    Conflicting Supreme Court decisions

    So Rush just postulated a hypothetical situation.

    The Supreme Court just ruled that executing a child rapist is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court also ruled that it IS constitutional to keep and bear arms.

    So he postulates that you come home one day to see a man raping your 8 year old daughter. You take out your gun and shoot him...killing him. Now what?

    I believe they call it a 'make good call'...like in pro sports when the ref gives a bad call, and then makes another call to even it out.

    It's kind of like that...the gov't won't kill 'em for us, but that's why we have guns, right?
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    What does the sentencing of a convicted criminal have to do with an individual's right to self-defense/defense of others? A good shoot is a good shoot...

    That's not the same thing. The Supreme Court ruling was against the Government. Rush's question is about a private party. I understand where he's trying to go but it's not very logical.

    The ruling doesn't do anything to affect self-defense, in the example he gave, the defense of your loved one has the same standard in most 'free' states.

    Action taken to prevent or limit injury during the commission of a crime is much different than punitive action taken months after the crime was committed. Personally though, I think they should fry 'em for raping a child.

    Saying the state can't execute a child rapist (which I disagree with) and defending loved ones is two completely different things. The state can't execute for armed robbery either, but if someone breaks into your house and is armed you can defend your life.

    Probably worse than that, maybe into moronic territory.

    Agreed. Rush is a dimwit.

    Rob72's comment, on the other hand, is BRILLIANT!!

    YUP--But before feeding the hogs you have call 911, go through the motions of rendering assistance, and call your lawyer. Then shut up and go feed the hogs.

    If anyone did that to my kid, the state wouldn't have to worry about punishing them, if I could get to them first.

    They should kill all child molestors IMO.
