“45” Isn’t Easy To Carry But May Be Necessary

By | June 10, 2023 | 0 Comments
Referring to Trump and to M1911A1, both called “45”:
Prototypically American
Loud, hard to suppress
Rough around the edges
The cause of strong positive and negative emotions
Attention-getting when speaking
Intimidating until one becomes familiar
There when needed
Heavy to carry but worth the effort
Dangerous to enemies
Protective to friends
A source of strength in a dangerous world
Impossible to ignore
Called upon only in the gravest extreme
Author’s Note: The phrase “in the gravest extreme” is borrowed from the title of a book by Massad Ayoob, a firearms trainer and expert witness on use-of-force. He was referring to the perception that human life is at risk. I am referring to the perception that the life of our constitutional republic is at risk, a perception I share.
