Semper Fi, Maude! May you rest in peace.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Funny, I thought it was WW1.

She was also an outspoken activist in support of gun control. Good riddance.
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
Made Staff Sergeant in less than 30 months, even with a disciplinary action in her file for having a "venereal disease." Strange times.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Big difference in commiting acts of violence against people and exercising your right of voicing your opinions. As far as I an concerned, she was not only born with those rights, but served and earned them. I may not agree with her personal views, but I respect her right to express them. That what America is about.
This isn't about her right, this is about the fact that one less anti-gun activist is gone..... who cares as far as I am concerned, just because you served does not mean you are deserving of respect, else you folks should be idolizing Bradley manning for standing up for what HE believed in. Being a gun control activist and lobbying for gun control, puts many law abiding citizens in danger and she has none of my respect for it.
I don't celebrate the death of anyone, not even thoughs fallen by my hand. Life is more than idealistic views. We can't have it both ways. I don't like people who burn the flag either, but I celebrate their right to do it.
Many people have not been exposed to both sides of an issue, as Im sure as is the case of even some of our family members, but I would not think good riddance on them in death due to their beliefs.
I have to agree with azchevy on this one. It's strange how some people acted decently in their younger days, just to turn around and become rabid leftists after crossing Hollywood's city limits. Then there are those who stand by their country no matter what is chic at the moment.

You can tell she is proud of being a Marine
