Carl - where did you get the 1/2 mile range data from?
It's a gross exaggeration. While under ideal conditions no one but a select few highly trained individuals could actually hit a target at that range. Those select few shooters know that the projectile has lost about 80% of its energy at 500 yds. A half mile is 880 yards. We can go on forever debating ballistics data - it's not the point. The point is someone fed you a gross exaggeration and without any research you took their word for it and perpetuated the erroneous data. The media does this all the time to serve an antigun agenda. I always thought more highly of you than that.

Why is killing a cop or prison guard somehow different than killing a waitress or a doctor or a quality control inspector. Mr Strock you need to delve a little deeper into this and report your findings.

How about a program that takes gun USERS off the streets? Maybe a program that puts them in jail for a very long time for something as simple as possession of an illegal gun.

I find nothing charming about him. His visit is meaningless and isn't worth the disruption it causes. He should stay in DC where he belongs.

To run or to defend yourself should be a personal choice. It should not be dictated by legislation. One who stands his ground against a criminal should not be prosecuted as a criminal. NYS coddles and protects criminals. That is why we have so many of them.

While it is a bad practice to use electronic devices behind the wheel. For the state it is a TELETHON - nothing but a fund raising event.
