Sometimes I want to take gun control advocates by their proverbial lapels and shake them (metaphorically speaking). “It’s a gun people! It’s only a gun!” An invention that’s over a thousand years old. A method of personal defense (and yes, offense) that was fully democratized by Samuel Colt in the 1840’s. You’d think that we’d all be comfortable with guns by now. But no; the struggle to protect our firearms-enabled right to self-defense continues. Those of us who fight for gun rights have a lot to be thankful for. The Supreme Court’s Heller and McDonald decisions. The liberalization of concealed carry laws. The rising standards of firearms manufacture. As we move forward (to coin a phrase) we should never take our God-given gun rights for granted. They help us protect our family, friends, liberty and, most important of all, our lives. Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at The Truth About Guns to all of you.

    • Unlike the Pilgrims, modern American Courts no longer do ignorant, dumb, and unjust things like order people burned at the stake as witches based on the claims of hysterical accusers from a more favored special class. Oh wait a minute…

        • No it would not make me happy. The names and labels may have changed since the days of the Pilgrims yet human lust, greed, and anger have not. Therefore the game of illusion continues and much of humanity continues to submit to its lower darker nature.

      • I don’t believe humans have lower or higher natures, except when they sublimate simpler goals (thirst, hunger) to higher purposes (imperialism, sadomasochism, art). Calling a value “light” or “dark” perpetuates the illusion of morality.

        • Jeebus guys. Is a simple happy thanksgiving or some witty take on the same that hard? I can’t wait to see the comments for the xmas season.

        • Am I reading your last comment correctly that you believe in moral relativism?

          “Moral relativism is the view that ethical standards, morality, and positions of right or wrong are culturally based and therefore subject to a person’s individual choice. We can all decide what is right for ourselves. You decide what’s right for you, and I’ll decide what’s right for me. Moral relativism says, “It’s true for me, if I believe it.”

          “Moral relativism has steadily been accepted as the primary moral philosophy of modern society, a culture that was previously governed by a “Judeo-Christian” view of morality. While these “Judeo-Christian” standards continue to be the foundation for civil law, most people hold to the concept that right or wrong are not absolutes, but can be determined by each individual. Morals and ethics can be altered from one situation, person, or circumstance to the next. Essentially, moral relativism says that anything goes, because life is ultimately without meaning.”

        • jwm,

          Why do you choose to let comments, in a discussion that does not address or concern you, upset you so much?

      • I don’t believe in morals, period. There’s nothing relative about it! Positive and negative…not good and evil. Nietzsche and PUAs speak more truth than most, however.
