The world as asylum
No politickian stuff today .
I had a 9mm round pass within inches of my head tonight, while pushing the gun out of my face. It was close enough I felt the flash burn on the side of my face, and there are bullet holes in my truck.
I don’t want to say too much as the other person involved is being held for attempted murder and wanton endangerment and there WILL be a trial.
No matter what else can be said about this year, I think most anyone can say it has brought out the absolute worst in society as a whole. I saw that first hand tonight; up close and VERY personal like. For what I think is the first time in my life, I have never been so relieved to see flashing blue lights. That a deputy was driving by was serendipitous, the local PD showed up several minutes later, in part from my 9-1-1 call and more from the deputy calling it in (IMO).
And I still don’t blame the gun. To place the blame on a inert object is psychotic. The real weapon is the mind behind the hand holding whatever inert object was chosen as the tool. In this case, I really do not believe the mind was all there. That doesn’t excuse the guys actions under the circumstances, but it doesn’t push the blame to the tool, either.
I’m alive and unharmed. But I won’t just let this slide either. Civility MUST be maintained, even when the world becomes an asylum. Maybe more so.
