Boomsticks: If you haven't already done so...

...go read the Weekly Check On The Bias over at Alphecca. It's a good 'un this week.

There's some drollery regarding various of the Northeastern S.S.R's frantically trying to scapegoat adjacent free states as the causes of their criminal ills, while conveniently avoiding mention of the fact that said free states don't seem to share the same problem, despite being the source of "easily available guns". (This always used to confuse me while noshing on my late night dinner and watching Law & Order reruns: If those "easily available guns" in Virginia or Georgia are causing all the problems in NYC, shouldn't Virginia and Georgia be ankle-deep in blood?)

Also, he hits on the recent "Oh My God! The Chicks Are Packing Heat!" "Women And Guns" article that's been recently mentioned at SayUncle and TFS Magnum.

Not that the latter is a hot-button topic with me or anything, but I feel a rant coming on. Watch this space.

They make it sound like something new; my mom has kept a baby Browning handy for over 50 years.

I have often wondered why, since it's common knowledge that guns cause immediate and total carnage, bodies aren't piled high around gun shops, with the piles getting smaller as one moves farther from the Evil Emporiums of Death. One would think that it would be impossible to survive in places like Springfield, MA for more than a few seconds.

I'm baffled.....

OH, and by the way - re: link story - that's why the people from states around Massachussetts call them Massholes. True story.
