Armed to the teeth

And looking for someone to shoot.

The start of Will Robinson's excellent post on America's bizarre love affair with guns

After the shooting rampage in Binghamton that left 13 people dead, the city’s police chief – the man charged with protecting the citizenry – said in a moment of stupidity:

“If some crazy lunatic decides to pick up a gun and go someplace and start shooting people, I really don’t have the answer how…[to] prevent anything like that.”

Stop letting people just “pick up a gun” like they’re picking up milk and eggs from the supermarket.
