Well, if one sees things from Putin's perspective, things are going swimmingly in the US. His stooge Trump has spurred division and distrust and helped Americans shoot each other in great numbers. I think when all is said and done, Trump is Putin's tool.

People have been able to keep a permit-less pistol in their vehicle for over a decade now.

Since Covid there's been a big uptick in morons shooting at each other on the freeways at night.

You know... Texas had a gun problem too before Open Carry.

Open Carry was put out there to address the problem.

Open Carry just made it worse.
