"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
the two statements are not mutually exclusive...
those addicts that will work within the 'new' system....a system of drugs regulated with a blend of scripts and pharmacies with the revenue from the lessor drugs, pot for instance, subsidizing the rehab facilities needed for the 'hard' addicts. and some of the profits going to pay off the national debt among other uses from the huge windfall of revenue.
and the 'hang um on tv' is for those criminals who still are violent in nature and acts. its a civilized way of saying that society will forgive you your weakness but will not forgive you your acts of violence.
also, the 1st bold was speaking directly to the individual who killed 4 people in the article. but its meaning transfers to all cold blooded killers of honest peoples. now if they just kill each other, lets make it a game show and sell commercial time.

Most of the pharmacy holdups in my area are after oxycontin. The major chains like Walgreen's have started keeping it in time-locked safes, so now the addicts are hitting the smaller pharmacies. I lost count of the number of times that the pharmacy I used to trade with was held up. Between meth and the painkillers, Tennessee has a really serious drug problem and the crime problem that goes along with it.
Now this would never have happened if NY had a few more anti-gun laws that would work as well as the last batch. Anyhow, I'm sure a few more of the same kind would result in a different outcome. If it didn't, why would would we keep passing them? We would be crazy if we weren't absolutely sure that this time they'll work. There's no way we could allow law abiding, responsible citizens to defend themselves legally. Why the streets would run red with the blood of every innocent bystander just like in the old west. Blah,blah,blah,blah blah!
"robbery went wrong" ??? What exactly does that mean?
Someone resisted the robbery? ...or... The perp decided to shoot everyone?

Here is a photo of the dead young clerk working at the pharmacy, that the robber shot in the face:
She was a high school senior, and was going to graduate with honors this coming Thursday.
Why would the gunman kill such a lovely young girl like this?
Since this shooting was in New York, I don't believe that this murderer can get the death penalty.
It would seem to me that he would deserve it, no?
I wish there were more details. Did the gunman execute witnesses or did people try to stop him or what?
The notion that dirtbag drug abusing criminals will suddenly go out and get a job, if drugs were to only cost half as much as they do now, is utterly preposterous.
The latest from FoxNews:
Police have identified the man they say shot and killed four people inside a New York pharmacy over the weekend, the New York Post reports.
Investigators made the identification after reviewing surveillance video from inside a family-owned pharmacy in Medford, N.Y., where four people were fatally shot Sunday in what looked like a robbery gone wrong. The suspect, who police have not named publicly, remains at large, a source told the newspaper.
The man was armed with a handgun, stole prescription drugs and killed everyone in the shop -- including a 17-year-old girl who was to graduate from high school this week -- before fleeing with a black backpack.

All four victims "offered no resistance -- and did not appear to provoke the shooter in any way," Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer told the newspaper on Monday.
"They were all shot at close range," Dormer continued. "They were shot very suddenly and very quickly."

That's more than just your run-of-the-mill criminal scum there. That's a cold-blooded animal. In my opinion, one without a right to continue life in our society.

EarthLink - Top NewsMEDFORD, New York (AP) — Police on Wednesday arrested a 33-year-old man in the shooting deaths of four people at a pharmacy during a weekend painkiller robbery.
David Laffer was taken in handcuffs from his home in Medford, about a mile and a half (1.6 kilometers) from the crime scene, earlier in the day. Jack Eddington, chairman of the county legislature's public safety committee, confirmed the arrest Wednesday afternoon.
About 30 to 40 officers converged on the home before bringing Laffer out, said Peter Spano, who was working on the lawn next door. A woman was also escorted out of the brown and yellow ranch-style house.
Spano said the "distraught" man taken from the home resembled the suspect shown in surveillance photos, except without a beard.
Zaida Ayala, a longtime neighbor, said the suspect in the photos didn't look like Laffer, who is "a guy that I feel comfortable with. A guy that I could be out, 1 o'clock in the morning in my backyard, and he could be in his backyard and I wouldn't run inside and go get my husband."
Distraught over being caught maybe.Spano said the "distraught" man taken from the home resembled the suspect shown in surveillance photos, except without a beard.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
