    Seriously. I just don’t even know what to say when the Chief Justices of our nation themselves take it as a matter of course that you would need a firearm to protect your family and that this is right and good. Call me crazy but is this really the Wild, Wild West still? Are we still pioneers? Is this really a third world, strife-addled, coup-ridden country?
    I could go on and on.
    But I won’t.
    *sigh*
