We are acclimating ourselves to the public slaughter of our fellow citizens, over and over again, because our political system has become so riven with well-financed cowardice that it can’t do anything about it, and therefore, we must have a country in which being asked not to bring your combat weapon into a fast-food joint is a blow to liberty tantamount to the Writs Of Assistance, and we must have a country in which we accessorize deadly weapons or else we will forget our birthright as free citizens.
