Assume you are walking down the street with your gun, and a robber approaches with a gun. You shoot him. The prosecutor files homicide charges against you, but the grand jury refuses to indict, since it is such a clear cut case of self defense. What is a zealous prosecutor to do? Why, make a gun charge, of course! And an equally zealous judge orders no bond (that ought to get jrm's blood boiling). Now, this guy is facing 15 years for simply doing society a favor. http://www.rochesterdandc.com/apps/pbcs ... /1002/NEWS Remember this story next time you read about Bloomberg saying NY's gun laws are a model for the nation.
