    The country was in peril; he was jeopardizing his traditional rights of freedom and independence by daring to exercise them.” ~ Joseph Heller, Catch-22

      Editor's Note: This diary wraps important historical issues right around our biggest contemporary challenges. The author asks us to acknowledge our violent history and the way gun laws have been used to further racial discrimination, concluding hopefully with a comment about choosing dialogue over fear. -- LilithGardener

      I hope the last 4 or 5 paragraphs you had planned become a followup diary.
