Thank you again,sir, for a piece with a solid foundation in the real world. I had an exchange with a modern Lib recently, who, of course, insisted that with new ant-gun laws, crime would decrease. How did Kipling put it ? But when we disarmed they enslaved us, . . .Anyway, I told him that what he had, was a Theory, and would only apply to Future incidents,. A Law, which would be used to punish someone who broke it, only applied to any Past incident. I asked what one should do in a situation involving this thing called, The Present, during the attack of a violent aggressor. Of course, Ireceived one of the usual mega-doses of verbal deflection. I find myself becoming Walt from the movie Gran Torino.
