Love or Hate Guns

I obviously love guns! You may not, and that is fine with me. Not everyone likes guns, nor should they, but more and more people have them than ever before. The real questions is, are you likely to run into one in a dangerous situation? And if you do come across a gun, can you handle it safely? Keep reading if you want to learn more. 

Guns are perceived by some to be wicked, mean and ugly. Some people wonder how others can say that they love something so destructive and mean spirited? You must be some kind of idiot or some kind of weirdo. "What's wrong with you?" they think. 

Well near as I can tell nothing! I love physics too. And I can do the math. I love motorcycles to and again many normal people do not. 

Tell anyone at a cocktail party that you are a motorcyclist and an avid rider and before you can finish your sentence they will tell you about someone in their family who has been killed of maimed by riding a bike. They will quickly tell you that you should get rid yourself of the dangerous thing before you get hurt or worse! Kind of strange that some react that way, but people are entitled to their own opinions. That’s okay too. 

Guns are about the same, but people are more polite because they don't know if you are a caring person and may think twice before telling you that you’re a fool for having one! Funny thing is that when things go bad and a gun owner stops a fight without even firing a bullet, they never say much about that. You won’t see that on the evening news. It would go against the grain of the mainstream media to show that it was a good thing and the evil tool of destruction they want you to believe that it is saved the day and maybe some innocent lives. 

There are many things we human do not know. The lack of knowledge has never stopped us from forming and rigid opinion none the less, however wrong it may be. The sad thing is that even after enlightenment occurs we still cling to the bad science or flat our wrong facts. We value our opinions and resist change even when there is clear evidence to the contrary. 

I loved racing the motorcycle because the BS stopped when the green flag dropped. The clock ticks off the same for every competitor until the checked flag flies. The clock never lies! 

Consider this. If you hate guns and worse still, you are afraid of them and therefore avoid them at all costs. Then truly you do not know how they work or how to use one. 

One of the things I liked about riding a motorcycle is that not everyone knew how to ride. It was a learned skill set. They only have two wheels and are prone to fall over. Ducati (the famous champion winning manufacturer from Italy) once made their bikes with automatic retracting kick stands. It wasn't a very well thought out feature and they soon stopped making them that way after dealers complained that customers would admiringly sit on a bike and get off only to have it crash to the ground with the automatic retracing kick stand in the up, position. Yeah it was cool but they had to make a lot of extra left hand turn signals and mirrors for those bikes. A good dealer had plenty on hand! The learning curve was severe. Guns are the same. 

Imagine the sadness of losing a child in a school shooting. Heart breakingly sad for the parents and family. Only God knows what was going through the mind of that sick killer. I can't imagine and hopefully neither can you. Can you imagine being there and turning the corner in the hall and seeing with your own eyes the resource officer lying in a pool of blood with his service pistol on the floor just a few feet in front of you. Just down the hall is the evil shooter. Would you know how to pick up that gun and bring it to bear on the shooter? Would you want to 
stop the threat? I know I would at all costs no matter what happened next. You could be the difference between further carnage and stopping the evil event in its tracks but you must have some skill at arms. Yes you would need to know how the police officer's gun worked in order to press it into service against the threat. If you hate guns and won't touch one you will never be able to help stop the threat like that even if you wanted to. So what do you do? Seek out Training! 

First, be open minded about guns. They are simply tools. Tools that you can learn how to use safely. The NRA offers many Gun Safety classes to teach anyone how to handle a gun safely. If you are like me and you would want to stop the threat described above you should learn how to sweep the safety off and shoot the gun at the attacker. Otherwise it is up to you to use the Verbal Art of Self Defense to stop the threat with your powerful argument. If you’re good you can talk him down, if you're good, oh and you can get your mouth to work! 

Even if you hate guns you can still learn the safe way to handle them and maybe save your life and the life of a loved one nearby. Think about it. Does the safety go up or down? 
  • If I pull the trigger will it fire? 
  • How do I load it? 
  • Will it hurt if I do fire the gun? 
You can get all the answers from one Basic Safety Course offered by 
the NRA near your home. No you do not need to own or buy a gun to take the course. Most good trainers have plenty of equipment that you can use or rent to learn with at a very reasonable cost. 

Want to learn more? Go to EagleEyeArns.com or the NRA web site. You can also call me at 941-376-7740 to open a dialog about this important topic. 

Remember Col. Jeff Cooper said it best when he said; “Caring a gun doesn’t make you safe or strong any more than caring a guitar makes you as musician. “ 

Be strong and be safe.

I think that guns are useful, IF AND ONLY IF used properly. Because no man would make an object if it is not useful for him, right? But I personally believe that a gun's only purpose, whether you think it is in the right or wrong, is to kill. You use guns to kill animals so that you can eat. And also you use it to serve as a self defense when someone tries to do you harm. So I suppose gun would not exist if only people are just, kind and have the love for all the living and non living in the world.
