Been Away

I've been away the past two days at a conference sponsored by the feds, dealing with firearms laws and such. It was refreshing since instead of dealing with lawyers all the time, like I have to at work, this crowd was mostly law enforcement from around the country, and the presenters were ATF, State Police, and a Richmond City gang investigator. The best part was getting a free copy of the Blue Book of Gun Values, which lists pretty much every known firearm and its value.

Ironically, literally across the hall in another conference room of this nice hotel, a group of capital case defense lawyers was holding a meeting. Needless to say, this made for an interesting mix in the hallway at the break times.
