Pre-op Conversation

[this story occurred as I was awaiting surgery]

I was in the pre-op room, which also functioned as the room in which the surgeons relaxed between surgeries.

One of the doctors was telling another that, after work, he was going to go to the gun shop to buy a couple of semi-automatic machine guns.

“I didn’t know that you had any interest in guns.”

“I don’t. I just want to buy them while they are still legal. In a couple of months they will be worth double what I paid for them.”

Another guy came by. He said, “Just imagine the next shooting, when they are trying to figure out where the nut-job got the guns.”

After a few minutes gun buyer asked, “Do you think that this is a moral issue?”
