I just dashed this off in the last hour, trying to put together a quick, initial reaction to the terrible news out of Connecticut, so please forgive all grammatical errors/redundancies. – BK
Christ, talk about timing. The day my article defending the second amendment and right to self-defense is published, some psychopath named Adam Lanza goes on a shooting rampage at a school in Connecticut. Normally I don’t like to talk about gun policy immediately after such horrors, as emotions are running high and I find it in bad taste no matter what one’s thoughts may be on the issue.
However, since a whole lot of pundits are bringing it up again, I guess we need to talk about this incident now, not later. The school shootings always bring the calls for gun control, particular in this instance, as the victims were mainly small children and a few heroic teachers.
I’m a bit hesitant to delve into the specifics of the story, because the details tend to change rapidly as more information comes out. But let’s talk for a moment about the implications of this terrible massacre going by what we know right now.

@TheAtrium I'm not in SF very often, but I have heard of similar businesses and think they are great. We are seeing lots of high quality lunch trucks travelling around the south bay replacing a lot of the nasty ones. You can get really interesting, great food from some of them. Gourmet meals off a truck :) In SF there is an electricity associated with businesses like rice paper scissors and the redevelopment south of Market. Great for the young crowd to like and work in that area.
@LauraKinCA " Agreed, and I heartily support entrepreneurship. It is the driver in a lot of the physical real estate development in the Valley and Bay Area at large, which is a huge portion of my business. " If you're in the SF area, please check out these two businesses: http://www.travelchannel.com/video/a-san-francisco-pop-up http://blog.lowbicycles.com/post/27064936528 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wUxLoiXZOU
@Recon6 @Txazz That's really beautiful Tx, it's what keeps me believing in God, that he or she created something so beautiful. Why do people want to destroy them? It's great that a couple dared to cross the border, I hope it affords them some protection, there's not many left in Mexico either. I wonder what could have been so bad that F&G had to kill the one they tagged. Sometimes the biologists infect them with the capture equip but why kill instead of try to cure? We'll probably never know. There are so few places these apex predators can live anymore, thats why I like to give them respite on my place. I don't know how much good it does but I hope to keep it that way in perpetuity. Even though I raise livestock I like to think of my place as a wildlife sanctuary. I'm not sure how to post my wildlife videos. I see some people are putting in links to youtube or URL's to photos like the one of your jaguar. Is that the only way to do it on SOFREP?
@Txazz @ChupaCabra OMG! That is the most Awesome picture!! To actually be able to take that pic would be amazing! What a beautiful animal, just WOW....6
