I still have my guns; maybe it’s time to drop the paranoia

Well, it’s going on two years now and I have not seen any federal government vans, cars, or those big rigs roaming our town or the county, for that matter, taking everyone’s guns.

It seems there is more ammunition on the shelves and not as many people buying guns of all types. I guess the fear has passed, or maybe I just never saw those crafty G-men, or maybe when I was eating lunch at Golden Corral they came down the street on the Wells Fargo wagon.

It’s fear that drives those individuals who constantly believe the USA will drop off the map. But, then again, fear is a key tool for someone to use as a cheap tactic to gain people’s trust and spread hysteria. I thought we as Americans believe in common sense. Guess not.

I will close for now, as there is someone at my front door. Uh oh, could that be the G-man? Sorry, just the mailman.
