47. Here's a pretty good 'toon that sums a lot up about hand guns

[URL=.html][IMG][/IMG][/URL]



I agree there are far too many guns in this country and that the country no longer faces the issues it did over 200 years
ago when the Constitution was written and the 2nd Amendment added. Too few people know that enforcement of
slavery by southern militias was a major consideration for the demand from the southern states for that amendment, too.

Regardless, the prevalence of guns and the irrational belief that having guns will make people safer, plus all the open carry
laws now makes it really feel to me, like this country is going backwards. The gun culture is definitely a factor in
our recent decision to revisit finding a retirement place in another country. The irony has not escaped us, that in fact
we are going on a trip for that purpose, leaving on the 4th of July. Perhaps a time for a new independence day for us.
