Morning News.

I got up this morning and scanned through the morning headlines. The one that leapt out at me was a local blurb of teens driving around with "BB Guns" shooting out car windows and at homes in midtown.

There's a lot of issues and thoughts I could blog about concerning this, but what scares me the most is danger. In the moment, it is very hard to distinguish a BB gun or paintball gun from a "real" gun and these asshats are running the risk of getting shot and killed for a little vandalism thrill.

It will be interesting when one of them is shot and killed... Then they will all be little Mr. Perfects... sigh

I was standing in line at the library behind a mom with two young boys. The younger, maybe 7 years old, had a very realistic toy revolver made of plastic. It's sad that my first thought was, "Damn, I hope his mother knows what she's doing by letting him play with that in public!" I'm surprised the security guards or librarians didn't say something. (Our libraries are potential victim zo...I mean GUN FREE zones...)
