Out of the Blue

After a few days using those belly belts to control the Gunnar-man's marking have been successful at keeping him from peeing on the stove, though it's not for lack of trying: Leaving him to his own devices results in a wet "diaper" every time. I'm hopeful that he will eventually grow weary of failing to mark the stove and/or walking around in a soggy belly belt, but so far that's not the case, and with his remarkable adaptability, this may never happen, but at least we have the mess under control for the moment, and that adaptability is showing through in just how little he is bothered by having to wear it.

If there were 10 armed citizens in there, I bet not ONE of them wold realize the other 9 were there. You have never been in a stressful/heightened situation. You tunnel, they would have eliminated the threat and a lot less people would have died. They all would have focused on 1 thing - the crazy man shooting people.

I carry everywhere. Did before I was a cop, will after I retire. I am a sheep dog. I watch over the sheep.

When most people hear gunfire, they run FROM it.
When sheep dogs hear gunfire, they run TO it.

My mentality is necessary in an evil world. A sheep will never understand why I protect them under even the greatest of odds. That is why I am on this planet. To protect you when you cower in the corner. I just shake my head at the cop haters. You can hate all you want, but when you need help, I am the first one you call. When you mom stops breathing, I drive as fast as I can to get there to try and save her, putting in the back of my mind you fought with me last week, and took a swing at my head with a chair and threw you in jail. But now you need my help, I am going to do whatever I can to save your mom.....

Bats, if you're a cop, than I WANT YOU to be armed. But since you've been most likely in difficult situations, you do know that 10 guns in a room are 10 problems. And I am talking about a situation where at least one guy draws his gun, not one where all sit there, armed, enjoying some popcorn and a movie. A theatre with maybe 20 armed people is a disaster to happen, if only one of these guys is a looney. Bats, do armed people run away? Or do some of them turn into John Wayne wannabes who want to duke it out? And what is the outcome? Are these trained people like you who can assess the situation under stress? Most likely not. Which means: 1 looney with a gun, maybe 3, 4, or 5 other people drawing, too. And when the bullets fly, who will they shoot at? Only the looney who is shouting "I AM THE BAD GUY, SHOOT ME" or at everyone with a gun?

Again, more armed civilians is no means to stop lunatic armed civilians (or even veterans, like the idiot who shot the people at the Sikh temple). More of something that is wrong does not make it right, it makes it even more wrong. Police officers should be the only people to wear arms, everybody else should keep them at home.

But, guys, this is just my opinion. If you think else, it's alright to me. What I just don't understand is this almost "allergical" reaction to an idea like "keep your guns at home or at the shooting range". Different mentality, I guess. I don't expect North Corea and Iran to invade the US soon, so I don't think I need to start my private arms race.
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
