Creeping Acceptance of Gun Control

In an 1950s episode of the courtroom drama Perry Mason a stranger flying on an airplane drops a revolver on the floor. Perry picks it up and hands it back to him without comment to the airline staff. Since then, Americans have come to the realisation that they are much safer in airplanes, airports, and schools without guns. They are beginning to realise that guns are unhealthy for large gatherings of world leaders or pope exhibitions. It has yet to dawn on them that principle also applies to bars, stores, cars, political rallies… Guns belong in locked gun lockers most of the time. If almost nobody but criminals carried guns, criminals could be arrested and convicted simply for carrying a gun — an open and shut case allowing them to be taken off the streets en masse.

Honourable Thieves

The most honourable of thieves are the jewel thieves; they steal only what people want but do not need.
