A Red Letter Day

People are surprised, it seems, to discover that I am not only pro-gun, but vehemently so. I strongly advocate the responsible ownership of firearms. I actually feel guilty that I haven't maintained my skills in that area, and will be taking measures to correct that. Everyone should at least know the basics of how to safely operate common firearms. Everyone should know basic firearm safety. I feel that should be taught in schools.

When one of my coworkers learned that I had gone out shooting one weekend not that long ago, she was surprised and confused. I had shattered her stereotype of gun-users. In short, I had all my teeth and was not married to my cousin. The question some people ask is "why"?

Today is a great demonstration of some of the reasons I believe everyone should own a gun: 1, 2, and 3. The fact that reasonable people on my friends page read between the lines and feel the need to make proclomations like this is a reason.

Oh, and if you're ever looking for a group that has a nearly inarguable stance on why gun ownership and the second amendment are crucial, don't look to the NRA, ask these folks.
  • A retired army colonel with a M-60 hanging on his wall is far less dangerous than a crackhead with a .38 special. Indeed, I concur that firearm safety should be tought to everyone, and in school. Only when people fully realize what they are doing will they ever be able to use them properly. And gun ownership shalt be (when I am dictator) compulsory. Honest citizens outnumber the criminals. What will one crachhead do with his .38 in the face of a dozen "bystandars" who all disagree with him via a symphony of Glock-17s in unison? Statics have always shown crime goes down in states with easy access to CCW permits. Lock & load, says I!
