Handgun bans and Dogs

OYFP takes a break from its regular programming to bring you the following:

On the more serious side, guns' prevalence in our society is a little scary, to me at least. Guns aren't a joke. Well, ok, they're a joke when they're not real and a dog is involved, but other than that, they're not so funny.

The Supreme Court recently shot down (pun intended) regional handgun bans such as the one in Washington DC, a move that was applauded by the more conservative politicos, and wept over by the more liberal. It is widely expected that this will increase the number of guns (both registered and unregistered) on the street. Depending on which side you're on, people believe this will either decrease or increase crime.

What do you think?

That's funny. Dogs provide such great stress relief.

I would like to take this opportunity to discuss the issues surrounding the ownership, use, and regulation of firearms as well as safety issues related to firearms both through their direct use and through legal and criminal use. Just kidding! HaHa, great video. He was right on queue in the last shooting too.
