How to control a gun. Yes this is real "gun control"
I tracked down the animal that made this disturbance in the soil and I should have eaten him for dinner.
I will use the word "gun" because this is for normal folk.
Well we all should fight against horrible automatic rapid fire machine guns in the hands of young disturbed people. Duh! But none of that makes sense because those words really do not describe a damned thing.
But for interest and some bridging of a gap I will use words here to help my buddies who have never been to a firing range gain some understanding.
"I ain't never met a gun that kilt nobody". If that sounds stupid to you, slowdown and begin a journey filled with truth. Guns do not kill anyone, people who have access to them do kill people with them. But more deaths are caused by that damn 3 thousand pound beast in your driveway that while you text is a mega bullet aimed at destruction.
Guns do not kill people, assholes do. I am sorry is that harsh? Cars do not run there own self down the danged freeway, PTA mothers with a screaming child in the back seat and a phone to their ear do and they do kill people.
I hope we have got this into perspective. To knowledgeable I repeat my apologies but will use guns here throughout.
Mama is right but God made this world so get in sync.
I got no reason for guns
Gun barrels must be pointed down or straight up at all times except when in use. Safeties must always cover the red except when the gun is poised to be used. A weapon must never be held in a position of pointing it at your adversary unless you have reason to kill your adversary and I hope that is never more than a rabbit.
The sideways holding of a weapon is a sign of a psychotic person. Never do it.
The discharge of a weapon has huge consequence. Do not do it unless you are ordered to or if the person who would order it is not there but would order it.
That thing you hold is called a peacemaker, only use it for that purpose.
Now girl you are ready to play.
Go there often and enjoy and learn to love your gun. I like multiple weapons so I have a blast shooting them. I am not inclined to auto shooting things, to me they are yuckier. I love trying to shoot things at over 100 meters. That is a football field away.
Did I mention that I deplore guns and would like a world with out them. I one time ate a quail. I killed it with a rock. That was mano y mano. I built a bow once and ate the squirrel I killed from an arrow therefrom. But I always walked with that bow pulled back and pointed up or down and not at anything but my prey. One day I shot a tortuous with that bow and it bounced off the shell and he was my pet for a few years before I put him back in the hollow where I took him from.
This boy loves swords. I do not get it but won on ribbon in fencing back in my teens.
Think of life in a different world
Hi my name is Eric and I grew up with honest men carrying six shooters on their belts and rifles on their horses. When a man is my small town challenged another man's honor there was hell to pay. Believe it or not I am talking about Arizona Northern Country in the 1960's. I tell you when the nearest hospital is 200 miles away and the local law enforcement is 100 miles away and a mountain lion just ate to of your sheep that lion needs to be kilt and kilt now.
I woke up one morning at around 1 am to the blasts of shotguns racking my home. We children scurried down a ladder from up in the loft to watch dad and Emmet using a rake to pull out about ten vipers under our home.
Guns have saved my life more than once.
Now this whole deal about guns and government
Well I damned sure believe that if the gov wants to break into my home the agents will pause if they think I am fully loaded an cocked and ready. Perhaps that pause is good. Perhaps it makes it personal and it should be.
Did I tell you we have no guns in my house. But did I also tell you that at the teaching and largess of the American government I can kill you with a simple Bic pen. I am confident that if you broke into my home to rob from me you would leave with what you came for. But if you broke in to to harm you would not leave.
So for most they must learn guns and gun safety --- what I call gun control.
Stand fast with that weapon and use it to love those you love.
I do not do sissy pants, never have and never will.
We do not do pacifist here. My City is called Fighter Town USA.
We do not broker or cotton weak here. On the ping pong table in the garage we just oiled and powered up a remote car. We will also learn how to play ping pong there and how to properly oil a firearm on that same table in that same garage and with the same attention he spends on learning how to play the piano.
We will pillow fight today and we will go to the range next year.
That might sound real crazy to come from a man with no guns in the home but it is our harsh reality. And besides that, Firing a gun at a controlled certified firing range is fun. Sorry for those of you who would never think to do it. It is really fun. Personally I like to get three pistols and switch around between the 22, 9mm and the 45. But I have not been in years and will enjoy teaching my young son. Hey I have only been downhill skiing a few times in the last 5 years and will enjoy that also.
If this truth is hard for you, take a gulp. And next time you pick up your phone while driving cuss me.
99.9% of all discharges of a firearm are done with the intent to hit a mark. Tell me miss goody two shoes PTA chairwoman, do you drive your car with the same care --- and now you are lying. That is my son and daughter in front of you. Do you care so much about a deer but not so much about my child that you deal with your phone while driving? I will bet one hundred percent that NRA active members use their cellphones less than school moms on a busy day while they are driving.
Do you teach about weapons to your children?
Will you make sure that your child is educated about weapons?
