AN ALL AMERICAN HERO
Remember the Civil War? (It wasn’t very civil. Was it?) South Carolina started that war by succeeding from The Union in the 1800s over enslavement of blacks. In 2009 South Carolina (represented by Rep. Joe Wilson) insulted our first black President in the well of the US House of Representatives by calling him a liar. The anniversary of that shame will occur soon. Will South Carolina insult the President again?
Rep. Wilson was in the news recently in a positive way. Thank you, Congressman, for doing the right thing.
What do we need large capacity magazines for on a hand-held gun use for sporting activity? I am not a “gun person,” but recent events illustrate that clips with a capacity of 10 rounds are more in line with public safety. What do you think? Recently a little girl in Tucson was buried…the victim of a Glock 19 with a large capacity clip. God bless her soul.

They came first for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. …I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you…This I command you, to love one another.” -John 15:12-13, 15b, 16a, 17
