I’m no advocate for change but,
…there are some things that just need to be re-evaluated after a period of time. Sometimes it takes a new set of eyes to look at the same issue and offer up a new solution. Other times it takes a more brutal approach and slaps us right in the face and says:
“Wake up! Things are not how they should be!”
This weekend my house was broken into and I am at the point where I need to decide if having a firearm in the house is a better alternative to not having one. Being a parent and living in more rural zone puts these reasons at the top of the argument for the pro side. The flip side of this is that I am possibly endangering my child by simply having one in the house.
Lets get real though, all that was taken was a 3 liter bottle of root beer and 7$ in cash.
“But that was MY root beer and I wanted to drink it while playing EQ2 on double experience Sunday dammit!”
If you ask my wife, she thinks I was more upset about the root beer than anything else but I can’t help but think if the burglar had come upstairs would I have gone and picked up a new Smith and Wesson the next morning. Someone violated my house and my refrigerator! They gots ta pay.
