Yes, you are quite correct. My girlfriend is affraid of weapons. Her daughter lives with us (senior in high school). But she won't have much to do with me as I am the "outsider". They have both been instructed as to my "no touchy" rule as far as my weapons. My girlfriend's two sons are no longer in the house...they've had to move out. Both are 23 & 25 years old. T'was about time eh? Can't live at home with mommy til your 30. I was out on my own at 18.
Her oldest son is the one that came to attack me. Anytime there's been a disagreement in the home, the daughter calls him and he thinks he's the calvary. He and the 23 year old are no longer welcome. The situation is uncomfortable. I'm not their father...never tried to be. I'm 51 years old, have four kids of my own. But her boys are trouble makers...you know...tough guys. They found out that this ex-hockey player gives no quarter. No one walks in and stomps on me. The situation seems quiet for now, but the pattern dictates that he'll return and make for more trouble. Of course, I will stand my ground, and this time he may not be as lucky. I'm not taking anymore crap...from anyone.
So, this spring, I plan to educate my girlfriend on the weaponry. I am a well trained survivalist, and was formerly affiliated with a para-military unit. I still have a very small group of friends who I affiliate with on a regular basis. We're law abiding, tax paying, decent people. No criminals allowed and are devout patriots. We love our God and country.
I keep tabs on many of these groups and lately, there are a growing number of them with rapidly expanding membership. Everyone needs to protect their 2nd Amendment rights. Gun control doesn't takes guns out of the hands of criminals. It only leaves law abiding citizens unarmed, and without means to protect themselves. My idea of gun control is "aim true, squeeze, and don't miss".
So to all LAW ABIDING citizens...protect your Constitution, your Bill of Rights, and your country. Remember those that have sacrificed their lives for your freedom. Obey the laws of the land and for God's sake be honest! Stand your ground and do not let thugs and criminals ruin your freedom and infringe upon your rights. It's called being an American.
