Item: Indy mayor Greg Ballard is unambiguous enough on 2nd Amendment issues as to actually get a table at the local gun show to press flesh with
voters that own gunsshooters.
Item: New hiree, public safety director Frank Straub, opined that "...we have way too many guns on the street and way too many people that own guns."
Item: There was a bit of a stink.
Item: Frank Straub was backpedalling furiously on page A1 of today's Indianapolis Cat Box Liner, saying "Uh, I meant illegal guns."
For some reason I'm getting these mental images involving Ballard saying, in a Slim Pickens voice, "What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is a'goin' on here? I hired you to be the public safety director, not to piss off the NRA!" I'll bet Frank's still having difficulty sitting down.
