News, but not the serious kind
Draw your weapons!
Blog Guy, the police in England didn’t used to carry guns, but someone told me it’s different now.
It has changed slightly. Police are now allowed to carry a photo or a drawing of a pistol to use against criminals.
A DRAWING of a gun?
Sure. You’ve heard the expression, “Draw your gun.”
Well, I don’t know… How does that help them?
Think about it. Most criminals over there just carry a sketch of a KNIFE, so a sketch of a gun is better.
Um, what if it’s like a violent, dangerous killer?
That’s when they sketch the big guns, so to speak. Assault weapons, sniper rifles…:
“IT’S THE POLICE, LEFTY! WE KNOW YOU’RE THERE! TOSS OUT A SKETCH OF YOU WITH YOUR HANDS UP!”
Sigh. I swore I would never come back to this stupid blog!
And yet, here you are…
