Safe Mode: On
The Second Amendment Is the Nuclear Option

By Skip Coryell
-The year was nineteen-sixty-two. The President was John F. Kennedy. The Cuban missile crisis began on 15 October and continued on for thirteen days after an American U2 aircraft took photographs of missile sites under construction on the communist island of Cuba. The Soviet Union was about to place medium-range and intermediate-range ballistic nuclear missiles just ninety-four miles off the Florida Keys. It is generally regarded as the closest the world has ever come to total annihilation.

For thirteen tense days the world balanced on the apex of the knife. Fall to the left – we die. Fall to the right – we’re enslaved. President Kennedy didn’t flinch. Premier Khrushchev backed down and nuclear war was averted. But the strategy of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) was born.
