One feels enough hasn’t been stressed about the underlying rot of authoritarian governance that permeates the USA. Having lightly mentioned a topic that should be prominent in the concern of We The People, is the habit, as in addiction, of products foisted upon the public without assurance of safety.
Fear more than reason may support the knee-jerk reaction of hyper funding the Pentagon in order to increase defense capabilities at the same time another recent reminder of inordinate danger looms over the public within the US borders as pertains to an obsolete and flimsy energy grid.

If one may use artistic license, it seems to be an especially Trumpian-style of hubris in the phrase “it takes a good man with a gun to stop a bad man with a gun”.

Next one must accept the premise that “good men with guns” aren’t as frightened of “bad men with guns” as may be, for example, 10-year-old girls.
