no more guns, no more slaughter?

In a post upon another blog to which I contribute the occasional piece, I write in support of the freedom to own a gun!

I would like to mirror that post, with a quotation from the ‘Old West’! 

 “The Lord, He made men short and tall,

In stations low and regal.

The Lord, He made them large and small;

Sam Colt — he made them equal.”
