Disarming St. Louis


From the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

        “It’s certainly worth the effort,” said Lt. Col. Tim Reagan, the department’s chief of detectives. “You can’t give a scientific evaluation of how many crimes it solves or prevents by doing this. But you can say if a gun is not on the street, then it can’t be used. You can say that if a gun is in our possession, then it can’t be used in an unlawful act or cause an accident.”

And you can also say that if a gun is in your possession it can’t be used by a law-abiding citizen to protect themselves.

The community would have been better served by using that money to put another office on the street.
