“Using a gun isn’t sporting.”

Short one today.

I saw one idiot claiming that it wasn’t “sporting” to use a semi-automatic rifle against the thugs that broke into his home intent on who knows what.  (“They were good boys.  They dindo nuthings.”)

Well just as Kirk doesn’t believe in the no-win scenario I don’t believe in the fair-fight scenario. If I’m fighting at all it’s because I’m in fear of death or serious bodily injury. In that case, I have not just a right, but a duty to make the fight as unfair in my advantage as possible. I have a little girl waiting at home. She needs her father. She depends on her father for material support, for values education, for a multitude of things. Those things are not just a privilege but a duty. I would be remiss if I did not do everything in my power to come home safely so I can continue living up to that duty.

If that little girl means more to me than my life (she does) then she certainly means more to me than yours, not because I’m a “tough guy” but because I am not and have no interest in trying to prove how tough I am in some display of fisticuffs.

My one, my only goal is getting home safely to that little girl.

If you’re worried about being on the receiving end of that, well, my recommendation is “Don’t start none; won’t be none.” I won’t threaten you until and unless you present a credible threat to me and mine or to innocents in my presence.  So long as you don’t do that you are completely safe from me.  Do that and on your own head be it.

  1. If you can’t defend yourself, then if you ever end up in a bad situation, you’re just going to end up another victim and statistic. And I’m so sick of hearing people say that we’ll never need to defend ourselves against a corrupt government. Nooooo! That could never happen! *Face palm*

    1. Think the government is going to take care of you? How’s that working for Indians? Or those living off welfare for long terms? Or vets after completing their enlistment service?

      Those people have a myopic vision of current events, let alone the future. Some we can probably educate, most will likely need to learn the hard way.

      1. No kidding. It’s just pointless to try to get through to them. Just stash a cache of guns and ammo away in case the gun grab starts, so they can’t get them all. Gun owners really shouldn’t register all their weapons. That just let’s the authorities know who to disarm. I think most of us know the second amendment isn’t just about ordinary self defense, although that’s a big part of it.
