It’s the Gun Tweet That Won’t Die. It’s also The Gun Tweet That Indicates Mental Instability. At the risk of being labelled a hopeless romantic—I mean pedant, this infinitely re-Tweeted sentiment is scary stupid. First, “handing someone a gun” is a bad idea. Gurlposts, you don’t want to be handing just anyone a gun, ever. Even if you restrict the “here’s a heater” group to people you love, ask yourself this before you make the transfer: does Mayor Bloomberg know about this? Also, have you ever broken up hard? Separated from a significant other so unstable he or she made makes francium look like neon-20? Divorced the bitch from hell? Well, exactly . . .
“Having them point [the gun] at your heart” is WAY too vague for comfort. Whose idea was this Eva Braun moment in the first place? If it was yours Gurlposts, just step away from Degrassi. If it was his, you need to Krav Maga your beloved’s ass, run like hell, dial 911 and get yourself a carry permit and a revolver to go with your restraining order.
“Trusting them never to pull the trigger” indicates two separate levels of nuts.
One: trusting someone not to pull the trigger of a gun pointed at your center mass is like putting a suicide pill on your tongue and not swallowing it [see: Eva above]. Why do that? Instead, run that copy of Flatliners over a big ass magnet and Google “Drama Queen recovery program” ASAP.
Two: never pull the trigger? That indicates an ongoing, extremely lopsided situation. Remember: it’s mutually assured destruction has kept the world safe for democracy/theocracy/Subway franchisees. If one side has all the power, it’s only a matter of time before they use it. As the Brits say, there will be tears at bedtime. As in The Big Sleep.
True story. And here’s another tip for Gurlposts and her 64,395 followers. You know that Tweet “If people hate you, don’t be worried. Because haters are people who hate the ones they can’t be”? Be worried. Be very worried. They’re the ones with the gun pointed at your heart. Just sayin’ . . .
