Let me clear the air on where I stand on gun control.  It's an easy issue for me and one that I am not afraid to take a stand on. With that being said, I also agree with those of you who are completely anti-gun, let me explain.

I wrote this story yesterday and if you haven't read it maybe you should.  It's going on right now but many in today's world think and vote with their hearts and that can be dangerous.  I have voted in every Presidential election since 1984 and I have never agreed 100% with my choice and if you say you have, you're lying.

To the point:  I have every right to protect my home and family at all costs just like you have the choice/right to depend on 911 and hopefully a decent response time to deal with the guy raping or killing your wife or daughter. That's your right and I won't stand in the way of it  I was raised with this one thing drilled into my head and I have done the same with my kids and that is 'It's better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it.'

So where I agree with those of you who are anti-gun saying 'why do you need more than a 15 round magazine' I answer with you really don't but the 2nd Amendment gives me the right to do so, so, why do you care?  If I want to have 100 30-round magazines, that is my right to do so and hopefully I will never need them.

Better to have it and not need it...

Every school should have a few armed teachers.  Kids who are alive are much better than those who aren't. Carry a gun in your bra for 12 years and never need it or wish you had that one time you did need it.

Better to have it and not need it...

My aging Mother.  What does it hurt to have a loaded pistol in her nightstand (which she does) just in case. Chances are it will sit in there another 20 years, but God forbid the guy that breaks in should that ever happen.

Better to have it and not need it...

I don't stand in your way of hating guns because "they are so dangerous" just like I won't stand in your way of the dangerous criminal breaking into your house to raid the fridge, watch some TV...or worse.  All I ask is for the same respect that you don't stand in the way of my rights to protect my family and home the way I want to.  I am fully within the law and my rights under the Constitution to do so.

Please stop thinking with your hearts because sometimes the right decision doesn't always "feel" right.  Just like the Westboro Baptist Church has the right do do what they do under our Constitution, I too have the right to protect what I have at all cost!

Guns are NOT the problem, let's please remember that.
