Everyday I see news articles from around the Country about banning firearms or magazines or both. Recently Governor Grisham issued an illegal thirty (30) day ban on all firearms carried (on person) in Bernalillo County as a "Public Health Order."
Daily I also see news articles from around the Country about traffic crashes that kill someone. Some involve a person under the influence, some intentional, some disgruntled, some accidental, some sleepy/tired and some with no explanation known.
I went outside to my driveway. I set several of my firearms down on the ground next to my truck (Ford F-350). I observed both my truck and firearms all day. Neither tried to kill me or anybody else. You know why, they are both machines! Neither do anything, without SOMEBODY purposely following a set of operating mechanisms to make them work. On their own, they are pieces of metal, plastic and whatever else. I thought WOW, if a gun is responsible for a person's death why isn't a vehicle.
I haven't read any news articles where Congress or State Legislatures around the Country are trying to ban any vehicles even though it seems that vehicles cause a lot of deaths.
Made me wonder? Is it the machine's fault that someone operated that machine in an illegal way or is it the person's fault that operated the machine in an illegal way.
Regardless, I'm glad I have horses. So, when they finally decide to blame all the machines instead of the people who use them, I still have a way of getting around.
