Reply to friends about gun control post-Newtown: Not an A/B problem.

A couple dear friends were writing about the need to either arm our teachers or use a parental / volunteer quasi-militia to defend our kids during school. After I pointed out the redundancies, they asked me to expound. Below is my response. I was going to put it on three spots on Facebook. But instead …

I Ain’t Cuttin’ My Hair, Cuttin’ Till the Good Lord Comes. Till the Good Lord Comes.

2017-02-14 Update: I never intended to discuss Joshua James’ meaning of the song, “Coal War.” I was inspired by it and I just loved how it was used in the beginning of season 4 of “Sons of Anarchy” as I’m sure many fans were: I recall looking for interviews of Joshua James at the time …
