    I seen this episode of "Repo Games" on Spike TV weeks ago. I'm sure you all know what is "Repo Games" all about.
    The car owner came out with an AR15 SBR pointing to Tom Detone, the show host.
    What do you think of this? Will his 2nd amendment be taken away from him? I'm not a gun laws expert but i'd say he shouldn't point his weapon to someone. Specially in this case, his life wasn't threatened at all.

    Other than the fact of the show being staged, im sure it was just in the script and it will probally happen again in a few months on the show to keep it interesting.

    I hate to be the one to bring this up, but Repo, Auction Wars, Pawn Stars, et al are scripted re-enactment shows. It ain't real. Really.

    Now to finish destroying your values, we need to talk about professional wrestling, Santa, and the Easter Bunny.

    Repo or no, the same standards of law apply as anywhere else- make a threat to do harm, accompanied by the present apparent ability to carry out that threat, you had better be able to demonstrate why that threat was justified. Oherwise you have just committed Assualt with a Deadly Weapon, and you stand to lose a lot more than your Second Amendment rights. You are looking at a serious felony, loss of your freedom and girlish laughter.

    If you find a stranger in the driveway unlocking your car, you may or may not be justified in presenting a weapon. There are 57 states (according to our President) and each has different laws. If you find that you have someone executing a lawful repo order, that is no longer justified.

    I can't tell if this is because of the thought that Repo Games was real, or the absolutely terrible English that was used through this entire thread...

    I don't want to hear a thing about Professional wrestling, Santa OR the Easter Bunny. That's where I draw the line. Professional wrestling wouldn't be called "Professional" if it weren't real. And I have seen Santa and the Easter Bunny.

    When did POTUS say we had 57 states? LOL

    I know others have differing opinions on this but I would not take someone's life over my car. Not even a scumbag. Now, if he went after me or my family, I would feel differently.........my possessions, not really. I have insurance. Unless, of course, it is a repo......then my insurance is of no help.

    As stated previously, I don't think it's "real". But I am impressed by you guys who can recognize a gun on sight like that. I have not developed that skill yet but I am getting better. :)

    Several years back, I was introduced to a couple of well known tag team pro wrestlers. We were chatting, so I asked him- when they jump off the turnbuckle and land on your chest- does that really hurt? Naw, not really. How about that flat handed slap in the throat? Na, not really.

    So I asked- what DOES really hurt? His partner looked at me, and said when the freakin' fans don't like you- and throw flashlight batteries. :eek:
