    CNN: Guns plentiful Violence soars

    CNN pisses me off

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/05/16/phi...des/index.html

    In Philadelphia, police and civic activists point to several factors, including poverty and drugs. But by far the biggest catalyst, they say, is the availability of guns.

    THEY HAVE EASY ACCESS TO DRUGS TOO AND THAT IS ILLEGAL

    That is their mentality when now people are carrying automatic handguns."
    AUTOMATIC HANDGUNS?????????????????????????????????????????? ??

    "In Philadelphia, police and civic activists point to several factors, including poverty and drugs. But by far the biggest catalyst, they say, is the availability of guns."

    It's almost as if the implication is that these people are having their lives destroyed by being mired in poverty and using drugs--but that's okay. The thing that mainly causes this to be a bad situation is guns--if the guns weren't available, it wouldn't be so bad that lives were being destroyed.

    Please note: this is not my belief, but the implication is there.

    Nope, every BG in Philly has a Glock 18, and drugs and whatever the other thing was that CNN pulled out of their collective...

    Hey, I want an automatic handgun and an AK that shoots steel piercing concrete bullets! Are those bullets cast from Portland cement?

    Laugh it up funny man, if the tool sale hits town around the time I'm ready to set up a reloading room in the shop, that may be my case tumbler.

    I figure if I shoot enough .38s to fill it up once a week, I should be able to shoot just like Miculek by the time I'm 115.

    i just love it when those chronic, liberal excusers of violent criminals talk their whiney trash. These are the same idiots who call a crack or meth addict a "victim."

    CNN: Guns plentiful Violence soars
    The headline really should be: "Violence soars. Gun sales and use keeps pace." That's about all that can be said. To imply a causal relationship based on fears and conjecture is bad reporting at best, lies and deceit most likely, and inciting crimes against the Constitution at worst. If only such crimes were understood to be at least as deadly as anything else, at least in the long run.
