    I saw this article about the increase in road-rage shootings and was amused at their use of the terminology "Weapons effect" being a contributor to these incidents. Weapons effect, my ass; idiot effect. People are hostile, alienated, segregated, berated and even democrats are buying guns but most of them have little enough sense to understand that a lethal confrontation is best reserved for a life threatening confrontation and not someone taking your parking place.

    Just went and checked the Weapons locker, the various concealed hidey holes and as Expected not a single gun had left its designated place and went out on a shooting spree. This leads me to believe that it is a people problem and not a weapons problem.

    I once had 2 weapons, A hand gun and an AR-15, One of those deadly evil Black rifles that can shoot 3K rounds per minute.

    I sold them because you never know when the will sneak up on you sleeping, I hate waking up dead?

    Funny I have an assortment of different firearms and they all get along---- none have gone on a shooting spree-- unlike some people

    The left believes that firearms are possessed of some kind of an evil spirit that makes you want to go out and shoot people.

    Funny when I used to own them I never did experience such a drive.

    People are easier to manipulate with fear. and it seems the life both abuse it and those sensitive to fear.

    When road rage turns into a demolition derby it doesn't make the news.
