Every time I post something to my Facebook page on gun violence, open carry, or 2nd Amendment, I find another one of my friends (usually a real friend, not a phony Facebook friend) who violently disagrees with me.

So open carry is a good idea. Right up there with Stand Your Ground laws. Yeah. We homo sapiens are the most level-headed species ever, and nobody could ever make us do anything irrational, no matter how drunk we get. (Yeah, open carry in bars, this must come from the Darwin Award people.)

People, we are not arming ourselves against an evil government. The people who want an evil government are the ones making profits arming us, and more profits getting FuxNews to inflame our paranoia and hatred of… just about everyone but rich people, who are the ones profiting and the ones ripping us off daily by not paying us living wages for the living we provide them.

I am not against the Second Amendment. I am not against gun ownership. But ALL our freedoms come with limits, and making any of them unlimited throws the balance off. We need to be reasonable. I’m afraid that will never happen, and we will end up in open warfare between whatever groups our Owners tell us to hate enough to kill.

Hugs,
Me
