 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!!

I am mentally ill... do you really think it is a good idea for a gun to be in a house with me? At least my husband is smart enough to recognize it.


ETA: And you basically said his rights trump mine...

Quoting talia-mom:

I am not getting into who trumps.  I just think it is pitiful the person supporting family doesn't have as much of a right to have things as you do.

I think he should be able to have the gun even if you are uncomfortable.   Guns don't just go off and kill people.


Quoting Sekirei:

So.. his right to own a gun trumps my right to feel safe??? 

Quoting talia-mom:

I think someone that bans guns or ammo from their home when their spouse earns a salary is sad.   It is pitiful that someone thinks they are more important than the person actually supporting the family with income.


Quoting Sekirei:

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.

Okay

But she doesn't want them at all and he does.   Why is her need more important than his?   Considering he does give them the ability to have the life they do?  So, why does she get to force her will instead of her compromising and not holding or using the guns he keeps locked up?

Just because one brings in the money does not mean that person has the final say so on any and all things.

This way of thinking falls in line with how my ex husband thought and how he 'ran' the household and his 'family'.  No good comes from this attitude.

  Why do you assume those with more than one gun needs 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. 


 I agree.

The only person I ever knew personally who had many guns was my SIL's husband . And one day when he got passed over for a promotion, he got one of his guns and shot himself ( fatally)

Others I haven't known personally who make the news have many guns and they usually shoot family members,or just create random shooting incidents .....after which the authorities find that there were many guns, less or no mental stability.

I know hunters who have one hunting rifle that they take out of their gun safes in the fall for a few weeks and that is their only need for a weapon.

I never knew or said anything about you being mentally ill.

Locking up guns prevents you having access.  Why do you get to have your way instead of him being able to have them with no access for you or your kids?

And I know dozens of people that have many, many guns and none of them have ever shot someone accidentally.   Actually, none of them have ever shot a person.


Your stories about gun owners are no more important or relevant than mine.

Obviously you missed where they were able to come to a compromise that both are okay with, that both feel comfortable with.

Like I said, bringing in the money does not give that person the automatic right to do as they please, regardless of any consequences to that decision made.

She has mental issues that her husband recognizes and was willing to compromise.  In my opinion, he is a pretty good guy for compromising and she is a pretty good gal for compromising as well.

That is far better than both of them stomping their feet and the 'money maker' using that as a reason to pull rank.  There should be no rank.

Well, it's easier to just not have them in the house. You also did not read any of my replies to truth before you jumped on me

However, he does have one, it is locked up and there is no ammo. So, once again, we both win

So what is the point in a gun if he cannot buy ammo?  Is it really that important that he cannot shoot a gun at home in case of an intruder?

You are very lucky to have such an understanding husband.   I just don't get telling someone they can't have something in my house, when they pay at least half of it.

Well, if there is an intruder in my house, they are an idiot, because I live on Ft Hood. That is a good way to screw up a career or get hurt period. 

he can buy the ammo.. it just cannot be in the house. He keeps it in his car. Once he gets a better lock box for his gun, then he can keep it in the house.
