Kennedy asintió dándole la razón. La cuestión más importante la planteó Lisa Nelson. —¿Qué pasa con el estado de salud de Rose? ¿Y si no consigue recuperarse satisfactoriamente de la herida? De nuevo Mary volvió a tomar la palabra. —Me gustaría decir algo al respecto de eso. Por lo que he leído, es muy poco probable que este tipo de herida la deje inválida. La he examinado tres veces diariamente, y se está curando bien. Le he dado muchos antibióticos y no hay signos de infección. Una vez supere la fase en la que se encuentra ahora, en la que todavía hay riesgos de que la herida se infecte, las posibilidades son muy altas, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta que se trata de una persona joven y con buena salud.

Pero comparado con la gente normal, supongo que sí, que soy un buen tirador. 22, mi AR-15 y mi MI Garand. Me gusta disparar en las competiciones de High Power que se organizan cada tres meses. —Deberías de empezar a hablar de todo eso en pasado —dijo Rose frunciendo el ceño—. Por lo que vimos cuando salimos de Illinois, la anarquía es total. Todas las casas estaban en llamas o habían ardido ya. Pasamos por barrios donde las viviendas eran de madera, y lo único que quedaba en pie eran las chimeneas.

Las conseguí igual que Kevin hizo la otra vez. Para que no me pillaran, me abrí un apartado de correos con un carné de identidad falso. Como sabía que el vacío legal tardaría poco en extinguirse, compré seis. Me costaron ciento setenta y cinco dólares cada uno. —Ahora sus interlocutores sonreían los tres por igual—. Un fiador automático es una pieza fundamental a la hora de convertir un AR-15 o un CAR-15 en un arma en la que se pueda seleccionar la modalidad de disparo. En vez de tener solo dos posiciones, la del seguro puesto y la de disparar, ahora habrá tres: seguro, semiautomática y automática.
