There Oughta Be a Law

Plastic zip ties simply have no place in a civilized society.

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (WBZ) ― Framingham police say it was "a murder waiting to happen." Someone strung thick plastic zip ties across a street at neck level.

Tthe ties were found hanging 4 or 5 feet above the ground across Grove Street by Belknap Road on Monday night. Police removed them and they were found there again on Tuesday night and Wednesday.

INCONVENIENT TRUTH #766: A four-dollar bag of plastic zip ties in the hands of a deranged individual represents an immeasurably greater threat to the public welfare than the loaded gun I carry on my person every day.

Speaking of which (nice segue, eh?), in about an hour, I'll be picking up my first non-MA-compliant handgun.
