Wherein I give up my gun.

I'll start from the beginning.  I was raised around firearms my entire life.  My father is retired military and taught be to shoot a small .22 pistol.  He taught me responsible, safety-conscious firearms practice.  He taught me how to properly use and care for a weapon.  And he taught me never to point it at anything I wasn't fully prepared to kill or destroy.  As I got older, I was permitted to fire his .45 pistol, which was somewhat of a rite of passage.  He would never have allowed me to fire that weapon unless he know that I was a responsible, trustworthy shooter.  Going to the range and putting little holes in paper may sound pointless, but for me, it was the one thing my father and I could bond over, and I have very fond memories of being with him at the range.

by Apost8

They are taking over our society!  Soon it will be illegal to go to church or kill things with my shotgun!  Soon all of us will have to stand in line for HOURS for a single loaf of stale bread!  That TGIFridays you love so much will soon be replaced by a Government Soup Kitchen where weak thin gruel is doled out to the masses on an every-other-day schedule!  If we are to save our Christian(TM) Republic, we must root out and extinguish all signs of Marxist cancer spreading throughout our country!  Follow me across the Iron Curtain for more...
