Why would the North Vallejo Little League suspend the T-ball season because someone’s parent shot-up someone else’s car? Insurance issues? Political correctness? Or is it yet another reflection—after the ridiculous Boston lockdown—that we’ve become a nation of wimps? I reckon hopolophobia is both a symptom and a cause of this collective failure of nerve. I also believe open carry would go a long way towards changing the overall cultural gestalt. Public packing would help transform a cowering citizenry, happy to delegate its safety to government law enforcement officials, to a public proud to provide a vital, visible and viable deterrent to terrorists, criminals and madmen. Am I wrong?
