As someone who doesn’t live in America, I am somewhat amazed at how broad the definition of “The right to bear arms” has become.
It seems to me ludicrous that members of the public have the right to congregate in public with military assault weapons, one wonders how long it will be before they gather with anti tank weapons and military drones when they next wish to take over a Government building.
I’m rather stuck for any further comment, except to say what a very peculiar place America is!
About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent.
Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work.
I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise.
I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013.
My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie.
I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes.
I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

Please note that not all Americans are crazy conspiracy-theorist bigoted rednecks!
I agree with this. Being a American here that has a legel right to carry a lethel weapon, a very good portion of us have common sense in having this right. It always has been the right of “WE THE PEOPLE”. There are many, many Citizens of our USA that carry a gun, but most of it you don’t see. It is something that should not be shown or advertized and not to be flashed around. It’s for protection from those who would want to do body harm to you. Again, common sense previls in all cases. Carrying a lethel weapon does come with flashing it around at all.
Yes I had noticed quite a large proportion appear to be completely sane and sensible people, it’s always the minority that let the side down.
Their ridiculous reasons for being there that day are irrelevant. The importance here is just as you say, why oh why are the citizens of America allowed to carry weapons in public? Self defence really doesn’t wash.
To us in the UK it is utterly bizarre isn’t it?
Yes, bordering on criminal!
