Every Kid Should Have a Ruger 10/22

I am not a gun fanatic!

OK, maybe just a little.

No matter what, I feel as though every law-abiding citizen should have the right to bear arms and in fact should be encouraged to do so for the betterment of society as a whole.

Why not teach kids how to shoot a gun in gym class?

My high school used to have a gun range in the basement of its old campus but now that it has become a bastion of ultra-liberalism, I’m sad to say that the new campus has a pottery studio instead.

Perhaps living in Texas for a few years helped to shape my ideals but over time I have come to feel as though gun ownership, the right to carry and the Castle Doctrine that allows for unfettered self protection within one’s own home, are all good for society.

Why?

Because some ignorant would be criminal might just think twice before they use their illegal gun to perpetrate a crime against the possibility of encountering a well armed, well trained, law abiding citizen.

Here in New Jersey, if you dare to hurt a criminal as they invade your home, you might just face a lawsuit and if the amount of force you use to repell the invader exceeds the amount of force they use to assalt you, you may even go to jail.

How absolutely ridiculous!

For this reason, I am anxiously awaiting the Supreme Court to weigh in on the constitutional meaning of those few troublesome words…

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”

The case, District of Columbia v. Heller, 07-290, should give us the clarification that we have been waiting for

If we win, people like Mayor Bloomberg will simply have to accept that the Constitution is on the side of the people and NOT on the side of the criminals who have always and will always have free access to all of the guns they want.

 Stay tuned!
