The Alabama Bunker Dude killed a dog with a pipe and owns an assault rifle

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/02/01/alabama-standoff-enters-third-day-as-official-says-child-held-hostage-in-bunker/

<snip>

Dykes was known in the neighborhood as a menacing figure who neighbors said once beat a dog to death with a lead pipe, threatened to shoot children for setting foot on his property and patrolled his yard at night with a flashlight and an assault rifle.

Arrington confirmed that Dykes held anti-government views, as described by multiple neighbors: "He's against the government -- starting with Obama on down."

"He doesn't like law enforcement or the government telling him what to do," the police chief said. "He's just a loner."

This country loves its assault rifles more than it does its children.

Ban 'em

1. Beat a dog to death with a lead pipe,

allowed to own an assault weapon and roam the streets. I am so frightened for that poor child.

2. I'm probably going to make some people unhappy here. This seams like one of those times....

where guns weren't the most important factor. CRAZY was the most important factor!
What in gods name kind of bad fireworks went off in this person's head that caused him to do this.
What in hell was wrong with his friends, coworkers, neighbors that allowed this loon to have so much as a butter knife, let alone a gun.
The police who showed up about the dog killing. Where were their brains. This is not the action of a person in their right mind.
What is worse is that this person has a history of bad acting.
He is what should have been baned, or at least placed in a padded cage.

3. Yeah, because it would be acceptable behavior if his rifle didn't have a pistol grip n/t

12. Military-styled assault rifles are all the rage with the Red Dawn anti-gummint types

that beat dogs to death and hold kids hostage in their Rambo Bunker.

yup

13. And are used to kill maybe 200 people year.

So you want them banned, not because they are a threat, but because you don't like the kind of people that buy them.


Of course, the more you fight against them, the more the Red Dawn anti-govmint types want them and mobilize against you.

So admit that you are hoping and planning and trying to use the slippery slope.

6. Exactly where do they get lead pipe from these days?

 

Seriously, is it still manufactured?

9. of course not ...

hasn't been popular since 1900 or so. But it's not as dramatic to say he beat a dog to death with an iron pipe (or was it really just PVC?).

Doesn't reflect well on the news source ... ah, wait, Foxnews. Nevermind.

23. "Lead pipe" is the plumbing equivalent of an AR 15.

10. Wonder if the same hyperbole was used in describing his firearm

Because rifle, gun or weapon doesnt give that same frisson as Assault Rifle.

17. While I don't own an assault rifle I do own a AR and haven't beat any dogs to death.



You would be proud of me though, I did trade one of my death spewers ( the 9c) off for a dirtbike today.

22. Maybe and maybe not.

The Alabama Bunker Dude killed a dog with a pipe and owns an assault rifle


Parrish described the weapon as an assault rifle, while another neighbor said it was a shotgun; authorities have not disclosed what firearms Dykes might have in his possession.

24. If he does not have an MSDS sheet for that lead pipe, he could be in trouble

You have not seen trouble until the EPA comes in to shut Dykes' bunker down.
