Socialism is Not the Answer

I think it’s time to to give my two cents worth on this subject.
When I was growing up, my Grandfather had all of his guns on a gun rack mounted on a wall leading upstairs. Nobody ever touched them. They were my Grandfathers and that was it. My Father fought in WWII and retired after 23 years of service. My Mother knew how to use a gun, maybe not as well as Annie Oakley but she could hit what she aimed at.
My Father bought me my first gun when I was about 13 and he never worried about me with it because he knew I had been trained. So as you can see, I was brought around guns without fear but with respect. Which leads me to the point of this story.
In 1976, while working at a conveient store in Mobile, Alabama my Mother was shot and killed in a late night robbery. The robber walked into the store just a few minutes before closing, shot my Mother three times and then tried to open the cash register but couldn’t. So he took the cash register and left the store and my Mother dead on the floor.
For those who remember 1976, you will remember that there were no hidden video cameras in the stores, so there were no pictures. There were no finger prints because he took the cash register. And to this day, I don’t know if they ever caught the person that did this, but I do know this. I don’t blame the gun. Just like I wouldn’t blame the knife if he had used one, or a baseball bat or even a car. They are just things and can do nothing without a person using them.
Now, if my Mother had a gun when this scumbag had walked into the store, she might be alive today and telling the story about how big his eyes were when he looked down the barrel of her gun. And for the record, I still have the gun my Father gave me and will continue to no matter what the Dictator Obama says or does.
