    Love this podcast! I agree with Charlie completely about gun control, however painful the desire to do something. One thing that could be done but won’t be is getting guys like Jimmy Kimmel to shut up or quit crying about the fact that the government can’t protect people from mass murderers. (He seems to think it can.)

    In March 2013, I spent a wonderful week with 17 other friends from high school who turned sixty that year vacationing at Hilton Head, South Carolina. One bump in an otherwise easy-going trip was a discussion a friend and I got into—which unfortunately became somewhat heated—about guns. She had absolutely no concern about government and an unarmed populace and vehemently disagreed with my refutation that the underlying issue is unstable people, not guns. One of the last things I said was, if they can’t get guns, they’ll build bombs. The next month was the Boston Marathon bombing. Freedom has become a bad concept for lots of people who want to believe the impossible.
