Question of the Day: If Guns Kill People, Why Aren’t Prisons Filled With Guns?

I mean…wouldn’t that solve the problem?

    Please. Don’t give them any ideas. I can hear it now. “Let’s let all the innocents out of prison and use them as repositories for all the guns we’ll confiscate to make this a safer country.” Sheesh.

    Irony, 2yellowdogs. Irony. It’s like “goldy” or “bronzy” but more prone to rust.

    1. avatar 2yellowdogs says:

      Thanks, yes, I got the irony. Though I prefer silvery.

      Anyway, while your irony wasn’t lost on me, it likely will be lost on the proggy anti crowd. They’re just the kind of literalists that will fall in love with the idea.

    Oh, and bonus points to the TTAGer who can ID the source of the booking slate in my little Photoshop mashup.

      Was trying to figger that out, but can’t think of a famous New Mexican felon from back in ’77. A youthful indiscretion by Bill Richardson, perhaps?

    Bill Gates’ mugshot.

    What do I win?

      My undying respect and admiration. There now. Aren’t you happy?

    Prisons aren’t filled with guns because 9 out of 10 prisoners prefer shanks. Shanks are quiet, can be made from an old toothbrush, do not require expensive ammuniton and never misfire.

    OK. The suspense is killing me. And the answer is….

    1. avatar Brad Kozak says:

      The arrest slate was that of young William Gates, of Microsoft fame, from his arrest in Arizona.

      1. avatar 2yellowdogs says:

        Heh. I wasn’t aware he’d been arrested. An even bigger surprise is that they put Albuquerque N Mex on the slate when he was arrested in AZ.

    Here’s an interesting side note: in the 1990’s, when South Carolina closed its oldest prison, CCI, a significant amount of pistol ammunition was found in common inmate areas. No handguns were recovered during searches!
