    It would be harder to do a driveby with no cars or roads. With 300 Million guns out there, the "go after the guns" side is quite unrealistic a solution to crime. It is political masturbation.

    fairly easy, ban then.. then a massive effort to police up the holdouts.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Article is here.
    They just keep coming...

    "WENTZVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Wentzville man is jailed after allegedly becoming agitated during a barber shop discussion of the Newtown, Conn., shooting and allegedly shooting in the direction of a patron.

    Assault, armed criminal action and unlawful possession of a weapon charges were filed against 57-year-old Lester Davis of Wentzville following the shooting Tuesday at All Cuts Barber Shop in Wentzville.

    A patron made the comment that the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School made him want to kill the suspect. For unknown reasons, police say Davis took the comment as a threat and asked, “You want to murder me?”

    Davis then allegedly went to his car, retrieved a pistol and fired three times in the customer’s direction. No one was hurt."

    I'm thinking it's related to generally insane state of people in our society these days.

    Obama and the loons want all rape victims unable to defend themselves.

    The liberals want the type of American men that will take guns away from their wives, their daughters, even their mothers and hand them to the government.

    That is liberalism.

    I agree with that somewhat. Folks are higly stressed right now in general. Poor economy, transportation and food prices climbing, the most stressful of holiday seasons upon us and major changes being hotly debated. Add in the media's perchant for stoking the fires unceasingly, and you have a recipe for the wacky few to explode in messy fashion.

    As much as I hate to say it, we've had it too easy, for too long. People don't understand how to live and survive anymore in tough times, and imo, it's to our detriment generally.

    I get the sense that somewhere along the line we stopped working for the future and instead concentrate on featherbedding today.

    No you need everyone to have guns, even babies, so that they can shoot it out like in the wild west.

    This kind of thing occurs every day in this country in black and Hispanic communities and never a word is spoken. Now that it is politically expedient, all of a sudden people 'care'.
