A direct quote from my 82 year old mother in regard to the NYC shootings.........

Mom is listening to Mayor Bloomberg and yells at him "you can get rid of the fucking soda, but you can't get rid of the god damn guns."

5. According to Police Commissioner Kelly,

 

the NYPD may be responsible for some that were wounded. We'll know after they recover the bullets from the wounded.

6. Mom, as much as I loathe Bloomberg....

 

.... one can't blame him for lax or non-existent gun laws.

Blame him for bad schools, high taxes, high rents , high crime, stop and frisk, governmental dishonesty, police statism, political corruption of all varieties: guilty as charged.

But NOT for putting guns in the hands of crazy people.

9. Huh.

 

Does your mother have the internet?

Maybe she should google "NYC gun laws".

10. Mom has internet access via me........

read my response above. Her use of you, was all encompassing, not specifically @ NYC laws.

FYI, she is the widow of a 15 year Marine Corps Veteran, who was with Dad through 11 of those 15 and Dad was a Chosin Reservoir combatant and veteran. (that has nothing to do with the post, just wanted to bond).

Semper FI

16. Yep it was tough........

I don't think my Dad was ever warm. I remember in the winter he was always rubbing his hands, clenching them and blowing into them to keep warm.

13. Movie theatres here are now running "PSAs" about "protecting our freedom of choice"

re: the soda sizes.

Now I think it's a stupid idea. But of all the things to spend millions fighting and getting worked up about...

14. Firearms have more rights than people's right to vote.

Firearms are made for one purpose, to hunt animals especially the two legged kind.
