Quote of the Day – Kelly Grayson (3/29/2013)

Why yes, that is a 10-year-old girl with cerebral palsy holding an AR15. Because that’s just how we roll down here in Bitter Clingerville.

[First, go over and read the post and look at the pictures.

Yes, that AR-15 is so unwieldy according to Joe Biden that it should be banned yet all those features allow that wonderful little girl* to experience the same fun as the rest of us.

I will say it is stories like Kelly's that builds an unbelievable fire in my belly to the point of wanting to just fight this battle with a scorched earth policy.  The thought of Mr. Biden or any other person telling that little girl that she has no reason for that rifle does nothing by make my blood boil.

These people don't care about safety, violence or the rest of it.  They merely hate firearms, the people who own them, and ultimately what firearms represent.

While I like Kelly's version, I think I like mine better because it emphasizes my feelings on the subject without any question as to my meaning.

Why yes, that is a 10-year-old girl with cerebral palsy holding an AR15. Because that's just how we roll down here in Bitter Clingerville fuck you that's why!

I suppose since this is Kelly's daughter he was trying to avoid a 4 letter expletive, frankly the though of people trying to take away her tools and what she's accomplished pisses me right the hell off.  Not only does it piss me off, but there is no "why" necessary when teaching someone a skill and watching them excel at it, especially when it provides them enjoyment.

*Given Kelly has many of the same online friends as well as knows some of the same people from Meat Space as myself, as well as reading his accounts of Katy Beth, I can only assume she is as awesome as she looks in the picture. -B]
