61. And thank you...

This is a very moving commentary. Thank you for sharing it.

It echoes similar liberal voices on my travels.

But, I am not sure I agree with your last analysis.

That is, in retrospect, wouldn't other radical left factions' recognition of the quintessential "power of the barrel of the gun" as a form of provoking social change (Black Panthers, Weathermen, Symbionese Liberation Army) counter the communitarian scheme and the radical-feminist hoplophobic ideology?

Or, shouldn't we also consider that both radical sides did not play a significant role within the Democratic party as we have been led to believe by reactionary America?

Having been a participant yourself, it would be quite interesting to see your point of view.

An inquiring young, liberal, and pro-2nd Amendment mind sends you his...

Best Regards,
