The issue of transgender access to restrooms has been on my mind ever since politicians and my leftist friends decided to make a big deal about the signs on the front of bathroom doors. Why are people so concerned over this? Would it really hurt us as gun owners to be logically consistent on this issue . . .
We pull out the phrase “a majority of mass shootings are in gun free zones” or “criminals don’t obey signs.” Now, all of a sudden, some people (including gun owners) think that a picture of a woman in a skirt on a bathroom door in public protects that woman.
This is just a little odd for me to try to wrap my head around. It’s also another great reason for women (and men) to be armed. A sign is never responsible for your protection. You are. So why the big stink (so to speak) about these signs needing up when we want gun free zone signs down?
I’ve seen some weird things in public restrooms, yet I am not scared. I carry all the time. Everywhere I go. I doubt this will be any sort of an issue once I’m in Wyoming. I avoid public bathrooms like the plague anyway because most are never up to my standards of cleanliness. I’d honestly rather do my business outside than in a public restroom because it’s cleaner.
Bottom line: the People of the Gun should be consistent in their values. Since Target no longer has segregated bathrooms, if it isn’t acceptable to you, don’t go to Target. Target also has a no guns policy. That probably hasn’t stopped legal gun owners from carrying in the store. If it has, they simply stopped shopping at Target, essentially voting with their wallets. I fail to see how a law against transgender access to bathrooms will protect patrons (children!) from perverts.
Stay safe, and stay armed. Protect yourselves and loved ones and let others live and let live. That’s the true essence of freedom. And isn’t that what we all desire and one of the binding reasons we carry in the first place?
