I have read works of alternative history by Harry Turtledove. He wrote a series of books about how the world might have turned if the South had won the Civil War, and an alternate universe had occurred. Wineapple's history raises the question: what would have occurred if the Compromise of 1836 had not succeeded? Or the compromise of 1850?
How would the war(s) have differed if different personalities had led the various units and states? If the South had a military leader other than Lee? If the North had a different President other than Lincoln?

A presentation about how to stage a game in which an assassin either succeeds or is killed by good guys with concealed guns on their person
1. You need about 150 people to play this scenario. That is supposedly the number of people that often attended Rep. Giffords rallies. One of these people would be given a paintball gun (in secret) and would play the assassin. Three or four (4) other people would also be given paintball guns in secret (hopefully, they could be kept secret from each other). Now the fun begins.
2. The assassin makes his way to the “politico” standing behind a lectern, or seated at a table signing autographs. Does s/he shoot him/her (10 points) or is he gunned down before he has a chance to end his/her political career? If the assassin is wounded, then the “pc” (politically correct) shooter gets a point for each wound. If the assassin is hit in the head or center mass (a “kill”) then the “pc” shooter gets 10 points. If the “assassin” shoots a member of the crowd he gets a point. If the “pc” shoots a civilian he loses a point for each member of the crowd he kills. Remember, all this mayhem starts after the “concealed” weapons clear holsters to affirm our right to keep and bear arms. The question to answer: Can concealed guns in a crowd protect us from a nut with a pistol? Or would we believers in the 2nd Amendment just add to the mayhem?
