When will we ever “get it?”

A friend attending a police equipment trade show on the east coast reports:

“… before entering the building you had to pass large signs that proclaimed:

‘No live ammunition past this point’

Most everyone dutifully obeyed the signs, apparently without question, including police officers in uniform! They walked about all day in police uniforms, with visibly empty holsters, in an unrestricted and unguarded forum”

All this a day after the terrorist attack in TX!

Almost at the same time, friends in Baltimore report that National Guardsmen who were deployed during the rioting, all carried ARs and M9s with no magazines inserted.

Toy soldiers!

As a nation, and as a civilization, we are collectively not serious, and it is obvious!

As individuals, we must be, because “protection” is mostly myth, as we see!

“The pessimist complains about the wind.
The optimist expects it to change.
The realist adjusts his sails!”
