Hoo Boy

Those who once counted on the state to bear arms to protect them are apparently discovering the joys of the Second Amendment:

This is a story about a group of big government liberals who have taken steps to defend themselves and become self-sufficient in the face of a Trump presidency. The irony probably escapes them.
Here's Colin Waugh a newly minted gun-owner (Welcome Colin!):
An unapologetic liberal, he was no fan of firearms. He had never owned one before. But Waugh, a 31-year-old from Independence, Missouri, couldn’t shake his fears of a Donald Trump presidency — and all of the chaos it could bring. He imagined hate crimes and violence waged by extremists emboldened by the Republican nominee’s brash, divisive rhetoric. He pictured state-sanctioned roundups of Muslims, gays, and outspoken critics.

I suspect we will see an upsurge of firearms accidents.

I wish Waugh would start with something easier, like "running with scissors," first.
