Hey YOU people who dont want a gun in the house....

I know the excuses - we have kids and they could hurt themselves....they make me nervous....you are more likely to get shot with your own gun....WHATEVER....

To you I say, BE AN AMERICAN!!!

Have you thought that by NOT owning a gun you basically tell this Government to do whatever they want? Our Founding Fathers believed that EVERYONE should be armed and in so doing, this tells the Government not to take us for granted and straighten the hell up! ( I am paraphrasing, of course, but I picture Thomas Jefferson and George nodding in unison up on High).

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.--Thomas Jefferson

See, I told you so....

Lest we forget the late, great Benjamin Franklin:

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

I am adding OWNING A FIREARM to my list of what you MUST do as an AMERICAN in order to gripe about the Government.

Several of the other things are:

* You must VOTE and you must VOTE FOR a choice and not AGAINST someone else.

* You must CALL, EMAIL, WRITE your representatives in the House or Senate. You call them BEFORE the vote and you call them AFTER the vote and express your displeasure if they didnt do as you wished or you thank them for their service. They mostly hear from people who are hacked off or want something, so saying "Thank You" is good manners and may get you remembered.

* You must KNOW what is going on.....

* You must take offense EVERY TIME the Government infringes on your rights, in the name of safety, in the name of "fairness", in the name of whatever....Think Patriot Act, people - dont shrug it off as no big deal - ITS A HUGE DEAL and it teaches the Government they can do anything they want as long as they do it slowly....

* Lastly, DO NOT take "Help" from the Government...If I hear ".....needs help from the Government to get back on their feet" again, I may scream - You built on the beach in Florida? You built near canyons in CA (fires), you built in a flood plain, TOUGH....You took the risk....I am not against you having the right to be an idiot - to each their own, but I do object to you expecting me to pay for it...

The OK Governor just asked the Feds for help on behalf of Pecan Farmers - DUDE....HAVE YOU SEEN WHAT THE GOVERNMENT IS SPENDING? MAYBE, JUST MAYBE WE SHOULD LAY OFF THE REQUESTS FOR A BIT? Of course, the OK Governor looks like Gomer Pyle - dork...

Back to my rant....

There is a BONUS category - If you have served or are married to a service person or sent a child to war, you get a MEGAPHONE - you get to yell loudest and you get to throw tomatoes. YOU EARNED IT and I will even fork over cash for your tomato.

One last quote - this man rocked....

I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery - Thomas Jefferson




*and to Bug Killer looking over my shoulder commenting that I use TOO MANY CAPS, I think there is a football game on somewhere and a part of you that needs to be scratched ;)

as far as the kids hurting themselves with it goes, the peak year for that was 1903. the fix is in on gun control. they will make the sheeple demand it. how else can we be expected to cower in our homes and accept "protection" from the government.

Thanks for the megaphone. Using caps for emphasis is sort of like using highlighters to remember key stuff while studying; it is very easy to have lots of caps or a page full of neon yellow.

As for guns and kids there are as many unique ways to deal with that as there are families in that situation. At the time of this writing there is a loaded handgun within a couple feet of me. Fast forward a few years and kid(s) and it will be secured in some way, ditto for its friends.

Guns are tools - any one that doesn't understand that is a tool too.
