No matter how much I disagree with him, I’ve always liked NBC’s Tom Brokaw. In his days on “Today” and “Nightly News”, he was the epitome of class and talent.
“In this country, everything seems to get settled by a gun” was his frustrated take on the Orlando attack.
Brokaw was lamenting the online debate triggered by the terrorist atrocity…which was itself “settled by a gun”—the guns wielded by the Orlando P.D.
All kinds of things get settled by guns, Tom: taxes are collected, presidents and their families are protected, wars (like WW2 which Tom is well-versed in) and, yes, a nightmarish mass execution of innocent clubgoers.
Settled by a gun. In the right hands.
