Guns

by Thomas Goodrich

MANY ARE WE who own guns. Some of us even tote ’em. Why? Because, unlike those who do not own, much less carry, guns, me, myself and millions more have gained a glimpse of what is “out there.” 

At some point in my spin on this mortal coil I have seen the face of evil… raw, soulless evil… and it is a frightening face to behold, indeed. In my life alone I have looked into the dead, empty eyes of those who would kill you as quick as they would eat a potato chip. Remorseless, regretless, soulless… there is no conscience behind those eyes. The fact that these eyes belong to people who have committed no crime yet — or, at least, have not been caught yet — and who are running loose right now among us matters not; they are the eyes of cold-blooded murderers nonetheless. They have not committed the crime yet because the opportunity has not availed itself; but the capacity to do so is certainly there. These are the eyes that would break into your home some dark night — or sunny day, for that matter — truss you up like a pork roast, raid the fridge, hunt the house for your valuables as they chomp on a chicken leg, then, when finished, fire one or more hot bullets into your brain as their own way of saying “goodbye, and thanks for the memories.” I do not ever plan, awake or asleep, to allow the owners of these eyes to get the drop on me even once.

I am not one to react to anything. I proact. I don’t close a barn door after the horse has escaped. The door is always closed on my ranch, so to speak. Forewarned + forearmed = forbidding; that’s been my motto for decades now. I am a Kansan. I am a product of my environment. No Kansan with my carbon dating can ever forget November, 1959. That was the night two murderers-in-waiting passed from theory to practice. Hickok and Smith… Hickok and Smith…. Hickok and Smith… those two names still have the power to raise the goose bumps right down every Kansan’s back, as do the words, I-n C-o-l-d B-l-o-o-d. It is a crime we Kansans can never forget. We have a state bird, state mammal, state song, etc., and if we Kansans had a state book, a state movie, or both, In Cold Blood would be ours. For me, the most horrible part of the incident was when the killers-to-be simply slipped through an unlocked door that night and entered Herbert Clutter’s bedroom. When they shined that flashlight into the rancher’s sleeping eyes, that was the end of any potential resistance. The wife and children in bed above were now totally at the mercy of these cold-blooded beasts. This is what I mean about being proactive: I made it my mission in life to never experience that flashlight in the eyes as Mr. Clutter experienced in those, his final moments before his throat was cut.

What brings on such morose words as the above? It comes with the territory. As mentioned yesterday, I once wrote a true crime book. To prep for that story I visited some scenes of the crime — the home where the young mother was kidnapped one bright day while giving her toddler his first haircut, the perpetrator’s home where he took his victim and raped her repeatedly on a Winnie the Pooh blanket, the palmetto jungle where the victim was murdered and buried in a sandy hole. Just like every other book I have written, after a short spell I begin to live the story; begin to know and identify with the characters; begin to care about them and experience something of what they experienced. Of course, it is too late to help the victim of my true crime book. But if I told the story well enough, in all its grim and graphic horror, then maybe a few things have happened as a result: Maybe there was a dramatic rise in the sale of small-caliber pistols here in South Florida, the kind of handguns that fit nicely into a purse, fanny pack, or a woman’s hand; maybe there was a rise in the number of concealed carry permits issued; maybe there was a rise in the number of valuable lives saved. Equally, I dearly hope that the book was so terrifyingly personal that it resulted in the on-the-spot termination of many useless pieces of garbage who are bent on abduction, rape, and murder, just as the monster in my book should have been terminated.

I’ll be darn, I lived in Kansas and I never heard the story. I heard worst than this. Now, Perry Smith might of been a half-breed Dutch/Irish/Native American, taught probably no morals by a mixed family. He had a pretty perplexing life with his father and two other siblings committing suicide. I can’t really say if by the hands of church leaders he became a troubled person. This is probably as bad as saying he had a predestined fate as Calvinist would deem. Then the theory would be we are born either good or bad. Utter nonsense. Richard Hickock was raised all right but with a strict hand, whatever that means. Strict could mean he was punished when he did wrong but denies doing anything wrong. Then again, I can’t… Read more »

Sociopaths can’t be fixed. Absolutely no consciences are involved. This not to say that all sociopaths will murder people, but they unlike the rest of us, have no qualms about doing so. Like the author of this article, I have seen the abyss. Unfortunately, there are people in this world who are just no damn good. That’s why the rest of us have to stay alert and armed.

I do not think that cold blood is a threat to society. there is nothing wrong with it.
You shouldn’t take the world emotionally.
White bastards are overly emotional about the world. Whites are ruled by hysteria that moves with such idiocy as
Love Conscience Joy Freedom Happiness Tenderness
Justice, etc.
All this will lead to the fact that hysterical morons will simply die because as a result of their hysteria they will harm themselves more than any enemy.
Cold blood is necessary for society, just like cleaning the culture of romantic trash

Especially when the people who are no good are in positions of power.
On that note the ‘concealed carry permit’ may not be such a great idea…….

Well, I don’t go by terms that psychology made up to assign some form of mental disorder. Let’s call it what it is, they have no love for anybody, but pure hate. They have chosen to hate life and hate others because they are filled with a dead soul, they are lost to society. Others prefer to cheat, steal and lie. I agree with staying alert and alarmed, but while I am on this earth, I will do good to everybody.
