 I won't give up my guns! Not for you or anyone!

WOW....She has a way with words!!!!

Go ahead bash away.............You are not going to change me or my mind!

EDIT**

Why not teach the value of life? Instead of blaming guns for all the worlds problems? IF the government bans all guns from the American people, what about the military/lawmen? Shouldn't they be banned from guns as well? What happens when someone intrudes into your house? There are black markets and always will be.....those criminals aren't going to abide by the law! Why would they? They never did before why would they now?

Seriously WAKE up people!!! If Obama bans guns; why would he stop there? What will be the next to go? Can't you see what's happenin? Slowly he wants to take away the freedoms of America, while everyone is focused on the "shootings" he uses that for fresh ammo against gun owners!

Edit **2 All I am saying is I love my guns, I enjoy them and will not stand for people who call me phsyco or whatever. If people would rather just blame guns for all the problems of the world instead of teaching the value of life; well they are lazy! I hunt, shoot for the fun of it, and just really enjoy my freedom as an American and the 2nd Amendment to own my guns! The National Guard is NOT the militia that the 2nd Amendment is talking about, it is talking about the FREE PEOPLE!!! I don't care if you don't like guns/weapons, that is up to you. I don't care what you think of me, that's your opinion. I don't care if you just have a gun for home protection or hunting or fun?! But don't think this chick is going to give up her guns (freedom) without a fight! Oh and the "that locked door was there for you protection" is a picture of a WOMAN holding a revolver; not a man. I'm not judging you.....I'm just using my 1st Amendment to express my 2nd Amendment!!! EDIT***3 I don't shoot at just anyone that comes up to my door....I make sure they are friend or foe...Where I live everybody knows everybody (we live in a very small community) so if I don't know someone I'm going to be cautious.

Lets give it up to the women who shoot!!

Oh for goodness sakes.

Drama seek much?

You are a badass, we get it.

Move along.

 What a cute sweet screen name.....But it doesn't seem to be YOUR style at all.

The Miranda Lambert and the person pointing a gun at us make me want to vomit.

More guns mean more accidental shootings and more crime.

Sadly, yes... My  husband wanted one.

However, he is not allowed to keep the ammo in the house. So.. I guess we both win. 

I also consider people who own more than one gun incredibly paranoid and probably need more psychiatric help than I do.

 I own several guns. I can't say I love them. I appreciate them and enjoy them. I am thankful to live in a country where I am afforded the right to own them.

  Why do you assume those with more than one gun need psychiatric help? Different guns have different uses. You have more than one type of knife, right? Paring, steak, butter?  My handgun is in my safe for home protection. My AR-15 is my range rifle. We have shotguns for skeet shooting and others for hunting. Some guns that are antiques and were passed down and others that are just fun to shoot. We aren't paranoid people. We use our weapons for sport.

Because I have never known anyone who has more than one that owns them for anything other than "ARRRR, I HAVE GUNS" or they think they need the protection. So, paranoia.. and yes, I am also paranoid. 

I don't trust people who own more than one gun. I barely trust my father and FIL.

  That is such a strange way to think and so foreign to me. I don't know many people that only own one gun. None of them are "Arrrrr, I have Guns". LOL  They are normal regular people that enjoy hunting or shooting at the range. Many of us are formal military and like to keep our skills sharp. 

  Curiously, why are you paranoid? What is there to be paranoid about?

The only guns I feel should be legal are hunting rifles. My uncle owns many.. I have been in his house for 26 years...no clue where they are,

I'm a tattooed,pagan,pro-choice,pro-legalizing marijuana,pro-gay marriage,anti-war,non-vaxing,tree hugging,animal loving,book reading,animal testing free,depression battling, trying to raise a free spirit and letting her be who she is but still teaching her important life lessons,fighting for equal rights at the same time,don't like it get over it.

I was diagnosed with paranoia and anxiety a few years ago. i don't trust people.. the fact that people are allowed to carry around guns concealed does not help that issue any. It is hard to leave my house. 

My dad and FIL are also retired military. DH is military as well.
