We support a huge infrastructure of police whom are trained to handle situations like this so people don't get killed.

It's one thing if someone's in your house, but, to go out looking for trouble with a gun is always a bad idea.

Yes, right before he lets the Arctic police cart him off in chains ;)

Unlike Lester's movie, Donner's flick isn't in my continuity. :P

Is that how it works?

There isn't a my continuity or a your continuity, just continuity.

And in continuity kryptonians can't multiply themselves, make cheesy looking cellophane nets out of his S symbol, or use telekinesis.

Fortunately not even in your dream world does Superman kill Zod.

State Senator Barrack Obama in 2004 co-sponsored a law that, (like the Stand Your Ground law in Florida), shields people who legally use lethal force in self defense from civil liability. :lol:

The other ironic thing is that you pretty much can't own a gun in Illinois, and couldn't at all in Chicago back then. So what they'd be defending themselves with I don't know.

Oh, snap! Once again Martin's followers fail at logic and reason.


I guess I'm just annoyed that Zimmerman's branded a racist, people are rioting, The media has NOTHING else to talk about, etc. but Scott, under very similar circumstances (I think he was on thinner ice than Zimmerman, to be honest) doesn't have his life destroyed, he's not called a racist for shooting a kid of a different race, celebrities & politicians never involved themselves, the media never blew things out of proportion, etc.

Are you being hyperbolic for effect or are you actually claiming you couldn't own a gun in 2004 in Chicago?

I remember it, but there's not really much similarity and public perceptions have changed a lot since then.

Didn't Bernie Goetz get AIDS from hyperdermic needles on the shore while he on crack?

A handgun. Effectively. Chicago until a Supreme Court decision in 2010 did not allow handgun possession of guns bought and registered after 1982, when a city-wide handgun ban went into effect. McDonald v. Chicago forced them to allow such ownership. though they're still making it as hard as humanly possible.

Because of his later work in squirrel rescue? I agree.
