Biting the bullet

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

 

I’ve been accused of being rude and insulting to the NRA, unwilling to accept their arguments as to why it makes good sense to carry defensive firearms in public.

Well, this will shock my target audience dead center, but I now admit that the NRA was right and I was wrong! I had thought their arguments were all hollow points, but I’ve come around to understanding the wisdom of these straight shooters.

So first things first, let me apologize for jumping the gun and having written horrible things about the NRA and its members. Had I realized how intelligent they actually are, I would have wholeheartedly supported their patriotic cause.

Look, life is full of real dangers and only the foolish venture outside unprepared for the worst. Just yesterday in Starbucks, I found myself face to face with an extremely intimidating Frappuccino. And not just your usual icy threat. This bad boy was a mocha cookie crumble topped with Expresso-infused whipped cream and caramel ribbon crunch.

Having an AK-47 locked and loaded is just good common sense in a situation like that!

And if you really want that Big Mac your way, strutting a bigger Mac-10 pistol is the best strategy.
