Second Amendment – A Deliberate Belief

Second Amendment - A Deliberate Belief Stars wash from the sky as the world and its mistress sleeps. The sun is just up over the horizon, as the gear is loaded into the truck.  If you want the best spot at the gun range, you best get up early.  The afternoons are a flurry of volleys, excited laughter as a youngster takes up the sport for the first time, range officers going into full point on someone who isn't monitoring their trigger finger.
