a word about guns..

July 29, 2011

“After a shooting spree, they always want to take guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.” – William S. Burroughs.

Not the best guy to quote.. Burroughs and his wife liked to get really loaded and play William Tell. Burroughs would have his wife put an apple on her head, then he’d shoot it off. One day, this little game didn’t go so well. Burroughs accidentally (?) killed his wife.

I think law-abiding citizens should own guns, and have the right to. But I think playing around with guns, especially when drunk, high, or both, is an incredibly bad idea.

I think the quote above, by Burroughs, is great.. but his behavior certainly was not.
