7. I wonder at what point

we see people simply staying home rather than feel they are taking a risk going out.

I had a job in Florida for a few years. Part-time teaching. I would fly from Seattle and back 5-6 times per year. My class was hard and people failed their exams. There were a large number of nutjobs to contend with. I never brought up politics,, but they knew I was from the left coast. Students read gun magazines in class and it was normal to see people wearing NRA attire.

Bit by bit Florida was creeping toward making it easier to shoot people. It was already illegal for somebody who was shot as a bystander in a gunfight to sue for damages.

Just before trump was put in the White House in 2016, I quit that job.
