Doctor uses L.W. Seecamp .32 ACP in gun-free-zone self-defense shooting

(This is my LWS .32 ACP.  There are many like it, but this one is mine.)

A psychiatrist, a caseworker, and an outpatient have a meeting in a typical medical-center setting.  The meeting goes very sour and the patient becomes confrontational.  He pulls a .32 caliber revolver (an old Iver Johnson according to THIS ARTICLE) and executes (murders) the caseworker with shots to her head.  The patient then turns his gunfire toward the psychiatrist, wounding the doctor as he is diving for cover.  The doctor pulls a small pistol from his pocket and returns fire, emptying his .32 caliber Seecamp semi-auto, wounding the murderous patient three times, twice critically.   Two other staff members then wrestle the rather large and still ambulatory patient down, take control of his revolver, and hold him for police.

Below are links to the different news outlets and accounts.  To get a picture that is as clear (and accurate) as possible, I recommend reading all of them.

Gunmen rob train passengers in Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago

Just keep telling everyone that Chicago’s crime is DOWN!

The rumor is that Mayor Rahm Emanuel views Chicago’s rampant crime as a bodacious tourist attraction.


These typical Chicago thugs must not have received the word that carrying concealed handguns on Chicago mass transit is illegal.  Then again, maybe they did know that and were counting on the honest folks obeying that law.

The only surefire way to stay safe in Rahm Emanuel's Chicago is to DON'T GO THERE!

A quick review of the Schwinn Sierra 2 comfort bike


A bit under two-months-ago, after several years of due consideration and idle promises, I finally went out and bought a decent bicycle from a decent local bicycle shop.  My bodyweight had been creeping up again so I figured I had no choice but to further increase my physical activity (and to return to strictly regulating the quality and quantity of my grazing).

With the seven-speed twist-grip shifting, along with fore and aft handgrip braking, this fenderless, thick-tire, entry-level bicycle is more than adequate for my daily (or nearly so) physical fitness use.   This bike should give more years of service than I have life left to live.  Let me be clear about one thing; I bought this bicycle for mercenary reasons; I am not a delusional bicycle fan-boy on an imaginary “Tour de France.”  Although it was a traditional childhood rite of passage, I disliked riding bicycles over a half century ago and nothing has changed my mind since then.  There is not one lick of nostalgia anywhere in my sixty-two-year-old-soul for bicycling.  I am doing it for my physical health, not my mental health. 

At the big retail stores, I found that this same bicycle (make and model) is rarely completely or properly assembled, but it is around $50 cheaper than it is from most typical local bicycle shops.  A couple of bicycle shops near me offer “tune-ups” for bicycles purchased from big box stores; this service ranges from $40 - $80, so I figured I was time and money ahead by staying with a bike shop.

The only safety gear I allow myself is a blaze orange hunting vest for visibility and sunglasses with a rearview mirror.
