Well, yeah. I mean, who doesn't?
But aside from all the really nasty memories, I woke up to this news this morning:
The Long Beach Police Department is missing more than a fourth of its shotguns and an unknown number of revolvers, officials said Thursday.
For those of you playing along at home, you should know that Long Beach isn't far from, say, Compton, a town so lovingly placed in my heart. You know, that place that had an 85% jump in murders last year? Same town that had a no questions asked gun exchange (bring an Uzi walk with a new iPod!) and collected something like two hundred and twenty weapons.
Where, oh where, could some of those guns have gone? It boggles the imagination.
Sleep tight, Long Beach. The city's finest is on the job. Oh, and you might want to invest in a double layer of sheetrock for the house. Just sayin'.
