We could talk about outlawing guns, but that would be rather futile, wouldn't it?

Look at it this way: how many people did this guy shoot? How many people live in Montgomery County? The chances are one in a several hundred thousand that you might be the next victim, but if you're nervous, stay on the many nice bike paths that aren't even near the roads.

You can't be intimidated, man. I'm going out tomorrow right across the river. Life is a gamble.

800,000 people live in Mont County (my home of 20 years) Over 3.5 Million in the DC Metro Area. We still ride, but with extra thoughts about violence and contemplation.

I grew up in the Aspen Hill area, in fact my brother worked at the gas station where one man was killed.

It takes a real psycho to kill people in this manner, but it can happen anywhere.
Its pretty much anywhere nowpmf1

Four in MD, one in DC, one in VA and this morning, a 13 year old kid in MD.

I rode all weekend. What can you do? Hiding in the basement just isn't an option for me. I won't let nuts like this control my life.
