Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Blame the Gun:

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune decided to ban gun ads after a man bought a handgun from an ad, and killed his wife with it.

The paper will only accept classified advertising for collectible antique firearms manufactured before 1898, and those ads must be published under the "Antiques" or "Collectibles" heading.

1898? Sheesh.

You might as well limit access to law-abiding citizens to the purchase of handguns. Nevermind that this sicko would have tried to murder his wife with, or without, the availability of a gun through a newspaper ad. It would behoove the newspaper to blame the man who fired the shots, not the firearm.

The Herald-Tribune also reported on a Mirimar woman who murdered her two-year old daughter by drowning her in a bathtub. No word yet on whether or not the newspaper is planning to ban ad sales for bathtubs.
