       September 18, 2007

    Crime is up here in lovely Madison, Wisconsin. Our folksy "Mayor Dave" and our foxy police chief, Noble Wray, have held listening sessions around town to get a better idea of what's going on. People that live in the neighborhoods have told story after story of escalating vandalism, muggings and drug dealing. It's the Broken Windows theory. People outside the tanking neighborhoods like to talk about root causes and play the race card.

    Since it's not practical to blame local crime on George W. Bush, Capital Times editorialists want to point a finger at media hype and handguns. Ah handguns. Nothing this side of Karl Rove brings out the Madison loony libs like guns. This comment from the above linked article might be my favorite comment ever. Seriously.

    Brian says:

    RE: Guns in society.

    Mike Ivey is right here. Handguns don't belong in society. However if someday the state passes a bill to allow concealed carry, I hope there is also something written in the bill that those that choose to carry also have to wear a yellow armband or something around their bicep so we know who is carrying. And so that I can cross the street to not be near that person.

    Doesn't Brian mean "their bulging manly bicep"?

    Anyway, perhaps Wisconsin's criminals will also cross the street to not be near Wisconsin's legal gun owners. Hey, won't that put them on the same side of the street as Brian? Heh.

    Oh yeah, and being on the other side of the street won’t keep you from being hit if someone really wants to shoot you. Opportunity without motive is pretty harmless.
