Kickass, the doorstop dog, is with the keeper in efforts to limit such terms as “open carry” and “concealed carry” for use only by brain surgeons. Though a complete brain transplant so far eludes the Docs, there is an obvious professional need to sort prospective patients into “open carry” and “concealed carry” categories for exploratory surgical purposes.
Incredibly, the issue has become partisan, with the NRA-doped-up GOP holding that the only reason 155 howitzers and 50-caliber machine guns are not allowed as personal weapons is that they are too heavy to “carry.”
Reports of the latest mass shooting in Colorado did not even make the front pages.
The keeper’s plans to go grocery shopping are on hold while he tries to “carry the day” and accept the verity that knuckle dragging Neanderthals are not only still among us, they are obviously in charge, and one of them—having a bad day and “carrying”– might be lurking by the produce department.
