From what I have heard, the Trucker was told he would have to wait until the morning to get a load and was told he could park his truck north of the Main gate parking lot. He then proceeded to park IN the main gate parking lot. The guard came out and told him he would have to move his truck and that he would show him where he could park. The guard got into his car and drove to the lot where the trucker needed to park. The trucker followed him and then used his truck to ram the guards car. Thats how the guard sustained his injuries. The guard got on the radio and radioed for help while the trucker was raming his car. The trucker was trying to kill him with his semi. The guard exited his vehicle and drew his gun, The trucker got out with a knife and this is about the time the police showed up. The police told the guard to drop his weapon and he did. Then the trucker came after the cop and the cop shot him. The trucker had already tried using deadly force to ram the guard and was now wielding a knife. He got what he deserved.

Well it seems that someone has been posting bogus messages pretending to be me which is laughable because none of you are worthy holding my oversized jock strap,it seems that my moxey has infuriated a wannabe member of the kkk well racism never has bothered me because I've had some of the finest white tail available.I myself am not a racist I'll fight anybody no matter the color but I do take alot of interest in whipping white boys especially the ones that give me dirty looks at the hospital or special metals(my two work places)when they see me getting dropped off by fine ass white girls,I'm busy tonight so whoever is posting comments and saying there just kidding or trolling its not me and to the one who was bashing brothers well I just got done making a fine white nurse melt and her scent is all over me maybe it was your wife or sister.btw you know where to find me just ask for Lieutenant Derrick Johnson but I won't hear from any of you because you like walking without assistance.
If that really wasn't you that admitted you were just trolling and you really think the BS you are spouting is anything but laughable Id like to ask a couple of questions and fill in a couple details.

First, I am a female. Now, if you were just having fun trolling I can't really say anything about it because Im one of the people that likes to argue (see previous post), whether it has a purpose or just for fun. But, if that wasn't you relenting and you come back sticking to the original types of posts and were actually serious about the idiotic comments you made, then I would like to single the last one out that referred to no one posting their real name because of fear and lack of "testicular capacity" (I believe that's how you put it), to say it to you're face or post their name and then welcome them to meet you anywhere and prove it.

My name is Amalia Dyanna Napier, I have a law degree and BAR certified to practice law in 6 states- including West Virginia.(Give me a call one of your crack head buddies or you go to jail. I do pro bono cases for the mentally impaired.) I'm 5'3, about 12O lbs (well probably 125 with this holiday vacation, but still mostly muscle and haven't lost my 6-pack- not as opposing as a large, in-shape male but capable of defending myself),and if need be I have a concealed carry permit (with proper training & practice- both typical and stress-induced, very accurate aim [although contrary to my training of shooting center mass/head shots & I tend to aim for the family jewels in deserving males and you certainly fit that description]), and full confidence I can shoot just as compintently as a lot of great male shooters and far from scared to use it!

Not saying I could whip your ass without any help or weapons for various reasons. For example,(1) Ladies don't fight.(2)Im a lawyer! I can do much more damage in a court room than I can with physical altercation (even though being a security guard I am sure there isn't anything monetary to to go after)- I use my intelligence and civility to win my disputes instead of barbaric (and Im sure in your case, highly exaggerated) brawn.(3) If any unavoidable barbaric brawn is needed I have plenty of capable, REAL MEN to back me up.

^Cont'd from Above:

My husband is a former Navy Seal and did Military Police before being accepted for Seal training. While in the military he served 6 tours over seas, mostly in the Middle East and all in war zones. Obviously he is trained in hand-to-hand combat and a dead on shot with any gun you give him. When he left the military he joined NYC PD and SWAT as well as Army Nat. Guard Special Forces. Now he's doing Federal Law Enforcement (but still part of ANG-SF). He never had any interest in going pro but for fun and to keep in good shape while keeping his defensive skills fresh he has also done MMA training and fighting and still uses it for training/working out.

My best friend (and my husband's best friend) also served in the military but not with my husband. He was a Marine. He is also in Fed. LE but different branch than my husband. He did a little MMA training with my husband but still does a work-out daily that would kick most peoples' ass about half way through. He is a very nice and respectable man and it takes a lot to piss him off but a few things light him up like a bomb.(1) He can't stand anyone who is obnoxious, cocky, arrogant and conceded. He really hates it when they're black and make comments like you did about "stealing fine white women", because he says that is the type of attitude (along with the pants around their knees, the hats with the tags still on them, and constant whining about how hard they have and how America owes them something b/c they're black [on that one, his stance is that many of the people screaming that didn't even have ancestors in the slave trade; and even the civil rights act made the circumstances for the blacks pretty level with all other races now. A lot of people grow up with bad lives or have ancestors with bad stories (i.e. Jewish people for instance) but again it is the black people who are the only ones that feel they have the right to sit on their ass with their hand out for it or blame every failure on their race. And, again, that makes a bad name for the black people like him who are certainly doing better than the white trailer trash covering half the continent!)

Plus, both my husband and my best friend have a SERIOUS problem with any so-called "man" that would resort to hitting any woman for nearly any reason. Men are bigger, if your woman or a woman is trying to whip your ass then just restrain them til they calm down. Takes a "real man" to beat on a woman or anyone less than half of their size.

So, like I said, my name is Ashley Napier. I'll be going back to NYC a little after New Year but if you have any doubt I would have any trouble saying anything I've already said and much more to your face then let's work out a convenient time for both of us and meet up. You can say whatever you want to me because I don't typically become offended by someone as ignorant as you (that is, if you really are for real about this)but the second you pull a gun you will be shot or if you just put your hands on me in a threatening way, well start praying to whoever it is you pray to because you'll be in immediate need of divine help. So, when and where do you want to meet up tough guy because you are running out of time.

Ashley, this is a serious question (no trolling). Did your husband any time in the military ever have training or was it ever mentioned by his superiors that one day the military would be used to disarm and confiscate guns from citizens? I am curious. Is all this stuff just a paranoid scare? Or is there any basis for all the gun owner's concern?

NO! I can't say this has never or never will happen but in ALL the military training he's had, like I said, it's a bunch, this was NEVER mentioned. Also, like I said, our best friend has extensive military training as well and it was never mentioned or trained to him also. I can't say what branch or position, but I can also tell you that my husband and best friend are in areas of FLE that would most likely know way before the average citizen if they were even thinking of trying to wipe out guns completely. Basically, most military people are avid gun enthusiasts even years after their military service ends and my husband and friend both joke that the men in suits making the laws better be coming up with a secret military they have complete control over and arm them heavily if they ever intend on even attempting to take everyones guns b/c the military guys themselves wouldn't turn in their personal guns and they wouldnt make civilians do it either whether that was their order or not. And, the government knows that.

The US Gov't. may succeed in making it more difficult to obtain certain types of guns and ammo but even that will be a hard road to walk. Trying to totally disarm the civilians would amount to a civil war that made the first US Civil War look like a dodge ball game on an elementary school play ground.

So, if you have interest in owning a machine gun or other fully automatic weapons (which you already have to have a permit to own currently and pay a good amount to own one, not to mention the price of the gun and ammo alone) then you may want to consider trying to obtain one quicker than later.

But, if your interest lies in typical hunting weapons (both for big and small game) or revolvers/pistols (with the pistols having your average 13+- a few bullets clip) then you don't have anything to worry about in the near future unless our government is over-thrown and a dictator with balls the size of Texas is taking over then there is no reason to panic.

Ashley, Thanks! I have no desire to own any fully auto guns. I would just waste a lot of Ammo with something like that at the gun range. My semi autos are fine for me. This does ease my mind. Tell you husband and Friend I thank them for their service to this great Country I love. Without those men, we would have a poor quality of life. I pray for them all the time. Thank You.

Your welcome!(From both me, my husband, and our friend) Thankfully my husband saw plenty of combat and lost several friends, but, he was fortunate in the fact he didn't lose any of his friends right in front of him. Our friend was nit so lucky. He watches the guy he had been best friends with since pre-school blown up in the convoy truck in front of him by an IED. He isn't the same to this day. It's nice to hear a thank you every now and then from people for the troops. They actually uncounted more idiots that say things like "Well too bad they didn't get the whole division! That would have at least been less tax-payers dollars fighting a war we shouldn't be in!" or "Why do you people care if those ignorant towel heads are free? They can't handle freedom. They're too stupid to have an elected government b/c they'd never follow the rules anyway!" and my husband actually got spit on in a bar for being in uniform because "we were fighting a war we can't win". I see all their arguments a little bit, but first, the soldiers ensure their freedom to act like jack asses and spit on the troops and second, the soldiers aren't the ones that determine when we go to war or how long they stay. It's their job and the only difference between that job and any other (besides the fact that in a war zone there are no sick days, they have to go to "work" everyday not knowing if they are going to have to kill someone or get killed themselves [many times when no enemy soldiers are in sight], and if they don't do what they're told they face dishonorable discharge (which can literally ruin their life) or military prison.

So, thank you for your compliment and I will most definitely pass on the "thank you"!
