…Guns

Let’s talk about guns.

I know this will make some folks mad and, if you’ve known me for a while, you are very aware of how much shits I give about making folks mad. 🙂

First- no one wants to take your gun away- most of us want better background checks, a way to keep guns out of the hands of folks with mental issues and to take away those guns that can kill hundreds of people in minutes.

You can keep your guns….calm down guys. You can still play Barney badass and shoot rabbits or have it on your side in Wal-Mart….well, OK…not in Wal-Mart any longer. (Thanks Wal-Mart- I finally don’t totally hate you and everything you stand for.)

Second- if you can give me ONE good reason why you need something like an AR15, that can fire roughly 45 rounds per minute, then I’ll set down and shut up.

Now- let me go ahead and debunk some of the stuff I’ve heard so I don’t hear it again.

“It’s my ‘Merican right!” – Well, wrong. The 2nd Amendment was written when everyone had muskets. A properly trained infantry solder could load and fire roughly 4 rounds per minute…see the difference. Our founding fathers- with all their knowledge- could have never predicted that humanities love of violence would grow and lead us to create such weapons of death as we have now. That “right” would NOT have been written if the guns of today existed back then. So- if you believe in the 2nd Amendment, then you believe you have the right to own a musket and I support you!

We can agree that you have a right to have a gun- one that you can use for protection or hunting.

On to hunting- if you need 45 rounds a minute to kill Bambi- you need to get some chicken and beef from Kroger- like most of us- hunting isn’t for you.

I’ve also heard “I like takin dat der gun to da firin’ range”- eh, get another hobby- try collecting toys and trading cards- it’s amazing! Plus, you can fire other guns at the firing range.

I do understanding wanting a gun for protection but, again, if you need a gun that fires 45 rounds per minute- stop pissing people off so bad that you have crowds of people after you and you won’t need that type of fire power. I’ve pissed thousands off and I don’t feel the need for those type of guns.

Finally you have those folks who don’t trust the government so they need those types of guns to take out Uncle Sam when he comes to “take the guns away”. Let’s be honest with ourselves- there will NEVER be another American Revolution…that time has passed.

If you have AR15s- they have ARMY TANKS. They have missiles, rocket launchers and even drones that could just fly in and take you out. Back in the day- the government had muskets and the people had muskets and it was an even playing field but that time is LONG gone guys.

You have your gun owners and your gun nuts- the gun owners mostly agree with all of this but the gun nuts are the ones that thought Obama was “coming to take our guns” and they are the ones that still believe us liberals want to rip your guns away but that isn’t the case at all.

I’m as liberal as it gets and I want you to be able to have your gun. I want you to be able to cuddle up next to it at night and spoon it with the thoughts of safety and protecting your family- you do you boo….however….you don’t need guns like AR15s and our kids don’t need to continue to live in fear of getting shot in math class.

Let’s meet in the middle on this one guys…you can have your “pew pew pew pews” but you don’t need the “pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pews”

Love, Peace and Sharkyness
