    Now THIS is a pro gun news article

    I'm a little surprised they published this...but man is it good.

    http://detnews.com/article/20110821/...-want-of-a-gun

    Defenders of the Second Amendment couldn't have asked for a greater gift than the spectacle of unarmed policemen and defenseless citizens standing by helplessly while rampaging hordes of youths burned London and beat up and murdered innocent residents.

    *********************************

    In the 10 years since Michigan liberalized its concealed carry law, more than a quarter million residents have received weapons permits, without the predicted rise in gun violence.

    But there has been an increase in the number of citizens trained and prepared to protect their communities from falling into anarchy.

    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I say Englands government needs to be hanged.Simple as that,any government that would disarm its citizens and prosecute them for defending themselves is not right. They are saying hey the criminals can do what they want to you and you cant defend yourself,and if you do oh you better watch out your arse is in deep doo doo.

    I read an article just today (but cannot find it) about video showing rioters shooting at un-armed police. Crying shame; you have to admire the kind of brass it takes to be a cop in merry olde England.

    A rhetorical answer to a rhetorical question!

    I think what he means in the line, "But there has been an increase in the number of citizens trained and prepared to protect their communities from falling into anarchy.", is actually "chaos", not anarchy. In any case, there is a large difference between anarcho-capitalists (economic and social liberty) and social anarchists (closet communists). If he does indeed mean to say, "anarchy", it's not clear which end he is warning against. Although, given Finley's conservative leanings, I would have to speculate it's the latter.
