yes but...things potentialy could have been much easier if police would get their wish and have bullets with serial numbers or other identification for eacy tracing. the NRA and republicans (in general) are opposed even though law enforcement feels this would help tremendously in cases like this. the older sniper was found by police on oct 8 in baltimore and could have been apprehended back then and a bunch of extra lives would have been saved. certainly not any fault of the police and i am right there with everyone else in being thankful for a job well done.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
Agree on that, Sean. The argument that such info would give the government too much information on individuals is just specious. First, the information need not be owned by the government. Second, the government could find out exactly what I bought at the local grocery store last Saturday simply because I use one of those money-back scan cards (whoever invented them ought to go to jail for life) which records every single purchase I've ever made at that store. And if they can do that, they can find out more or less whatever they damned well please anyway.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"<br>

I don't want to discount their efforts... but I don't see what that Sheriff did other than hold press conferences. It was pure luck that a truck driver found the snipers at a rest stop... the cops had nothing to do with it.<br><br>Either way, it doesn't matter... thankfully/hopefully everything can begin to get back to normal.<br><br>
