People thought that Friday’s post meant I was anti-gun. Not so! There are a lot of people I would like to shoot. I am a wholehearted supporter of the Second Amendment and believe firmly that all citizens above the age of sexual maturity should be mandated to have a gun, but only a gun designed before 1789, when the amendment was adopted. Not only would death by gunfire be greatly reduced by poor accuracy and long reloading time, but the powder-horn and ramrod industries would boom creating employment in a struggling economy, not to mention that during damp weather crime would drop to almost zero.
