Guns ‘N Gas ‘N Go

This morning I was reading my news and I found this article on how KMart is pulliing all ammunition from their shelves on CNN. And it actually reminded me of something that I saw when traveling back from PC Beach on Sunday. Kat and I stopped at a gas station (she could tell you where, I could not, I just drive) for a bathroom and drink stop. Well while waiting for a 5 year old to figure out what to do in the bathroom I wandered around the store. I then realized that the three big pallets (same size you see in any warehouse) were stacked about 4 feet high with ammunition. I had to do a double take on this one… Now here comes my soapbox. I don’t think this should be allowed. Period. I do not think that guns serve any good purpose to most of the general public. Now I have friends that own guns, and I also have fired a few guns in my lifetime, and I don’t think that some of my friends really need that sort of firepower. I personally like the idea of more gun control. I also realize that there is no way that guns will be removed from our society any time soon. Yes, I am realistic about it at least. Now I do know that there are legitimate reasons to have guns, such as hunting. But to own a gun, just to own a gun is not a valid excuse in my book. I also know about the amendment for the right to bare arms. But I also know this is an amendment, and should be amended. I will probably get flamed on the freedoms of America, but right now to those people who write anything like that to me- Screw you. If you need a gun in today’s society to feel free then you have some serious issues and should not have a gun in the first place. Hell, this is coming from a person who thinks that we should go back to swords and bows, at least those take some skill to really hurt someone, and they are a hell of a lot harder to conceal. I don’t believe that one should be able to hold a piece of machinery in their hands, and with no discernable skill, have the ability to kill someone. Point and shoot was made for video games, not real life.

  1. But Sean and I have discussed this, found areas of agreeance, etc. I would have to agree with Sean that the concept of ammunition in a convenience store is a skosh appalling.

    Glad to know someone’s going to finally start enforcing the Brady Act, though. =)
