“Here’s my credo. There are no good guns, There are no bad guns. A gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a good man is no threat to anyone, except bad people.”-Charleton Heston
“Self defense is not only our right, it is our duty”-Ronald Reagan
As could be expected, the recent shooting incidents in Atlanta and Boulder have driven the anti-gun crazies out of their holes and back into the sunlight. Let me make something clear. If you are anti gun and want to write about it, that’s fine. Write about it until you are blue in the face. But please, if you choose to do that, write in a literate manner. Form complete sentences, use the correct words and most of all, make sense. I wrote a commentary back in November about gun control and here is a reply that I received yesterday.
“The simple answer us that you are simple. You gave no need of guns. What are they protecting you from? Someone drops a bomb on your house, no more you. But the guns, likely there for someone else to steal to use against members if your family. Yea, protection.
One pistol might be considered oritection. An arsenal, you guns are a menace to your community.“
Ah yes, nothing like a well thought out argument that is presented in a logical format for readers to see. It is unfortunate, but this reader has done nothing to help his cause except show me how illiterate he is. I wish he would have explained how my guns were a menace to my community because the last time I checked, they hadn’t attacked anyone yet.
So, what do I have to offer this fellow blogger? First, do your homework on gun ownership. Second, please take a writing class so your responses make sense. Third, get a copy of the Constitution. Read it and gunderstand it.
If you need help understanding it, I’m always here to help.
Whether you like it or not, our Constitution is what guides the citizens of this great country. If you haven’t guessed, I am a firm believer in our Constitution and this is how I live my life. I am given the right to own weapons and I choose to do so. Just as an FYI, I learned how to shoot from the experts, the USMC. So I am a “responsible” gun owner.
The bottom line is this-I do not pass judgement on the fact that you may not want to own guns so please do not do so because I do. Your logic is faulty and non-existent.
