June 12, 2016

Fifty slaughtered in a nightclub in Orlando. Guns acquired “legally.” All arguments against gun control are specious, brutal, and criminal. Guns kill people. Period. The end. No counter-argument is possible. Support for the NRA should be an immediate disqualification for any candidate. The one argument that has merit– that we may need to defend ourselves from the government–may be attractive in the abstract, but under any conceivable situation we will be so brutally outgunned that our little arsenals wouldn’t matter. In the meantime, no “good guy” with a gun has ever stopped mass slaughter. One sputters and splutters with rage. No argument seems coherent just now. Much gardening. Rehearsal, then the Tonys, which were all about The Musical.
