Another mass shooting in America the other week. More discussion in the quieter and safer Tavern.
Every year for the past how many has seen a massacre of innocents by a gunman. Every year for the past how many, a President has led a demand for
more gun control.
Hey guys. The latest was in the most gun-controlled city in America.
On a military base.
On a military base where the soldiers and sailors are not allowed to have live bullets.
The news show pundits all screamed 'right-wing nut'. We could hear them right over here.
Hey guys. Every one of the last lot, including the latest, going right back to the nutter who shot the senator lady Gabrielle Gifford, was known to be a left-wing voter and supporter of Obama. But heck, let's not shout that one around.
And were the gunmen the sort of people you would consider sane?
Sane people don't go around shooting innocent bystanders going about their lawful occasions. (nor do sane people vote socialist, for that matter)
So why call for a ban on sane, reasonable people having guns? Those millions of sane people don't go around shooting innocent bystanders.
And let's be clear ... there are millions of sane people with guns who have never let a thought of mass murder (on their part) enter their minds.
Let's hear from some clear minds stumbling over the rocky problem.
OK. Distasteful, isn't it. Not the three speakers, but the need to call a spade a spade.
Meanwhile in another country in a distant continent far, far away, more nutters invade a shopping centre.
And who is the hero of the day?
Why, its a chap with a gun.
HEY, ANTI-GUN IDIOTS: Off-duty soldier with handgun saved 100 lives as Muslim terrorists ran amok in Kenyan Mall
A former (British) marine emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.
The ex soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday.
With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex.
His story emerged as sporadic gunfire continued to ring out from inside the mall early today as Kenyan security forces battled Al Qaeda-linked terrorists into a fourth day.
Despite Kenyan police assurances that they had taken control of the building, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 hostages were still being held by a band of attackers, possibly as many as 13.
The former soldier is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire.
A friend in Nairobi said: ‘What he did was so heroic. He was having coffee with friends when it happened.
‘He went back in 12 times
and saved 100 people'.
Imagine going back in when you knew what was going on inside.’

Enough to sully the mind and damage the soul. Or lift it up.
So, while the three above - and we - go back and forth over the problem, tip-toeing through the minefield, let's have some healing balm. Ladies going back and forth on tip toe.
Let's drink to the ladies. Keep your guns holstered.
Let me hear your considered view over a long, cool, one.
