"You're still pouting, maybe you should take a break from posting on this subject before you have an episode or some other malady."

I'm not pouting, but rather wondering where this obsession with guns comes from. It was not this way at all when I was a kid growing up. No one I knew anywhere owned guns, went hunting, went target shooting, etc. It was not part of our lives at all. We never saw a bunch of big fat guys armed with rifles storm a statehouse in an attempt to kidnap the Governor, as did happen in Michigan recently. Or like I saw early in the pandemic, two guys with rifles standing in front of a woman's barber shop in Texas pointing their weapons at people wearing masks. Or just this past week, a woman at a school Board of Education meeting saying that she was coming back when school opened Monday with her guns so her kid didn't have to wear a mask. This is just crazy stuff. This kind of thing can't possibly have been on the mind of the guys who wrote the 2nd amendment.
