Last week I talked about the increasing possibility of violence in the US.
Today, we (apparently) see another example of the state of affairs in this nation. Several members of the leftist leadership have received what appear to be pipe bombs. All the politicians from both sides of the aisle are in a tizzy over this (big surprise) and Trumpette made this statement today:
I just want to tell you that in these times, we have to unify. We have to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that threats or acts of political violence have no place in the United States of America.”
I have to wonder if both sides would be as worked up if the bombs had been targeted towards non-politicians? No one on the left was worked up when an Antifa mob attacked an elderly driver who just wanted to get where he was going.
With the elections underway I was already focusing on being more alert for potential threats. For the foreseeable future my little Ruger LCR will be relegated to the safe. Replaced by something with a little more capacity and quicker reloads. I also plan to review my EDC gear and see if anything in there needs to be beefed up.
It is a sad and dangerous time for America. Please pray for our nation…
