An Armed Society

Is a polite society. So said Robert Heinlein.
I do believe he was correct.
Chicago, gun free-est zone in the world - murder capital of the U.S. continues to devolve.
With a little more work they can catch up to Detroit Wayne County.*

  1. Sometimes I think we choose to focus on the wrong part of that quote. Not that it isn't accurate but the second part is even more telling in my opinion.

    "Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life"

    Note the emphasis on "back up his acts" -- it is one thing to have words but when the situation involves action; then especially is it important to be superbly correct in manners. For me this goes along with the maxim -- "What you do speaks so loud, I can not hear your words".

    I completely disagree with the Police Chief; it isn't a tragedy -- it is horrific and atrocious crime -- see earlier words about actions.
