They started last summer, after the city council had defunded the police to the tune of about 150 million. Since then we’ve seen almost daily shootings and stabbings. Pretty generally in the usual places of trouble: East and North Austin. Thankfully not near where we are, at Neely’s Canyon in Northwest Hills. Not yet.
UPDATE: Austin cops leaving the force.
A Fox news blonde bimbo, “covering” the Boulder supermarket massacre, describes an
AR 356 AR 536 as an automatic rifle. It is, in fact, a rifle scope, not a rifle. And automatic rifles have been outlawed for civilians since the 1930s days of the Tommy Gun. Just pathetic journalism.
Gun control makes women vulnerable. Gun rights are women’s rights.
Here, of all places. As in Texas, not liberal Austin. I have an NRA sticker on my rear window my son says will get the car broken into looking for guns. Not yet. My sticker isn’t current because I long ago lost interest in the NRA. Blowhards who keep asking for money, long after the initial membership, and the principal target of liberal politicians; whereas there are other, more effective gun owner groups. But I welcome the reinforcement of conservative politics. Just hope it doesn’t backfire. They could take their last stand in, say, Alabama..
Or was she murdered for protesting? More likely. Sez here she was shot in the chest but a witness who was standing beside her and got her blood on his hand, said she was shot in the neck. She died at a DC hospital.

UPDATE: She was unarmed and no danger to anyone, including the Capitol Police rent-a-cop who shot her. But few care because she was a Trump supporter. Yeah, that’s a good reason to kill her.
I started liking a .22 LR for self-defense after training with an auto one. So much easier to hit the target where you want the round to go than even with a .38, much less a high-recoil .45. Only real problem is the rimfire ammo misfiring. So maybe I need a .22 revolver for ease of resolving a misfire. What do you know, I may even be part of a trend!
