The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

It's for the baby, not the weapons...

People, strollers are for babies. Babies. Not sawed-off shotguns, knives, or box cutters. Babies.

An upstate New York woman will spend up to three years in prison for packing more than diapers in her baby's stroller.

Stephanie Wilson of Utica pleaded guilty last month to carrying an unloaded sawed-off shotgun in the buggy, where police also found several knives and a box cutter. Wilson said she needed the weapons for self protection.

Wilson was arrested July 1 after an argument on the street with another woman over money. Wilson first pulled a knife from the stroller, and then the sawed-off shotgun.
