3_1_17_3_2_250x700

“There was a mom, dad and 6-year-old son doing the paperwork to buy a handgun, and a guy complaining about the sight on the gun he had recently purchased. Yet these little bits of shaped metal and plastic, fired from slightly larger steel and plastic, have caused and will continue to cause unspeakable pain and sorrow. Bullets speed through the air ripping into the flesh and organs of human beings from the worst criminals to first-grade schoolchildren. I was struck by the banality of it all. Potential lethalness sold with the casualness of prescription medicine.” –  John Hubbuch in Field notes from a Florida expedition [at oakpark.com] [h/t JL]
