I don’t normally get into political stuff on this blog, but my right to self-defense is a topic that is very important to me, and in the wake of Sandy Hook things have gotten a little crazy…
It’s a well-known fact that criminals do not and will never follow laws (only the law-abiding do), and it’s also a well-known fact that they target those who cannot defend themselves.

      I know a guy who used to work in corrections and he has always said that you would be SHOCKED to see some of the “weapons” created by inmates out of ordinary objects. So it really doesn’t make one iota of difference, and all this back and forth is just going to end up hurting a bunch of innocent people in the long run. 😦
