The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

Evidently, that Concrete man was not structured around enough rebar.

Although he may have believed that he was indeed a Concrete man, you non-Washingtonians need to know that the Concrete mentioned in the story is a small town on the mainland, somewhat near our island archipelago.

Concrete serves Jean and me as the entry point to a National Forest with no shooting restrictions, and it even includes an old, disused limestone quarry where shooting is quite safe.

The town is called Concrete because that's what its main industry once was. Both in our islands, and also on the nearby mainland, there is lots and lots of limestone that lies quite near the surface. The limestone was heated in kilns until it lost all of its moisture, at which point it became lime cement. Mix that with sand and gravel, both also easily available in this area, and you have concrete.

Just past Concrete, on Washington's northernmost state highway, #20, is Sedro-Woolley, named in part after the local Indian word for cedar, and in part after the first White settler, Mr. Woolley. Sedro-Woolley was the place where the concrete makers of Concrete went, to get cedar trees to burn in the cement kilns. (What a waste of good cedar!)
