Maybe they should have background checks…

for plastic bags and belts:

A teenager suspected of suffocating his 6-year-old neighbor with plastic bags, wrapping her body in a tarp and dumping it about a mile from her home was shot Tuesday in an exchange of gunfire with officers trying to serve arrest and search warrants….

According to a capital murder arrest warrant affidavit, authorities suspect (Tyler) Holder suffocated Alanna Gallagher, who was found with plastic bags taped around her neck. Holder’s DNA matched evidence found on the girl’s body and on a belt wrapped around the tarp, according to the affidavit, which says the girl was sexually assaulted.

And how about age limits? After all, if they had only had laws saying people over 21 could buy those items, Alanna Gallagher might well still be alive.

What? You say that’s stupid and impractical? Well, if it’s that way for plastic bags and belts, why would it be any different for guns — especially considering the aforementioned gun battle Saginaw police found themselves in when they went to serve Mr. Holder his warrants?

And you’ll note that little girl was not killed with a gun…so, as Weer’d would say, no candle for her!

    Deem plastic bags and belts illegal to possess for people under 21, then only criminals under 21 will possess plastic bags and belts…

    …or something like that.
