    Children and Guns

    Recreational weaponry?
    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

    The obvious glee of the adults was hard enought to watch. Harder still was the way they were trying to pass it to their children.

    It seemed like a real-life video game.

        The pro-gun argument would be that children learn to 'respect' guns early and therefore become 'responsible' with guns when older, but (and I'm not a doctor or anything) I'm inclined to think that all that recoil from the large machine-gun can't be doing any good to a child's body.
        _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
        _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
        _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
        _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."
