For John, BLUF: We have people so afraid they would turn the nation upside down. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Mr Fred Read, writing in Fred on Everything, 11 Dec 2015, gives us "Allahu Akbar! : The View from 2018".
I wonder if he wrote this before or after he heard about White House Press Secretary Josh Ernest saying that the problem in San Berdoo, the 14 dead, was really about gun control?
Frankly, we are seeing a group of Americans out there who a traumatized by the Second Amendment. People who are all for the right to die,♠ but who are traumatized by 30,000 people a year taking their own lives.
There is a terrorist threat out there and it isn't just about guns. Remember the Boston Marathon Bombings? But, terrorists will find ways to get guns if that is the tool they wish for. California laws didn't stop them. The often praised European gun laws didn't stop the recent events in Paris. Yes, we need reasonable gun control, but we need to follow, not subvert, the Second Amendment.
