    Hoo boy, I think I'm about to get unfriended over guns.

    A Facebook friend of mine just shared this photo:

    This is what I said about it:

    Semi-Automatics? LOL, I think Mr. King is confused. I think maybe he's thinking of *automatic* weapons, given that semi-autos can only fire as fast as one can pull the trigger, and you can't generally see the "burning vapor spurting from the end of the barrel". I also think he's missing Use #3: Preventing further violence against the owner of the gun until law enforcement help can arrive. Plenty of people stop crimes with their weapons without killing anyone.

    The sad part? I know from previous conversations that she's a gun-owner and her husband carries! She's really politically liberal, and that's fine by me. I suspect, though, that I might not be seeing her posts in my newsfeed much anymore.

    Just look on the bright side, that's one less facebook feed you'll have to look at.

    Confession: I may have yelled, "YeeHaw!" at the range the first time I ever fired my PPQ. No comment on the rest.

    I don't mind having friends with vastly different viewpoints. I've gotten really good at scrolling quickly by or just rolling my eyes at lots of things. It gets boring when everyone you talk to or see shares all the same opinions about everything, after all. She and I differ on a lot of issues, but we also have a lot of common ground as well. I have, generally speaking, lost my taste for Facebook debate, but this just made me laugh and scratch my head at the same time.

    Semi-automatics have only two purposes. One is so owners can take them to the shooting range once in awhile, yell yeehaw, and get all horny at the rapid fire and the burning vapor spurting from the end of the barrel. Their other use – their only other use – is to kill people
    I already knew he has no idea how to end books, but I didn't know he has no idea how to end his own statements.

    I don't understand why she would want to unfriend. Isn't the point of posting something like that to invite commentary and stir up controversy?
