Made my wife think a little......
My wife finished watching "Going Postal:15 most shocking acts of violence" by herself the other night (she loves her TiVo) and outta the blue she says that I was right.......having a gun in some of those places WOULD have made a diffrence. :comeandgetsome:
Now, my wife's not an 'anti', but she's never been around guns and can fall into the hype until shown another view or given the facts. The show was pretty evenly spaced with time given to both sides of the debate. After watching and seeing what happened in each incident, 'filling in' the blanks with things I've told her, and making conclusions based on info (facts) and her own experiences......she decided having a gun would be a pretty good idea.
Now if I can just get her to the range........
A little updated/related bump
My mother-out-law....( I ment -IN-law) went to the Bank and as she was getting in her car to leave......
St. Marys bank robbed - suspect still at large: Man gets away with undisclosed amount of money. [The Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville] - BusinessWeek
"St. Marys bank robbed - suspect still at large: Man gets away with undisclosed amount of money. [The Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville]"
........The guy pushed right past her as he entered the B of A. She's terminal 'condition white' and when she heard on the news what happened and where she was pretty shaken. My wife and FIL gave her the "pay more attention" speech, etc. etc, but when my wife relayed the story to me, I gave the "anytime, anywhere" response....very compassionatly and in an 'understanding' tone of course.
She's getting it in her head my (and others) carrying thier sidearms 'might not' be such a bad thing.
Regardless, my MIL got pretty luckyme thinks.
