called into NPR with a legit-sounding DGU involving an “assault rifle” and he was treated with respect and thanked for sharing. That’s a serious fracking win right there! It’s certainly an interesting story but it’s bugging me that he’s saying “assault rifle” and then talks about “warning shots”. Reply Yeah. To me, he fits into the mold of someone who doesn’t “get” what defensive gun use means. Warning shots are definitely NOT part of the procedure. Reply A good 30 minute listen! Rob made a fine representation. Reply Ugh. Another embed that doesn’t work on iOS. I was really hoping to listen to this on the way home. Anyone know if there’s an NPR app that would let me stream this while I drive? EDIT: Never mind — there IS an actual NPR app, and it has a working search function, and I will be able to listen to this on the drive home. Win. Reply We need more Rob Pincuses in the world and speaking for the NRA. Reply So Faux News is against guns (because Murdick is) and NPR is not??? Amazing. Reply I appreciate the support! Here are my Thoughts on why it is important to “Cross the Lines” to do shows like this: http://www.icetraining.info/nprs-talk-of-the-nation-produces-a-very-fair-show-on-defensive-firearms-use/ -RJP Reply I thought you did a great job of delivering a consistent, authentic message, Rob. I really liked that you emphasized how responsible use of force differentiates “can” from “should” as that’s sometimes lost in these discussions. I hadn’t realized you are based in Bexley — my sister and her family live there. Small world. Reply Awesome Rob! Looking good on NPR like that you will reach a lot of thoughtful people who may not know much about guns and give them a view of reality in this debate. Excellent!
