Subject: RE: Guns, to my friends here at Mudcat
tomtom. I'm not much of a city boy. I only goto San Francisco under duress. Even here in the southern part of the SF bay area, there are way too many people for me.

Well I am a lifetime member of the MacFarlanes. So I guess being a bit reactionary is in the blood, eh? Well I think it was my g-g-grandmother that was forced off of her land in Scotland, so the English could raise more sheep. But that was then, this is now. To compaire London with all of the British Isles, isn't very fair to either. That's like looking at Harlem, in New York and calling all that the USA. Carring a hunting wepon there is about as silly as carrying a boom box and bopping up Mt. Shasta. Yeah, you can do it, but...

Tomtom, I don't think there is an easy answer to the questions raised here. A big part of the problem is that there are just too many people in too small a place. Every place is a bit differant. One of the tough things that folks try and do is to place their morals on other people. (Christions are real good at this.) Even if they can't follow their rules themselves.

Another good example is this...the internet. This is the very first time in the history of the human race, that there is real free speach. This very fact is driving some people crazy. Why with free speach, people might look at naked women, or talk about bombs, or be Jewish, or play banjos, or what ever the reactionarys want to jump up and down about.

Anyway, if you were here Tom, I'd buy you a good Anchor Steem beer, and play a sea song for you.

Happy Friday.
