“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

A Simple Proposal

This latest shooting shows that adults with guns just can't be grownups about how they store and use them. From now on, only one handgun or rifle per owner and no automatics, semi-automatics or large clips. No people under 21 at a firing range, period. Gun store owners who refuse to do the proper checks to be prosecuted to the fullest extent.

When I applied to work at a babysitting service I was interviewed with a thorough written test about childcare. When I asked if I would be told if parents had guns in the house? "Nobody has ever asked that."

"Yes" to all of the above.
