Hell in a Handbasket

...no this is not about current events, and in fact is a happy post!

James R. Rummel's excellent Hell in a Handbasket is back.  WEell, it has been for a while it seems, but this is pleasant news to me. 

You see, some time ago he had posted to the effect that he was giving up on blogging, but it appears that he changed his mind.

IRL, he teaches a pro-bono firearms safety class  for people of limited means who have been the victims of violent crime. Mr. Rummel blogs primarily on self defense with a focus on personal protection issues facing the elderly, handicapped, weak and poor. though he does occasionally opine on history, pets, and the junction between gun safety and art criticism

1 I've recently seen some "pretty-girl-with-big-gun" pictures (both real-person photographs and manga-style drawings) where the people involved actually seem to understand the basics of firearms safety, i.e. the pretty girl keeps her finger off the trigger.  That makes a refreshing change of pace in the world of cheesy, exploitative imagery.
