Wisdom from another point of view
It seems sometimes that we get so wrapped up in what’s wrong in our own back yards that we can easily forget that our troubles aren’t as unique as we often tell ourselves they are. Everyone with two brain cells to keep each other company knows what a train wreck the current Canadian system of “gun law” is. The problem is that we get so wrapped up in it that we think we’re somehow alone in having to deal with such things.
We’re not. Not by a long shot. South Africa, for example, is dealing with pretty much the same foolishness; the parallels are astounding.
