Desiring safety is one of the essential needs, that we all share.
Everything else falls behind.
With a threat of terrorism, we are loading the guns and enrolling
in the gun safety workshops. We want to be educated and well prepared for a possibility of another Planned Parenthood or San Bernardino shooting.
In this atmosphere of heightened anxieties and turmoil, President Obama
wants to bring more gun control. What is going on, one might ask?

NOW YOU GOT A GUN!
There are many people that got killed by their own weapon. There are also,
many people that their own or somebody else life was saved with intelligent, timely use of the firearm.
There are a lot of stories to support both.
I am sure that you and nobody else in your household are one of those hot tempers...or easily unhinged individuals, emotionally stressed out or suicidal.
I am sure that specifically YOU in a situation like that would call the hotline, look up for a friend/doctor to talk things over and never thought about a gun.
Of course, you do not intent to harm somebody...you strictly got a gun because you want safety...for yourself..for your own family
...for protection and not to use unlawfully...that is it! Right?!
Owning the gun is your right and that's it. Right?
So, you got a gun...am I right?!
It doesn't matter if our president cries or not.
These are adult tears...
not a kid's or screaming cute little kittens that move us to give a comfort.
Besides the president has a body guards ready to protect him and shoot
to kill anybody threatening his safety.
Right?...and you got only yourself..and your own gun. Right?!
Americans want guns and prevailed...I just hope that you're sensible,
responsible adult ...well trained in using weapon and safety.
...Of course, I believe that dog is better. The gun has no ears, no voice, no eyes and no love for you...like the dog might have for you if you take care of him.
The gun can not see behind your back or, when you distracted or in the dark approaching intruder and warn you like dog can...and the gun, of course, is not going to give you the sloppy kisses when you're coming home...not going to cry for you or mourn you, if you get hurt or killed.
Killed? Yea! Killed...like done...gone...forever. Killed. You got to think about that when your gun might end up in the wrong hands. Make a will, just so your loved one, at least, get some comfort.
Still you wanted a gun and now you got it.
Obviously, as one nation and you part of it, we're connected...
and we want you to feel secure...and stay alive.
The same we want for everybody else... We want all law abiding people to feel safe in their own homes, on the streets, at work and every place else. The real danger is there..especially now with the very real threat of terrorists and the call for jihads against Americans.
Now, of course, we only have a hope that you keep your gun safe and away from all the little sticky fingers of the children who just love to touch and play with everything forbidden. Their curiosity and a need for exploration is endless and have uncanny ability to look for a danger, exploration, adventure ..that's a way the little kids mind is wired..and of course, play 'daddy', 'mammy' and imitate adults. Children want to do what their parents are doing. The children toys
reflect that. However, a problem might arise when they want to play with the 'real' thing...and that thing is a GUN!
So, now you got a gun...
and more stressed out police...
the officer that might be also tired...and never was a Bill Hickock...more like Calamity Jane. And we know about Jane..she could shoot, of course, but I think that she more enjoyed sleeping freely with casual soldier...and there were even times in her life when she prostituted herself for living.
Gun, often brings the false sense of safety... sometimes working situation through wits and own ingenuity can be better...but you made your choice.
You got a gun, maybe more than one because you feel correctly that double lock or pepper spray can not give you the same level of safety. You're right.
THERE IS NEVER WITH OR WITHOUT THE GUN ABSOLUTE SAFETY...
I got a dog.. and mutual love agreement with my dog to look after each other.
Actually, I believe that my dog reads my thought on many occasions...but in reality, it is too small to protect, just good to warn.
Dealing with the dog and not a gun is my choice. Also, it is my choice - although I don't think I am a mice - to get killed rather than to kill...it's just me...I don't think I could sleep/live or be in any way O.K. if I killed somebody.
Accidents, at times, are unpreventable and the person that I shoot in alteration could be the silly, neighborhood kid. I would not want this to happen.
My decision is my own.
Yours is yours and I respects your rights...
right to have, your right to choose
...I respect your desire for safety.
Please respect mine.
Please, respect my right to live.
Please do not kill me...accidentally.
Now, you got a gun...please, DON'T SHOOT.
