    Good post.

    btw - tell your friends that the Mythbusters have put the lie to the "Shoot out the airplane window, get sucked out" myth!

    I recently had a similar experience myself. I'm a truck driver and I was making a delivery at one of my customers and while my customer and I were having our daily conversation about the B.S. that is Chicago politics, one of my customer's customers walked up and said that he too thought Chicago was a shithole. I made the remark that if I am ever robbed and injured in Chicago I am suing the city for denying me the ability to protect myself. The gentleman who walked up then said 'Well, one thing I have to give Daley credit for is suing the gun manufacturers.' My customer looked at me and grinned as if to say 'Oh ****, he just said that to the wrong guy.' I very politely asked him his reasoning for suing the manufacturer of a legal product. He said we don't need all these handguns and the gunmakers should be held accountable. I told him you can't sue carmakers for what people do with cars. He said yes you can and that Ford had been sued for all the Mavericks that blew up in the 70's. I pointed out that that was a defective product and suing was justified as it would be with a defective firearm. I reminded him that you can't sue Ford, however, if I decided to take my Ranger and drive down a city sidewalk at 45 mph and kill a bunch of pedestrians. He agreed that that would be preposterous. I then looked him squarely in the face and said that it was equally preposterous to sue a gunmaker for manufacturing a product that performed as it was designed to. He said nothing after that. Score one for the good guys!

    I'm from Chicago.

    I like to point out to people what you see when you take Amtrak into Chicago. EVERY home that can afford it has an 8' high iron fence and bars on all of the doors and windows. Growing up at 69th and Indiana Ave. in the '60s, we had the same thing, plus a steel prop rod against our front door to keep home invaders from kicking our door in. From the train coming in from Indiana, the entire way to the station looks like a prison for Black people. That's what society looks like when nobody has the right to defend themselves.

    You live in a town with a prison in it. I'm from a prison with a town in it...

    That's horrible. Sounds like what I saw in Haiti in the late 80's, except without any trains... You must be/have been, on red alert at all times in that area..

    Sounds like PR, and they are making their gun laws more strict!
