Moms Demand Action is a little hot under the collar about Starbucks honoring state and local laws regarding the carry of firearms in their stores. Essentially the java joint matches their store policies with law. So they allow firearms in the coffeeshop if local law allows it. And to show appreciation, gun aficionados are staging a buy-in on August 9th. (I thought it was today and passed by one at the mall. We rolled in and bought three drinks to show support. None of the baristas had any idea about the buy-in, probably because I had the wrong day. But they were friendly to the idea. 2nd Amendment, one of them asked. Neat.)
Guns are the great equalizer. And in the national debate occurring in this country right now over their legal use, it bears repeating that guns protect women and children too. An astute blogger has written a Personal Letter to Congress – Don’t Take Away my 2nd Amendment Right or the Right to Protect my Children! Please do read it and send it out to your friends.
Lil Chantilly, who blogs over at Heels and Handguns, is a little steamed, both under the collar and in her blogpost. What’s got her peeved? Bill Cosby went and gone done said this:
“When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody.”
And Lil is not having any of it. She’s right, of course. Under the 2nd Amendment, Americans are justly afforded the right to bear arms. She goes on to lambast him in this manner:
What? Did he really need to take his comments to that level? This actually offended me, and shocked me. It is such a blanket statement to make, very surprising coming from one of the biggest advocates of personal responsibility. So tell me, readers of this blog, and proponents of CCW: When you carry a gun, do you mean to kill or harm another person?
If you are so inclined, go over and howdy Lil. She’s got pics of herself shooting sniper rifles. Sniper. RIfles. Do not mess. With a country lady. And her sniper rifles. All several of them. That is a recipe for disaster:
