Feckless Political definition cliches aside, y'all get the gist:

A Washington DC area, Pro-Obamba Citizen Disarmament advocate & pawn shop owner fends off a robber who stabbed him in the throat, by reaching for his handgun.

Gun Control Supporter Embraced by Gun Rights Supporters After Pulling Weapon in Self-Defense

Pawn shop owner stabbed repeatedly last month

A Woodbridge pawn shop manager talks exclusively to News4 Northern Virginia Bureau Chief Julie Carey about the attack on his life. CLICK HERE to go to the website to make donations to help the shop owner pay his medical bills.

Bob Jalali is an unlikely figure to be embraced by gun rights supporters. He says he favors President Obama's proposed gun control measures and although he once sold guns at a Prince William County pawn shop, he gave up the license because he didn't like being associated with the weapons.

But on March 7, when a customer at Pawn City in Woodbridge, Va., suddenly began stabbing him, Jalali saved his life by reaching for a handgun.

"I grabbed the gun," Jalali said. "When he saw the gun, he backed up and he started to run. I could have killed him at that time, when he was coming, but I couldn't. I said, ‘I can't take someone’s life.’"

===============================================================

Well, but suppose even a near death experience can't cure cognitive dissonance:

"In this case it did help me, the gun," he said...The incident hasn't changed his views on gun control, he said. While he has a gun at work, he does not have one at home...Even if I lose my life, I have to think a gun belongs in the hands of police, not regular citizens.”

Lucky for Bob Jalali, his son, Arash, is a bit wiser, but Bob's hypocrisy typical of ALL gungrabbers remain:

Jalali said the attack on him has influenced his son, who now questions some gun control proposals. Jalali also admits he will continue to have a gun at work.

The Armed Intelligentsia praise the anti-gunner for exercising his Pre-Constitution Universal Natural Right of Self-Defense.

His fellow rabid Hoplophobes?

Predictably silent.

On a related note, sure, 'No one needs an AR15!"...er... until you're actually attacked by a scumbag invading your house along with his merry band of armed degenerates, WITH an AR15, in Gabby Gifford's hometown of Tucson, AZ:

Think the victimized homeowner blamed the inanimate AR15 in the invader's hands? Think he'll also blame his own AR15 he deployed, to fend off the AR wielding thug?

Oh dang, why do I bother asking that, here at DP? Ya informed R3VOL bunch, you! LOL Never mind, just being rhetorical. Y'all are no fun.o)

wow, this single unfortunate incident exposes EVERYTHING

that is wrong with the current state, of the corporatist, statist, fascist America, and its sheeple denizens that litter it.

1. Cognitive Dissonance on the entire notion of individual self-defense, and the 2nd Amendment

2. Perception of an inanimate tool becoming a cultural anthropological social symbol

3. Fear of inanimate objects

4. Hypocrisy of 'Gun for me, Not for thee' all the while simultaneously professing he himself shouldn't own or use one!

5. Moral superiority vs. a segment of population they don't understand

6. Moral superiority & almost a glee in placing irrational BLIND FAITH in the hands of the Authoritarian Technocracy and its agents

7. And...the disastrous nature of corporatist 'medicine'

According to Bob Jalali's son Arash who set up a medical fundraiser page for his father, the hospital just charged Bob with a hefty mortgage breaking $70,000 bill (he has no insurance) to tend to his neck wounds!

8. And...proving once again, that you can't fix stupid, nor legislate crazy, away.

Here's what the assailant told the detectives why he attacked the pawnshop owner:

The Detectives said when they asked the suspect why he did what he did he said "Because when I woke up today I had a feeling that I had to KILL SOMEONE TODAY".

It's just another example of the microcosm of this crazy world we're treading through. Yikes.

"In this case it did help me,

"In this case it did help me, the gun," he said...The incident hasn't changed his views on gun control, he said. While he has a gun at work, he does not have one at home...Even if I lose my life, I have to think a gun belongs in the hands of police, not regular citizens.”

One of the most idiotic statements I have read. He keeps a gun at his private business, which, is an extention of his home. Doh. If he feels that only police should handle guns, then why did he have a gun in his possession? Is he a part time cop? The sheer stupidity of his hypocrisy is astounding.

yup,

beyond the Constitutionality, 'how many bullets do you NEED? you don't NEED an AR! you're NOT gonna fend off Tyranny when we have drones!'-blah blah blah, one core reality missing?

A real 'sensible adult conversation' on the factual nature of armed encounters.

1. ALL attacks are ambushes, when you're the good guy minding your own business, and someone decides to assault you

2. MOST attacks involve more than one assailants

3. NO ONE is gonna be flying back 50yds from being hit by a round of .22LR, or .380ACP shot out of James Bond's Walther PPK

4. ONLY in TV/films does the bad guy die with a single shot, all the time

5. The number of ammo it takes to stop a threat can range from ZERO (lawful brandishing to PREVENT the situation from even escalating, sometimes), to one good shot placement, to 25rd+/-. There have been documented case of an assailant who was not on ANY narcotics, or even alcohol, who were shot 14+ times with .40S&W and still continued to attack.

6. Just because the assailant is shot does not mean he cannot swing his knife or pull the trigger on his weapon, sometimes even when shot in the head, or the heart, even as he is bleeding out to death.

7. You WANT Jacketed Hollow Points for your defensive ammo because you don't want the bullets penetrating innocent bystanders.

8. You have no idea how you would respond to a real deadly threat, unless you've been in one. Even if you're LE or Mil, no amount of training will guarantee how you'll respond when you're engaged in real life and death combat, but great training sure increases your survivability.

9. NO trained gunowner deludes simply having a gun will guarantee you'll beat the badguy, but it means guaranteeing a CHANCE to defeat the assailant. Without arms, your chance falls way low to nil. At least with a gun, you have a 50:50 chance of survival, guaranteed.

10. YOU will not be able to disarm an armed bad guy whether in or outside of physical striking distance by pulling a Jason Bourne or Steven Seagal, all the time. Most Krav Maga and MMA disarmament techniques are just that, techniques. And, like all techniques, they're only useful, if you've mastered it, and can deploy it during real-life dynamic stress situations. It's just another defensive tool, just like a gun. But without a skilled operator it's as useless.

But, bad guys don't give a shiite about how well you've mastered your KravMaga disarm techniques, your fighting stance, honor, or rules. There are no Ki's, no belts, no 2min round and a bell in the real world. There are no reset buttons, and you get tired, get hyper vigilant, experience tachypsychia, and run out of breath and fatigue out before you'd ever tap-out, quick.

11. MOST gungrabbing liberals/RINOs have NO clue about guns, nor ever been in a real fight, let alone kindergarten slap-fests. Not only that, rarely have ANY gungrabber ever even bothered to research existing documented cases of deadly encounters enough to at least even intellectually attempt to understand what others throughout history have experienced and survived, or not, under similar circumstances. Yet, they presume to know everything and dictate what you can or cannot have or how you'd use a tool to properly defend yourself.

The problem isn't even the 'mechanical' arguments for or against guns. 99% of govt hacks and policy wonks have ZERO understanding of real-life defensive situations. Thus all the arguments are pushpoll data, manipulation of stats, moronic misnomers, idiotic fictitious terms, non sequiturs, Constitution/NaturalRights imbecilic historically amnesic arguments, and base appeal to childish emotional need to satiate innate insecurities.

This also applies to many gunnies.

Most arguments aren't based on the actual reality of armed encounters. It's rarely about the gun as a tool, and what task that said tool is designed to accomplish efficiently.

That, IMO, is the single most important aspect of defensive gun use, not publicly discussed, beyond the tactical course classrooms.

That, is the real discussion about the gun being a tool. Tools are designed to solve problems with efficiency and raise productivity. So shouldn't we discuss more about what that 'problem solving' is??

Sure discussing bleeding out, severing arteries, targeting ocular cavity is crass, but ask ANY cop or servicemen why they 'need' so much ammo, they'll tell you: 'people don't die that easily when shot with 0.22~0.50 inch diameter projectiles.' And how does one ensure you can stop a lethal threat, threatening you and your loved ones? By increasing your odds of puncturing more holes in the right places. THAT is why you NEED more than 10rds.

Sure, it's unpalatable for sheeple morons, but unless such saving-life defensive realities of actual dynamic lethal encounters are discussed, even the armed intelligentsia will continue to dicker over moronic terms and fake stats, moronic statist pseudo-'Constitutional' arguments thrown at us, and be forced to defend the indefensible nonsense on THEIR terms.

Also these morons have no concept of reality: ammo is to guns, what gasoline is to cars. And you always run out of them. Also as a perishable skill, unless you train and practice, practice, practice, you'll lose your skills. Ask anyone serious about self-defense, how quickly one goes through a thousand rounds. And these morons call stored gasoline to fuel your car, "an arsenal."

The thing that always bemuses me the most, though? Everytime a gungrabber says 'why do you NEED such an efficient killing machine like an AR?'

I always rebut, 'so WHEN someone is trying to MURDER you, you mean you actually WANT your gun to jam??' What a F'ng moronic thing to say!

It's like why the hell WOULDN'T I want a superior efficient weapon platform to lawfully, morally, ethically defend my life and of my loved ones?
