Although it may not seem like it, I take time on my posts reading, editing and making sure what I type reads like what I want to say. Today, however, I am going to type and just go with it…..
My Dad was not a hunter. I have only sisters and they never cared to hunt, yet as I have written before, we always had guns in our home growing up. All my friends homes had guns, some of them were hunters, others not. I remember seeing these in almost all the pick-up trucks around where I grew up. Most everyone had them, no big deal, just the way it was.
Hubby doesn’t hunt and the boy has no interest in it either. Let me say I would never turn down venison, but I just don’t care to hunt.
I have always had at least one firearm as an adult for protection. I am not a gun collector, or spend much time at the range. I am just like millions of Americans in flyover country who own a few firearms and some ammo for protection and like it that way.
The recent push to limit my Second Amendment rights in any way just pisses me off. Pisses me off in a bad way. I usually get aggravated, but I am actually pissed.
These liberal doofus clowns in DC have no idea what they are about to stir up. Not only are the gun enthusiasts who have all kinds of different firearms, shoot tons of lead at the range and can ramble off firearm facts like I can spout running shoe information upset, but people like me who really don’t think about guns much….until I am alone at night with my child and hear a noise, or see something suspicious in the neighborhood or someone starts yapping about banning guns they see fit to ban.
Yep, they have been living in their little uppity bubble with armed security for far to long and have forgotten about people like me. I like having my firearms, I like not being in a federal data bank for possessing an item that is legal and protected under my Second Amendment rights. I like it that way, I get pissed when someone tries to change that, any of that.
I’m not stupid. My bachelors may be from a state school, but I’m a pretty quick thinker. I know the slippery slope you are on. You have already slid down it a bit since the 1994 Weapons Ban. Now you are adding things like a detachable magazine and one military style feature, one of which is a pistol grip. You know how many weapons have that? You know you can add that to most shotguns and rifles? Magazines over 10 rounds? Know how many simple 9mm pistols have that?
I know all the many little things you have in your bill that can label a gun “banned”. They are weapons I and millions of others may or may not already own to protect myself and my child. You think I’m okay giving up my Second Amendments rights when you
tell lie to me and say firearms we already own will be grandfathered and we only have to be in a data base to retain them?
Silly you. I know that list is for the next phase you plan to try to make law after the next (and sadly there will be one) mass killing. Confiscation. Of course you do, but you think me and millions like me who are not gun aficionados will be sleeping while this is going on.
Oh, honey, you are so mistaken. We are all up in your woodwork, and we’re about to come out.
That’s what the nation is afraid of….I feel safer already.
She wants my shotgun too?
First of all, I’m firing through my purse, not taking time to pull it out. Second, 10 rounds for each of the 5 security guys you have may seem like enough, but I am limited to just what I can carry in one firearm.
I have mixed feelings about this. Part of me says..You go Girl!….then the thinker in me starts to think of many negatives. My biggest concern is the areas our armed conflicts occur now are Muslim. I imagine it would be quite horrific for a woman to be taken prisoner in these areas. I believe 100% of these captured American female soldiers would be raped plus many other vulgar actions enacted upon them. Also, I believe doing so in front of captured American male soldiers can be used as a way to get vital information from either soldier.
Only because he knows Dems will not forever be the majority party.
Me thinks he can smell 2016.
Thank goodness its the weekend. I can scan my house for the goobs of assault weapons it holds.
But hey, let’s keep making ultra violent movies that make shooting and killing with big guns seem super cool to some weirdo shut up in his basement and off his meds.
He attained the rank of sergeant, he was a soldier. Surely there is an area they can bury him in?
