    DC Comedian Changed Stance On Guns After Feeling ‘Level Of Helplessness’ During Armed Robbery

    Washington DC comedian Tim Young has changed his stance on gun rights after he robbed at gunpoint. Young not only had his cell phone stolen, but he said several people who witnessed the armed robbery did nothing to help him.

    Young now has plans to get trained and go through all the requirements necessary so he can carry a gun outside his home. “That level of fear and that level of helplessness that you feel, it doesn’t compare to anything else I’ve felt in my life.”

    At the time of the robbery, Young was heading to one of D.C.’s newest hotspots—The Wharf—when his life changed. He was walking down a well-lit section of M Street at about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday when two men approached him—one of them had a gun. When asked how he felt when he saw someone point a gun at him, he replied “scared.”

    “Terrified. You know, when I talk to people about this… you’re scared. There’s no man card involved. I was defenseless,” explained Young, who’s a political comedian and host of ‘No Things Considered’ at the D.C. Examiner. The men ran off with his cell phone.

    Young soon realized that the unwillingness of the complacent population waiting for someone else to help was also a concern. Two people called 911 after the theft had already been over but the “rest of the folks walked off.” “They just stood by and watched as I was yelling for help. ‘Help, I’m being robbed!’ They stood by and watched,” recalled Young. But the attack made Young change his stance on gun ownership.

    But in Washington DC, it won’t be easy to go about it in law-abiding and legal manner, in fact, criminals have a much easier time accessing weapons than the good people of the public because they simply skirt the law. The District is one of the toughest places in the country to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. “When you’re in an instance where there’s a gun is pointed at you and your life is being threatened for your property and no one’s going to help—and now I know that no one’s going to help—I want to feel more secure. I want to feel safe, and I have something to defend myself with,” he said.

    Young also said that he thinks the only ones who are against gun ownership, are those who have never been in a situation like he was put in. “I think a lot of those people who are opposed to having a conceal carry permit and being able to own a weapon have never had one pointed directly at them when they have nothing on them,” Young said.

    When asked how the situation would have gone differently had he had a gun, Young told Bruce Johnson on Off Script that he probably would have pulled it out to defend himself.

    The comedian now has no intention of ever being a soft target for criminals again.

      “Young also said that he thinks the only ones who are against gun ownership, are those who have never been in a situation like he was put in.”

      Or have private / public security (being a VIP) and will never be in that position.

      “A conservative is a liberal who got mugged”.

        I would never trust my safety and security to someone else.

        At the very least you should carry a pistol for face to face encounters.

        • Kevin2 says:

          According to sources President Reagan occasionally carried a handgun. President Trump might also as it wouldn’t surprise me. Personally I’de bring Chuck Schumer to share my meals as I think something on this order is the greater threat.

        • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

          From the libturd fantasy world to reality. Well, there’s one person I can’t call a libturd anymore. I’m glad to hear he survived his ordeal. It’s a damn shame it had to take something like this to bring someone out of a fantasy world into reality. I wish him well and hope he learns everything he needs to know.

        Sorry you can’t fix liberal that fast

      A simple thought experiment should have led him to the same conclusion an armed robbery ultimately led him to.

      Now he’s becoming a danger to the dangerous ideology he was following blindly.

      It should be fun to watch his Marxist/Fascist/Commie/Socialist/Progressive buddies now try to eat him alive.

      • boyo says:

        …and to add to his epiphany…don’t try to draw on a gun that’s already drawn on you. Give up the wallet and phone, unless you really can disarm him and win.

        • John Stiner says:

          If you have your hand on your gun while it is still in the holster, you most likely draw and fire before the other person can react and shoot.

          Best shoot them in the head, though, a body shot will give the bad guy time to fire back.

        • Thats one thing, too, that people don’t realize. When you carry a gun, you are (or should be) educated in its limitations. Most crooks are not. The gun is just a symbol of fear, its not actually a tool to be used like it is to people that are educated in the ways of the gun. As such, they don’t really think about what they’re doing. Use fear as a head fake then pull your own gun and riddle their body with bullets.

          Once you threaten someone with a gun in my state, you’ve put your life in that someone else’s hands and they are free to do with it as they will.

    3. DMONIC says:

      It shouldn’t be illegal to shoot someone in the back after they robbed you by gunpoint.

      • John Stiner says:

        In Texas, it is not.

        Hell, in Texas you can shoot and kill people for “Theft in the night time”.

        This is hell on the night time shop lifters at the local mom and pop convenience stores.

      • Heartless says:

        The poor weenie finally got it straight. Took losing his most precious possession to do so. But DMONIC, if you have to shoot some turd-licking criminal in the back…. don’t fret. Just flip them over face up and put another one through from front to back – same hole. There, problem solved. Dont’ forget to put a replacement round in the magazine or cylinder. Anyone ask about the 2nd shot they heard – say, “damn it sure is echo-y around here”.

    4. Sgt. Dale says:

      You know why you carry a gun. BECAUSE A COP TOO DAMN HEAVY!
      Sgt.

    5. Beowulf says:

      Guess what, the robbers were blacks. One day there will be a reckoning. Just need enough white men to awaken. Guess that fool woke up.

      • Kevin2 says:

        I’m in a very white area in SW Florida and watching the news the blacks largely prey on their own. That white tattooed meth head commits more than his share of robberies too and hits the white neighborhoods.

      • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

        Beowulf, the FBI and DOJ statistics make it clear who’s responsible for most of the crime in this country.

        • Genius says:

          Yup, white patriot men…

        • Kevin2 says:

          The Deplorable Braveheart

          I read the reports every year and they’re within a few percentage points of varying. It pretty much breaks down that blacks are 12% of the population but 55% of the murders and 65% of the armed robberies. A black male between the ages of 17-27 the greatest cause of death is murder. For a white male in the same age group its motorcycle accident. All of this being said the blacks largely kill their own thus the 17-27 likely cause of death. They are disproportionately involved in violent crime but its generally against each other. I live in a area that is 4% black and they’re mostly retired or working class not the underclass. That 19 year old white meth head with a gallon of tattoo ink on him is the person to watch here.

    6. Sean says:

      The Texas State motto is “Friendship”, adopted by the State Legislature, in 1930. The unofficial motto is “Click”, the noise when the safety comes off, or a single action pistol is cocked.

    7. cranerigger says:

      Tim Young, congratulations for seeing the light. I’m glad they didn’t have to put you in a body bag. The leftists that don’t believe in the Bill of Rights (2nd Amendment especially), have ceded their RIGHT TO LIFE to fate. Those of us that want a chance to survive a criminal encounter choose to be legally armed. In so doing we decrease the number of criminals attacking our fellow citizens. For heavens sake folks if you’re on a jury in a communist state, give the citizen protecting his family a fair hearing.

    8. Illini Warrior says:

      the guy is still rare upon rarity – there’s leftist get the ever living shit kicked out of – gang raped to the point they are sterile forever – their partner/spouse murdered in front of them ….. and it’s ”I understand their pain – I forgive them – I just hope that I helped them enough” ..

      can’t help stupidity

    9. Illini Warrior says:

      just saw a pic this morning from a water jug fillup station in Cape Town South Africa …. couple of trashy looking black in the foreground – few whites – more blacks in the back ….

      when the water crunch really hits – what’s the chance that those whites keep their place in line without getting strongarmed line jumped – or get that jug of water home without getting jumped by marauding raider types ….

      “The District is one of the toughest places in the country to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. “
      Bullshit. Hawaii is far far worse. Nobody
      gets a CCW license, unless you are cop.
      We just ignore the law, and carry anyway.

      • Concerned Citizen says:

        Relik: Thank God DC ‘s law NO longer stands, thank the patriot and his attorney that went to court and WON!! “F” DC, what h ole but that is another story. This country is rotting from the inside out…

      • Kevin2 says:

        rellik

        NJ is similar. Private Detectives who are former cops, firearms dealers and the very politically connected wealthy get them. Get caught and your likely to do time due to the Graves Act. I voted with my feet and fled across the river 20 miles from work to safer territory. Unfortunately thats impossible in Hawaii.

    11. Elkhound says:

      It’s unfortunate that it usually takes a terrifying,life altering experience for some people to wake up,stop being so naive,and realize that life isn’t some utopia where everybody is holding hands and singing songs.Criminals don’t discriminate.Criminals don’t care what race you are,and criminals sure as hell don’t care about your political views,or if your male or female.Opportunity is everything with criminals.This guy probably walked that same street dozens of time without incident,but on that day an opportunity presented itself,and the criminals took advantage.Be alert and carry some form of protection at all times.Carrying some form of protection will not guarantee your safety,but at least it will give you a fighting chance,and may deter the criminal..

    12. Andyzon says:

      “Washington DC comedian Tim Young has changed his stance on gun rights after he robbed at gunpoint.”

      That reads that the comedian robbed at gun point. Who did he rob at gun point? Someone needs a better proof reader, ya think?

    13. Kevin2 says:

      Washington DC, our nations capital is a disgrace, an embarrassment. Its likely one of the most dangerous cities in the US. Blacks prey on blacks because they’re around other blacks. Bass eat minnows but a goldfish wouldn’t last 30 seconds. Simply put, there are places you just don’t go to gun or no gun.

    14. dan-o says:

      Liberal= It’s ok for the gov. to take my money.
      Conservative= It’s ok for ME to KEEP my money.

      I bet this comedian won’t work much anymore now that he is ‘one of us’.

    15. Scarecrow says:

      What if you carry a dispenser of highly flammable liquid and set the mofo on fire ?

    16. Sophie says:

      Just came across this article about current gun Laws by State
      Find very informative, the more violent incidents that occur, the less the public supports stricter gun laws!
