    Roanoke, breaking news

    http://www.wset.com/story/18150881/p...gun-in-roanoke

    A very short story with no details, but the way it reads initially is that a man had a gun in the park. Working on trying to determine if this is a county park or city park. As followers may know, Roanoke has a history of violating preemption and ignoring the VA statutes in favor of their own interpretations.

    I'll post some more as I figure it out, or as others figure it out.

    The converse may be true that there exists another legit reason for the MWAG article.
    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    That was short-lived but fun.

    Gang gun of choice

    " police seized seven shotguns and five hunting rifles"

    I can kind of understand the shotguns but how many gang members in Chesapeake run around with hunting rifles? Do they know something we don't? Are they planning a hunting expedition soon?
