I am an evil “pro gun extremist” as far as some anti-gun extremist are concerned. But guess what, I am proud of it. I am proud of the fact that I have gthe ability to protect myself and others if there happens to be an opportunity to do so.
I have read on the blog-sphere that some in the anti-gun crowd feel that we should “just let them rob you and no on will get hurt.” How can anyone with even a thimble full of common sense believe that a person can be robber, either at gun point or not and NOT be harmed? Maybe not physically, but I can guarantee they will be harmed emotionally! I can not guarantee that the criminal that is willing to threaten my life to steal my possessions will be satified with leaving me without injury, there have been many cases of people that “complied” with a mugger and still got pistol whipped.
Have I always been this way? No, I have not. I probably don’t look like a “pro gun extremist” either, though I am not sure what one is supposed to look like. I am sure there are some of the anti’s out there that could help me with that bit of info, but I don’t feel like asking. LOL I am a bit of a homebody, I like to cook, can, sew, read, and being a mom and grandma. I work full time and go to school full time. I do have one tattoo, does that give me “the look?” I am probably the least likely person that people would think is “packing heat” when I am at the grocery store, but that is the way I like it.
So, to all those out there that feel that I should not have right to own the means to protect myself, I say “sorry, but I am going to anyways!”
