I’m not keen on guns, but I don’t object to people having a reasonable number of them if that’s what they absolutely have to have and I don’t object to hunting as long as the animals killed are eaten, as long as they have not died in vain.
However, I do strongly object to people showing up at political events bearing arms. What’s with that, anyway? In the first place, why? What are they expecting to happen that they will need their trusty assault weapon to deal with it? Or is it just decoration? An accessory? In that case, why don’t they carry them around with them on other occasions, such as dropping their children off at nursery school or visiting a sick friend in the hospital or shopping in a big box store? But they don’t and why? Because, if they did , people would run screaming, “Omigod, he’s got a gun!” and panic would ensue.
So why is it OK to flash your sidearms at political events? Well, actually, it’s not. It’s just plain not and you should be locked up because you represent a real and present danger. The very fact that you decided to take that gun with you to that event in the first place provides ample evidence of that. That is something a crazy person does. A crazy person with a very small penis.
I totally agree. It’s a weird thing to do. Maybe it wasn’t way back. Way way back when the country was new. Now its just weird. I have a friend who has guns all over the house. Why I asked? His response was so he could shoot someone who busts into the house. Yeah because we know that happens all the time around here. NOT. Of course I know it could but really could you not use some other weapon? Your brute strength perhaps. We don’t live in the wild wild west or the bronx. I don’t like to know there is a gun underneath the couch pillow behind me! Where he works is a different story. I agree with his decision to carry one there. A very bad area with lots of gangs and violence where the police have pretty much given up. Just not a houseful in our neighborhood, mastershot or not.
