Much like anything in life, we humans are prone to making mistakes. It’s a common part of life that enables us to grow, learn and improve ourselves. While it may be true that mistakes are bound to happen at some point and that they should be viewed as learning curves rather than treated as a punishable act (of course, that depends on the mistake at hand), there is only so much room for error when it comes to gun ownership.The reality of guns are that they are basically death in mechanical form and when misused, can lead to serious ramifications such as lawsuits, new bedding, linen or sheets and possibly even death.
So making a mistake once and learning from it i.e. never doing it again, is a sign that you might be a responsible gun owner, a decent citizen, a God-fearing man or woman and relatively smart. However, repeating the same mistakes are signs that you are not fit to carry a firearm and in the South, that basically means you’re a non-entity, an invalid or a cretin. Harsh as that may sound, these are the proud traditions of our slightly inbred people and they are to be upheld at all costs because they are sacred to us. It is written in Mark Chapter 2:5 that ‘He who commands a weapon, commands his destiny – and deserves better parking on weekends.’ It is not my bidding but that of our cosmic Landlord and Saviour Jesus. H. Christ and his ways are indeed greater than us. Gunivore is the only place you need to go to learn anything about guns with their amazing articles and reviews.
That being said, here are a few of the more common issues to look out for when it comes to owning, using, firing and naming a gun. It’s important to treat your weapon like your direct descendant, or a college league footballing son – with love, kindness, respect and smack on the head every now and then. It’s your duty as an American and if you’re part of the NRA and don’t recognize this, then don’t even make eye-contact with me at our next seminar, unless you brought parfet.
It’s a fact that every holiday season, Americans bought more guns than the previous holiday season. The FBI says they processed a record number of background checks on Black Friday (about 2 per second!), so it’s safe to say that some of you got a gun for Christmas. It’s also likely that some of you are brand new gun owners. Welcome to the club!
But before you run outside and start shooting your new gun like Ralphie on Christmas morning, there’s a few things you should know. First of all, I highly recommend you get some professional training. The NRA has nearly 100,000 instructors around the country. Use this form to choose a course and find a local instructor.
This is for your safety, the safety of others, and the reputation of gun owners in general. The last thing we need is another irresponsible gun owner accidentally shooting someone. News stories like that just give more ammo to the people who would like to ban guns altogether.
