Until the fat lady sings*

Published July 20, 2022 by Nan Mykel

When the great backlash occurs, who will be left standing?  Doesn’t history tell us that extremes in population sentiments swing back and forth?  Enough usually becomes enough.  Surely common sense will settle over our land soon?  Wishful hoping?  I’ll vote. What else do you suggest?

I liked this from the post of  Dr John Persico Jr.,  a vietnam vet:  https://agingcapriciously.com/2022/06/08/why-guns-will-not-make-you-safer/

“We can reduce the lethality of guns by limiting clip capacities and by eliminating rifles that were designed for military purposes and not hunting.  Why anyone would need a rifle with more than a three round capacity is beyond me.  Rifles should be for hunting or target shooting and nothing else.  Any game that you are hunting will be gone long before you can chamber and fire your third round.  A .223 caliber was first designed for the military in Vietnam.  I had to qualify on an M-16 in 1965 when they were first issued.  It was like shooting a bb gun.  Easy to shoot with a round that was designed to wound and not kill.  They said this would take two or more people out of the war instead of just one dead body.  The individual shot by a .223 would be severely wounded and would need someone to take him back to a medic or out of the war zone.  Read any of the gun magazines today and it looks like they are selling guns and accessories to someone who is going to war.  Helmets, bullet proof vests, high-capacity magazines, laser sights and guns more fit for killing humans than hunting are touted and readily available”
