This is EXACTLY why I carry a gun

December 3rd, 2012

But my instinct was that if someone is shooting at you, it is generally better to shoot back than to cower and pray.

    Countless Leftists want to paint gun owners who carry concealed as yahoos longing to get into a cowboy style gunfight. I certainly wouldn’t label you that way, Elliot. Matter of fact, I know dozens of people including myself who carry…and none of them fit that description. I have grade school aged children. The last thing I want is anything like that to happen while I’m out running errands or mall shopping with them.

    Many of us are like this guy:

    A soft-spoken Nick Meli was thoughtful and responsible in his response to the Clackamas mall shooting. The mainstream media has completely ignored his existence. So long as stories like his are widely denied, we can’t have an honest debate about how to deal with shooting violence.

    Thank you for not labeling me a cowboy. Though, I did spend much of my childhood pretending to be one.

    One thing we do know and have undeniable proof of…

    Tom Barrett and Jim Doyle were 100% wrong in their breathless claims that CCW would turn the streets of Wisconsin into the Wild West.

    Or lying through their teeth…

    I’m waiting for someone to explain why the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of kindergarteners.
