I went to the gun store last week with a good pal and we got into a rather interesting discussion. Unfortunately, this was not the first time I'd had a similar discussion.
He began, "My parents were just in here last week buying guns."
I responded, "Why were they buying guns? I didn't realize your dad was into shooting or hunting."
"They buy guns to protect their food storage."
"Oooooh. Well, I'd rather die of starvation than shoot people to protect my food. Cause you are eventually going to have to kill a lot of people because they'll keep coming and I just wouldn't want that much blood on my hands."
"Well, think about it - you need to protect your family! It isn't just about you - it's about them."
"But you'll still have to kill a lot of people and you'll still get it taken in the end anyway. How long are a few guns going to thwart people? And what if they get hold of a gun? Cause that will most likely be easier to get hold of than food."
"I don't know."
First of all, what a silly conversation. Amiright?
Second, do I think this is all really going to happen? No, no I don't.
Third, yes, I would really rather die of starvation than kill someone.
Fourth, did you know they have food storage vendors at gun shows? Ha.
Have you all had this conversation before? What's your take?
