Here's another "why we carry"...
Much to my surprise, I didn't see anything posted here about this.
I didn't post the story because I wasn't sure about copyright stuff, so I just posted a link.
And of course the link doesn't work????
Well this is a more detailed account so maybe it works:
Ahhh, it works!
And they wonder why we 'banish' them...
So this BG was a CONVICTED rapist and murder, obviously rehabilitated. In my local paper this week there was an article where the registered sex offenders were complaining because they had paid their debt to society and felt unfairly 'banished' and scorned by the citizenry. They blamed the registration laws. One women complained that because here husband had been convicted in NJ of a sexual assault on a nephew (he served 2.5 years and they have moved to Florida) that the other kids would not play with her son (2 children in the house) and the husband could not get a job. Why would you stay married to a convicted sex offender? Of course the perp said he had made a 'terrible mistake' and it would never happen again. The paper had a picture of him playing chess with another nephew. Are these people insane?
Anyway, here is the link as long as the story remains available..
