I just read this article in the Star Tribune about a bicyclist who was held up at gun point on the Hiawatha trail, and his experience. link
The article itself was sad, though expected. Bicyclists in Minneapolis have known for a while that the Hiawatha Trail and it’s sister Greenway Trail have recently been plagued by groups of thugs who will mug you as you ride by and take whatever you happen to have on you at the time.
While the article itself is sad, the comments are just down right depressing. I’m surprised, and appaled at the number of pro gun, pro conceal and carry comments there are. Go read it for yourself. Then come back and tell me what you think.
