    Okay, I just cannot believe this.

    The St. Paul Pioneer Press is the second biggest newspaper in the state, and often has better writing than the Star Tribune.

    But in this editorial (that is, speaking as the voice of the newspaper), they propose that locking up criminals, not banning guns, is the answer.

    They also said, in so many words, we used to think one thing, but facts suggested the opposite, so we've changed our minds.

    A newspaper said this!

    I almost fell off my chair.

    There's something in the water over in St. Paul.

    They even had their smoking ban vetoed, though I suspect that will only be a matter of time.

    I have problems with the Pioneer press at times, but they are a whole world better than the red star.

    Good article but what worries me is they allude to the fact that the guns used in most crimes weren't the ones being banned. These are, of course, handguns and I'm concerned that the next proposed ban will target these.

    People in Minnesota's so-called "news" media are actually blaming criminals for violent crime? There may be hope yet!
