Emotionally Exhausted

Just finished Wednesday's podcast, most of which dealt with Norway. I am emotionally drained, saddened and so very frustrated. And I don't envy Marshal Halloway, who's been on the phone all day to Norway. I can't get that line from Vachel Lindsay's poem "The Leadened-Eyed" out of my head:

"Not that they died, but that they died like sheep..."

If you don't have a CCW, get one today. If you do have one, get trained. If you're trained, carry your gun every single day. There is evil in the world.

I'll be perkier tomorrow...

Michael;

Please express our sincere condolences to Marshal Holloway. In the face of this tragedy, we've all become Norwegians with our brothers and sisters.

I'm looking forward to your 'cast about this desecration. I'm at odds with just about everyone I talk to -- they can't understand, or I can't sufficiently express, why I would continue to support guns so strongly with this horror.

To paraphrase Edmund Burke; All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is to ensure that good men can do nothing.

Vachel Lindsay committed suicide by drinking a bottle of Lysol. Treating your innards like a toilet bowl is no improvement on dying like a sheep.

Here is an update to a story that hit the news last summer. Remember the guy who fired a couple of warning shots into his lawn when a gang of 20 thugs showed up at his house in NY? I don't know why it wasn't covered as much as the original story (lol) but I did a search and found out he was not indicted.
