After a little thought I’m starting to formulate the next The Alternative. Oh man these days are long. Lots to do. I’m tired. But the blog must go on.
From the left we have calls for better gun laws to stifle gun violence. From the other left we have calls for more better security, restricting immigration, more foreign aid, profiling, and The Minority Report. From the middle we have… Tadah! Silence.
A caller to Rush Limbaugh today laid it out well. He said the State of Florida is responsible for the magnitude of the slaughter because it is illegal to carry a gun where alcohol is served in Florida. 10% of adults in Florida have some kind of permit to carry a gun. But in a bar there are none. There were 300 people in The Pulse that morning. If 10% were carrying a gun, the shooter would have had some resistance.
How many loved ones of these victims will, rightfully, blame the state? Prolly none because the state is now god. Heaven help us.
