Guns “R” Us?

MV5BMTQxNjA4NzA5OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTg1MzUyMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR3,0,214,317_AL_Watch the amazing HBO series Deadwood, for one (fictional?) version of how the “wild west” origins of a small town, Deadwood South Dakota, gradually evolved into a society of laws that, however, was run, underneath, by the same old corrupt gang of (businessmen) thieves. Question: given what’s going down in Oregon now, given gun sales running rampant everywhere, are we now witnessing the Deadwood TV series playing out again, but backwards? Are we devolving from a society of laws into our wild west origins?

Speaking of which, I found this fb post by my activist friend Bill Chisholm utterly trenchant.

  1. I appreciate your provocative post. I would have liked to see other chime in; as it is, I am encouraged by your perspective. I wrote to the subject of guns and its illusion of security (and identity?). Thanks for your post:
