Default Jar Jar BANG !

Texas gas station clerk shot man who broke a jar of salsa

https://nypost.com/2022/11/22/gas-st...b4e1ff2c3a94cd

A Texas gas station clerk has been arrested after shooting at a customer who broke a jar of salsa, authorities said.

Breanna Miranda, 22, was taken into custody Friday after the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office responded to a disturbance call at her workplace in Atascocita, the precinct confirmed in a statement.

After arriving, officers learned that Miranda told a male customer to leave the store. The two argued, at which point the man broke a jar of salsa before storming outside.

Miranda allegedly followed the man outside and retrieved a handgun from her car before firing at him twice, FOX News reported.

It is unclear if the man was injured in the fight.

Police subsequently booked Miranda into the Harris County Jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Her bail is set at $20,000

I'm thinking if she wanted to hit him she could have.

Charges should be reduced to unlawful discharge.

I wonder what happens if you use the restroom and forget to turn out the light.

I mean, does she run outside and

slash your tires?

Good thing she was not in California legally carrying a gun in a car. She would not have missed. Her CCW school would have trained her to shoot a gun. Not like Texas. Everyone gets a CCW.

California's restrictions are totally cool. I wanted to buy a 1911 Colt but couldn't because California. Very cool. I'm loving our $5 regular gas and exploded 'homeless' population, too, and our free medical for illegal criminals. CA just plain ROCKS. Big Oppressive Irresponsible Government is totally kick-ass.

Uh okay. I know military and police that cant hit a barn door with a shotgun..
CA is nothing special.
Then again, I started teaching my youngest to shoot when she was about 10/11.
Combat shooting is where its at, precision is for competition.

Just venting about what I don't like about my home state. Just today the talk locally is how to provide free housing to meth and fentanyl addicts.

It never stops.

San*Francisco, CA -- Mayor London N. Breed today announced the launch of a new guaranteed income program for San*Francisco’s trans community. The Guaranteed Income for Trans People (GIFT) Program will provide low-income transgender San Franciscans with $1,200 each month, up to 18 months to help address financial insecurity within trans communities.

As part of the City’s growing portfolio of guaranteed income programs, GIFT is one of several programs the City is developing, implementing, and evaluating to identify how to best support San*Francisco residents and promote economic stability and recovery. This pilot program is the first guaranteed income initiative to focus solely on trans people, and will accept applications from November 15 through December 15, 2022.

The GIFT Program will provide 55 eligible trans individuals with temporary income and a range of wrap-around direct services such as gender affirming medical and mental health care, case management and specialty care services, as well as financial coaching.

“Our Guaranteed Income Programs allow us to help our residents when they need it most as part of our City’s economic recovery and our commitment to creating a more just city for all,” said Mayor London Breed. “We know that our trans communities experience much higher rates of poverty and discrimination, so this program will target support to lift individuals in this community up. We will keep building on programs like this to provide those in the greatest need with the financial resources and services to help them thrive.”

Transgender communities, experience poverty and economic instability at disproportionate rates. In 2015, when the U.S. Trans Survey was last conducted, 33% of trans Californians were living in poverty, compared to 12% of people in the general population. The percentage among trans people who are also Black, Indigenous and People of Color is even higher.

“Even with our rich history of trans advocacy, we see that trans San Franciscans experience poverty at exponentially higher rates compared to the general population,” said Pau Crego, Executive Director of the San*Francisco Office of Transgender Initiatives. “This is especially the case for trans people of color, disabled trans people, trans elders, and other trans communities

deeply impacted by discrimination and barriers to education, employment, and economic mobility. While in other parts of the country and the world trans people are targeted by institutions and legislators, in San*Francisco, we move towards progress and justice by investing in our most vulnerable residents."

I am glad you spent a day (or 3) at the range being introduced to safe marksmanship.
My father introduced me to firearms at the age of 12. He stressed (and enforced via confiscation along with remedial lessons) safe handling and responsible shooting from the beginning. I have now been a shooter, reloader, hobby gunsmith, firearms historian, collector and hunter for more than 50 years so shut the **** up about your State mandated one time bullshit seminar "teaching" you and your peers anything about firearms handling and safety.
No single lesson equals "knowledge" on any subject.

I have been a shooter for 40 years myself. Just glad California makes sure you can shoot the gun you carry. Many states do not care if you have no shooting skills and kill innocent people on your missed shots.

Did the State teach you the basics years ago or was it a family member who taught you? I suspect the State classes were an easy pass if you shot as a youth. So... that class bored you, and really had no impact for you at all...
Do they cover each applicants weapon individually, cover the difference between single and double action triggers, explain the importance of choosing the correct ammunition for each weapon owned, show what happens if a 20 gauge round is inserted in a 12 gauge barrel, demonstrate the manual of arms for each weapon in the class, explain sight pictures, trigger discipline, how to press the trigger... on and on...
I think not.

Oh yeah, I forgot weapon disassembly, cleaning, reassembly and storage. Safe transport? Where to shoot? Local clubs, websites, gunsmiths, forums? I think not these things as well.
In summary... the State might teach new shooters how not to accidently kill themselves or others with their shiny new toys, but they come nowhere near training them how to be "shooters".

In California, you have to qualify for the weapon listed in your CCW. This means you must demonstrate you can break down your gun, load it, safely shoot it, and hit 12-inch targets 70% of the time from 3 yards, 5 yards, and 15 yards with 20 rounds to each target while being timed.
