Why I Home Carry: Detroit Area Home Invasions

“You really carry your gun around the house?” The lacrosse Dad looked at me like I had pin lice on my eyebrows. Still, I don’t think he considered me a gunloon. We’d hung out at numerous games and practices. His daughter had play-dated at our house. We’d even been to the range together. But Home Carry is an enormous psychological barrier for a lot of people. It’s one thing to have a gun; it’s another to HAVE a gun. As in have it right there, on your hip, ready to go. Which also freaked him out. “There’s no strap or button to stop anyone from pulling the gun out of your holster?” “If someone’s trying to pull a gun out of my holster, I’m in deep trouble.” He shook his head. “What are the odds you’ll ever need it?” he asked. Funny question that . . .

As gun owners/writers go, I’m pretty non-violent. I’ve never shot another human being. I’ve never bagged a deer. Never shot anything larger than a dove, in fact. Even though I conceal carry, I don’t really believe, in my heart of hearts, I’ll ever have to shoot someone in self-defense. So I’m trying to figure out why I’ve become all but addicted to a game from Glu called Contract Killer . . .

“I’m training my grandchildren to use long-range rifles,” Easy Rider star Peter Fonda told the telegraph.co.uk at the Cannes Film Festival. “For what purpose? Well, I’m not going to say the words ‘Barack Obama’, but … It’s more of a thought process than an actuality, but we are heading for a major conflict between the haves and the have nots. I came here many years ago with a biker movie and we stopped a war. Now, it’s about starting the world . . . I prefer to not to use the words, ‘let’s stop something’. I prefer to say, ‘let’s start something, let’s start the world’.” Hey Pete, you can start by welcoming the Secret Service into your life.

GirlsMakingGunsSounds (GMGS) is post-modern. In other words, the joke is that the girls can’t make guns sounds but the caption pretends that the auditory lameness is specific to one firearm. After about the fifth example, the concept becomes lamer than a one-legged dog. A drunk, one-legged dog. Strip away the idea’s nudge-nudge-wink-wink-itude and I like it! So, is there anyone out there—male OR female—who can do a really good gun imitation? Send your YouTube link (or video file) to guntruth@me.com. The best example will receive . . . our sincerest thanks and internet immortality. No? How about a couple of boxes of PDX1 410 ammo. Done.
