Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Drama queens

Following the Heller decision, there have been some wild claims made by some rather, uh, strident gun control advocates. Note all of the media attention that they've been getting. It reminds me a little of 1995, when Texas passed the first Concealed Handgun License law in the history of the state. Claims of impending violent encounters were made so often, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the sales of boat shoes went up, to keep people from slipping in the coming river of blood in the streets.

A river, of course, which never came.

Here's an odd concept to chew on: that Sarah Brady, Chuck Schumer, Richard Bradey, Diane Feinstein, and their ilk are now hoping that the rate of murders goes up in D.C., to bolster their position.

Here, we have a very few seconds of really spectacular footage, as Chicago Mayor Richard Bradey learns of the outcome of the Heller decision, and comes to realize what this means for his similar Chicago handgun restriction.

And here, you can watch Diane Feinstein as she, too, realizes what this ultimately will mean, for the fate of the citizens of San Francisco.

"My God! They'll all be... free!"

Blood in the streets, huh?

Well, like you pointed out, every time a baddie gets a lead injection, the murder rate goes up.

You take the bad with the good, I suppose.

I live just outside of Chicago and happened to be watching the news when his Richardness came on. What is really sad is he truly believes that gangbangers and drug dealers buy their guns FROM A STORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an idiot.

Those would have to be red boat shoes, otherwise the river of blood, or should it be ocean of blood, would ruin them.

I'm sitting on the curb in front of my house, patiently waiting for my local Ice Cream Truck of Death to come by and drop off all those Uzis.

Music, sweet music. :)

Looks like they've figured out how to solve this "river of blood" problem, though. It's a downright nifty Fantasyland. Excerpt:

"Under our plan, Congress might require gun makers in the aggregate to reduce gun homicides from 12,000 to, say, 7,000 in 10 years, with appropriate interim targets along the way. Individual firms would each have their own targets to meet, based on the extent their guns are currently used in homicides. Or Congress might simply leave it to neutral experts to determine just how much of a numerical reduction should be required -- and how quickly. Either way, the required decline would be substantial."
