Not long ago I visited the home of a friend of mine on a whim and found his grandfather sitting on the front porch with his Garand. Now in the South this is not too unusual in the country as many a farmer has his shooting iron with him, but I had never seen this old soldier take his prize military rifle out of the Gun Cabinet except to lovingly clean it. To him, it had almost a life of its own, as he had carried it across France and Germany with it never leaving his side; now it was out, loaded with the 8 round clip belt and bayonet next to it across his knee.
This Republic Shall Stand!

I feel badly for the military and police, as they will be initially caught in the middle if things go tits up.
