    Too many guns owned by gangs and other unstable types who want to create their own "militia".

    It is too cold to be shooting people, though there has been a lot of foot traffic for the icy conditions of the sidewalks and roads.

    I did see a line of cars around 12:30 am Wed. nearby on Hargett... Several officers got out on foot at Swain, but I didn't see where they went from there. I thought something was up, but didn't hear any shots.

    Huh, gang violence or too many gun owners?
