I wrote the following in a comment on a discussion about the
[protests in Charlottesville]. Some people felt that protesters

I went to school in Kansas. And if you go into the Kansas State
Capitol in Topeka you’ll see an imposing mural of a thug: [John

Leo Sherlock’s apology leaves
something to be desired. It’s an image which I think he believes is hard

affected, I wrote this up. Do feel free to copy and paste all of
this and post it far and wide.
I think the title of the article sums it up, Armed to the Milk Teeth, America’s Gun Toting Kids. Yeah, that’s a great idea.
