Why do you need a gun in a park?

(Via the Drudge Report)

Oh heck, I don't know...maybe to protect yourself from being gang-raped?

A local council-leech puts it better:

“The new criminal we're seeing, they're bold, they're brazen, and they have a total disregard for life,” said Maria Cabrera, city councilwoman-at-large in Wilmington.

But this being Delaware, one of those northeastern cradles of the Revolutionary War, where they've forgotten that the burden for your personal defense rests squarely on the shoulders of the individual, it ranges from difficult to near impossible to carry a gun for your defense.  Because guns.

I just can't buy the argument that we get from people in these states, the ones that go along the lines of "Hey, if we don't fight these things here you'll be fighting them in the free-er states."  It doesn't work that way.  Look at Colorado, where laws just went from pretty darn good to crap in the space of a few weeks.

We're going to fight these BS attacks on our Constitutionally-protected freedoms everywhere, in every state, county, city, town and village.  It seems to me that, like the Free State projects, we would do ourselves a favor to band together in carefully selected states where we can mass the votes to keep this stuff at bay.  Let those other places go straight to the hell of their own choosing, and good riddance to them.

But that's just me, thinking pragmatically.
