news reports make me sick

    Just caught a story about some guys running from the cops in my area. Started off as a routine traffic stop. The driver reportedly punched the cop in the face, and then sped off. Of course, he crashed the car and the three guys took off on foot. They caught one of the guys after chasing him with a dog.

    That part is all good and fine.

    Then they interviewed the police chief. "We found two semi-automatic pistols and a 12-gauge shotgun in the vehicle. This is very unusual for someone to be driving around with this much artillery"
    (emphasis added by me)

    ARTILLERY?!?!? I go to the range with that kind of 'artillery' more than frequently......

    That's really dishonorable. I wonder if you called his office on Monday morning if the "police chief" would stand by those comments, or if he was really just pandering to the news media.

    "Artillery" is, by definition:

    That is a serious difference between handheld weapons of death and WEAPONS of artillery and impending doom.

    Minus 10 to your police chief brother - he does not measure up in JD's book...

    At best he is feeding the liberal chickens. I expect he calls his service pistol a "hand cannon" and only carries one round in his shirt pocket.
