    Why is every police officer in the country packing heat? Those who feel that guns make you less safe, are you ready to demand that police be disarmed?

    Already tried this argument, though I used the fact that the President has armed security. Sadly, they won't take the argument seriously.

    The present agenda should be to keep these war weapons out of the hands of the crazies. And, just maybe, to have a good look at our society and try to understand why we are on the path to actually see deaths involving guns outnumber those from auto accidents within two years.
