As this is a Full Moon Friday the Thirteenth, It seems perfect for announcing a bad decision:
My foray into gun blogging: Not One More Gun Law
effort was inspired by Richard Martinez, the feckless father of a
murdered UCSB student. We all grieved for the students and their families, but Martinez' actions were unsupportable. He waved the bloody shirt of his son in an emotion laden rant against millions of gun owners; completely ignoring the true killer and his enablers. He screeched
out the vapid, impossible demand of "Not One More!" The performance looked out
of place, over the top and perhaps... staged. And it was totally
reflective of the message of the media and the
I think that this situation absolutely requires a really
futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part. And I am just the
guy to do it. Hence, the Not One More Gun Law blog. As the tagline "The
Philosophy Behind the Trigger" implies, I hope to examine the deeper issues of
self defense, an armed people, an active populace, the 2nd Amendment,
and perhaps counter a few of the shallow thoughts that rattle around the
head of the body politic. The discussions are intended to be short and focused. I find many times these discussion stretch out to pages of text,
and frankly, few have time for that.
I invite you to take a look
at the blog. Be vicious with your criticism. If it sucks, point it out!
(Well, we know it sucks -- now.) If it irredeemably sucks, point it out! Provide your recommendations. If my time would be better spent cataloging belly button lint, say it!
