Ok Ok I know but yesterday was first football Sunday of the year so cut me some slack. I thought we’d discuss every bodies favorite topic Guns. Now we know the candidates are talking about assault rifle buy backs and back ground checks. I don’t think much of that will change much and here’s why. There are 393,347,000 guns in the US of these only 1,073,743 are registered. That leaves 392,273,257 pretty much unaccounted for. That’s ore than one gun for every person in the US. Now do you thik we can get control of all of them without violence? If you do I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn just for you. I have no idea what to do about gun crime except to make it a Death Penalty, no appeal crime to use a gun for illegal purposes. Now we all know that won’t happen just like the peaceful surrender of all assault rifles ain’t going to happen. I understand the outrage I’ve personally witnessed a person shot dead in the street. He was shot by a police officer that was riding in my car. I had to testify as to what I had seen before a grand jury, but that’s another story for another day. Seeing someone shot in combat or on the streets is no picnic so yes I understand the outrage, but outrage after the fact does nothing for the victims. We’ve always been a culture of guns and war whether we want to admit it or not. I like you and others say something needs to be done but speaking, for myself, haven’t got a clue what should be done. I do know this doing nothing will only make the situation worse. This is Flounder and Fats saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
