    Another shooting in my neighborhood...

    http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/47433677.html

    In a school zone, even. Gosh, I thought it was against the law to carry a gun in a school zone!

    Anyway, I hope this fuels the need to allow good people to carry weapons for defense of their families. Unfortunately, it will likely make people want to write more ineffective laws that make no difference to the people who commit these crimes.

    A nice hobby for someone would be to identify, using the Milwaukee Journal homicide data base, how manyshooting homicides so far this year taken placein school zones.
    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    That would be agreat idea! I was thinking about just that when the Milwaukee school zone map was made availlable. Couldn't one interpose the two? It would be a great project and give serious ammo to our side of the debate.

    I'm just glad we have criminals who at least obey the no firearms in school zone law. I mean, what would happen if they [gulp] broke the law....



    I do hope the officers will be ok.

Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.” — Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002

    Or better yet how many people were have been charged with school zone violation?

    I was reading in the journal sentinel a week or two ago about Michael Lock, a big time drug dealer they caught with a loaded glock under his seat. Knowing the area he frequents, the odds that he was in a school zone are EXCEPTIONALLY high.

    The DA chose not to prosecute him for CCW or anything else.

    Isn't is nice how police are going OUT OF THEIR WAY to try to catch law-abiding citizens who are trying to meander through the rediculous gun restrictions while criminals are getting cut miles of slack for outright blatant intentional violations?

    I'll find some quotes about that Michael Locke story. Its enough to make you puke.

    I am very familiar with the Mike Lock / the preachers mob/ the body snatchers story. One of his accomplices, his uncle was on my unit. I recently had to have him placed on PC because there are family members of the victims in the institution.
    Imagine that huh, having to put one of those guys on PC.

    Even better, identify how many citations have been issued for CCW in Milwaukee. And then see how many of those people were charged with the Class 1 felony of carry within a school zone.
