Reality In Seattle: A Journal

as soon as someone is given one it guarantees they will never get depressed, their wife will never cheat, they will never lose their job, develop an alcohol or drug problem, get a terminal illness, be named in a lawsuit or any other thing that might cause a person to react emotionally or spontaneously or feel helpless or desperate like they have nothing to lose.

Apparently, there is a special operation where they open your head and insert a new robot hypothalmus and cerebellum and you get new powers of impulse and emotional control when they give your gun permit. Quite a bargain.

The fact is, CCW permit holder whip out their guns when they get denied a gas pump, when their kids don't get the ball enough during a soccer game, when they get cut off in traffic (they REALLY hate that and do that one ALL the time), when someone accidently bumps into them, when they go out to get drunk...use the google, it happens ALL the time.

Because guess what, a free weekend class and around $75.00 dollars to get your magic CCW (thats all the training it takes in a lot of states) does not undo 500,000 years of human evolution and emotional responses hardwired into our nervous system.

You are just as susceptible to emotions as every other human on the planet.

Except....you have a gun. Well, you actually say you carry 2 with you. Everywhere you go.

Ahh but you can guarantee future human behavior and that you do not have emotions.

Are you serious?

And you want us to treat you as though you are not a direct imminent threat to the rest of us out here?

Because you sat through a class shorter than traffic school?

Because you pay $75.00 every 3-5 years?

I fear the mentality of the people who frequently post pro-gun rhetoric up here a million times more than I do anything Al-Quida or a foreign government could ever do to me.
