    These fellows who decided to video a road-rage encounter in Russia seem to think it's pretty funny when the guy pulls his hogleg and starts blasting:
    Pedestrian Vs. Driver - YouTube

    This is the sort of thing that FerFAL talks about, where people become so desensitized to random violence and criminality that they just go about their normal business even as shots ring out around them. None of the other vehicles in the vid even seem to react to the gunshots.

    He uses the "frog in slowly boiling water" metaphor a lot; how do you know when it's time to load up and move or just plain bug out? There won't be one event - you'll just wake up one day to find you're living in our own version of Argentina or Russia.

    Nah, the shooting was way too accurate and controlled for South Africa.

    It must happen a thousand times for every one instance where there's a camera running.

    Please don't take this as anti-gun, but I have always thought it is so easy to get guns and ammo because when our collapse comes TPTB want us to do all the work for them. Kill each other off, then they come in a collect on and suppress what is left. Divide and conquer is their MO.

    How do you know that the guys driving in the car and shooting video are not Russian mobsters and find the act funny because they themselves are souless pieces of dung.

    I understand russian, and all the pedestrien did was shoot out that car's windows.

    Most of the population in Russia are disarmed, even getting BB guns is a challenge there, unless you're in the mafia.

    Interesting perspective, I have told people for years that TPTB were doing everythingpossible to divide the masses and conquer. Remember the CIA importing drugs and using the profits to funds the puppet gooberments.

    Divide and conquer has worked in the political arena for decades, so why not use the same strategy when the hot war starts?

    This video is interesting. I work with a fellow (now a US citizen) who is from Russia, even was a member of the Russian military, and asked him about Russian civillian gun ownership. He told me that yes, it's legal for them to own guns - but they are all registered, you must take mandatory training for the type of gun you're buying, there are strict restrictions, and 90+ % of legal guns are restricted to non-lethal rounds (low-power rubber ball ammo). He said you can get a license to carry - but only with non-lethal ammo. The only way to get a license for lethal-rounds is if you are military, police, or security/body guard of some sort. The only other way to get lethal rounds is for hunting, and you're restricted to caliber and amount of ammo you're allowed to have, can't store guns loaded, etc. etc.

    Illegal guns are big business there, but ammo is expensive and not easy to obtain. It's pretty likely that, if this is a legal gun, that was a non-lethal round and it's surprising that the window of that car broke at all.

    Shooting at somebody with a non-lethal round sounds about as satisfying as drinking non-alcoholic beer.

    Yeah - who needs all that civil liability without the thrill of committing a capital crime?
