Yup xD But I would still run very fast, alongside my wife and behind my kids. Hopefully I'm a better athelete than she is ...

Well then, let's change it up.

What if instead of a lunatic person was running at you saying he was going to kill you, a really big, mean dog was coming at you snarling and growling, showing every indication that he was intending to harm you for whatever reason.

I'm terrified of dogs. My wife gets to fend it off while I scream and turn totally useless.

Here is a little test that will help you decide.
The answer can be found by posing the following question:




> You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children.

> Suddenly, a knife yielding thug yelling threatening words and saying he's going to kill you appears. He's running at you as fast as he can.

> You are carrying a Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP, and you are an expert shot.

> You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.

> What do you do?
.................................................. ........

> THINK CAREFULLY AND THEN SCROLL DOWN:

Democrat's Answer :

> Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!
> Does the man look poor or oppressed?
> Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
> Could we run away?
> What does my wife think?
> What about the kids?
> Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
> What does the law say about this situation?
> Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it?
> Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?
> Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
> Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?
> If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
> Should I call 9-1-1?
> Why is this street so deserted?
> We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
> This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for few days and try to come to a consensus.
.................................................. ..............................


Republican's Answer:

> BANG!
.................................................. ..............................


Redneck's Answer:

> BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
> Click..... (Sounds of reloading)
> BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Click

> Daughter: 'Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver tips or hollow points?! '

> Son: 'Can I shoot the next one?!'

> Wife: 'You ain't taking that to the taxidermist!
I would shoot him in the foot knowing that he would get free healthcare.

enjoy the law sue that SOB will throw at you.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Well, still. It does specify that "you" are an expert shot, so where is only a matter of choice. Oh sorry, if you take that route.

Reminds me of last weeks episode of Boston Legal.

Denny and Jerry are walking through a parking garage, when a gun-wielding man jumps out with a gun and demands their wallets and watches or he would shoot them. Denny hands over his wallet and his watch, then pulls a gun of his own and shoots the man in both knees and a foot. "Self defense." Great show.

Personally I think I am a redneck republican. I dont care that your daddy drank and your momma did drugs and you grew up on the wrong side of the tracks and life is not fair. As adults, there are ALWAYS choices, and you dont have to chose to be a thug loser with no job. And you can chose to be a victim....or you can chose NOT to be a victim.

Um, if my housemate, V, who is half a foot taller than me and weighs twice as much, decided to beat me up, I don't think I'd have much of a choice about being a victim. He can run faster than me, he is stronger than me, he could squash me, he knows a martial art ... I could knee him in the groin, pull his hair, or possibly hit him with a dressage whip. xD

So I'd probably just stick V in between me and the rabid dog/rabid human and let him sort it out!

If it was a rapid dog I would shoot it, to keep it from spendingthat disease

If it was a rapid dog I probably wouldn't be able to outrun it.
