Today is National Gun Violence Awareness Day.  I am wearing orange to mark it.

The NRA promotes gun ownership and “open carry” idiocy as a response to what it calls “culture war.”  Make no mistake, what it means by “culture war” is: non-whites.

Watch this video if you doubt that Open Carry is for whites only.

There is much to question about this methodology but the outcome is unsurprising.

Guns in the hands of ordinary citizens do not solve any problem we have.  They are much more likely to be used for suicide, murder of a family member, friend, or acquaintance, or to play the pivotal role in fatal accident than they are to repel a legitimate intruder.

Americans have taken the Westerns of the 20th century far too seriously.  They are bigger fantasies than Star Wars.  The situations that existed in those movies only ever existed in a movie.

It’s time to come back to reality.
