I have said the real reason the GOP is staunchly behind the right to have AR 15 type assault rifles is that they expect and intend to fight urban warfare here over getting and having political power. This came from one of Trump’s inner circle of supporters, Matt Gaetz, and is really from the horse’s mouth. Gaetz is talking urban war here. He’s not talking about shooting racoons, prairie dogs, feral hogs, and other varmints – he’s talking about shooting people. I said earlier, the fight to keep AR 15 assault rifles is all about the use we saw Kyle Rittenhouse use his AR 15 for – urban warfare, to shoot people.
Matt Gaetz: ‘Young adults’ need AR-15 rights or they will be ‘vulnerable’ during ‘midterm violence’
I am a Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy.
