I have written about guns before. I believe that responsible people should be allowed to own guns for sporting purposes. Having said that I agree with Ronald Reagan that owning guns shouldn’t permit someone to own a AK 47 for sporting or even protective services. I also believe that guns like cars should be handled by people who have been trained properly and have passed physical and mental tests.
The below is a tragic illustration of a sad unnecessary death. I also note that the grave of a Marine killed in Korea is nearby.
Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori- it is sweet and honorable to die for one’s country
