    Airman shot by anti-war/anti-gov't nutjob

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/uc/20070711/...mmax/op_193253

    Hmmm....haven't seen any of this in the "established press"

    A young Air Force airman is fighting for his life in Camden, N.J. He was shot on Independence Day by a crazed gunman who reportedly had a beef with the military and the U.S. government and "wanted to make a statement" on the Fourth of July. Have you heard about the plight of 22-year-old McGuire Air Force Base loadmaster Jonathan Schrieken? Probably not.

    My son's best friend, Jon, who's in the Air Force stationed in New Jersey at Fort Dix/McGuire Air Force Base, was shot by a crazed anti-military white guy on Independence Day and he remains in critical condition. He had been on leave here in Ohio and got back to his home off base and was unpacking stuff from his car when this 22-year-old guy walked up to him and asked him if he lived in the house. When Jon said yes, the guy said 'not any more' and shot him point-blank in the chest. He tried to shoot him again, but his gun jammed. Jonathan made it into the house. The guy then shot himself.

    "Turns out the guy left a couple of suicide notes stating how much he hated the military and he wanted to go out making a statement, so he chose to make his statement on Independence Day trying to kill a soldier. We are very worried about our Airman . . . he's like a son to me. He's been to Iraq and Afghanistan on our behalf and then gets shot in his own driveway here in the U.S. by an anti-war, anti-American lunatic. This is gut wrenching

    Absolutely insane. How did this nutjob get a gun in NJ?? How's that Utopia working for y'all?

    The felon wanted to make a statement against the gov't, but shoots a serviceman to do it? Should have hunted down his own senator, or someone from the World Bank, if that was his beef. Instead, he opts to take out someone servicing his country with courage and devotion? That's a broken synapse. Or, it was.

    I am no longer surprised by the horrors with which some humans will debase themselves and their family names, the depths to which some are willing to go in order to make some point to their pointless and petty lives, and the crimes some are willing to commit in the name of their own callous disregard for all that good and decent.

    That' a case of doo-doo rolling downhill, I guess. We kick the dog when we should be kicking the boss. Poor S.O.B. didn't deserve it.

    Ballistic vests are starting to look like a good idea for EDC.

    I have one and I have been known to wear it from time to time if I have to go someplace that seems less than safe.

    As soon as they get the ballistic material to where they can make shirts out of it there will be no reason at all not to wear one just about all the time.

    I hope someone is working on that.

    No, that's exactly what we don't need.

    We are one assassin's bullet away from total forfeiture of our RKBA.

    A political assassination now would just about guarantee the passage of the most restrictive gun laws we've ever seen. The hue and cry would be deafening, and the NRA would be powerless to stop it.

    Remember, the JFK/MLK/RFK assassinations gave us GCA 68.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Why? If you don't want to read on it, don't click it.

    FYI--Even the base newspaper neglected to mention this story.
