28 People Killed By Police While Holding BB Guns.

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/dec/29/28-people-killed-bb-pellet-guns-police-tamir-rice#comments

The comments in the comment section reflect on some Irish/English history from a past era.

Apparently the media's mind tricks are working.

This is exactly the reaction that's expected.

May the farce be with you.

California gun laws?

I've looked up gun laws in California. Hi capacity clips and detachable mags were banned years ago. How did the shooters in San Bernardino get illegal California firearms? Did they buy them over the Internet? Where did they get the bomb materials? Did they have handgun permits? The information is not complete.

Chilling Details Revealed In Chicago Boy's Murder

http://abcnews.go.com/US/chilling-details-revealed-bond-hearing-suspect-tyshawn-lees/story?id=35454416
"Morgan is a convicted felon, and was out on bond on a gun charge when he was arrested, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said at a news conference Friday morning, describing him as having an "extensive violent criminal history who likely shouldn't have been on the streets."

I've never been a fan of living in the larger cities. I've always been terrified that law enforcement is overwhelmed and can't adequately protect people.

So I'm working out of a hotel this week.

I discovered Fox News Channel is right between the Cartoon Network Channel and Animal Planet. Someone at Time Warner has a wicked sense of dark humor.

46,471: Drug Overdoses

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/dea-drug-overdoses-kill-more-americans-car-crashes-or-firearms

My sister sent me the above article.

I went to a community outreach program in September at my local high school. Last year 3 local high school kids OD'd on heroin. Another OD'd on prescription drugs stolen from his parents medicine cabinet. Those were the 4 that died. Several more ended up in the hospital. The local sheriff breaks up underage drinking parties every weekend some with up to 100 kids. Over the years we've lost local kids to DWI. I cried in the car afterwards, worried if I've been keeping a close enough tab on my kids without smothering them.

Are we losing a generation?
