    Also kinda stating the obvious... meanwhile, in related news, the heads of gun control advocates explode. icon_wink.gif

    And what does he attribute the low crime rate in Toronto, where you claim you actually live? Armed citizens there, too?

    You stated a while back that people on RJ did not like you. Maybe it's because of BS messages like this. I know you don't like riddler and you don't like the fact that he posts messages that you don't agree with. There's plenty of people who post messages that you do agree with so suck it up and grow a pair finally.

    Well I already know how you've felt about me for years, for not being a raving Right Winger like you, and standing up to your radical nonsense. Why don't YOU grow a pair? I've got the credentials - do you?

    Lol, the drop in crime probably correlates with a drop in population.

    I thought the places with lowest crime usually had the fewest armed citizens.icon_question.gif

    Detroit chief of police wants to extend Dream Cruise all the way down to at least Grand Circus and likely the river instead of 8 miles, it's southern terminus now. He thinks he can keep it safe and fun.

    You can queerly see at 40:30 min that we have a big ass traffic problem. Extending the cruise another eight miles south would help.

    That's what you get for doing your own thinking.
    The reverse has actually been shown to be true!

    Actually, downtown Detroit is showing a bit of a comeback with folks moving downtown and midtown. Nothing major yet, but hopeful for the future.

    I love the idea of legally armed citizens if those citizens take responsibility for training themselves in how/when to use their weapons.

    My friends with concealed carry permits are people I'd trust in any situation. They take their continuing training very seriously.

    GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was also a legally armed citizen and he had no business being anywhere near a gun.

    To get personal, I plan to have a gun and I will take that responsibility very seriously.

    But I want to see strong background checks on anyone attempting to own a deadly weapon.

    Heh - I see you're self identifying. Would this be the same Toronto where gun violence has been on the rise?
