    So you're praying for God to drown all Muslims? You do know that would be a mass murder of epic proportions, and no guns to blame.

    Maybe you'd like to enlighten us with your vast examples of statistical importance. You do have quantities of statistical evidence, don't you? I'm not talking about onesie twosies grade school style.

    You should know more about mass murder of epic proportions better than anyone in that you propose nuking countries that attack us conventionally. Oh well, it's just collateral damage.

    What a stupid post... Not sure why I'm replying...

    I don't pray to your sky spirit, who "inspired" the book, that teaches that slavery is ok...
    See, it's OK with the God of Abraham if you slowly beat your slaves to death. After all, they are your money.
    Just make sure that they survive at least a day or two after the beating. But try not to knock out their teeth or eyes. Otherwise you may have to set them free.

    Exodus 21:20-21 King James Version (KJV)
    20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished.
    21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.

    Exodus 21:26-27 King James Version (KJV)
    26 And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.
    27 And if he smite out his manservant's tooth, or his maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.

    Gun-wielding Alabama granny held wanted man at gunpoint, investigators say

    By Talia Kaplan | Fox News
    Alabama grandmother recounts story of holding suspected car thief at gunpoint

    A gun-wielding grandmother in Alabama confronted a wanted man in her driveway on Monday after he crashed a stolen car near her home, according to investigators.

    Marcia Black, 75, said she pointed a rifle at the suspect while her 15-year-old granddaughter called 911.

    “I was just calm as can be. I knew I was in control,” the grandmother-of-four told WAAY-TV on Tuesday.

    Investigators said Cameron Powers came to Black’s home in Limestone County, west of Huntsville.

    “I walked out and said, ‘Can I help you?’ He said, ‘Yes ma’am, I’d like to use your phone,” Black said.

    She said she fired a shot in the air to stop Powers from getting closer to her house where two of her grandchildren reportedly were watching from inside.

    “I wanted to keep him at a distance. I didn’t intend to kill him. I just wanted him to think that I would shoot him,” Black said.

    She added, “He wouldn’t get down so I shot in the air and he realized I meant business, so he got down to his knees.”

    Black said he stayed down on his knees until deputies arrived a short time later, adding that when deputies got there, Powers tried to run, but it wasn't long before he was arrested.

    “He feared the deputy more than he did my rifle and he jumped up and ran zig-zag right across the field,” she said.

    “That’s just amazing to me that I got to witness my grandmother in action,” Black’s granddaughter said.

    Powers has been charged with car theft and attempting to elude.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Are you saying that a servant is the same thing as a slave?

    In the bible yes. They aren't paid butlers or maids. They are slaves.

    Surveillance footage shows Ohio store clerk using gun to scare off would-be burglar
    By Vandana Rambaran | Fox News

    Raw video: Drive through worker with gun scares off would be thief

    The altercation was caught on camera.

    An Ohio convenience store clerk scared off a man attempting to rob a Pit Stop on Monday, and the drama was caught on camera.

    A masked man wearing all black and carrying a gun attempted to climb through the drive-thru window of a Pit Stop at a Warren convenience store. A clerk saw the man and grabbed a gun he kept in the store, pointing it at the suspect as he approached the window. The strategy worked, and the would-be intruder fled.

    The clerk told police he fired into the air as a warning shot.

    The masked man got away and is still at large, but police are not pressing charges against the clerk.

    “It’s a bit daring to try to climb through a window to rob a business, but fortunately the clerk was armed and was able to protect themselves from any harm that could have come to them,” Warren Police Lt. Bryan Holmes said to WKBN.

    Missouri woman hunts down thieves, steals car back

    By Bradford Betz | Fox News

    A Missouri woman with no background in police work tracked down the suspects who stole her car, then stole the car right back, according to a Monday report.

    Kansas City resident Danielle Reno told KCTV5 that her Toyota 4Runner was stolen while she was at a gas station with her daughter.

    “I got out of my car, grabbed my daughter, and my car was gone,” Reno said.

    Reno filed a report with authorities, then took matters into her own hands, the station reported.

    By tracking purchases on her credit cards and the activity of her phone – which were in the stolen vehicle – Reno said she managed to narrow in on the suspects.

    “We stalked this lady for 48 hours. She had no idea what we were doing,” Reno said.

    A QuickTrip attendant told Reno the car thieves were on their way to an Applebee’s, KCTV5 reported. At the restaurant, Reno said she saw one of the suspects walk in with her wallet and keys.

    “Got our waters and she walked in the door,” Reno said. “I about had a heart attack.”

    Reno said left the restaurant and took back her car. She told KCTV5 that the interior of the car had been thrashed and she didn’t want to drive it anymore.

    Clay County deputies reportedly arrested the suspects. Authorities told KCTV5 that citizens are ill-advised to conduct investigations on their own, but noted that Reno never put herself in danger

    In Ancient Roman and Greek culture thievery was at times punishable by death.

    I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about killing a man when you've got him safely in custody and for killing him for theft.

    Don't steal.

    Define "safely in custody"
