This was posted on facebook a few months back by a friend of mine, yesterday she got her concealed carry permit and bought a Glock 17:

a few hours after the fact & we've all settled down, but I'm still pissed that my girl hurt herself badly as we're going into a club & seriously needed stitches. We finally spoke to a manager to show him where she got hurt at & then they wouldn't let her back into the club. I tried my best to be civil,  but I have no tolerance for incompetence & people that will not take accountability for their actions or lack there of. I literally nearly took out the fat SOB incompetent security guard at the club that thought it was acceptable to flip us off because his lame ass doesn't pay attention to his surroundings & actually do his job & instead resorts to childish behavior. I should've dropped the fat mother f'er that was 3 times my size at his knees & made him cry like a little pussy. Instead I told the fat f%#k to get his lazy fat ass to the gym & pay attention to his patrons. My girl was a tough bad ass & refused to get stitches, sat there without flinching & stoically , so I went to the nearest pharmacy & took care of her & the situation. Guaranteed heads are gonna roll after this shit!!! I'll see to it!!! Mama bear is always taking care of the ones she cares about!!! I guess we won't be dancing tonight. Too bad someone is too much of a pussy to dance face to face with me. The bigger they are... the harder they fall!!!

I have known her for years and always thought she was harmless and kind of amusing but with a gun I think she is a lot less funny.  The sad part is that next time she gets mad she'll probably pull out her new gun and possibly hurt somebody and also change her life for the worse no matter what else happens.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      Anyone who brags about having a short fuse and then accuses others of childish behavior is revealing their own insecurity and feelings of helplessness - to control their own behavior.

      I'll put money down that this person says things like this to their kids,

      "You don't want to see me mad."

      And after some kind of abusive punishment, "Look what you've done. You've gone and made mommy/daddy mad again. If you weren't such a bad girl/boy...

      I feel really sorry for the kid.

  •  It is sad that we have come to accept as "normal" (5+ / 0-)

    having over 105,000 people shot every single year, of which about 32k die. In a culture that accepts something like that as well as movies/tv shows that glorify violence, it is not rare to find people feeling like your friend (I don't condone it and most people don't publicly express such violent rage/hatred but many feel that way). Add to that easy access to firearm that have no effective & uniform regulations and you have a recipe for lots of "justified" shootings (at least in the eyes of the shooter).

        It is all about money, in this case blood money.

      •  I do think that there will be some more (3+ / 0-)

        horrific vigilante killings. Alcohol will be a factor.

        Alcohol degrades judgment and response time, like Mr. Dunn in Florida. (Alcohol + short tempter + gun = ruin your life).

        Only after some upper class or upper middle class folks get shot (either by police or by someone who feels compelled to intervene), or when people like George Zimmerman and Mr. Dunn's go to prison will we start to see a shift in the culture of gun entitlement.

        It will take a critical mass of people who become willing to speak publicly about how they ruined their own lives when they used their gun. It will take people whose kid shot someone with their gun, people whose teen committed suicide with their gun, and people who took a life in a moment of poor impulse control and poor judgment. People who become willing to say to people who can relate to them, "Before you guy that gun, before you keep that gun in your nightstand, or put it in the glovebox, every time you decide to carry that gun in public, think about me. Don't be me."

        Eventually, I hope we will have public education campaigns or adverts that advocate leaving your gun at home whenever you are going to be drinking.

        Something similar to "Arrive alive, don't drink and drive."

        "Going out with friends for a drink? Think. To come home safe, leave your gun in the safe tonight."

        I'm not a poet. I hope others can find better words.

      embrace of violent imagery in public that we even have state governors accusing their political foes of rape. And then smugly defending his remarks immediately afterward.

      So we have normalized public violent threats made by people with poor impulse control, and keep it very, very easy for people with demonstrated poor impulse control to go out and purchase a deadly weapon, without any training in firearm safety, firearm mechanics, and the laws/regs of lethal use of force.

      I've been thinking a lot about the later. How can someone be competent to carry a firearm for self defense if they have no understanding of where their rights begin and end?

      To make just one analogy (albeit not a perfect one). In all other areas of the law, someone who is not competent to understand what they are signing is not legally bound by the contract. Yet with deadly weapons, there is no mechanism to assess whether the person understands the boundaries of their right to own/use/carry a gun.
