Musings on Gun Control

There is so much controversy these days about gun control, firearm and ammunition sales, magazine capacity, even some bone headed advice coming from politicians and anti-gunners trying to tell us that we don’t need a gun for self defense.  Suggestions like using a whistle to deter a rapist, or firing a shotgun into the air to deter a home intruder (what was that law Congress can’t change?  Oh yea, Gravity!  What comes up must come down.). 
My new mantra…I don’t want a firearm to kill or injure someone.  I want a firearm to stop them from killing or injuring me. 
Make your voice heard, protect our rights to defend ourselves.  If you are in doubt, look at areas with strict gun control where the criminals have easy prey with an unarmed population.
Stay safe!

  1. I laughed when I read the VP's comment. Not only is that not legal, it's not even smart.

    My non "crash pad" home is fairly near a big city, with a lot of crime. Where I am, is safe, but there's no guarantee the wolves don't roam. I don't stand a chance in hell against a couple of gang bangers with automatics with just a shotgun. They travel in packs.

    I would be as good as helpless. And THEY know it.

    Keep spreading the good word Lynne.
