American gun owners are under siege. It could get worse. Another spree killer could open fire on another unarmed population. Imagine the furore if the madman or terrorist (or madmen and terrorists) didn’t use an AR. The antis would say, see? It’s guns generally. We need to limit access to handguns! Shotguns! Hunting rifles! All guns. Not to coin a phrase, it’s open season on American gun rights. The People of the Gun need to come together to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of longevity. Yes, there is that. Life insurance aside, you’re no good to anyone if you’re dead. So don’t forget to protect yourself and your loved ones. Carry a gun, both in the home and out and about (void where prohibited by law). Train to use it effectively. Store it safely. As the Brits say, it’s the bus you don’t see that kills you. Given their history of civilian disarmament and position at the top of Europe’s violent crime league table, they would know.
