No guns allowed. That’s right. No. guns. allowed.
These signs are posted everywhere now, it seems, especially since the passing of the concealed carry law here in Illinois. Every gun crazy person is now sporting a gun hidden in a pocket of their new expensive “conceal” clothing. A whole new market has opened up.
There are whole clothing lines, from lingerie to outerwear, just for gun toting.
The whole subject of guns is a hotbed of controversy. I myself would prefer that guns were not hidden. You got a gun, show it, so we know you are a big shot and “armed and dangerous”. Don’t stick it in your underwear and accidently shoot your frank and beans off.
Speaking of which, there are a significant number of gun fanatics I know that suffer from small penis syndrome. You know the type. Mucho macho hard talking show off gun toters. They can’t WAIT to be a vigilante and save people from a possible criminal. They’ll shoot at the first sign of trouble.
But guess what? You can’t bring your gun anywhere anymore. The signs are up. No guns allowed, in church, school, bars, restaurants, hotels, casinos, grocery stores, retail stores…..so hey Mr. Macho, where ya gonna carry that gun? Most likely you’ll have to leave it in the car.
Which leads me to an interesting story. I was seeing a guy who had a huge case of small penis syndrome. The first time he came to visit me I did not know he was a gun fanatic. The next morning I looked outside and saw that he had left his car door open overnight. He ran out like a flash, and was relieved to find that his GUN was still in the backseat. I was livid. My brother’s kids live yards away from my house, and what if they found the gun? That’s what happens. Kids find guns, and then kids die. Anyway, I told him I did not want to be around guns but he continued to bring them (yes, multiple ones) and carry them into places even if they had a sign. He was totally belligerent about the whole thing, and was one of the final nails in his coffin when I broke up with him.
And the whole Bambi thing. Hunting. How can you look a wild, free, beautiful animal in the eye and then shoot and kill it? I just don’t get it. My ex-boss shot a deer across the street in the woods, and then proceeded to hack it up in front of the office windows. All. day. long. I hope one day a deer will attack him, like in those crazy videos. He deserves it. And much worse. So, let’s move along.
I am not TOTALLY against guns. They have their place. I myself have a FOID card, and like to go to the shooting range. If I ever NEED to shoot, I want to know how. When the Zombie virus hits, I want to use a gun, not a knife or sword and get their blood and guts all over me. Unless I can be badass, like Michonne.
In the meantime though, I am not going to carry around my gun, looking for trouble. (George Zimmerman anyone?) Most people I ask about why they carry guns say they would rather have it if they need it, then not have it and be sorry or dead. And that if you pass a law and take away all the guns, the only guys that will have one will be the criminals. Probably true somewhat. But the stats show that most gun ownership results in higher gun-related accidents, homicide and suicide rates in the home. I’m sure the NRA would dispute these stats. But anyway.
It is a Catch-22 indeed. What are your thoughts on gun?
