    Just amazing you can go to jail longer for drug possession then shooting someone. This guy is a psycho and he gets 4 months? Shoots a man in the head in front of his family?

    "Good character"?

    How could anyone stand up in court and attest to his "Good character"?

    I don't know. Shooting someone in the head is bad enough but to do it in front of his three year old Son is absolute insanity.

    Why are we not removing these people from the public entirely? I'm baffled.

    I think all amount of character, Karma, whatever you got built up is immediately dismissed when you try to shoot some body in the head.

    The ironic thing is that he was originally motivated by pointing out a safety issue!!! I guess that speaks for his character in some bizarre way. Too many guns out there, way too many.

    Not too many guns. Too many people that shouldn't have them.

    I don't wish to quibble but really... too many guns. Your scenario leads to discussions becoming showdowns with handguns.... if you really mean that funetical I'll have to shoot you.

    A man on a bicycle with his son should not need a gun to defend himself. There should be no reason for him to have one. Even if he did, he was shot at from behind, so there's a good chance it wouldn't have done him any good.

    Until someone figures out a way to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and crazy people, I will exercise my right to legally carry one, and hope I never need to use it.

    We already have guns of carbon fiber. Some parts of the frame and grips are CF. Glock and many others make polymer-framed guns and have for years. The current crop of firearms are perfectly suited to biking with. Unless you're racing. Then I'd go with a modern carbon fiber dagger. Anything's better than nothing and it sure is light. Afterall, we're out there to win at all costs!

    It's a joke, Swede. I leave the high-tech cutlery at home, but we do have plastic guns. Guy's gotta have a variety of hobbies. All the world is not a velodrome.

    I've got an alloy frame revolver. Quite light, but you wouldn't want to shoot it.
