A few too many clicks on the internet yesterday and I found myself reading a gun groper forum. It was actually very sad. I do think a lot of these people have vigilante fantasies, which is enraging and not sad, but some of them genuinely seemed to be frightened of the world. Like frightened to go to a movie theater with their families without packing.
There was an armed robbery and shooting (owner shot robbers) at a corner store near me yesterday. Its impact on my level of fear was zero. Shit happens.
