  •  one was snark (1+ / 0-)

    I was replying to Bob Johnson afterall, but you apparently don't have the snark meter on.

    The other was a statement of fact,  guns are a popular target of burglaries around here, they bring good money, regardless of type.

    Guns are ubiquitous around here,  you hear gunfire pretty regularly, you should just assume most people have a gun of some sort on their person, in their truck or home. So no, a rule like Nelson's doesn't really matter.But  to try to argue that the city council was doing anything to defend people's constitutional rights is an absurdity, they were grandstanding to the crowd.

    •  So, would it be almost ordinary? (2+ / 0-)

      For example, for some troubled young person to shoot their parent 4x about 9AM on a weekday and someone who heard it, might not bother to call the police?

        If it clearly came from inside someone's house, probably someone would call, but if it was just an echo and you weren't sure where it was, a yard or a house or out across the road somewhere, then nobody would call.  In an apartment building or in the shopping areas, something like that in town, it would be more likely someone would call.
