http://www.upforanything.net/poker/ gives us the link to

http://thetrooper97.blogspot.com/  which tells us the story of a crime. The high

jacking of a poker game.

The author tells us his feelings of “during the event” and his thoughts of gun ownership.

I support his basic feelings.

But I have a problem with them.

It goes this way.

You’re armed.  You’re performing an illegal activity – like being at an underground poker game.

The game is robbed; like this one.

You pull your legal gun at the illegal activity.  You shoot.  You hit what you shot at.

The target dies.

Now:  I’ll say it again.  You have a legal firearm at an illegal activity.  That makes you a perp. You used a firearm in the commission of an illegal activity. 

Question:  How long are you going to spend in jail?  Twelve Years?  That is about how long it takes for capital cases to result in execution.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
