    are dead? They were recently subjected to a hurricane and flooding, but they have no guns. So they must all be dead. What the heck is the matter with this man? I guess a gun cannot cure dementia.

    For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus

      shrink their government and drown it in the bathtub first, leaving no police, or agencies to aid and keep order.  Maybe he's projecting what he would do in that event.  Who knows?  I don't deal well with applying logic to irrational, nonlinear, paranoid thought. It doesn't translate for me.

      Australia did buy-back on the assault guns. 600,000 of them.

      Ordinary guns, no.

      They're not crazy people. Brisbane is fine.

      Also, after Sandy we didn't have looting. Not NY, not NJ, not Connecticut.

      The whole LaPierre story line is a paranoid/survivalist CT fantasy.
