It’s long, it’s jaded and disturbing, but I’m a sucker for an allegory, much less a parable, much less a thinly-veiled (okay, not at all veiled) allegorical parable.
Unfortunately it had the result my dad intended: making me want to go to the gun show. Still, my anarchical core makes me see this as irony.
