I was not born or raised prejudiced but I'll make an exception for them. They are living best-reasons for gun control I've seen yet; not only because they tend to start fights whenever anyone takes umbrage with their savage behvaior, then tend to get their ass whupped, then tend to come back with a gun, but also because if I had a gun on my person I would tend to save everyone the trouble and shoot them as soon as they started to act up. I haven't met a single one yet that was not a once or future inmate and I don't need a Pre-Cog to tell me what a sensible course of action would be. Motherfuck habeus corpus.
This is kind of on the flip side but I'm tired of people not seeming to understand that whatever your outlook is on the "societal hierarchy" it doesn't apply when you're in the wrong part of town, on the wrong night, in the wrong bar "flirting with danger" for shits and giggles.
When you're young you want to do things that are sketchy and I can understand that, we've all been there. But holy shit if you're gonna try to "drink with the savages" then understand they don't give a fuck who you are at work, who your dad is or how much money you make. The whole "modern Roman" attitude of thinking what flies in your social circle, and the "laws" of it, are the be all end all of social behavior is a good way to get fucked up.
I recently started doing bar and club events with a friend and it's astounding how many townie kids will walk into a rough spot and think that a biker, or some huge Samoan gives a shit about who they are. Then you're helping carry them out to their car and they're telling you, through a broken nose, that they didn't start it. Well, guess what nose job, using the word "motherfucker" ten times in a row never made a guy want to punch you in the face less, ever, in the history of humanity.
More people should read Peyton Quinn's work or just go to bars where some pussy they know will sit there and take a brow beating and not...you know, beat their brow like they owed the guy money.
And in the same vein, club "security" that doesn't know what de-escalation means.
And I'm all for shooting douche bags. Go gun control!
