One child is conversing through the internet with a friend who lives across town; the other is writing a letter to a girl some 10,000 miles away that he knows because his dad and her mom read each others’ blogs and participate in the same gun forum.
[I spent last weekend using a radio to talk with Eastern and Western Europe, the Philippines, Russia, China, and South America. Thanks to the wonders of modern signal processing pulling people out of the weeds I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to hear or talk with made it that much more fun.
The wonders of modern technology make this an awesome place. I’ve made more contacts through gun blogging and GBC than I would have previously at any other time. I can easily find and independently verify information on my own. It’s a wonderful age, that the media and the gun grabbers I think are starting to hate. It’s too easy for people to figure out the anti-gunner lies, or discover facts they would rather have us not see.
Guns, bringing people from all over the world together. Even kids. -B ]
