Odds and Ends

Aaaand this is why I say the US should license guns like vehicles, and everyone should be able to get any gun for which they pass the written and range tests at "The Department of Firearms." Or whose crew passes it, in the case of weapons practically impossible for even the most competent person to responsibly operate alone (e.g. artillery, tanks.) Think of it this way: In addition to written and road tests, a drivers license requires regular eye tests, but any blind person with a clean criminal and mental health record can buy a gun everywhere in the US. I used to make that statement hyperbolically until I read an article last year about some bunch of protesters defending the right of blind people to have guns, on the grounds "they can just aim where they hear!"
