Too Many Guns On Streets Of Madison, Wisconsin Says Police Spokesman

May 19, 2012

There is no way to counter the statement from Madison Police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

Following a most bizarre and terrifying shooting incident outside a bar in the early hours of Saturday that left three people injured there was nothing left to say but the obvious.

There are just too many guns on the streets of Madison.

DeSpain said Madison needs to get on top of what he called “thuggery” in the community. He said there are too many guns on the streets.

He added that he had not seen such a “brazen” attack in Madison.

Over and over we awake to the news of more shootings by people who have no reason to have a gun other than to leave misery in their wake.

Such was the case this college graduation weekend in Madison where three people were shot by a nutcase with a gun.

We deserve better as a nation than to have to witness this continual slide downwards due to the prevalence of too many handguns.  Cleary handguns are too cheap and too readily available.  Given that lowlifes, such as this shooter will no doubt demonstrate himself to be, can so easily get guns then we as a society must work to make it harder to manufacture, sell, and own these deadly weapons.

Until then lets beef up our police forces and get the rabble off the streets.

    When you are saying we should “beef up” the police, will those cops have guns or not? ’cause if “guns” themselves are really the problem, then won’t more cops with more guns cause more problems?

    Seriously…if you wanna stop most of the violence on the streets then you gotta end the War on Drugs. We went through all this when booze was outlawed…same exact things were happening: Gangs get rich off of selling illegal substances, they use those profits to buy guns so they can protect their turf/trade, and then the gangsters get used to pulling out their pistols to settle any/all disputes.

    Keeping guns away from law-abiding citizens won’t do anything to help with this, but rather will only make things worse.

    RE: legacy
    Odds are Walker will always have security personnel protection* so he can “live with it” but it will be you and I who may not be able to live with it.

    *perhaps prison guard protection someday?

    Maybe the police should ought to stop supporting right-wing, NRA whores who run for public office?

    Isn’t there a law against intercepting a bullet with your body so that the gun nut who shot it doesn’t get the maximum distance he paid for? There oughta be. Second point is, if it were mandatory that everyone carry a gun, the other 99 people could have taken care of the sitchiation. Yeehaw!

    well it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks or says walker gave people the right to commit murder so now it can only get worse. and the cops are not going to know who has a gun and who doesn’t. walker made the mess now let him live with the legacy along with dumb shi# grothman and idiot starchota. they both have blood on their hands and they are proud of it.
