Death in my neighborhood today
This afternoon SWMBO and I were outside playing with the kids when we hear sirens and soon after the local LEO helicopter is overhead orbiting. We live near two jails, a prison, and numerous detention, juvenile offender, work release, and drug treatment facilities so we figure maybe an escape of some kind is in progress. Condition orange, but no big deal, a stranger will stand out on our dead end street.
Find out today a man on the next street died of what appears to be a "cleaning his gun" gunshot wound. SWMBO works for 911 and saw the call at work tonite for the medical examiner.
Please lets all take an extra minute to remember to be safe, this is a close to home hit for me.

What is with the spate of gun deaths from "cleaning" lately??? This is at least the third one posted since the new year began.

'Spring cleaning' perhaps? Sounds like people who are too comfortable and not following the four safety rules.

From a journalistic point, it used to be that "cleaning a gun" was a euphemism for suicide. I do not know if that is still the case in some publications.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
