By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the shootings at the school in Connecticut. I won’t add much to this debate, save this. A friend or two have talked about banning all guns. I own five myself, but only for re-enacting purposes, and have never put live rounds in them. It isn’t fair to keep me from having these weapons, and I did go through a full background check to get them. Which brings up my other point – Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the land, yet they are leading the nation in murders. Local laws don’t work – ask anybody who lives in Washington D.C. We need NATIONAL laws, and a reasonable debate over the 2nd Amendment without the NRA yelling “traitors!”. Okay, that’s my five minutes.
Another blogger (reached via Doggy’s World) put up an excellent post, which I will reference again, but put up here for others to use. It’s a campaign to get bloggers to sign up to be “Company for Christmas”, for others who have no family or friends to talk with on Christmas. I’ve been there, alone and feeling completely depressed while my wife is at work and all my friends are with their families. It STINKS. Bounce over there, if you have no major Christmas plans, and lend them a hand. Here’s the blog and the story:http://rarasaur.wordpress.com/2012/12/14/c4c/
Finally, there will be a new post from me on Sunday. My apologies for being rather absent, things have been kinda nuts around the old homestead. Hopefully, the New Year will bring a little more calm and allow me to annoy y’all on a much more regular basis.
Have a good Friday, and enjoy the weekend!
