from the article:
"With the slaying Tuesday of Trooper David Shawn Blanton Jr. during a traffic stop on Interstate 40, that deadly trend continues, said criminologists at Western Carolina University.
'The South is not only the Bible Belt. Unfortuntately, its the Gun Belt,' said Lisa Briggs, Lisa Briggs, a professor in Westerns department of applied criminology."
So, I guess Obama had it right, guns 'n' bibles.

Well to be quite honest, Lisa Briggs and Obama are right.

yeah, it sucked watching him have to defend that comment, because it is so totally correct - but of course, no one wants to hear about their drawbacks.

Good for the reporter for finding a way to give some depth to the usual polic blotter "staff reports" the Citizen-Times relies on.

Guns aren't the problem. Twisted sick people are....
Many more law abiding good citizens are becoming legally armed. I'm one. Whenever I see a traffic stop I look very closely for any sign of trouble the officer can't handle. I'd help in any way if I was needed. There are way too many wackos out there- don't know how we fix that.

Didn't you know: Everyone is entitled to have an uzi sub-machine gun and several automatic weapons...
...in the car
...maybe keep a few at work and a few at home!
What could possibly go wrong?
The "gun nuts" love to quote the 2nd Amendment, but they always leave out the first part which clearly indicates, to me anyway, that the writers' intent was to speak of something similar to the National Guard: "A well regulated militia."
I guess if everyone could also have a nuclear weapon, we would all be EVEN MORE SAFE!
