" Criminals know not that many people are willing or allowed to defend themselves with a firearm in this state. This fact emboldens them in their actions."
You do have evidence of that statement, right? Otherwise the basic premise of your argument is your opinion and that's all.

Surely Princetown is the clown car of local politics.

And btw, 35000?!? I guess that's acceptable?

Predictably you pull statistics randomly out of your...hat.
It's apples and oranges the way you present them. Accidental shootings (however that's defined, you don't say) are committed by individuals. The total number of guns has no relationship to that. What ever happened to 'guns don't kill, people do'? Guess it's not a convenient time for that logic.

Young Mr. Morrill, who clearly hasn't had much exposure to the real world, would do well to look at the families who've been traumatized by accidental shootings and the suicides or impulsive shootings that might have been avoided if the means weren't so readily available.
Mr. Morrill, if you're reading this, ask yourself who in their right mind would attempt to bring a loaded firearm onto an airplane these days, then look up today's news of what the TSA has reported; that in 2014 over 2000 guns were discovered in carry-on luggage, 83% loaded. It's damn scarey, scarier than anything these loons might be afraid of, that so many "right minded" individuals possess guns.
An armed society is most definitely not a polite, or safe, society. Hopefully age will teach you that.

Mr. Lorey laid his incompetency and dereliction bare in his handling of the Ed Lakata fatality. He has no business in law enforcement except to be the subject of said scrutiny. That's not grinding an axe, I didn't know Mr. Lakata, but he bizarrely made no secret of his inability to process an accident scene. What else is he incapable of?

You probably should have stopped at "Only God has the keys to answer these questions...".

Three knuckleheads mess up some vending machines at a laundromat but no mention of the Friday night armed hold-up of the Country Wine and Liquor on Mariaville Road?
