A polite society is a clean society.

NRA guy keeps calling for more and more guns, then wonders where all the bullets are coming from.

Southern Beale points out the inconsistencies (follow the link for the entire post).

No one wants to politicize a tragedy but no one also ever points out that calling for arming teachers, National Guard recruiters, airplane pilots, etc. is doing just that.

Politeness is a family affair.

North College Hill police said the child’s 17-year-old brother was pulling the magazine oh (sic) his handgun when the weapon fired a bullet that hit a wall, grazing the 11-year-old on the right side.

The kid may have been using a magazine, but authorities are throwing the book at him.

Even if persons get too close to you, show politeness.

Upon leaving the store, Michelle Dupree found that someone had parked too close to her truck, Renton police accounts say.

Dupree reportedly waited for the driver. When he emerged from the store and got into the driver’s seat of his car, she started yelling at him and initiated an argument, court documents say.

The man backed out of the parking lot and started to drive away, but the two continued to argue. The man reportedly yelled, “I’m a man” out of his car window, probable cause records say, prompting Dupree to reply, “Well, I’m a woman. That’s why I have an equalizer.”

Dupree allegedly retrieved a handgun from her truck, pointed it at the man and walked toward his car as he tried to leave the parking lot.
