    Would You Believe...............

    On the news tonight here in Omaha they announced that a Federal Marshall had his weapon and his badge stolen from his car at 0300 today. Talk about needing gun control! One of those who are supposed to be the only ones who should have weapons should know enough to not leave a weapon and badge in a car overnight. Some remedial weapon control education is needed.

    A case of "do as I say not do as I do".

    Thank God most gun owners are smarter than the Marshal was.

    I missed that one in the local news. Locking a gun in your car while at work or having to enter a Gun Free Zone is ok, but leaving it in your car overnight is just plain irresponsible.

    It's just too bad James Arness is no longer with us. Marshall Dillon would give that Gomer WHAT FOR!!!

    Are you really saying that you believe that only Federal Marshals should have firearms?

    Why are you blaming the Marshal for the criminal acts of the criminal/criminals who broke into a car and stole someone else's property?

    How about we blame the criminal for a change?

    NO. What we need is criminal/crime control.

    If I were to see some's gun and badge in a car (locked, not locked, convertible with the top down) I would never steal those items. The problem isn't where/how the gun and badge are stored/secured, the problem lies solely with the criminal who commits his/her criminal acts.

    How about instead of bashing the Federal Marshal and suggesting that the Marshal receive "remedial weapon control education", how about we bash the criminal and if he/she can't live a moral life within the confines of our laws then perhaps he/she should be removed from society.

    Bashing the criminal can start once they catch him , right now the Marshall is getting his .

    Unfortunately this happens far more often than is actually reported by the news media.

    And the Feds complain about the rest of us having firearms? Yeah, right.

    I for one am glad his badge was taken from him.
