#1 I thought armed guards was going to result in baby bunnies and darling duckies killed all over the place as the gun-crazies shot anything that moved?

#2 Gun control on ships, gun control in Chicago. Always the same excuses to refuse to arm the citizenry. Same escalation in crime. Introduce properly trained armed men with robust authority to act into the population an amazing event occurs. Generally, if a theory is substantiated by repeated similar behavior and outcome its usually considered a law. Unfortunately, scientific law is checked by the priest of the church of law, lawyers and their brethren judges.
