“An Armed Society Is a Polite Society” 0

A polite society is a clean society.

Just before 10p.m., Tuesday, a 17-year-old boy was cleaning a .22 caliber rifle at in the 300 Block of Anderson in Brookville, according to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan.

The boy didn’t know gun was loaded when it discharged into his abdomen and the bullet continued through his back, according to Soldan.

I continue to be skeptical that so many persons have shot themselves while “cleaning” guns. For one thing, if you are going to clean a gun (if you know what your are doing, at least), step one is to take the damn thing apart.

I think that “cleaning” is often “playing with” misplet so as to save face.
