Is there no more common sense in the World?

For those who don't know, I am a combat Soldier currently deployed in Iraq.  Which gives me a front row seat to the 'lack of common sense' show.  I would love to share some stories with you, but this is the wrong venue for that.  I will, however, share with you two stories I read today which showcase the complete failure of common sense.

First story comes from  The nitty gritty of this story is that Mr. Aitken is a law abiding citizen and was following the letter of the law completely when he was arrested for being in the possession of three handguns.  Please read the article for yourself and beware your brain may hurt after reading it, mine did: Gun Owner Jailed For Following The Law

The first story may make your head hurt, but the second story will piss you off.  This story is being covered by There is a guard member/security contractor that has been jailed in the U.A.E. for having in his possession 'firearm parts'.  These parts they speak of have nothing to do with the operation of any firearm known to man.  They include a cleaning kit and a forward vertical grip! These items are considered unauthorized contraband and therefor lead to his arrest and imprisonment.  I encourage you to read the full story:

Will it ever end? Probably not.
