Get A Gun; Practice Gun Safety (January 25, 2016)

. . .

K          “Get a gun.”

J          “Or two.”

. . .

K          “When there is no rule of law, you are compelled to get a gun.  And there is so little rule of law in America.”

J          “You are on your own.  Me too.”

. . .

K          “Guns are high-tech hole punches that punch holes in paper and clay, and in four-legged animals, and in two-legged animals.  Target shooting, and hunting, and personal protection.  I now encourage everyone to acquire and learn how to use a gun responsibly for personal protection.”

J          “An owner must be willing to use it and know how to use it.  I regard a gun as our last stand and our last statement.  A pistol to protect your person and a shotgun to protect your property and family.  Go with a revolver.  Less chance of failure and you don’t litter the landscape with brass or leave your fingerprints.”    

K          “Semi-autos have their place.  By your side.”

J          “A 12 gauge pump is indisputably the way to go for the castle and family.  Three inch shells, double-aught buck attract attention.”

. . .

J          “Once that lead is unleashed, getting it back in the barrel is problematic.”

K          “Everyone should be forced to stare at a few gunshot wounds as part of the safety training.  It ain’t television.”

. . .

J          “I lived without background checks at gun shows and estate sales for decades.  The state background checks instituted recently are a nuisance, yet they are necessary and tolerable.”

. . .
