Edwin Mieses, Motorcyclist Run Over By SUV, Had Massachusetts License Revoked

Edwin Mieses, Motorcyclist Run Over By SUV, Had Massachusetts License Revoked

“That's why the biker got hit: he pulled over in front of the SUV and slowed down. Standard practice when you're trying to clear out other motorists so you can enjoy your illegal road rally in peace.

I have no sympathy for any of the bikers. They were breaking the law. And the guy who was run over didn't even have a driver's license - it's suspended until 2017.”

“Um, actually, Olivia, yes they did. They were trying to keep him off the road so they could hold their unauthorized bike rally. He was surrounded and trapped by roughly 60 guys on bikes, with his infant daughter in the car, for no reason. I'd'a run someone over too, to get MY kid out of there.”

“Yes, he hit the motorcyclist who brake-checked him, who was participating in an illegal road rally. If you break the law, and are stupid enough to brake check an SUV while on a motorcycle...”

OliviaDelilah on Oct 5, 2013 at 21:33:47

“Where does it say anything about being "brake-checked"?
If a person follows another vehicle from a safe distance then a sudden stop wouldn't be a problem.”

“Why is anyone else's sexuality any of my business? Asexual, bisexual, homosexual, pansexual - the idea that any of us have anything to say about how anyone else views their own sexuality is appalling.”

“Revolvers do not have safeties, and many semi-autos don't either. My husband's Glock doesn't. Had she carried it safely in a purse holster, however, she would have been much less likely to have issues.”

“If you seriously think that anyone looks at that target and says, Oh, gee, it must be ok to go shoot my ex-wife, and then does it - well you've got worse problems than the rest of us. I've shot many a target that looks like a man- yet oddly enough I have no desire to shoot my husband, even when he's snoring. What lets offenders know it's ok to target women is our judicial system's shocking record on actually PROSECUTING people who commit any kind of violence, let alone violence against women.”

Vajara on May 10, 2013 at 21:13:31

“Why shoot at a human target if you don't wish to kill it? I have learned to shoot at military targets that represent the enemy...come on, the point is, children will believe you are shooting at real beings and learn from these behaviors. Freedom requires Responsibility.”

Terrorist (looks like bin laden)

“Any licensed dealer already has to do that: background checks are required of FFL's regardless of where they sell, and they must transfer firearms to another FFL, who then runs the background check. Private citizens are currently exempt from the requirement to do background checks - but seriously, if someone's posting classified ads to buy a weapon and meeting the seller in a dark alley to do the exchange, exactly how are you going to enforce any kind of regulation? You aren't - but in the meantime you've put a lot of extra burden and expense on the shoulders of law-abiding gun owners.”

agenda21 on Apr 25, 2013 at 20:38:11

“As a gun owner I just wouldn't sell one of my guns to a stranger without going to the gun shop and doing the legal transfer and background check. Yes I do think that all guns sold at gun shows that the buyer should have a background check, it can be done at a licensed dealers table for a small fee. It is already unlawful to receive a gun bought on the Internet directly too. You are right I would not buy a gun from some stranger either.”

“Most states have some form of stand-your-ground law, or castle doctrine. SYG simply states that you are under no duty to retreat if threatened anywhere you are legally allowed to be, and you may use deadly force if threatened. Castle doctrine gives you the right to use deadly force to defend your home. Only 5 states and D.C. do not have some form of either SYG or Castle doctrine.

However - and this is a big however - pursuing someone in order to shoot them is not a justifiable homicide, even if he attacked you or broke in to start with. It goes back to shooting to stop rather than kill - if you broke into my house, I shot you in the shoulder and you decided you'd rather leave, and I then chased you down the driveway and shot you in the back and killed you - I just committed murder. That is the problem with George Zimmerman's attempt to use SYG as a defense in his shooting of Trayvon Martin - did he pursue the young man? Did he instigate whatever altercation took place? If he did...well, it's not justifiable then.”

ron macpherson on Apr 25, 2013 at 14:19:46

“I must live in one of the few states without some sort of Castle or stand-your-ground law. From time to time I've seen reports of law abiding citizens with a legal permit to own a gun arrested for shooting a robber... or accidentally their own child trying to sneak in their OWN homes after curfew. ”
