well, Boz showed them to you. They're a popular mode of transportation on our block, though some little legs will soon grow too long to push them.
I'm thinking of safety today, and the people who protect us, and the odd, awful story of a man who lost his hold on himself, hell only knows why. What unbearable heartbreak, that police officers die for us. How I dislike being glad that the perpetrator is dead.
I don't care what anyone says. Hand guns and automatic weapons are for murdering people. If we don't outlaw these guns, we need to change our laws about murder.
For instance: If you pass the background check, you are obviously allowed to commit murder, but who are your victims, legally speaking? Should there be priorities? Like, for example, schoolchildren are #1, law enforcement officers #2, families of the above #3, etc? Or maybe your own family gets first priority, your spouse's family second, and so on.
It's going to take Congress a long time to iron all this out.
Gratitude can't begin to describe what I feel to the officers who died, and to those who live on. That's much too simple. I am also grieving, and angry, and glad this one's over. There will be a next one, and a next one, and a next one, before we get this thing solved.
