reminds me of the old trick economics question: how many people did it take to get a banana into your lunch box today?
well, you had to buy it from the store. they had to get it from the wholesaler. they had to get if off the boat in the port. the boat had to travel the sea. someone had to load the boat. someone had to drive the banana to the boat. someone had to pick the banana. someone had to have planted the tree.....and so on. there is always a connection to something else. you had to build the trucks and boats. you had to mine ore for steel. you had to mine coal to make the steel. you needed power to run those plants, from power plants....
the correct answer, is: the entire population of the earth was required to deliver a banana to your lunch box today. same with anything else. we are all inter-connected.
so find a good gun, get a good holster, learn to use them safely, and carry them everywhere you go. practice regularly.
