All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Some Thoughts

In VA this year, apparently there was a bill before the general assembly to allow concealed carry on college campuses. It died in committee. Too little, too late.

Safety is something you only have when you are willing to provide for it yourself.

Why doesn’t matter. Evil men are evil and they do bad things. Stopping them from doing evil takes resolve and resources.

The police can’t help if they’re not there. Even if they’re close by, it’s no guarantee they can respond, assess the situation and take appropriate action. This isn’t an indictment against the police. Even the best intentioned cop can’t be everywhere at once, nor can they save everyone.

The shooter at a minimum broke these laws:

Obtained a firearm under false pretenses
Filed the serial numbers off the guns
Possession of a gun in a restricted area
Prohibited concealed carry
Disorderly conduct
Improperly blocking fire exits
Multiple assaults and assault with a deadly weapon
32 counts of murder
41 broken laws that we know of, one more restrictive gun law would have accomplished nothing.

In Israel they have guns in all the schools. An unarmed 76 year old Jew saved a bunch of kids. Then he died. Imagine if he had an Uzi.
