Jesus what a week. A mass shooting and voter suppression. we’ll star with the mass shooting in Colorado first. Tow weeks ago an appeal judge threw out the ban on large capacity magazines. Now ten people are dead and still we can’t get a good gun control law in place. AR15’s the weapon of choice is not a recreation gun its standard magazine as I remember was 20 rounds it is supposed to come with a 5 round one now. So let me tell you if you need 10,15, or more rounds to go hunting you shouldn’t be allowed a license for hunting or a permit to buy any kind of gun. I love shooting, but now I don’t own any guns. Where I live they’re too many people and no gun ranges. I had shotguns where we were only allowed to have 3 shells in the weapon. I had rifles all of which were single shot. I was on a YMCA rifle team and won all my matches. It was said I never missed anything I aimed at. I was an expert with pistols as well. But as the got bigger and my time got less I did any hunting I did with a camera. I have had guns pointed at me on a couple of occasions. Once while hunting I was shoot at by an idiot who turned around and shot behind him. That was when I stopped hunting to many people and too any assholes. I think you should be able to own a weapon but not one that was built for war. And if a town allows the sale of guns they should have supervised ranges and strict control on the transport of weapons.

Now for the other thing voter suppression. This is like the segregation days or as the refer to it Jim Crow days. So far the black community a has responded with restraint , I don’t expect that to last and I’m not talking about peaceful marches but rather the rise of groups like the Black Panthers and other militant groups that are not so restrained in there actions. It was a democratic Governor in Arkansas that sent National guard and State Police to Little rock to stop blacks from entering a white school. So when it comes to racism it’s not just a Republican thing it is a white thing Right now it looks like the Republican are taking the lead in that category. President Biden needs to act on these voting restriction laws now before its way too late . This has been FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
