    The NRA called it a "worthless sound-bite remedy". I disagree only with "remedy".

    Smegma McCain yesterday repeated the "there will be violence if sane gun regulations are enacted" terrorist chant.

    In public. Without being shown the door. WTF-8?

    Just impose a 500% tax on ammo. At least that might pay some of the hospital and funeral bills.

    When someone is spraying bullets at 3,300 fps, you don't look for your gun; you look for cover.

    "The only defense against a bad guy with a bomb is a good guy with a bomb." See how insane that sounds?

    And yet... it is the USAmerican nuclear warfighting policy. We make bigger andor more accurate bombs, to defend against the bad guys with their measly little multikiloton, dirty, inaccurate thermonuclear bombs.

    It is also what (some of) we tell our kids: If a bully punches you in the stomach, punch her back harder in the face.

    So from top to bottom and back up again, we humans prefer insane strategies for conflict resolution.

    (We may talk pretty, but when push comes to shove it is the bigger shover who wins, every time.)

    Sure, just bring a robot-carried bomb into a crowded Walmart. What could go wrong? Besides, the guy they were after was a sniper, not a guy with an AR-15 spraying bullets everywhere.

    I'm not saying it's a good idea, I'm just pointing out that it has been done, and it will be done again just as soon as someone has the opportunity.

    If the insane bellicosity gene is only expressed by one person in a thousand... and there are seven point six billion persons on the planet... it's enough to make a peaceful person want to just stay home and watch the football.

    But is it enough to make a peaceful person want to repeal the 2nd Amendment?

    That's pretty fkn scary graphic.

    When I was in school, we worried about the cholos and pachucos with their switchblades, and the shit-kickers with their baseball bats, but these threats were more or less internal to the schools and constantly low-grade. Once in a while someone would get cut up to the point of needing stitches, or get a bone or two broken, but when kids brought their guns to school it was for show-and-tell, not murder-and-mayhem.

    No, no.
    Those cute little children are of course inner city thugs.
    Don't be fooled by there appearence.
    They are planted there like anchor babies and will replicate like hell.
    And then, they and their offspring take over the country.

    And at that stage I'm already dead for at least 50 years. But still.



    Just shut up and converge. "Racists ain't the smartists".
