It is the job of the police to fill out forms and attempt to apprehend, not stop criminals. That is why YOU are your own First Responder.
As a citizen of Illinois, i must disagree; you must be among those who, unsurprisingly, regard Illinois as all-Chicago. This is not the case. Outside of Cook and the collar counties, free people own and use arms. Having had a 90-minute response time for a "hot burglary" at my house I can tell you it's strongly supported by downstate law enforcement as well.

A $9 Million Wedding

As a middle-aged man 26 years married to his only wife, working in a predominantly female profession (nursing), my experience has been that if folks would spend half as much energy and commitment to their marriage as they do to "the show" wedding they would be much better off. It would be a good start.

The IRS I Know and Love

As a rule, i pretty much liked George H.W. Bush, but there were areas we differed; high on the list was his direction of the IRS to focus on smaller companies and individuals of lesser means, as there would be a greater return on time/money invested due to the inability of such to buy high-priced help. And without high-priced help, we are sitting ducks.
Gee, I feel better; they've provided 100 pages of "irrelevant" info.
One of the first thoughts that popped into my head with the AP issue was, "Now the press will get a sense of what gun-owners have been fighting for generations". Now lo and behold, Dickie Durbin wants the .gov to register the press, too. Interesting.

How to buy a semi-automatic handgun

I'm in the camp that believes that the individual should have tried a variety of different handguns before taking the leap; some may prefer the S&W M&P line, others Glock, H&K, etc. Ruger makes a dandy 9mm lately-since this column was first out-- with a .40 in the stable as well. Grateful we have the choices and the 2A!
The Left can be right a hundred times and it's not a scary situation... but the Right need only be right once for this to get real serious. And to think they actually believe it's just this once?!?

His ipinion is simply that; and like the anus, most folks have them, and they often stink.
Free speech is all well and good; poor taste and feeding into the template is poor judgement. I would hope for more civil discourse from TH commenters. Carry on.
