One of the greatest things about living in the United States is that, in most states, a person who wishes to arm themselves can still do so.
Yes, they want to be safe. Yes, they should get training and continue to train regularly to keep their skills sharp. But, unlike many parts of the world, in most of the U.S., if you want to have a firearm, more than likely, you can legally get one.
That freedom obviously terrifies most anti-gunners, though, and if you want an example of how people go completely over the top with their anti-gun hysteria, then, we need to start with the “inciting” incident.
See, Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie is, possibly, the most pro-gun member of Congress. Maybe. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert are pretty hardcore in their support for your Second Amendment rights, too, and Boebert, for example, has gone out of her way to trigger her anti-gun colleagues in Congress (see here for more on that).
But Massie has done a wonderful job of triggering anti-gunners with his recent family Christmas tweet. You can see that tweet below.
Now, if you’re like me, you liked seeing the whole family armed together, and you chuckled at the request to have more ammo (don’t we all want more ammo?). Looks wholesome to me.
Not everyone sees it that way, though. Idrees Ali writes,
A U.S. congressman on Saturday posted a Christmas picture of himself and what appeared to be his family, smiling and posing with an assortment of guns, just days after four teenagers were killed in a shooting at a Michigan high school.
Democratic U.S. Representative John Yarmuth, who chairs the U.S. House of Representatives Budget Committee, condemned his fellow Kentuckian’s post.
“I’m old enough to remember Republicans screaming that it was insensitive to try to protect people from gun violence after a tragedy,” Yarmuth wrote on Twitter, apparently referring to calls for gun control laws.
“I promise not everyone in Kentucky is an insensitive asshole,” he added.
Maybe Yarmuth is right. Maybe he isn’t “insensitive.” He is opportunistic and pandering, though, and I’ll take someone who is insensitive, honest, and has a sense of humor over someone that I can’t trust. And we clearly can’t trust the anti-gunners running around Congress and the White House right now.
Today more than ever, we need every State in the Union to give reciprocity for CCW for every permit holder regardless what State their originally from. .
Until biden is tossed of that office we are all doomed. If you can’t see what he’s doing visit China and you will see he is a communist bitch. I read many times he sold old to china as well as his son, long ago. If you can’t see around you,you need high powered glasses.
He calls armed personnel to the rescue when he needs it.
Why not be prepared himself?
To endanger others is very selfish and stupid.
The only good Ali I know of was better known as
I’ll stand with Massie on this one! There was a time when high school kids brought their rifles to school, hanging them in the back window of their pickup truck. The doors were usually left unlocked, and the gun would still be there after school. NO ONE got shot! I had MY first rifle when was 9, my first pistol when I was 11. My school had a pistol/rifle range ON THE PROPERTY. Again, no one was ever shot there…What changed? Well mostly, it was the Liberal takeover of the politics and courthouses and newspapers. Remember that phrase, “If it bleeds, it leads”…That is what the press lives by. And the fact that school teachers and parents are no longer ALLOWED to discipline kids anymore is a LARGE part of why this violence exists. The REAL “assholes”, as Rep. Yarmouth (D) called them, are HIM and his moron Democrat/Socialist friends!
I always find it ‘interesting’ (and problematical) when hoplophobes go ballistic (pun intended) over anyone who takes a pro-gun stance for any reason. Yet they never go after motor vehicles after a crash where numerous folks get killed/maimed. Seems pretty much a double standard doncha think?
Oh and never mind that Law Abiding Citizens jump thru all of the necessary hoops to legally obtain their firearms and yet criminals never seem to have the slightest trouble in arming themselves – even in those states where it is well nigh impossible for Law Abiding Citizens to legally arming themselves.
