Bad guys

Our kids, they are well drilled in their school’s “lock-down” procedure. They all file into a bathroom and stay there, “to keep away from bad guys.”

Our daughter, she built a castle out of wooden blocks today. She closed up the windows and the doors, to “keep the bad guys out.”

You know who the bad guys are? 

Some 20-year-old kid with mental health problems who had access to guns from his own now deceased-by-his-hand mother? Certainly.

You know who the other bad guys are? 

Hard to say, I guess. Do you own a gun? Why?

I think you may be a bad guy, whether you mean to be or not.
