Control

So there is a lot out in the media right now about all these people having guns, doing all these shootings, etc. And so of course, out comes the old argument of "well if there were no guns..."

People if there were "no guns," bad people would still have them and good people would be in even more danger. I'm not sure how many times I need to say that.

I understand that not everyone wants to own a gun, but for the criminal it is a deterrent not knowing who may or may not have a gun. Some sucker may think 5'0" blonde me would not have a gun, but they would be pleasantly surprised if they broke into my house wouldn't they?

OK. I feel better now that I have said that for the 1,347th time.

Speaking of control...
I cannot help myself! I HAVE TO FINISH HARRY POTTER! I'm finally on the last book, and I can't put it down, but I have to go to work, so I have to pull away... ARGH! It hurts!!!

Of course, now that I've read them, I'm not as excited about the last movies. There is no possible way they could portray the ultimate bad-assness that is Harry Potter from these books.

And how cool would it have been if you replaced all the wands in the movies with guns.

Yeeeeaaaaah...

Note to Self: So now, of to work... but dreaming of Harry, Hermione, and Ron.

Agreed with you 100%!
I proudly excercise my right to bear arms. Guess it's part of being in the LEO family, but even so!

Have a great one...

Yeah, I gave the other moms in my daughter's preschool class a laugh, picturing me at the door, confronting a burglar with my Glock while 8 months pregnant.
Also, it's taken you THIS LONG to read Harry Potter? (Just kidding). How far are you in the Deathly Hallows?

Disagree somewhat on the guns, but agree on HP. Rumor has it that they ruined the latest movie. I like the movies although I prefer the books (of course). Crossing my fingers that they didn't do a Clone Wars scale clusterf#@! on the last three.

A-to-the-men, sista. The problem lies in the fact that life is not valued, not that law-abiding citizens have access to guns.

Mind your Ps & Qs and you've got nothing to worry about.

If only it were that simple :-)

We have several guns in my home. I hope I never have to use any of them. But if I do my childhood of target practice will come in handy!

Stopping by to welcome you to SITS!!

I too am a HP fan - and even though I have read all the books several times, I just can't wait to see the last films. It is absolutely excellent waste of time!!

I loved the Harry Potter series too. I'm thinking I may still like it more than the Twilight series (although I haven't finished the Twilight series yet).
