Once again, we have a vital demonstration of the importance of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. (I presume the Republican Congress read that amendment the other day!) The right to bear arms, and to use them, is essential to the preservation of our free society. Yes, that shooter was probably mentally ill, but his intent was good…er, his aim was good…uh…his heart was in the right place. And if he had not had the right to his gun of choice – an old-fashioned six-shooter or Saturday Night Special just won’t hack it today – he wouldn’t have killed so many people and riled up so many gun control fanatics. And nothing gets the Holy NRA going like a little political violence to explain away. I’m sure they’re in high gear on Capitol Hill right now.
