No one could have predicted something like this: Dereck Simonsmeier, a 24-year-old Responsible Gun Owner and advocate of going around armed all the time, because the Constitution lets you, gained some bigtime attention a week back when he wrote an impassioned guest column for the
He would probably make a great cop.
Only while pickled.
He mentions being an Iraq war veteran, so it sounds like a teensy weensy case of PTSD. Thank heavens our wounded warriors aren&#039;t forced to give up their guns just because they might be irrational.
He&#039;s very fond of his constitutional right to have a gun at his side 24/7. I have a constitutional right to vote, but I don&#039;t feel the need to do it 24/7. Maybe once every couple years.
When you have to proclaim &quot;I am a role model&quot; (because nobody else is saying it, amirite?), it pretty much guarantees that you&#039;re not.
Oh, and having a sibling? Becoming an uncle? Not exactly resume-worthy achievements.
Annnnd finally, you know those cute girls whispering among themselves as they check you out? The topic is, &quot;Who&#039;s the asshole with the gun?&quot; (&quot;How tiny is the dick he&#039;s compensating for?&quot; probably doesn&#039;t get said out loud, unless they&#039;re Wonkettettes.)
He stood outside in the subzero weather,<b> texting </b>his friends ... about how it was too cold to pull out his steel penis? I didn&#039;t know it required more dexterity than texting.
Well, that is a terrible spot to be in. If a carload of kids playing loud music had pulled in, he&#039;d have been unable to <strike>properly</strike> responsibly deal with the situation!
I bet he thinks taxes are theft.
Last night we watched an average American Experience documentary on Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. That series has really gone downhill since David McCullough left.
Anyway, one takeaway is that the Old West had many problems. A lack of people running around with guns certainly wasn&#039;t one of them.
If you can&#039;t use your Second Amendment rights to suppress other people&#039;s rights of assembly and free speech, then why bother even <i>having</i> a Second Amendment?!
My wife defies my directions about how to load a dishwasher properly.
I&#039;ve resorted to 21st Amendment solutions.
If you want me to look at you suspiciously with the side eye and gradually edge my way out of the room you are in, yeah, sure it&#039;ll work. This also defeats the purpose of the word concealed doesn&#039;t it?
Of course everyone can tell the difference between all toy guns and real ones. Especially if you are highly trained in the use of firearms. <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/..." target="_blank">" rel="nofollow noopener" title="http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/calif-de...">http://www.nydailynews.com/... oh wait.. maybe not.
I grew up and went to college in Wisconsin (so, admittedly, mostly Milwaukee and Madison, not Wausau), and I never saw anyone open-carrying, except when the National Guard shut the campus down.
Maybe it just wasn&#039;t hip back then?
This! A thousand upfists for TRUTH!!!
