So some idiot sparked a debate on twitter. The best part is, it is obvious I backed him into a corner with no way out. He has been continuing to dance around the point once I illustrated the problem with his argument.
He absolutely refused to answer the following question and would dance around it.
Answer my question. Would you disarm the law abiding in attempt to quell crime. Yes or no?
He would give a response dancing around the question to which I would reply something along the lines of well why do police carry guns then? He would dance right around it.
Now this individual wouldn’t admit that he wanted to disarm everyone. His solution to self-defense? Martial Arts. Evidently the thought never crossed his mind that his solution wouldn’t work for everyone.
This little jewel though actually made me laugh.
Now why would I laugh? Well honestly because I’m quite happy in fact that the women in my life that I care about, for the most part, all carry concealed weapons. From bloggers who I consider friends, to my wife, to local friends I hang out with. The close women in my life who don’t currently are the in-laws and I’m working on that problem. At least the father-in-law does.
There’s a running joke between my wife and I. I’m not a big fan of nuts in my chocolate cookies. So when someone asks, “I like my women like I like cookies, without nuts.” I guess I need to abridge that to also state, “I like my women to be packing steel in their pants.”
