I take it that Allison is a regular here. Can she really be this stupid? Dennis Prager (probably hated by Allison) once pointed out that a liberal does not believe in the existence of evil until it is personally experienced. He was referring specifically to a South American liberal politician who was held captive for a year by a band of thugs, and who didn't believe people could be so cruel until she was the target. I suspect Allison will refuse to believe in "roaming gangs of criminals" until she is personally accosted, and finds out that police do their work AFTER the crime is committed. And where in the world, Allison, do you come up with the idea that guns disappear for criminals when they disappear for ordinary people? My god!!
