Dumbest thing I've seen in a while from the ljworld. I hope our super high sunflower bills don't pay for this crap, we all know the steps

Good grief. How many stories do you have to do on the same subject?

If you are not in law enforcement or the armed forces and you carry a gun, then you are a paranoid wimp.end of story.

The .22 has been used in more assassinations worldwide than any other caliber.

These stories "can" be informative if everything is researched correctly and presented fairly. Unfortunately, in my humble opinion both as a reader and a former News Director. This has really been over kill (sorry no pun intended) on the part of the LJW. The paper clearly has an agenda beyond educating and informing the public. Too much "opinion" has been added which harms the journalistic value of the stories.

Here is how some of the comments will go:guns = safety = tools = men's privates = name calling in general;We will hear from Robert Marble soon, and he will call those opposed to guns "bedwetting liberals;"I'll say I don't own and don't want to own a gun, but support others' right to own, and that I support the concept of training for all;Marion will misread my comments and call me bad names;"Guns don't kill people ... but they help;" etc., etc."Nazis ... Australia ... statistics and murder rates ... Obama will take your guns ... McCain will pander to NRA lobbyists;" etc., etc.,And it won't make one bit of difference. Somebody shot the horse. It is dead. Next.
