Ah, it’s the day after Thanksgiving and the airwaves are filled with tales of disfunctional families.

    I didn’t know what to make of this story until I saw that little smiling girl sitting at the piano and it just broke my heart. I guess it will sort itself out one way or another but that’s one pretty sad story.

    Well, if he had been using a carving knife, icepick or machete instead of a gun — in a house full of 17 people — then I think he would have been apprehended or at least unsuccessful in a quadruple murder. But as long as you can buy guns in drive-thru stores in Florida (and elsewhere), this will happen again and again. Face it, guns make it easy for unstable people to kill good people.

    to Red: YOU ‘face it’ — the highest rates of murder by firearms are in states and cities with the strictest gun controls.

    Weasel Boy –
    What is your take on this? I have access to guns, knives, forks, bats, cars, golf clubs (Sorry Tiger), and a whole bunch of other stuff, but I never hurt anybody. Ok, except maybe in their wallet. But that was a mistake.
    People who kill people are nuts. End of story. It’s not because they have guns. If they didn’t they would kill them some other way. Chris has a gun, and he can’t shoot a Bambi while it licks his nose. Guns aren’t the problem. Nut jobs are.
    Your Pal,
    Walt

      It wasn’t my nose he was licking, Walt, which is why I had such a hard time twisting around to get a good shot. But I’m going back next week. You know that joke that circulated on Wall Street in the late 80’s about the bear hunter and Mr. Bear? “You aren’t really here to hunt bear, are you?”
