I decided to recycle this picture, because once again, global warming is in the news. And, once again, a significant number of policy makers will ignore the warning. Small comfort, but history will judge them...harshly...and with good reason.
An armed society is NOT a polite society. It's an armed society, pure and simple. And I'm fine with "guns don't kill, people do," but people with guns -- and if they're stupid and immature -- seem to have a much greater predilection to escalate, or regress, if you prefer, into deciding to shoot. And that's rarely necessary.
To repeat something I've said before, I don't care if people like or want to own a gun, and that extends to pretty much any gun they want to own. But...show some maturity. You probably DON'T need to use it for anything other than target practice.
For the life of me, I can't understand why ANY responsible gun owner would want to defend George Zimmerman or Matt Apperson. And, you know what, I doubt any responsible gun owner does. Which makes Zimmerman and Apperson's defenders...
