Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike ......
     You totally missed the point.  (Add heavy sarcasm now)
If only you guys who are so intent on protecting yourselves gave
up your guns, then the criminals wouldn't feel threatened and would
disarm also.  (Bills friends' favorite line about the USSR in the
70's)  You just have to feel secure in yourself and trust that the
gang bangers are really nice guys under the skin, and are only
misunderstood.  They need to be treated with respect and
understanding.  If only everyone would do that, crime would
disappear.  Bubba's honor.

     And If you believe that drivel, I have a bridge in
Brooklyn to show you.  :-)
