I think you should be allowed to have a deer rifle if you actually go hunting, or maybe a shotgun if you live on a farm........As a society, we should make it almost impossible to own assault rifles
Only in Summer can you get the bad craziness of the last week. When the weather is hot, people seem to take leave of their senses. While you are sitting in an air conditioned refuge somewhere just trying to keep one foot in front of the other, somewhere someone is all fueled up on copious amounts of light beer and bath salts, frothing at the mouth due to the heat. You show me a good heat wave, and I will show you senseless violence.
There are three ways to deal with The End of Days. Some people turn to religion, the time proven opiate of the masses. A nice air conditioned church may have some upside on a sunny humid Sunday, I’ll give ya that. Who doesn’t like a dude in a beard strumming an acoustic playing a hymn? Still, what are you going to do Mon-Sat? I have been focused on the second time proven template. I have been on a game plan of “making it all go away” with gallons of Stone Pale Ale and Founder’s All Day IPA, floating around in my kayak, and avoiding eye contact with anyone even slightly off-kilter. While this is actually a way of hiding in plain sight, you can probably let a few weeks slip past and look up to discover its Autumn. So how else do you get through Summer? The third way is one proving more popular of late, stocking up on weapons and letting it all hang out. Really going for it, you know?
Let’s take that movie theater shooting from last week… I think we can all agree that perhaps it may be time to have a real discussion about gun control.
