We’re nearing the conclusion of a year that’s seen roughly one mass shooting per day in the United States, and all kinds of theories have been dragged out to explain their frequency. It’s the precarious state of mental-health treatment. It’s the violence of video games, television, and movies. It’s the huge number of guns – something like 300 million – floating around. It’s gun shows and lax regulations.

Among them? A controversial assault weapons ban sponsored in the S.C. House by Democrat Wendell Gilliard (H. 4440) – and in the State Senate by Marlon Kimpson (S. 939). Both of those bills seek to reprise the federal government’s failed assault weapons ban – which expired in 2004.

At least two intruders entered 83-year-old Harry Wells’ Houston home on Monday night ready to fill up a car with his Christmas gifts, including a flat screen TV, rifle and mounted deer head, investigators said.

The suspects nearly wound up filled with lead.

One of Wells’ neighbors surprised the crooks and fired five shots – enough to scare them off without anything to show for their Grinch-like behavior, KHOU reported.

The burglars nearly left on Monday in Wells’ car. That’s where they were stuffing their bounty when they were confronted by the neighborhood Good Samaritan. In their haste to flee, the thieves hit another neighbors’ car.

Taylor says he prefiled the bill to make it a little cheaper for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks. — Thomas Jefferson, Encyclopedia of T. Jefferson, 318, Foley, Ed., reissued 1967.
