Hats off to John Stossel for this intelligent and perceptive piece. Someone should tell that idiot Sharpton (should be Dullton) That if 90% of the people you pass are carrying deadly weapons, 80% are law-abiding citizens who will not be considering you a target like the other 10% who are Sharpton's homies, who are looking at you as the source of their next rock of crack. The only way to become the target of the 80% is to reveal yourself as one of the 10%, who are, or should be, on their way to their meeting with the coroner.
I like the contrast between Clinton's petulant "Don't tell me this won't make a difference!" (he doesn't even sound convinced himself) and the stony-faced prisoners sitting there, saying that they don't care about laws and prefer to rob people who they know. They might be thugs, but they're completely realistic.
