Posted on 04/23/2013 8:10:55 AM PDT by rktman
In the wee hours of Friday morning, April 19th, I evolved on guns.
First, a confession: Ive never owned a gun. I never wanted one in my home and, like a lot of moms, I wanted to raise non-violent children and thought keeping guns out of our home was one way to do that. When my kids were young, I didnt want them to play with toy guns in fact, I was rather insistent about it. Eventually, I realized that little boys will make guns out of just about anything bananas, sticks, the dogs paw, their fingers nothing is safe from their imaginative minds. So I compromised and allowed squirt guns and non-gun-looking Nerf guns, but nothing that resembled a real gun.

Six months from now, when all of this becomes a dim memory, “Mom” will slowly return to her anti-gun feelings.
A conservative is a liberal that has been mugged.
Obviously “dad” is not a shooter, or at the least, not well-versed in firearm handling: his finger is on the trigger of that shotgun!
Mom should get a Saiga 12 with a few 12 round mags for in the home use.
“A conservative is a liberal that has been mugged.”
“Reality...what a concept!”
Tell liberals that are waking up that even if they shudder at the prospect to have a gun in the home, even if they are still opposed to have a gun in their home, that at a minimum agree to never let anyone know there are no guns in their home, Why?
Because the ‘possibility’ of a gun, just the idea of a gun in a home is enough to deter criminals.
And importantly this is why we as a society never want the government to register our guns or lack of guns. The information shows weaknesses in non-gun homes.
A NY politician said that “they say a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged, well I habe been mugged and I am still a liberal!”
A voice from the crowd yelled out “Mug him again!”.
Sadly, illegal in the People Republic of MA.
Weapons are not for self-defense, but for peasant, er, I mean pheasant, hunting.
Witness the guy who was attacked by a bear in his back yard being prosecuted by People’s Republic.
“First, a confession: Ive never owned a gun. I never wanted one in my home..........”
She sounds apologetic, I have absolutly no problem with that whatsoever, I could care less. If thats what someone chooses to do. Thats the difference, gun people dont care if you own a gun or not but Anti gun people want to stick their nose in my buisness and take mine away.
To be fair, she’s hardly a Rachel Maddow type. Everyone BUT her in her family has had/used guns so this isn’t quite the long leap imagined. She just wouldn’t touch them because she was squeamish about hunting.
Reminds me of the mountain lion attacks in California. Most are pre-programmed to die unarmed and watch others in horror.
There’s a 1270% chance that most of those statistics are made up.
During all these gun control arguments, we always ran into those “I’m a gun owner, but [fill in the anti-gun argument] posers.
Not sure here, for these “scales fell from my eyes” articles have the same “but . . . “ feeling to them, only for our side. However they will always find a sale-able market, and if true, she is another welcome immigrant from The Dark Side.
“Those who convert are holier than the Pope”. :-)
To me people who aren't anti-gunners and who haven't been anti-gunners and in all likelihood won't ever be anti-gunners are far more worthy of being listened to. Screw this wimpy bed-wetting idiot and to hell with her thoughts. They aren't worth examining.
And don’t forget, 90% of Americans want to be disarmed and live in a police state.
It's a good thing the author didn't post this directly to FR, though. Nobody around here has any opinions on home defense weaponry. ;-)
At one time, I thought I would *protect* my neighbors as myself, if something serious went down. After I have seen what these LIEberals have in mind to do to me, I have had an epiphany too....I'll stand by and watch from a distance. F 'em.
