First, let me state that I’m a born and raised Texan. As such, being a gun nut is inbred in me, like that family who lives in a house trailer out in the woods. I had a 22 in my hand before I started school. And yes, I had to walk barefoot on a dirt road two miles to school and carried my lunch in a Steen’s syrup pail.
As a kid, it was common to see someone at the feed store with a hog leg on their hip but did we shoot one another? The world seems to have taken a big turn for the ditch in the last decade or so. My dad wouldn’t leave the house without a rack full of rifles to defend himself in case of some type of uprising. Still, to my knowledge, none of our clan has ever raised a weapon in anger or robbed a 7-11.
Our hearts go out to the students and teachers slaughtered in Texas. I cannot begin to imagine the pain felt by their loved ones. It is unlikely that we will ever know what pushed this teenager over the edge, but something needs to be done.
Hippies used to say, “Make Love and Not War,” which I’m beginning to realize should be repeated every day. The pandemic, which has cost over a million lives in the United States and is far from over, seems to have put another nail in the coffin for you and me.
I’m sure that once the chest-beating dies down, the Republicans will go back to business as usual, and nothing will change. While I’ve never had the urge to own an AR-style rifle since they are useless beyond shooting your next-door neighbor. I don’t know what the solution is but know that something needs to be done about gun violence.
Today’s Pearls Before Swine cartoon was right on point, which drove me to today’s rant.
I’m Larry Archer, and I write erotic stories for the huddled and yearning masses. Foxy and I are swingers in real life. I write erotic stories based on the things we do and see. My smut is explicit and hardcore but with a somewhat plot. My porn novels are generally positive and fun, reflecting how enjoyable swinging has been for us. If you’re interested in checking out my stories, I publish them at all the popular outlets.
