I don’t know much about Blue Ruin (due in selected theaters April 25) but I’ve been in the big guy’s shoes. Someone I knew (a female of course) was in trouble. She needed a firearm for self-protection in a state where the fastest you could legally purchase a gun was 10 days. Carry permit? Months. If then. I told her no. If it’s that serious, leave town. That was when I was behind enemy lines, living in a Northeastern state. Here in Texas, you can lend a bro a gun without legal blowback. Unless there is. So anyway, let’s say someone you knew (and loved) asked to borrow a gat for self-defense. Would you lend it?
