In Other Words — Shopping

4D665479-6077-43F0-9E8F-0C038A45F228I can’t remember the last time I was in a department store.

Or a clothing store, a shoe store, a hardware store, a furniture store, a book store, a jewelry store, a toy store.

Because I do all of my shopping online.

Well, except for groceries.

I do my grocery shopping at a grocery store.

How Is This a Good Idea?

61CA140E-0017-4F71-B918-40ABC0F02548The Trump Administration has granted Defense Distributed, a Libertarian group, the right to publish its blueprints for an untraceable, single-shot plastic handgun called “The Liberator” on the internet.

As a result, Americans will now be able to download blueprints enabling them to make guns at home with a 3-D printer. These do-it-yourself firearms have been nicknamed “Ghost Guns” because they don’t have serial numbers and are untraceable. How is permitting the publication of the plans to construct these guns a good idea?

The founder of Defense Distributed says that his company will also be publishing blueprints for semiautomatic guns like the AR-15.

Is this what Trump and his supporters mean when the claim to be making America great again?
