    I’ve been reading back issues of American Handgunner online and this comment by John Taffin in the January 2000 issue struck me. I hope he’s not prophetic, but I fear he might be. As he looked back at the previous century and then ahead into the new century, Taffin wrote in Great Guns Of The 20th Century:
    Not much has changed in eight years to make the picture look any brighter. :wall:

    BTW, did y'all know that Taffin's articles are on his own site, sixguns.com?

    I would really like to take a poll or do a sociology study on how the "sixty's" generation has changed our world. Things seem to have gone way to self indulgent from there. Schools have no authority to "rule" there classrooms and police get little respect. Political correctness is sickening. Illegals have more rights then we do.... :wall: And liberals think its OK to just give away the country....I'm afraid that Bush has made a swing in the other direction again more likely with his administration.....Way too early in the morning for this. :sick:

    Bingo! You have hit the nail directly on the head, Shooter. I'm a member of the '60s generation and fully bought into the drugs, sex and rock 'n' roll lifestyle and of course was a liberal Democrat and truly believed the hoo-haa about Camelot and the Kennedy mystique.

    Then reality kicked in when I finally grew up. A wife, two kids, a real job. Suddenly those "conservatives" who I had held in such contempt, well maybe they weren't so stupid after all. Then in 1977, at age 29, I got saved and along with real Christianity came a change in world outlook. That "overthrow all authority" mindset changed into preserve what is good and right and overthrow what is wrong and ... well just plain stupid, now that I look back on it.

    And here we are caught up in Camelot II, Obamamania, the man who will "change everything" but to what? He never says. The Me Generation is ruling at the ballot box and God help us.

    I just had this emailed to me yesterday and thought it funny as well as thought provoking. I took statistics on college and one thing I did learn in that class is one can make a statistic to support just about anything you want.

    Doctors

    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is

    700,000.

    (B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians

    per year are

    120,000.

    (C) Accidental deaths per physician

    is

    0.171.

    Statistics courtesy of U.S.Dept of

    Health Human Services.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Now think about this:

    Guns

    (A) The number of gun owners in the U.S.

    is

    80,000,000

    (Yes, that's 80 million)

    (B) The number of accidental gun deaths

    per year, all age groups,

    is

    1,500.


    (C) The number of accidental deaths

    per gun owner

    is

    .000188.

    Statistics courtesy of FBI

    >>>>>>;>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>



    So, statistically, doctors are approximately

    9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'




    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,
    BUT

    ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.



    Please alert your friends

    to this
    alarming threat.

    We must ban doctors

    before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
