Y’know, I’ve seen sidearms openly carried into grocery stores by persons that look like they’re itching for a firefight to break open in the produce department. I don’t trust the mentality, shooting skills, or judgment of any non law enforcement officer to promote “public safety”. I do feel a sense of anxious dread that I may wind up dead in the crossfire of “pacification” or “self defense”. Or that MAGAts who know I disagree with their world view may think it’s time to “stand their ground” and permanently finish what they threaten to do. I could never imagine as a kid living in a country so flush with deadly weapons, and the cavalier attitude of using them, would take what I would once believe was hyperbole, into the realm of possibility.
