Friends on facebook, this afternoon a lone masked gunman shot up the shopping mall named Clackamas Town Center near my house. He and 2 others died. People at the Post Office and gym asked me why people do that. I wanted so badly to answer them but stayed silent. Who has the most to gain from taking away Americans’ guns??? As long as Americans are armed, the powers the be will persist in their campaign to make the public hate guns. Either the Powers-that-Should-Not-Be will disarm the public or vice-versa. Until then we will continue to suffer these seemingly senseless acts.
