At this point, we are all aware of the couple who defended their home from a mob by standing out front with an AR15 and a PPK. We have all seen the memes being generated as a result. What I can’t believe is that gun owners who would actually hope to expand the gun culture would join in.
This is the same mentality that causes a gun to hand his wife or girlfriend a 500 S&W revolver or a shotgun and then tape her getting knocked on her ass while he yucks it up at her stupidity. Sure, he got a cheap laugh, but he just turned a woman who was interested in shooting into a woman who wants nothing to do with guns.
Is that really the smart play? In this case, the gun owning couple obviously lives in a neighborhood that can jointly afford to hire armed security. So do you want them defending their own property and being pro gun, or do you want them hiring armed security while voting to disarm the rest of us?
Not so funny now, is it?
