That was never my intention Lisi.  The sexes could have been interchanged 
and it would still have been an equally bad court decision.

The point I think that defines our differences is that when we setup this 
government 200+ years ago, history had taught us that power corrupts, 
and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Hence what we call the Bill of 
Rights was added to our constitution before the individual states would 
seriously consider ratifying it.  That Bill of Rights, including the 
famous 2nd amendment, gave us the tools to change that government by 
force if it should get too oppressive. The equally famous 1st (free 
speech) gave us the right to talk about how that might be accomplished.

You, Lisi, on the other hand have what is supposed to be a weapon free 
society, but in reality you can be mugged and murdered with a baseball 
bat on your way to the corner store for a loaf of bread and a pint of 
Guinness.  Legally, you have no way of fighting back to preserve your 
life.  If in fighting back, you injure the perp, it is you who have to 
pay the legal consequences because he'll sue you.

We read the news here too, when the mainsleeze news sites feel like its 
worth reporting.  Even the BBC seems to be colored more by reporting on 
the media "stars" than on the you and me stuff in  ore recent history.

IMO there is something seriously wrong with that whole scene...

Such jerks as do that abound in every society.  Neither of us have a 
patent on that.  And the results are the same, you are dead and the perp 
has the 10 lb note that was in your pocket.

In WW-II, we gathered up several thousand of our sporting arms and sent 
them to England along with a good supply of ammo so you all had a chance 
of fighting for your homeland should Hitler have ordered his troops 
across the channel.  All were recorded as to who they belonged to so 
that there might be a chance that Iowa farmer may have gotten his 
fathers prized Parker shotgun, now worth 5 to 10 thousand dollars, back 
when the "festivities" were over.  But whats Churchill do?  He rounds 
them all up, loads them on a barge and dumps them in the channel.  Some 
very finely made, by the best artisans, including some of your Holland 
and Holland made double rifles, probably worth 10 million or more as a 

There are a few still alive who remember that double cross clearly.  My 
own grandfather was one who lost a fine Fox double barrel 12 gauge that 
way.  He just shrugged his shoulders as a good Christian man, but you 
had to know he was disappointed, and that should that scenario be 
repeated, he would not be so charitable again.

Lisi, your are indeed a dear lady, dinner & drinks are on me should we 
ever meet, but both of us are mentally painted, or tainted, depending on 
ones point of reference, in the manner of the society we have lived in 
all our lives.

Here, the game belongs to the state, but only convicted felons are 
precluded from hunting, and that is because they have lost the right to 
own such a weapon.  Here in WV for instance, and me being a genuine 
oldtimer past 65,  my drivers license IS my hunting and fishing license, 
the only costs are for the trout stamps as that is a federal program.

And I will plead guilty to being a frustrated teacher. ;-)
