Channel Islands, California

My wife has been killed by a machine which should never have come into the hands of any human being. It is called a firearm. It makes the blackest of all human wishes come true at once, at a distance: that something die.

There is evil for you.

We cannot get rid of mankind's fleetingly wicked wishes. We can get rid of the machines that make them come true.

I give you a holy word:

Kurt Vonnegut, Deadeye Dick


  1. The trouble with guns, if you have one, you're more likely to use it, and the sole purpose of guns, as so eloquently stated above, is to kill.

  2. Thank you for this. So beautifully stated, so clear, so heart-fully right on.

  3. If a rancher needs a gun to protect their herd, okay. If a hunter needs a gun to shoot food, okay. Neither one of them needs an assault rifle. These should be banned. Period. No reason for people to have them.
