I don't like to follow - I don't even like to lead - not intentionally. I just want to do my own thing. If people want to follow, then that is the risk they take. Granted, there have been times in my life, where I have had to follow...
I also dislike dumb rules that make no sense to me, even though I am a law-abiding citizen. I believe we have too many dumb rules. (laws) I really wish at times, I could just let that radical in me, rise up and do what it feels it has to do - but I live among guys who lean right. I just shut my mouth to have some peace in the home. Peace in the home is nice and quiet. I love quiet.
With all of this crap going on - I just want to pull up stakes, go up into the mountains and live without restrictions. I don't have a problem with guns. (even though my mom committed suicide with a 22.) My mom was hell-bent to end her life. She would of done it anyway.
I own a shotgun. It was my dad's when he was a boy in Tennessee. I grew up knowing about guns, respecting them - I shot them. Dad kept a loaded 44 magnum in his side drawer and we kids, knew not to go in there and point the gun. We just KNEW! I guess kids were smarter back in my day -
Assault rifles, now I do have a problem with. Give me a break, a hunter can't shoot a deer without one, needs to get some eyeglasses and stop drinking. However I feel uncomfortable banning any gun. My dad was a contractor in San Francisco and he would carry large amounts of money on his person. He had a CWP - I see nothing wrong with that.
At times I just wish I could bury my head in the sand - and just let the world pass by....maybe I should just make the leap, and move to some socialist country and just get it over with.
