Reason #2679 to carry a gun

Goth clothes 'prompted killing'
A 15-year-old boy kicked and stamped to death a woman because she was dressed as a Goth, a court heard.

As I said on an email list:

This is getting to be more common. I was going to say "more common in
the UK", but it's not just there. I run a website tracking home invasion in Minnesota, and I see lots of crime reports. There isn't a week that goes by that doesn't include a pack of thugs stomping someone during a mugging. It seems to be standard procedure for a mugging in some areas.

There is a certain subset of civilization(not race/religion/nationality based) that holds life to have no value, because they apparently don't value themselves in any way. Stomping someone to death over the $10 in their wallet, or the color of their
lipstick is somehow acceptable, because they don't consider their own lives to be worth that same $10.

There's a reason I carry a gun and teach carry permit classes.
