"Two high-profile shootings in two days – one at an elementary school near Bremerton and the other along a state highway that left a State Trooper dead – have given anti-gunners the launch pad they invariably look for to demand stronger gun laws."

"KOMO Radio’s Ken Schram, with whom this writer chatted live during the noon hour Thursday, wants to hold the parents of the 9-year-old suspect in the school shooting responsible for his bringing a gun to school. For the record, this column doesn't think Schram is a dedicated anti-gunner, but he wants to mandate that everyone who purchases a handgun also be required by law to purchase a gun safe. That was before anyone knew where the youngster actually got the gun ..." ...
 

Is it 'racist' to seek to avoid high crime areas?

"In American socio-political discourse today, there are few charges more damaging than, 'That's racist!' (or, 'You are racist!'). That in itself is not a bad thing--bigots should be pilloried and shunned. The problem is that the very effectiveness of that particular rhetorical weapon is enough to present a temptation to use it even where no plausible case for racism exists."

"This sometimes manifests itself in odd ways. Consider, for example, a developmental Microsoft smart phone app designed to help users avoid high crime areas. According to a CBS News report, that is seen by some to be 'racist':" ...

In fact, she was the one that talked first about getting her CHL, which got me interested in the whole idea of guns for self defense. What do you do, when you become interested in a subject about which you know next-to-nothing? I can’t speak for anybody else, but the first thing I do is read – I read everything I can get my hands on ... And when we’re talking about a subject that involves the possibility of inflicting bodily harm if not used as directed, the last thing I want to do is to go off half-cocked, as it were.

"What the NRA describes as a 'pro-Second Amendment provision' is legislation that prohibits the Defense Department from 'collecting or recording any information relating to the otherwise lawful acquisition, possession, ownership, carrying, or other use of a privately owned firearm.' In short, the amendment, signed into law ... in January 2011, bars commanders from even questioning their troops about privately-owned firearms kept off-base." ...
