Vought A-7 Corsair II on Flickr.

The A-7 was based on Vought’s successful supersonic fighter, the F-8 Crusader. It’s airframe was shorter and lighter than the Crusader’s. The Corsair II replaced the A-4 Skyhawk in the US Navy’s inventory, as well as a variety of other aircraft in the Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard.

My dad worked on A-7s aboard the USS Kennedy as an avionics technician.

There is one big truth that used to hold from sea to shining sea and is now most keenly apprehended here: an argument against the individual right to bear arms is an argument that the average American is incompetent to contend with the most fundamental moral questions of life, death, and justice. It is an argument that assumes ordinary people cannot be entrusted with democracy.
