Things get more bizarre by the day. Last night, a conversation between some friends regarding religion, weapons and self-defense occurred, due to the shooting incident in Virginia of two news crew individuals on live TV.

The very same person indicated he didn’t need a “book” to tell him right from wrong, as his mother had done that, and he did whatever would keep him from being jailed; but, he never declared where she got her guidance or where he thought individual rights originated. There was no surprise there, since, despite my friend declaring no affiliation with any politics or ideology, he clearly believed the propaganda peddled to many Americans, while claiming a “free thinker” position.
