What I Think of Your Gun Memes.

Both sides of the gun debate have very valid points, but you wouldn't know it with all the flaming stupid being hurled across social networking congregations like retarded Molotov cocktails.

We shouldn't be having an argument about whether guns are "evil" (they're not) or whether the 2nd Amendment gives you the right to be armed to the teeth anyhow you please (it never did). We should be having a discussion about how we are going to balance people's right to self defense and sport/hunting traditions with people's safety from the effects of our firearm culture. 

Both sides are going to have to give. Not because one is 100% right and one is 100% wrong, but because, like most things in a society, it is a balance. If we let go of the fear this increasing spate of domestic terrorism is causing everyone, we might be able to think clearly. 

Are we a bunch of torch waving villagers? Or are we Americans? Step it up.

* DISCLAIMER: My use of the word retarded is not to be associated with Downs Syndrome or other mental impairment. It means a deliberate slow cognitive function from otherwise able-minded individuals.

Hey girlie, how's your fiction going? You and your Viking might enjoy a redneck lifestyle. It's more peaceful than you might think. Try some Faulkner or Steinbeck to get you in the mood. Hope all is well. Take care.

I never said rednecks weren't peaceful.
