So, there’s this American TV show called “What Would You Do?” ….. They hire actors to play a bit, most often to present a dilemma of some sorts, and then check the reactions of the non-actors in the immediate surrounding. I recall watching an episode where they hired under-aged children trying to coax adults into buying alcohol for them.
In this scenario, they hired actors to pretend to be buying a 7 y/o boy a gun at a gun shop. And, they hire a woman to object to buying the gun because of the age of the child.
You’ve got to watch the reactions of the customers at the gun shop! They’re fantastic! And, for the people who like to divide us by races and ethnicity, note the diversity of the people reacting! And, note the near unanimity in asserting parental rights ….. as if 2nd amendment rights weren’t even part of the question! I think it much more productive to celebrate our likenesses and singularity of thought rather than focus on our insignificant differences.
Call me crazy, but, I think using the 2nd amendment and parental rights as issues is something people of all stripes can unite in, and show the crazy lunatics we can come together as Americans. Wouldn’t that just blow their minds? …. Well, it does blow their minds (what little they have of them). And the media rarely lets you see such unanimity in thought. We just have to show this stuff more.
Now, mind you, I believe the reactions would be similar in many states in the US, including Kansas, but, God bless Texas for this!
