It would look more convincing if they let them have the guns but have Sheriff Andy make them keep the bullets in their shirt pockets.

in my fantasies I dream of being a fat do-nothing dick in uniform that everyone called "El Jefe" and all the teenagers in three counties around lived in fear of me pulling them over and confiscating their booze and drugs and girlfriends. Blackmail can be an easy gig in a status conscious small town and there's many a scheming trailer park trash willing to bed the Methodist minister and/or the banker's wife to get ahead in this world.

"Don't let me catch you with this shiat again, boys," I said and put the plastic bag three fingers thick in my pocket, nestled up like a wayward child against my .38 service revolver. I stuck my head in through the passenger window and glowered at the three of them until they looked near enough to shiatting themselves all over the interior of that cherry red camaro. "Now you boys get on out of here and go home. I don't want to catch any of you out again this time of night and you should thank me for not telling your folks what you were up to. The way I see it, you dumb farks owe me. You all owe me big-time."

Yeah....that's just how it will be one of these days. Perhaps one of you will stumble into my intricate speed trap in a few years time. Perhaps you will cuss and fuss and get beat in the kidneys until you fork over the dough to leave my jail and my county and never come back again.

You'll see.

bigfatdave: OBBN: Why would failure to pay child support be any reason to prevent someone from carrying a firearm? I mean sure, you should be held accountable for your child support, but what does it have to do with guns?

A significant fraction of "felons" prohibited from legally purchasing one class of weapon were convicted of non-violent crimes.

In general, if someone can't be trusted with a firearm, they shouldn't be driving (or doing a large number of things in public) ... but the idiots running our court systems and prisons fail to understand anything beyond "ooh ooh - gunz scary - gunz bad" ... they refuse to even acknowledge the concept of "dangerous people" as they fixate on "dangerous weapons"


As far as the article goes one of the following three options is my guess:
1- the town doesn't feel that their two law enforcement officers need firearms to do their job
- or -
2- the town hasn't gotten around to replacing these two
- or -
3- the town plans to arm them anyway through some kind of "government says it is OK" policy

Treat violent criminals differently than non-violent ones? Don't look now, but you are starting to sound like of of those ...pardon my language...liberals.
Any more of this so-called "reasonable" talk from you, and we'll have to move you to Berkley, and make you grow a ponytail.

But then, Sheriff Andy didn't carry did he?
