I happen to have the local evening news on this week while in Chicago and the station did a poll in relation to a story related to gun violence and gun laws. I don't remember the exact question but the sense of it was, "Do you think we need more gun laws?" The results were that more than 70% said that more gun laws WOULD NOT help. WOW! I figured Chicago being what it was it would be the other way around.
Secondly, I was shocked at how many local law enforcement were carrying what looked to be older S&W model 19's. Every one of the officers I saw carrying them looked to be in their 50's or older. On the other end of the spectrum I did see a younger guy with a stainless 1911...probably a Para LDA.
Anywho...just thought I would share!
