PSH From Cleveland Media

I haven’t seen Pant Shitting Hysterics like this from the media for at least several days:

If the current law forbids guns in public spaces such as government buildings, then that ban should equally apply to other public spaces such as parks. Yes, bad guys can carry guns into parks, but that doesn’t mean we’ll all be safer if everyone carries a gun in a park. The more guns per square foot anywhere, the chances are someone innocent will be hurt or killed.

Also, it is hard to imagine anyone needing a 90-shot machine gun for self-protection — or even its semi-automatic cousin which is nearly as deadly. On a neighborhood scale, that’s a weapon of mass destruction, and common sense dictates that a city has a right to protect its citizens from such guns, even if state legislators lack the sense to do so.

A civilized society does not need or want handguns in its parks or assault rifles on its streets.

Nearly as deadly?  Says who?  I don’t really need my city to protect me from “such guns”, because last I checked, they don’t sneak out and night and cause mass mayhem on the streets.  Whoever wrote this needs to confront their irrational fear of firearms before they pontificate as experts on the subject of firearm deadliness and crime reduction.

    By that logic, police stations are the most dangerous places you could go.

    I could’ve sworn they were even more deadly…

    Okay, that made me chuckle.

    Nah — shooting ranges, gun stores, and federal armories. They have to keep the floors covered in sawdust, in those places.

    We are? Third-graders planning to kill their teacher? Birth control pills for 11 years olds because they cannot rise above the level of rutting animals? MTV entertainment? Rampant drug abuse and violent crime in substantial portions of urban areas?

    There is nothing civilized about drug dealers, killers, rapists and muggers. As long as they exist, we will only have a civilized society in certain places at certain times. And none of those will be immune to the intrusion of evil if it chooses to come knocking.
