It's "the nut behind the bolt" that make guns dangerous

Despite attempts to link Sunday's mass shooting [in Texas] and the carnage in Las Vegas to a "gun problem" in the United States, I'm not buying. And not just because I happen to believe in two things that aren't particularly smiled on in today's "post-Christian" society: the Second Amendment and God. Guns, like rental trucks, are inanimate objects. As I was taught as a youth, "it's the nut behind...

See With A Hunter's Heart

I can see the old Ohio farm with the eyes of my heart, anytime that I like. I intersected with its fallow fields and fence lines for what was really only a brief period of my youth before moving back out West. And every time that I look, the mental image is always the same: It's November. Fat raindrops patter stalks of grasses that lie flat to the ground. Sodden soil curls like dough around my...
