Question of the Day: If Guns Kill People, Why Aren’t Prisons Filled With Guns? by | Jan 24, 2011 | 14 comments facebook twitter linkedin email I mean…wouldn’t that solve the problem? comments 2yellowdogs says: January 24, 2011 at 09:37 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. Reply Brad Kozak says: January 24, 2011 at 11:22 Irony, 2yellowdogs. Irony. It’s like “goldy” or “bronzy” but more prone to rust. Reply 2yellowdogs says: January 24, 2011 at 14:25 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.

Reply 2yellowdogs says: January 24, 2011 at 14:28 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? Reply TTACer says: January 24, 2011 at 11:59 Bill Gates’ mugshot. Reply TTACer says: January 24, 2011 at 12:00 What do I win? Reply Brad Kozak says: January 24, 2011 at 14:38 My undying respect and admiration. There now. Aren’t you happy? Reply TTACer says: January 24, 2011 at 17:44 Excellent. Reply Ralph says: January 24, 2011 at 13:38 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. Reply 2yellowdogs says: January 24, 2011 at 22:18 OK. The suspense is killing me. And the answer is…. Reply Brad Kozak says: January 25, 2011 at 00:30 The arrest slate was that of young William Gates, of Microsoft fame, from his arrest in Arizona. Reply 2yellowdogs says: January 25, 2011 at 18:50 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. Reply CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says: March 25, 2011 at 01:17 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! Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
