    Could the source of that statement be any more vague? I think not.

    The article starts "Feinstein and Boxer Ask Californians to Lay Down Their Weapons During Statewide Manhunt

    (PP)- As an ex-Los Angeles police officer killed three people and went on a deadly shooting rampage in a vendetta to punish those he attributed for his firing, California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer pleaded for calm, and asked both law enforcement and civilians to lay down their weapons.

    An intense manhunt for Christopher Dorner that aroused fear across several states and Mexico focused late Thursday on Big Bear Lake, about 80 miles east of Los Angeles, where police found a burned-out pickup truck that belonged to the ex-military and former police officer Dorner.

    Throughout the day, Senators Feinstein and Boxer made desperate pleas for their California constituents to turn in their guns and not confront the crazed gunman because this would be a perfect test of their anti-gun proposals."

    So it is colored somewhat by the situation, still kind of off, but the context does matter!

    Another nut with a gun.........http://www.abclocal.go.com/wpvi/stor...cal&id=8988226

    This happened this a.m. about 30 miles north of here in the New Castle County Court House. How did this nut case get thru security with a gun - if there was a security check - and I can't imagine there not being one as you enter the building. When I filed my divorce papers some years ago in Family Court locally in Dover (Kent County), I went thru a security check right inside the front door!!! I'm baffled......

    This Thursday, my son has to testify in a case at the Kent County Court House. I think he should go dressed in full body armor!

    Why would the people be in danger when this Dorner has targeted uniformed PD?

    Feinstein and Boxer are lacking the basic sense of what the 'little people' are about and keep getting elected because people 'know' who they are.

    ------------------

    I guess the two women in that truck the cops fired up should have been more careful and confronted the police in such a careless and reckless manner.....

    IF anything that goes to the problem of hiring trigger happy people to the police force.

    One thing that has amazed me about the media coverage of the rogue ex-cop is the absence of the "Anti-gun" talk on the air.

    This nutball is a 'product' of the same system meant to protect us.


    So, do we look the other way and ignore the fact that even the people 'trained' to serve and protect are just as apt to become unhinged?

    -------------------------

    Chris Matthews on the coverage of the standoff - his question to another talking head - "He has an automatic weapon, what does that mean?'

    It means you don't need the clutch to use it.


    ------------------------

    If is was some punk cop killer you can bet that dianee feenstein, nutsy pelosi and baba boxer would be screaming from the top of the capitol buildings that "Criminals are loose with weapons of mass destruction!!!!"

    What do they have to say now?

    This mutton head has killed 4 people, wounded 3 more - he put the LAPD an edge so they go on and shoot up a truck with two women delivering newspapers in the A.M.?

    The only people that I don't fear of being armed is me.

    I know what end is up and what I'd shoot at.

    There have now been two arrests in this case, which has made the national news. Two gang members were arrested. It's thought that Hadiya and the group of kids she was with were mis-identified by the shooters as members of a rival gang. The CPD Superintendent attributed the arrests to "good police work".

    So, again, nothing changes. Two more young African American men will probably go to prison for a long time for this. But it's not likely to decrease the overall incidence of gun violence related to gang membership in Chicago. Could someone please do something to get the guns out of the hands of the wrong people. I know that in the past white people have looked the other way when the perps and the victims are non-white. This case is different, though. Everyone is saying something must change immediately if not sooner.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!

    Sadly, the political will to make significant change in the "gangsta" culture just doesn't exist.

    It's not something that DC can toss together a piece of legislation, trot out to the Rose Garden for a presser and a signing ceremony, and be done.

    Therefore, it isn't going to happen.

    People have been making fire arms as a hobby from the beginning. Now you can print your own AR lower.
