Well the symposium on gun control at Pitt went well tonight. It was fairly well attended. I counted 61 people at the maximum attendance. Including the photographer from the Bradford Era. And they had cookies!
There were the usual suspects there. A few professors, some students, a couple Bradford "dignitaries", a few from Bradford Today, and even a loon or two ..... make that three maybe.
Some people were conspicuously absent.
Before hand I predicted that the panel discussion would go something like this:
The gun nuts would say "don't take our guns".
Then the rational people would say "we have to do something". Then the gun nuts would repeat: "don't take our guns". And the rational people would respond with "we have to do something". Then the gun nuts would repeat: "don't take our guns". And the rational people would again say: "we have to do something". And so on and so on ..... Blah, blah, blah!
Imagine sitting through an hour and a half of that .... or something close to it! I bailed after ten minutes!
Not sure if they solved the worlds problems or even just the problem of gun control in this country ..... I doubt it.
Hope I didn't miss a gun fight at the end of the symposium!
When I went past Tops on the way out to Pitt, I could swear that the gas was priced at $3.73 and when I passed it on the way home, less than an hour later it was $3.74! It was still only $3.69 at the other end of town, near Pitt. Just two days ago I paid $3.63!
Isn't this the workings of a tyrannical government? At what point do we pick up our guns? (Tongue-in-cheek, JeffT)
