Yeah I know she’s an idiot, yeah I probably shouldn’t bother, but this throw-away tag-line from Joan Peterson pissed me off.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Stay safe and try going gun free.
“Try going gun free”??? Like its some sort of default or some challenge to be disarmed. Like Joan needs to put some thought into it this Thanksgiving to make sure she doesn’t go to Thanksgiving with the family strapped.
Now on a post where she equates gang crime with lawful carry, and calls an SKS an “AK-47 Knock-off” and an “Assault Weapon” (note not as a throw-away scare-term, but her screed goes on about the merits of the ’94 AWB that never included the SKS….), I’m sure it seemed “Sharp” or “Witty” to a woman who is likely the mental inferior to the bird we’re going to carve into on Thursday.
Yeah I have all these people who read my blog, and there are a jillion other blogs that spend their time talking about the merits of various gun type, the various ammo types, accessories, holsters, holster types, concealment methods.
It seems my blog gets several hits per day looking for information about shoulder carry because its both a slightly unorthodox carry method, and the method I prefer. I also get a lot of questions and mail about my Kahr PM45 “Eleanor” because a subcompact lightweight .45 ACP of these dimensions isn’t a common gun, and people are curious.
Its not easy to start carrying all the time, it takes a pretty solid effort. Also Joan must be well-aware from her constant lies, and twisting of the truth, that our choice to carry isn’t showing off, or even a fashion statement (BTW go check out my shoulder carry article…its a good rig, and I’m a huge fan of my S&W1911Sc with the Rosewood Slim-Grips. Its a nice rig, and I’m VERY happy with it, it was fun sharing Galco Miami Classic love with Nancy and Shorter Half at the convention, but overall it stays hidden.
Nope we carry because we’ve weighed the benefits vs the costs of carrying and have decided its smarter to carry. As much as your organization cooks up poor studies to say otherwise, asking us to “Try going gun-free” is like asking Joan to try driving across her state for the Holiday without a seat belt and the airbags disabled. Its just a stupid idea…and she knows it.
These are the people who support gun control. I get that the cause is dying HARD, but really with stupid and lies like this, I’m insulted they have the credentials they do.
Can they hurry up and meet with oblivion already?
