I knew this was coming. As soon as the Tucson massacre happened I knew there would be some sort of floated legislation idea in the media to restrict gun rights. I don’t know whether anyone who died would have been able to escape or protect the little girl, which would have been more important than escaping, within the seconds that it takes to change a magazine. As far as I am concerned that is a specious argument. Banning the sale of new high capacity magazines doesn’t mean the killer wouldn’t have been able to obtain one.
My condolences to the families who lost loved ones this past weekend and my thoughts and prayers with those who are on the road or trying to get on the road to recovery, especially Congresswoman Giffords. It’s sad. It’s tragic. And it shouldn’t have happened.
For these people this is Personal TEOTWAWKI. Life has changed permanently for those most closely affected by this. It’s changed for the rest of us as well but we each have to do our own soul-searching to determine the manner in which things have and will change.
I’m calling it a massacre because our condemnation of this kind of thing needs to be just as harsh as the thing that happened.
My company has converted one of the cube farms into a gym. So yesterday and today I have been getting in a few sets of weights in and some cardio. Since I’m not able to participate with other preppers and survivalists in outdoor activities right now I have to focus on other aspects of preparedness.
