    What does Tiger Woods story tell us about 'gun control'?

    Tiger Woods is in the rough. As a Republic in danger of losing itself continues ignoring important issues in favor of celebrity obsession, salacious and intrusive stories continue to dominate the headlines and captivate the increasingly prurient heirs of Liberty.

    OK, but what does that have to do with "gun control"?

    In the Woods case, there have been reports that wife Elin Nordegren assaulted him, scratching his face and going after him with a golf club. That's illegal--it's even a federal crime that can result in being designated a "prohibited person" as far as owning firearms are concerned. If the charges were to be proven, she would be in violation of the Lautenberg "domestic violence" edict, and thus forever barred from possessing the means of defense.

    So while Lautenberg claims he wrote it "to protect women and children by keeping spousal and child abusers from owning guns," in this case, especially if the marriage were to dissolve, this woman and her children would be mandated to be defenseless.

    True, Ms. Nordegren can well afford the finest security money can buy, but most women don't have a potential $300 Mil settlement to factor into the equation.

    So I have a question for you. If it could be proven that Elin Nordegren committed an act of domestic violence, should she be arrested, tried, convicted and forever barred from gun ownership--just like someone of lesser wealth and status could be? Take today's poll and let me know what you think.

    She should be treated just like everyone else!!!!

    Golf clubs should be on the list of no no for her also.

    Reported by one rag she had knocked a tooth from his mouth as well using a golf club. But that item was run under and over the next day by info that a second and then third associate had come to the fore.

    She will see no charges never mind conviction of anything.
    The police have already closed their case on this.

    She's a celeb, and celebs are America's Royalty and our good-will ambassadors to the rest of the world.

    As celebs:

    (1) They should be able to stand behind their armed guards and lecture us about how guns don't make anyone safer.
    (2) They should be able to be trouble-makers in their private life, but lecture us long and loud on 'world peace'.
    (3) They should be able to wear $ 3,000.00 jeans while explaining why people shouldn't be materialistic.
    (4) They should be able to live in secluded, private areas while preaching about 'redistribution' and 'being open'.

    We should admire celebs not just for how they entertain, but also for how they teach.

    If convicted, she should lose her gun rights under current law.

    Yup. Won't be, though. That's almost a certainty.

    If the portion of the rumors that seems most credible turns out to be true, then she attacked him with a deadly weapon and she herself was not attacked or provoked Based on this, it seems clear she committed a felony.

    District Attorney from the Florida county of her residence: what are you doing about it, if this is true?

    Frankly I am on her side considering what he has done. I wouldn't treat her different, but I would not blame any wife under siimilar circumstances.

    However, I have to give some credit to Tiger. He could have filed charges against her, but he didn't. Instead, he allowed himself to come under scrutiny for the car wreck.

    In the end, I think Tiger protected his wife from being arrested for domestic abuse.

    What Tiger did was despicable. But at least he saved his wife from the ordeal of being arrested.

    So for that, I give Tiger a

    If convicted? Of what? She wasn't charged with anything, no one complained. Did you hear Tiger calling 911? No.
    There is no case.

    Always be aware of where your shots are aimed, and potential harm.
    A/D? Not in this case.
