TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

Gun users, gun abusers and political views

Here is something to explore:

"Are conservatives more likely to stick to a diet than liberals? The answer might be yes.In a paper published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers say there is a link between political ideology and the ability to exert self-control.In a series of three studies with more than 300 participants, the authors found that people who identify as conservative perform better on tests of self-control than those who identify as liberal regardless of race, socioeconomic status and gender."

Now if we can have alcohol abuse why not gun abuse? The good guys with a gun and the bad guys with a gun have one thing in common: the GUN.  Alcohol abusers and alcohol users have one thing in common: alcohol. Food, sex, etc  users and abuser have one thing in common: food, sex etc. 

Impulse control of the 'users' contrasts nicely with the lack of impulse control of the 'abusers' in the areas of eating, sex, drugs (of any sort), violence etc. The lack of impulse control means more social problems created by people with liberal values and more  jobs for people with liberal values.
