GUNS: Bring back values of Greatest Generation

The Greatest Generation has been praised by all sections of society. Nevertheless, progressives never ask them for their opinion when selling their new age agenda. To them, the Greatest Generation is quaint, archaic and to be treated as invalids.

I was born in 1930, and my family fought in World War II in the Pacific with the Marines on Guadalcanal and the Navy off Okinawa. We never had students killing their classmates. We students were armed to the teeth with shotguns and rifles. Free dynamite was readily available to all students. Young males had the corny cowboy “Code of the West.” We faced our enemies fairly face to face; to shoot an unarmed student was not in our code of ethics.

The progressive destroyed that code and substituted a drug culture, contempt for family, feminization of males, anti-religion, academic social engineering and many other destructive agendas.

Bring back the Greatest Generation’s corny values and the killing in schools will stop, not unworkable and bureaucratic gun control.
