A mother's journey

A mother's journey

This is a discussion on A mother's journey within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; One mother's opinion. I found this in, of all places, CNN's website. Makes for interesting reading, especially the last couple of paragraphs. http://http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/02...tml?hpt=hp_bn1...

    Link is broken :(
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    How long before the mother's journey ends... Taking the local Sheriff to her gun safe, and turning them over...

    God, I pray, not in my lifetime...

    Aside from the part about being married to a man in the military, I could have written this - I felt the same way. No guns in my house...until I was scared enough by someone on the other side of my door.

    From the article: "I am not physically capable of stopping a 200-pound man from raping me or my daughters. I am not physically capable of stopping a 200-pound man from entering my home and doing what he may. However, my gun is very capable of stopping such a criminal if such an act were to occur" Exactly sums up why I carry. I am not physically strong enough to stop someone intent on doing harm to me or my children.

    I'm glad the woman changed her attitude about firearms, especially about being personally involved in the protection of herself and her kids. At least her change of heart was only the result of a scary experience. Many people wait until a situation changes their lives forever (serious personal injury from an attack, or serious injury or death of a loved one), and then they have to live with the guilt.

    She gets it.

    It is that simple. And she's even being a bit of an advocate.

    Now, as some have said, if she can retain them and her right to them.

    NRA needs to make this into a commercial/infomercial.
