Face it: America's a violent place. There are lots of murders all the time, like in Detroit and Chicago and DC. And anyone can get a gun, it's easy as pie. Actually, it's easier than pie, since baking a pie takes a couple of hours and buying a gun, at least when it's a private sale or at a gun show, can be accomplished in as little as five or ten minutes. And about those background checks many are clamoring for: I'm confused as to how that would even help, since not all psychopaths have a record of wrongdoing that would raise a red flag. Besides, we now have fresh proof of that new adage, "Guns don't kill people, bombs do."
So I stay holed up here in Maine, and avoid walks in the woods during hunting season. Sure it's boring sometimes, but there are no bullets grazing my forehead, and that makes it nice.
