    Some people value life equally?

    Don't get me wrong, I eat meat, etc, but I still value an animal life at more or less the same level as a human life.

    I think you have to draw the line somewhere. For me the line is lower than it is for some; others, like what's-his-name who was posting before, have a very high line

    You don't count animals in a death count when people are present, its disrespectful. I won't even get into an argument about this, because idiots will remain idiots no matter what they are told.
    We're you beaten with an animal by your parents at a young age, seems to be your personal vendetta to belittle animals.

    I highly doubt it was a handgun. 165 yards with a rifle is a fairly long shot. With handguns, anything beyond 50 and you shouldn't even bother.

    bugs and insects do not have a brain, they run on a nervous system, one that tells them what patterns to act in and how to behave to certain things. They don't actually feel pain, nor do they have a consciousness.

    We thought plants didn't communicate with each other until a few months ago when that study showed super quiet noises and bursts of pheromones being transmitted between cabbages that were being 'attacked' by slugs

    no it's not. From what I can tell it was a .357 Magnum revolver. 165 yards at a man-sized target is an easy shot with any gun. It starts getting hard with handguns at around 150 yards, and magnum handguns at closer to 190. With rifles, 400 is generally where it starts to get hard to hit with an intermediate cartridge like 5.56x45, 800 with high power cartridges like .270 Winchester, and 1500 with a purpose-built cartridge like .338 Lapua.

    Video games tend to understate a weapon's effective range by a considerable amount for balancing purposes.

    Are you fucking kidding?

    it is NOT easy to hit a target accurately at 165 yards with a pistol. Not to mention under duress and shooting at what is probably a mobile target.

    Please post a video of your operator self oh so easily pegging targets at 190 yards with a fucking revolver.

    I'll get that set up later. I'll be running a good old .38 Spl too (it's the only revolver I've got, everything else is semi-auto), so I won't have the advantage the guy had with his magnum cartridges.

    uhhh

    It's a difficult shot, yes, but not impossible for a skilled enough shooter. Especially if he was using a supported position.

    Edited:

    Why the fuck would you doubt he used a handgun, anyway? He said himself that he was using one.

    Not hard to comprehend, hard to justify why one would put human death and animal death on the same level.
    Because they are seemingly conscious beings (depending on how arrogantly you define consciousness) which suffered probably horribly as they died, in confusion and want of their safety and the safety of the family they were a part of. Dogs are socially intelligent, highly protective animals and I don't doubt the last moments of a dying, wounded dog are terrifying and cold, just like they often are for a human.

    They are victims. Get of your pedastle, homo sapien. You're just an animal like the rest of us.

    Typical gun control advocate posters never showed up
    There's nothing within this article they could use as points for their case.

    While something like this may be one-in-a-septillion or whatever, if they tried to argue for it, instead of the "debate" (read: shit flinging contest) you usually get, they'd get enough dumb ratings each to fill Lake Michigan and a ton of "dude no fuck you for bringing that up". And they seem to be smart enough not to bother.

    We still don't know if the criminal got his weapon at a gun shop after filing a 4473 and going through the background check, or just bought it from another bad guy off the street, thus evading any eventual form of gun control.

    So shut up until this information is revealed.

    Actually the cases of lawful use outweight the crimes 5 to 1, and that's only counting civilians, not cops.

    He owned multiple guns so I'm guessing its the former

    Not that it matters
