Dispatches From The Weaponized Society

Gun dudes and dudettes! It's time again to give Thumbs Up! to an acceptable statistic of a weaponized society, or a big Thumbs Down! to an act that is truly beyond the pale of weapon-mongery.

Saturday, June 8, 2013
Santa Monica, California (CNN) -- Rifle fire cracked through the air just before noon Friday in Santa Monica. Minutes later, when police responded, a house was ablaze.

The gunman was gone.

By the time officers caught up with him, he had killed four people and wounded five more on a nearly mile-long shooting rampage, said Sgt. Richard Lewis, a spokesman for the Santa Monica police.
Remember that just as a society based on automobile transportation usually accepts a certain mortality level as an "acceptable statistic", so also must a truly weaponized society...

The results are in. It's a big  Thumbs Up!
