    Looks like a "hate" crime to me. Felon hates what the victim has, so he robs the victim

    The TSA shooter brought his gun in a duffle bag. Let's ban duffle bags at the airport. This logic gives me a headache.

    You want to ban hoodies now? It's been tried and struck down as unconstitutional. The hoodie is not the problem. I wear hoodies and don't rob people. Bank robbers use cars, uh oh don't get any ideas.

    There are so many robberies in the last few years, in which the assailants are using "hoodies" to mask themselves. While trying to take our legally owned guns away, why not make it illegal to own and wear hoodies? They are just as much used by criminals, as are guns. It only seems reasonable. I can only think of one reason for this. Use your brain, and you can figure it out. I do not own any hoodies. I am not intending any robberies or murders. What is this common denominator? I wonder.
