    If you had actually READ kenn's post, you would see that kenn brought it from another forum to show that our little gripes/funnies are not that important in the grand scheme of things. Geez!!

    who said it was loaded or easily accessible?

    Westernism is a sickness that will infect the whole globe, wiping out indigenous cultures and traditions and replacing them with this shallow-minded monoculture of greed and glamour. As philosopher Alan Watts put it, the faster you can travel between two points, the more those two points start to resemble each other; in our case, the gradual Los-Angelization of the world. Then something very bad will happen that will wipe out millions or billions of people and collapse infrastructure, sealing populations off once again. We will then relearn to be part of nature and develop intersting, idiosyncratic cultures again. This will be followed by redevelopment of technology and infrastructure, enabling cultures to meet on a vast scale. Gradually one culture will come to dominate and the whole thing will happen again unless that culture is very mature indeed.

    Was it in a gun safe with a combination lock (that not everyone should know)? Granted, we don't know the whole story. Heck, we don't know if story is even true (this is the internet after all).

    However, my whole point was that I, personally, would have had an aversion to handguns if that had been my family history. It is only my feelings on the issue. I realize the right to bear arms is just that - a right. This man has a right to have as many (legal) guns in his home as he wants. I have the right to think it may not have been the best choice given his families history. Both rights are what makes this country great!
