Maybe not for no good reason. You see, the juvenile citizens of Lincoln are duly vibrant and diverse. And the young men among them are known to engage in such upstanding first world behavior such as not wearing shirts and not sitting on proper furniture while U.S. Marines address them about “the importance of respect and honor.”
IOW, Lincoln is becoming a third world dump. The town couldn’t have a more ironic name. An additional layer of irony would be if the local NRA resists whatever the Mayor will propose, because the NRA was established after the War Between the States because Union soldiers were generally such bad shots compared to their good guy counterparts wearing gray, so enter the NRA to teach the slugs north of the Mason-Dixon line how to shoot and shoot straight should the Yankee government start another war.
