The Dragon City

Boy they sure seem to like dragons in this town
It’s the capitol city of Slovenia and has a grand total of less than 300,000 people living there. It’s a big city by their standards. In comparison to US cities, it’s just a bit bigger than Greensboro, NC and smaller than Newark, NJ.
But neither of those two places has a castle in the middle of town.

You picked the wrong thing to steal

Stealing guns will get you plenty of police attention. Stealing machine guns will get you more than you can handle.
So what sort of pillars of society steal machine guns from a gun store?
Two felons and a multiple misdemeanant.
Moms telling TV cameras that sons were “turning their lives around” and “got involved with the wrong crowd” in 3…2…1…

This is why guns are banned in parks

The gun grabbers and other Gun Fearing Weenies are always going on about how the possession of a weapon will make a simple argument into a deadly encounter. When we were pushing for a repeal of gun bans in parks, the GFWs came out of the woodwork to tell us that “tensions run high” on ballfields, so we need to ban guns.
No doubt the GFWs are feeling mighty smug right now. They think that they were proven correct. They will jump up and down shouting to the heavens that it’s a good thing that the suspect didn’t have a gun. They won’t bother to look any further.
That’s right, they were both felons, meaning that neither of them were allowed to have a gun, much less the required CHP to carry it. It also meant that none of the “several parents” were armed. Would the GFWs have been happy had those parents gotten stabbed? The “No Guns Allowed” signs don’t stop crime. They only make it impossible for the law abiding to defend themselves.
People who stab others as a method of finishing a domestic argument generally have previous records. Someone needs to explain to me why the actions of known criminals should cause me to lose my rights.

Meanwhile in Rebecca Peters Paradise: Teen Hell’s Angels edition

I never pictured Hell’s Angels as being teenagers, but apparently they are in Australia.

Both of the 17 year olds are suspected of involvement in a shooting.
Shouldn’t gun control in Australia have prevented this? That is what the gun grabbers are always telling us.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: How Do They Know it Was Imitation? Edition

Given that they aren’t reporting that it was recovered, you wonder how the cops know that the gun was an imitation.
Either way, if gun control actually worked, no one would be fooled by a fake gun. They would all know that if the total ban on handguns actually meant that there were no handguns, logically any handguns that appeared would be fake ones.
The actions of the victims tell you all you need to know about how well the public perceives gun control to work.

Loser and bigger loser get caught by victims

In the grand scheme of criminals, these two have to be the biggest losers out there.
The people who use check cashing places do not have other options. They’d probably use a bank and have direct deposit if they could. Taking money from their hands is probably taking all the money that they have, and they are likely to react poorly.
The story does not say that Suspect 1 was taken to the hospital for severe injuries, which tells me that the pack didn’t beat him senseless. While I have a certain sympathy for beating robbers to within an inch of their lives, it is probably best that they turned him over to the proper authorities.

From a hole in the ground to a city in the sun

What a brilliant day! We started out in one of the famous caves of the Slovenian Karst and ended up in the sun in a medieval town that used to be owned by Venice.
Piran would have been better had we spent a week there, just relaxing. And partying too.

Why was he free?

So you’re visiting Wallace, NC from New York when two bullets come through the house, striking your 9 year old dead.
Police think it was a drive by shooting, and have captured their suspect.
While the gun grabbers will scream bloody murder over this death of a child, we should be asking the question, why was this person not locked securely in a prison somewhere?
That’s the difference between the gun grabbers and us. The gun grabbers want to put everyone in prison by turning the entire nation into a place where no one has any rights. We just want to put the criminals in prison and leave 9 year old boys in a world where their parents can take them to the shooting range or out rabbit hunting.
And somehow we are the bad people.

Is that a gun in your pants, or…

Wasn’t gun control supposed to stop this sort of thing?
