    is very likely the reason the plutocrats are promoting civilian disarmament through gun prohibitions.

    I honestly believe that plutocrats want to ruthlessly suppress the increasingly probable worst-case outcomes without risking their necks, much less resorting to the expensive business of restoring order by destroying their own property.

    The whole decade needs an asterisk.

      Regarding  gun control, and the need for new laws, has to do with the "elected officials" in Northwestern New York. They tell the crowd assembled there that the average citizen doesn't need weaponry,because we aren't at war. And someone in the crowd responds, "Well if we aren't at war, why do the damn police have to be dressed like Storm Troopers, and equipped with such sophisticated military style weapons?"

      People are so clueless on the issue. The average person has no idea that most of the people in the ghetto who got their militant automatic and semi automatic weaponry first got those things through the CIA leaving tons of the stuff in railroad yards  across the USA. One of the things that Richard Pryor would often riff on.

      Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
