A True Death Trap

Foreigners In Japan

I am a foreigner in Japan for more than 30 years. John makes the Only in Japan YOU TUBE channel, and the vid from him here makes the point that recently there are some who behave badly and make the good foreigners like me, by association, look not so good. Much of what he talks about is particular to Tokyo. I am in Shizuoka about an hour out by fast train.


I have found FACE BOOk people in the last few days reminding me and you of when JFK was assassinated. I worry that many failed to study that history, or were you living, as I was, at that time?
I address only one small part of that story – the gun.

An Italian Carano M91/38 bolt-action rifle was used. Simple? Should Lee Harvey Oswald have used an AR-15 or an AK-47? He could not have because those were not available. From the Zapruder film over the years, it was proved that there were 3 bullets. There was a single bullet theory that did not seem plausible over the years but was thought to be the truth in the Warren Report.

Now all of you who think the 2nd Amendment should apply to AR-15s and AK-47s, I ask of you if the mass shooters of the last 10 or 12 years (school houses and church houses) had been limited to 3 rounds from a bolt action, would the 2nd Amendment still be intact and would hundreds of lives have been saved?
