Dear Dog, Snoop, Stupid, or any of the legion of names you can’t get straight,

As an American, you or I have the RIGHT to own a firearm. You or I have the FREEDOM to exercise that right.

That means that you have NO right, in deciding what I “need”. It also means that for what whim of the moment floats your own boat, you make your own decision!

Don’t think what you ‘know’ that I ‘should have’, ‘should do’, ‘should act’, is correct, because you are dearly misinformed!

Well said! I may or may not need a firearm. Statistically I'm not likely to ever fire any of mine in anger, or even pull one on someone to stop them. I could probably go through life without them. However, if I do happen to ever need one to defend myself or my loved-ones, I will desperately need one.

But more to the point you were making - I absolutely need the right and the freedom to own firearms. The moment we let the government tell us what we need or don't need we have tyranny. That very moment. Not some indefinable time in the future when the government may or may not subjugate us - right then and their we have tyranny. Because the moment the government starts dictating terms to us, we have lost our freedom and our liberty to make our own decisions. Choose to arm yourself or choose to be a potential defenseless victim - either one. The important thing is that you choose for yourself, and I choose for myself. No one tells us.

Hey lib lurkers - let me put this in something maybe you'll understand. Would it be ok for the government to dictate sexual partners to people? "I'm sorry, we've determined the homosexual lifestyle causes too many medical complications and disease, you'll have to be hetero." Same thing "We think firearms, features, magazines, etc. are too dangerous for you..." Same exact thinking. So all you lib lurkers help us celebrate freedom and diversity here. Or are you as hypocritical as we all think?
