Gun Rights Make for Good Manners and Safe Nations
By J.B. Shurk

No woman on the frontier protecting the family’s homestead was complete without her rifle, and no woman living in today’s increasingly lawless society is complete without the means and capacity to put down quickly any potential attacker, no matter the aggressor’s size.
Gun rights are women’s rights, but they are also human rights. No person — regardless of sex, size, color, nationality, or any other phenotypic reality — should ever be forced into a position where self-defense is not an option. Any person walking down the street should be in near total control over whether that walk will be his last. Police forces, no matter how vigilant or dedicated, do not supplant a civilian’s sacred duty to fight back when pressed.

When my sainted paternal grandmother was asked by a social worker if the rifle over her fireplace was loaded, her typically terse response was “weren’t be no good if it wasn’t.”
When the author wrote “No woman on the frontier protecting the family’s homestead was complete without her rifle”, I immediately thought of her as twelve year old new married woman with her thirteen year old husband leaving Germany dirt poor and eventually traveling the Oregon trail in a Conestoga wagon to meet and settle down with relatives in Portland Oregon. I never got the chance to ask her his she had to use that rifle. But I have no doubt that she would.

“I particularly like unlimited concealed carry. If the criminal regards the general public as sheep to be shorn, then let’s sprinkle in a few “sheepdogs” with big teeth in the flock.
Guess which gay to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Pink Pistol and you’re dead!
Guess which woman to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Paxton Quigly and you’re dead!
Guess which brown person to bash? Buzz, wrong, you picked a Massad Ayoob and you’re dead!”

It’s hard to imagine that the USA disarms women in the hope that it makes them “safe”. It makes them “victims”.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
