    Besides, I love how the story started "He was driving through a seedy part of town..." Yeah, that was the initial problem right there. Maybe if you stay out of the bad, high-crime parts of town, you won't have those problems.

    On a counterpoint.... I've been harassed by bad cops twice. Also, I was almost arrested on two seperate occasions due to mistaken identity. Also, a trooper and I had some words because the trooper didn't know the law and I did... as I eventually proved by getting a letter sent to all SC trooper stations with the SC AttyGeneral's paper on CCW in automobiles.

    In a way that's kind of funny, considering that I used to BE a cop, and that I have a clean record with no felonies or even misdemeanors other than traffic citations. Nor do I live in an urban area, I live out in the country.

    Then again I've had an oddly-eventful life in many other ways as well.

    Even so, and I already said there were bad cops out there, that doesn't give anyone a reason to be absolutely paranoid. Is it possible that some cop is going to pull you over and shoot you in the face? Sure, it's possible. Is it likely? Not remotely. There are very few people who have had such experiences in the population, but lots of people take these very few anecdotes and blow it entirely out of proportion.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I agree with this. People talk about the bad incidents, remember them and repeat them, but rarely mention the good ones.

    When I was about 4, I was playing in a playground with my sister and got struck in the head with a metal swing (back in the bad old days when playground safety was an oxymoron, lol). She was 15, and when she saw that I was gushing blood she tried to flag down passing cars to take me to the hospital. Several cars passed without stopping, then a police car stopped and took us straight to the hospital. I owe a debt of thanks to that cop and I never got his name.

    Re: Do you own or someone in your household own a firearm?

    More than I can count. I have won at least a couple dozen or more including a glock recently, two snubbies, 10 other handguns (another glock, a walther PPK, a Glock 22, a SW 45, a SW 357, a Browning HiPower) some longguns such as as a ,TC semi auto 22 rifle, a Browning Citori hunting shotgun etc.

    Just bought another rifle today-went by a friend's gunshop after picking up a delivery of ammo and a pistol I had lent another friend at a gunshow. My buddy who runs the shop wasn't at the show but was at his shop and my boy wanted to drop by the shop so we went. He had a like new (never shot -100 bucks off new IZHMASH Russian basic biathlon rifle for 300 dollars. ITs got one of those neat toggle bolts on it and while it is designed for hunting rather than serious competition (has a scope rail rather than biathlon legal aperture sight) it looked pretty neat and my son really liked it so we got it. My son shoots alot-has already passed (he isn't old enough to carry at age 12) the advanced CCW shooting class here in ohio and has won several shooting events including a pistol tournament on falling steel plates beating several dozen adults.

    I have everything from serious target rifles (Anchutz and Spring Armory Super National Match and a RRA DCM AR 15 and a Colt H-Bar), serious target pistols (SW 41, RRA national Match 45, ) target shotguns (K-80 Olympic skeet, remington 3200 Olympic trap, Beretta-briley American skeet tube set) lots of military style rilfes such as AK 74 (red jacket-the best) AK 47 (again Red Jacket-the best) Steyr AUG. and the american made microtech copy, AR's (Colt, RRA, Bushmaster, Armalite, S&W, Lewis Machine) FAL (Browning, DSA and Inbel) etc

    all in heavy duty electronic controlled safes

    I see you've fallen victim to the propaganda of the anti-gun left.

    This will not be a surprise to anyone that pays any attention, but I own several guns.

    I see you cannot read....
    I own a gun, at one time owned as many as 3 of them.
    I am for responsible ownership of guns, and if you can be even remotely identified as stupid, or mentally/emotionally unstable, you should not be allowed to own one.

    I was referring specifically to your use of the term "cop killer bullets".
    That entire issue is hooey, conjured up by those who oppose the free ownership of guns by the law-abiding public.
