About.com is a hive of suck and fail. It’s basically useless except for finding the latest irrelevant web ads. Imagine my surprise when I find this foolish screed from a pediatrician who is incensed that he isn’t invited to give his ignorant advice about guns to parents.
Now no one comes to me asking if that pesky chest pain is heartburn or a heart attack. Who would be stupid enough to ask (or listen) to a doctor about gun safety? Now consider what the American Academy of Pediatrics considers good gun advice
·Talk to your children about the dangers of guns, and tell them to stay away from guns.
·Find out if there are guns in the homes where your children play. If so, talk to the adults in the house about the dangers of guns to their families.
Luckily, no doctor has ever been stupid enough to try to talk to me about guns. My current doctor is a flaming libertarian. I think he has his own Wookie suit. I have a ready answer if ever run into the other sort of doctor.
Here’s a clue-by-four. If your claim is that gun owners are a small minority, and that gun control supporters are a large majority, you shouldn’t be outnumbered in blogs and on Twitter by several orders of magnitude. It’s one thing to be a fringe wacko. It’s quite another to be a fringe wacko who’s being an obnoxious ass while trying to infringe on other people’s rights.
Real Estate agents are in a uniquely dangerous situation. They are isolated inside empty houses with unknown people. I am pretty sure that the agent that showed me this house had a pistol in her purse. The next door neighbor had an intact male pit bull loose in his front yard with no one watching it. My agent made it clear that she was able to handle it should that become necessary. Since she was 5’4” 120 lbs, and lacking in any obvious dog wrestling skills, I assume that meant that I wasn’t the only one carrying a pistol.
Look at this photo.
Anyone who would deny these ladies a fighting chance is a heartless bastard, and no better than the thugs and criminals who would attack them.
This just goes to show that guns, in the hands of motorists, leads to violence. The evil gun lobby is directly responsible for this yute possessing a firearm. After all, why else would a simple disagreement between honest citizens lead to shooting?
