My Big Bad Dom and his wife (Mrs. BBD) are heading out to buy a gun today. A nice family outing right?
I know most of you are American and have guns anyway. And lots of Canadians do too. And those of you in the rest of the world you all have guns.
Jeez. Maybe it's just me that finds it a little creepy.
What's wrong with it? Umm. Hell I don't know.
Left over stuff from my naive and idealistic youth maybe?
I know there are bad people in the world. I really do. And I'm not suggesting just rolling over and giving them everything they demand. That's why we have police and armies. I think it's pretty rare here in the first world where private citizens actually need a gun for anything but hunting.
Maybe if you need a gun to defend your stuff you have too much stuff. Maybe if you worry so much about the have nots taking your stuff it's because they don't have enough stuff. Maybe if you shared your stuff with the have nots, you wouldn't need to have a gun to defend it.
See, I told you it was naive.
But still. It just seems wrong.
Would you really kill someone to defend stuff? It's just stuff. You can get more.
And how do I feel about Mrs. BBD having a gun? Umm. I'm sure it will be fine. Right?
