Because of my disability, I am temporarily living with my parents, so we are always getting into different debates and conversations. Today we got to talking about guns. Now, both my parents vote Republican, but on some subjects they are far to the left. The gun issue is one of them. They both want all guns banned, even though my dad has a Marlin .22 rifle and a 12gau. pump (I forget who makes it), but they have sat up in the attic for the last 20 years. So, we went back and forth on that a little, and I got the same old "we need to ban guns to keep them out of the hands of criminals". I said that criminals don't let laws or bans stop them from getting guns, and they sounded a little like Obozo without his teleprompter "uh....er....but maybe.....we can....uh...stop one or two from.....uh....getting them". I mean I love my parents, but come on! They kind of backpedaled by saying "oh....but we know that YOU are responsible with your guns so we don't have a problem with YOUR guns". My brother is also a gun owner and they said the same about him. Basically they want ALL guns banned, but they don't want to SAY they don't want my brother and I to have our guns (even though I know they don't like our guns either). They also don't know that I keep at least one of my guns loaded at all times. If I told them, they would have kittens! I think they would be singing a different tune if someone tried to get in and hurt us, and I successfully used my gun to stop the attack! I mean, my parent mean well, they HATE crime and they hate that fact that guns are used in crime, but they are like most antis-they think the GUN is more of the problem, then the CRIMINAL! Again, I love my parents a lot, but I will be so glad when I can save up my meager disability pay to get my own place. I'm far to the right, they are more to the left, and in a lot of subjects WE DON'T MIX! Sorry about the rant.
