Quote of the Day: Asking for Trouble Edition by Robert Farago | Mar 23, 2015 | 17 comments facebook twitter linkedin email “Anybody that doesn’t arm themselves is asking for trouble.” – Doug Janebeur in Army veteran, 84, fends off a robber by whipping out his handgun [via dailymail.co.uk] comments defensor fortismo says: March 23, 2015 at 08:09 Considering it’s a British paper, I’m surprised a lot more of the comments accompanying it weren’t along the lines of “those crazy yanks”. The fact that everyone is being reasonable about it is refreshing. Reply JJVP says: March 23, 2015 at 08:33 All the comments, except one were from people in the U.S.A. Reply Excedrine says: March 23, 2015 at 10:23 And even that one comment from the U.K. was fully supportive of Doug’s actions. “Pensioners”, as they’re called there, are some of the most vulnerable people in any society. Reply arsh says: March 23, 2015 at 08:35 Most of the comments say they are from the US. I only counted one from the UK. Although not suprising that it’s mostly US. Between the Communist News Network (CNN) and Faux News the only real options for any real information is outside sources. And no MSN hasn’t been a network that counts since MSN was used as a messenger.

Reply Tom in Oregon says: March 23, 2015 at 08:12 Good restraint on his part. Though he probably could have put the mongrel down after taking the punch. Especially with his wife in the car. Reply James69 says: March 23, 2015 at 08:16 Scumbag… glad to see the Vet was not more seriously injured. When in doubt, whip it out! Too bad he was not more alert, you could see this “thug” coming a mile away. Reply Paul says: March 23, 2015 at 08:29 The Daily Mail? Please tell me you know that is possible the worst “newspaper” in th UK.

Reply Gregolas says: March 23, 2015 at 08:34 Thank you for your continuing service to our country Sir. Salute! Reply JJVP says: March 23, 2015 at 08:35 “However he is thankful to have had his gun, and that his business is situated in a gun zone.” Gun Zone? Is that like, not in a “Gun Free Zone”? Reply Bob says: March 23, 2015 at 08:37 True words. Not having a gun available is like not having a fire extinguisher in the house. You may never need either, but if you do, that’s what you need as nothing else can fix the problem as well. Reply James says: March 23, 2015 at 08:37 Simply stated and couldn’t be more correct in today’s day and age. From anti-Semitism unrivaled since the 1930’s, media and government driven racial division campaigns, lone wolf terrorists, totalitarian gun grabbers calling for violence, and our “as long as you feel good about yourself” esteem society, we maybe and are likely in for some dark times. Reply David Stadler says: March 23, 2015 at 09:24 I carry and tend to agree, but on the other hand, given our convoluted legal system, the anti- gun nuts, and growing reverse racism, you can be asking for trouble if you do carry and use.

Keep calm and carry on. 😉 Reply LarryinTX says: March 23, 2015 at 15:47 How is that poor boy going to turn his life around if someone threatens to shoot him every time he takes on a paying job? Reply Former Water Walker says: March 23, 2015 at 16:59 I saw the POS coldcock gramps on the TV. My new hero-wish he had shot homie… Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
