A man was shot to death in the parking lot of a St. Louis Elementary School this morning.  School was held anyway, because it’s just another shooting on school grounds.  They happen all the time in the United States.  Luckily for the children, counselors were on hand to “assist” any who may have been traumatized, and the school’s window shades were pulled to prevent students from viewing the dead body lying on the asphalt.

Business as usual.

As I’m sure you know, several Illinois state representatives are begging for the National Guard to be deployed to put down the gun violence in Chicago.  In various neighborhoods, armed gangs rule the streets in a wave of lawless gun violence previously unseen in the United States.

How in the world did they get all those guns?

Charles Alan Wilson, 63, had a conceal and carry permit from the State of Washington.  When he threatened to kill Senator Patty Murray in voice mail messages, he pointed out that he has a permit to carry a .38 and that “it only takes one piece of lead.”

In recent court action, U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Tsuchida ordered that Mr. Wilson must not possess any guns.  Kinda late don’t ya’ think?  In America, we pass out the guns first, then we find out who the nuts are the hard way.  The real stupidity is that government is supposed to protect its citizens.
