One of the things that I see in the background

 is a show about repossessing stuff, boats and airplanes particular. I repossessed a boat once but I won't post about it here. All I will say is that it was a wet, wild, scary three day ride. 

I wasn't paid for it, either. It was one of those things you do because it was the right thing to do. My payment arrived a year or so later in the form of a post card from the Solomon Islands. I had helped a guy live his dreams and that was reward enough in itself.

Let's leave it at that.

In other news there is a story in the news where two guy with handgun permits killed each other. Of course, the people that predicted Dodge City are gloating over it but they forgot a couple of details. One of the guys was the agrressor and the other was defending himself.

That reduces the number of illegals involved to one.

There is also the rest of the story. If you figure that as of a couple years ago there were six million people licensed to carry firearms and that the number has increased there along with a few other states that have loosened the laws it's likely over seven million people licensed to carry. (update: Nine million as of now) 

Add to that the entire population over the age of 21 that reside in constitutional carry states where no permit is required to carry.

One guy with a permit committed a murder and the other seven million licensees plus the populations of four states behaved themselves, I'd say that is a lot less of a murder rate than the rest of the people in the country can boast about.

On the other hand, Chicago has arguably the most restrictive gun laws in the country and yesterday I read where it was reported to be the murder capital of the entire country.

Go figure.

To find out why the blog is pink just cut and paste this:

  1. And last night in Chicago, gang bangers shot 13 people including a 3 year old. Those tough gun laws are really working for them.
