And patriot1 can think of Dakota's death penalty as a late late late late term abortion, and chain him/herself to the door of the courthouse to prevent it.
Sure, Dave. You should totally check yourself into jail so you can get some free ice cream!
That's the problem, Sailorman. It's hard to keep stray bullets confined.
I perused the Criminal Justice report and I don't see your point. I see dramatic decreases in all crime since 1990.
I can't imagine anyone finds a raped and strangled woman morally superior to one who protects herself.
My point is this: I don't think the answer to building a safe neighborhood is encouraging everyone to tote a gun into restaurants and bars. If that's what it takes to live life safely, then you should consider moving to a different place or working with your neighbors/police department to change things.
Why are you guys so obsessed with taking your guns everywhere? Is Chattanooga that dangerous? Maybe you should move somewhere safe like New York City. They're setting records with the lowest murder rates of the century and only the criminals have guns there!
