I'll probably get some lectures about this one, but I really don't care. With age comes the ability (sometimes) to think things through.
I wonder if that means I'm through with it?
Oh well.
I've been reading the comments on blogs concerning yes or no about my right to have gun(s).
I have a right under our Constitution to bear arms. Finis.
Now, something that should really be attacked by all these people who are worried about responsible gun owners: I do NOT have a right to keep and bear a driver's license. (Neither do you.)
Not one, single, written right. I have the privilege of having one, but absolutely NO right to it. Now, I've got two potentially one and a half to two ton killing machines sitting in my driveway. The statistics about road deaths are far more scary and reveal more death dealing than our statistics on accidental and deliberate gun deaths in our country.
But no one suggests we eliminate and do away with automobiles. Why, shucks, no. In fact, one of the first things we do is see to it that 16 year old children (complete with the fog this age group carries around in its collective head) gets a driver's license and a car. And that will enable it to kill many of our citizens. And no one will raise a hue and cry about this.
In the words of Puck : "What fools these mortals be."

You won't get any flack on this post from MY lil corner of the world. I'm in total agreement.

re: The illegals suing the rancher... when did we start granting civil rights to non-citizens? Enquiring Minds(TM) wanna know...

Kind of figured that, Buck.
As for the "civil rights" for criminals and non-citizens, I really don't know Buck. Mebbe we should write to Barry Obama and ask him?
