Default view from a mother

I wrote this as an attempt to put my thoughts into some sort of order. A Girl and Her Gun was kind enough to post it for me and I wanted to share it with y'all.

Good for her...it's the 'reality of it all' that the anti's have a hard time with. They want to believe resorting to a firearm for self-defense is absurd and only a barbarian could think of it.

For many...violence has to hit home before they wake up...if it's not too late by then.

as i have said for years, "nothing turns a gun hating liberal into a gun toting liberal like a mouthful of their own blood."

Thankfully nothing that traumatic as that happened in this case.

In reading it found a disturbing message tho. The line "rights afforded us by our founders."

Always remember friends...rights do not come from the founders or the Govt...they come from GOD. Each and EVERY human is "endowed by his creator with certain unalienable rights". To even suggest these rights are derived from Govt. insinuates that the Govt. may revoke or infringe upon our "Unalienable rights."

I wasn't a gun hating liberal before and I'm not a gun loving liberal now. My political ideology was never a reason for me to not carry a gun anymore then it's a reason for me to carry one now.

THAT right there needs to be a letter to the editor of every paper in the country, and to every Congressman and Senator. EXCELLENT.
