"Hath not a gunnie hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means, warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer...?"
Ooops, wrong minority.
From the "Get thee in the back of the bus" department: "...city, state, and federal rules may not prohibit the opening of a gun shop across the street from an elementary school," Longfellow Elementary Principal Peter Gull wrote, "but it's been difficult to explain that to parents who worry for the safety of their children and the element that this business may bring to the neighborhood."
Yassa, boss, ain't no bad element here but us chickens. I'll just step back down to th'gutter where I belongs, boss.
Like hell I will. No law-abiding citizen -- no law-abiding individual! -- has to shuck and jive for any other.
Seems a gun store may be opening cattycorner from a an elementary school. You and I might say, "so what?"
In contrast, here's the bedwetter mindset, as revealed by mentalist Gull: "We are sensing almost overwhelming fear, confusion, and outrage from community members living near our school."
He is, mind you, sensing this. Darn those radioactive spiders! (Here's a local TV report the Principal tried to spin anti in a letter to the Mayor. It's more like 60/40).
Oh, and Principal Gull? Around here, the main "element" you find brought to the neighborhood by a gun store are cops, usually shopping or "shooting" only the breeze. My, how dreadful that would be for you and the innocent children. Especially when they see it's just ordinary people shopping there.
