Gun Ownership

graphic from

People who refuse to arm themselves, still want someone else to protect them.  They think the police should drop what they’re doing at a moment’s notice to run to their aid.  Don’t they know that donuts get stale and coffee cold when abandoned?  If they had the decency to arm themselves, officers would not be forced to take their lives in their hands to rush over and save the ass of police hating anti-gun nuts.

Having had vast experience with this sort of citizen, I know they want their neighbors to drop what they’re doing to come to their aid.  Right.  The non-gun owners are more often than not the sorts who will do nothing to assist anyone in their neighborhood, but seem more than willing to accept help for themselves.  They are the type of people who would view a sign like the one displayed at left in a poor light.  They think they are the only ones allowed an opinion, an opinion that they can force on everyone they meet.  That their gun-owning neighbors also have rights.

A word for those who want to have guns but are afraid/will not use them.  Store the weapon in a bath of Vaseline.

Always a good idea to be neighborly. ;-)

Typical liberal a-holes: they don't like guns, so they think NOBODY should have a gun.

I say it's better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.

I have a .357 Magnum revolver, fully loaded with hollow points, and should someone enter my family's home without permission, God help them.

I am pro-gun but unfortunately have never learned how to shoot one. Hopefully, next semester with help from the College Republicans I will learn how to fire a couple types of guns. The sign was quite humorous. Everyone should help their neighbors out as much as possible.

When I was fighting crime and suppressing evil, there was a "wise saying": The most dangerous person in the world is a woman who doesn't know how to use a gun. She can hold a pistol in one hand, cover her eyes with the other, turn away and fire - hitting her cheating husband right between the eyes, at one hundred yards."

Theresa: most women that have the gumption to pick up a fire arm find the .38 Special their weapon of choice. It doesn't kick all that much, a typical woman's smaller hand can manage this weapon, and still gets the job done. A double action revolver is the way to go as well, no bolt to jack back, no mechanical problems, jams, safeties, etc. Just point it at the dirt bag, aim at center of mass, pull the trigger, very high reliability.

Everything, however, invovles trade offs: the downside to a .38 is that it will not be very effective firing through walls, a feature that comes in handy, especially for women.

You would have to move up to the .357 to do this.
