We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I remember part of the Human Weapon series on the History Channel where Jason Chambers was at a Muy Thai school... they were training and the Master of the School came over and said [heavily paraphrased by memory]:
"This is not a dance school, here you learn Muy Thai to fight."
Now if it was a dance studio AND firing range, I could see it...
Remember: when learning how to fight, learn how to fight, when learning how to dance, learn how to dance... gun owners beware of trying to mix the two.
