I have nothing whatsoever that I wish to write about today. I am instead reading what other bloggers have to say, even though most of them, being outspokenly progressive, are emotionally opining about the recent mass killing of children with firearms.

I have nothing to add, nothing  intelligent to say on the subject.

A firearm is a weapon that launches one projectile or more at high velocity through the confined burning of a propellant.

The National Rifle Association

While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the NRA has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly four million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs.

As former Clinton spokesman George Stephanopoulos said, "Let me make one small vote for the NRA. They're good citizens. They call their Congressmen. They write. They vote. They contribute. And they get what they want over time."
