Greatness lies not in being strong, but in the right use of strength - Henry Ward Beecher

Before people got paranoid, which is to say, before 9/11, I carried a pocket knife in my front left pocket always. It was just something I had, and I knew it was there any time I needed to open a package or clean my fingernails. I started carrying it at the ripe old age of 10 or so, carried it to school, on airplanes, everywhere, and there was never a problem with it.
Now, it's a big deal to have a pocket knife. It should't be.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
in 1980 I was going to the Olympic trials, My Perazzi Mirage was in a small case. I was concerned about checking the gun and wanted to insure it for what it was worth (about 4K at the time) I was 21. The pilot was nearby and he asked me who I was. I showed him my US Olympic training center credentials and he told the person in charge he'd put the shotgun up in his cabin and give it to me when I got off the plane. He told the security people he was a shooter and he knew my name (which was BS but he winked at me) He did and when I got off the plane he handed me the case said good luck son-make the team.
It's very sad our society has come down to this where we have incidents like this almost yearly or multi-yearly. I watched most of this event unfold on the TV and even got some great screen shots off the live feed. Here's one I took of them treating a patient on the yellow triage mat.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
