little girls are so much better served when dressed up as tiny adults in tight sexy clothing and painted like little whores and paraded around for the pleasure of their (sic) mommies at beauty pageants. absolutely, we must teach them whats important–important though your eyes of course– and not to become personally responsible citizens. and for those wondering what my point is—it is to you especially i speak.
so i did what i seldom do--talk back to the dummies....sue me.

Congrats to y'all's "new addition," Ianator.
My Anna-bird is now 5 and 1/2, and I've always tried to teach her that she should live life according to her own choices.
As a father, I feel obligated to give her the choice to be able to use firearms in her self-defense: not because she's a girl, but because as a female, there will be those instances where her mass and force just cannot overcome that of her oppositions'. Men and women are built differently, there's no way around that biologic fact. As an equalizer, there's perhaps nothing more effective than firearms, properly employed.
But I'd feel the same way if I had a boy, too. And "the equalizer" isn't just for women: it's for any force disparity.
As I've posted in other threads and other communities, I started my daughter off on gun-safety very early on in her life. I allowed her own interest to drive her questioning, and gave her age-appropriate rules and lessons.
Just two weeks ago, out of the blue, she asked if she could try to shoot one of my airsoft replicas: a Walther PPK/S replica that she'd taken a very specific liking to.
I'm hoping for a new range-buddy, a few more years down the line.
True, This might be in the wrong place. I was on my new phone on Tapatalk and it was freaking out a little and I couldn't get the rest to load. I thought This was close to correct. Move if necessary. :)

Author? That was just a 9 sentence Rant with a bunch of photos.

I wonder. Maybe the author was really a gun guy like us, and just wanted to wake everybody up? If so, he sure did. Yeah, I know. Probably not....

"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
My daughter had no interest in guns, and never ever saw any need nor desire to shoot. I tried, but her mother...... However, I did teach her some martial arts. She was especially great at high kicks to the head. My granddaughter however, shoots great and has also learned some martial arts on top of that (which the boys hate).
When she & her coworkers left work late at night (1-2 a.m.) and walked to their cars, they always went as a group to their cars. That night, she got out later than the others and was walking it alone. Typically she would call me, and talk ... but not that night. She didn't call, she didn't call, and I got up and was getting dressed.... because she was not answering my calls.
I was just about out the door, when I received a call from her. She only said " I'll let the Police officer explain everything to you" ... and then this Police Officer is on there... "Sir, .... "... and there is a lot of yelling in the background.
This LEO begins by asking me.... "Sir, did you teach your daughter some martial arts or how to defend herself ? "
Me : "yes, I did.... WHY ? "
He begins telling me, that a man with a long rap sheet for rape came up behind my daughter and grabbed her as she got to her car. He is about 6'1" tall vs her 5'2" thin frame. (Screaming in background continuing). He said, well..... your daughter did a real number on this guy and beat him up pretty well, when we arrived... he was on the ground and she was standing over him....... and he was covered with blood ... don't worry , it's all HIS blood".
He begins "laughing" and saying , the biggest problem was getting him off the ground... he kept refusing to get up until we made her keep further away from him, because he was afraid she would attack him again. Laughing hard, he says, that's him in the background you've been hearing.... he keeps shouting "keep her away from me". We're going to take him to the hospital, it seems he has several missing teeth, a possible broken nose, and other injuries.... as he said when he was down she kept kicking him hard into the chest as well ". So.... "your daughter is safe and did a wonderful job of protecting herself".
Jump ahead, she has now also worked in the medical unit of a jail ... dealing with a couple of serial murderers as well ..... and she wants to start carrying and learn to shoot. She now understands, dealing with several inmates, why a gun is a needed tool.

I hope one day all of our little kids can go to the range together...

This is truly amazing. While this forum focuses on firearms (mostly) it is great that one of the things we as parents teach our kids is self reliance, whether that be with a firearm or not. You have obviously done a great job raising your daughter. As a teacher I see so often the damage parents do their kids and it is always nice to see the counterpoint. Kepp up the good work.
