  •  I could have been that boy (6+ / 0-)

    When I was 12 I would go into my fathers closet where he kept a 30/30 rifle and ammunition. I would sit there and load the rifle and pretend to fire it. Then I would eject the bullet. It's a miracle I didn't kill some one. As an adult I can see how insane that was, but as a dumb shit 12 year old I thought it was cool. That  memory is one of the reasons I haven't touched a gun in over 40 years. Thanks for a powerful, thoughtful diary on such a hot button issue. I hope it opens some eyes.
