Big day at work today. I might draw a thing while I take a break, and it might not necessarily be a goofy Sonic drawing. What should I draw? Maybe a goofy Sanic drawing? What? What? Whaddayawant???
My politically pro-gun friends are prone to posting long bricks of text about their rights being threatened, so I thought I’d add my voice to the fray. Gun Thoughts:
Points of view can be very much based in geography. I’m not concerned with rural issues, because I don’t live in a rural environment. I live in a dense population, separated from my neighbors by very thin walls. It’s hard to grow up pro-gun when there’s a zero percent probability that the man you spot carrying a rifle is going to protect you from a bear or kill you lunch. It’s not a simple argument. A gun is not a ‘good’ thing, but I always valued having one behind the counter back in the days when I was working my dad’s pawn shop. You can respect a gun, respect the desire/drive to own one, and still want to see reform in the ways we keep them out of the hands of psychos. I don’t see anything wrong with not wanting to get shot, but I also don’t believe the solution is that all human beings should be strapped at all times. It’s a complicated issue. Please, let’s not pretend it isn’t.
