    others in their hands, yes, you do what they say until the situation improves, or it becomes necessary to take action.

    The priest said, "Today's sermon is called 'Liars', but first I have a question. How many of you have read Chapter 66 in Matthew?" Nearly every hand went up. "You're just the group I need to speak to," the priest said. "There's no such chapter."

      One of the biggest problems with guns, in my opinion, is it enables unhinged people to hold hostage and kill innocent life.  A person wielding a gun should be considered crazy and dangerous, because it is quite possible that they are.  I don't understand why our culture is okay with the arming of lunatics, but until this problem is corrected, one should avoid people who carry guns.  When engaged by a person wielding a gun, the prudent action is to de-escalate and escape.

        We have become an nation of unaccountable people.  In some ways, I think innocent until proven guilty has been blown out of pro-portion in people's minds.  The idea that it is an infringement on personal liberty to verify if someone is not sane, competent, mentally ill, etc. before they can purchase a gun is simple insane.  Makes me want to move to New Zealand.
