*** begin quote ***
Until we, as a society, relearn that guns are tools, we will continue to put armed citizens like Roderick Scott on trial. Until we, as a people, remember that guns are technology – that they are neither good nor evil, possessing neither volition nor intent as inanimate objects – we will continue to uphold victimhood as morally preferable to using force in self-defense. Until we, as a society, stop vilifying law-abiding, productive members of society who take responsibility for the protection of their homes, their families and their property, we will continue contributing to the problem of crime in an increasingly out-of-control nation.

It may seem incongruous to talk about guns on the birthday of the Prince of Peace.
BUT, (there is always a big butt), how do we have peace?
By being “peaceful”. And that translates to everyone having a “piece”.
Heinlein said it best: “An armed society is a polite society.”
