My momma always told me that I should never speak ill of the dead. So.....
Anyway, did you hear the one about the 11 year old in Utah who brought a gun to school because he was afraid of a "Newtown- style attack"?
"SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - An 11-year-old Utah boy who said he brought a gun to school to protect himself from a Newtown-style attack, then brandished the pistol at three classmates during recess, has been detained on assault and weapons charges, a school spokesman said on Tuesday.
The boy, a Utah sixth-grader, took the unloaded .22-caliber handgun to his school south of Salt Lake City in his backpack on Monday, a spokesman for the Granite School District said.
Some ammunition was also found in the backpack, but it did not appear to go with the gun, said the spokesman, Ben Horsley.
No one was injured in the incident, which occurred as jittery parents, teachers and students around the country faced their first day back at school since 20 children and six adult staffers at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, were shot to death by a lone gunman last Friday.
The 11-year-old student at Utah's West Kearns Elementary, who was not publicly identified, has insisted he brought the gun to school to "protect himself and his friends from a Connecticut-style incident," Horsley said." [Source]
You have got to love these responsible gun owning parents out there. No doubt the little guy in Utah has been listening to conservative radio in his daddy's car while on his way to school.
Finally, can we all agree that if we are going to argue over guns it will not lead to gun play? I mean this is ridiculous.

That story pretty much sums up what we are dealing with in this gun crazed society of ours. Mr. Biden, you are in an unenviable position.
