Why?

Many years ago I was told that it never does any good to ask why. Why is the word I used as I discover, over and over, that history is not in my control.

Or is it?

When I ask why, I am not really asking to understand actions of violence and ignorance. If I could get my wish – understand what murderers and propaganda pundits have in common – that would make me one of them.

Will someone explain to me why we have ‘gun control?’ It’s not called for in the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment recommends a ‘well-armed militia.’

A well-armed militia. To protect us from armor-plated deer?

My military family drilled the following into my head:

This is my rifle
This is my gun
One is for killing
The other’s for fun

Why was a semi-automatic assault rifle doing at the movies?
