Let’s walk it through. Some suburbanite who gets hot by playing with guns buys a bunch of revolvers and semi-automatic weapons. <sarc>Clearly the man relies on them for hunting purposes to feed his family.</sarc> Then a bad person comes and burgles his home, not only depriving him of a means of feeding his family the blown-apart carcasses of squirrels, bunnies and skunks but also giving said bad person the ability to generate some good old American gun mayhem.
But James, you say, Suburban Gun Idiots have the right to purchase guns!
Let me put it to you this way. I support a heck of a lot of rights. I support your legal right to do a lot of lame-assed idiot things, like own a bunch of lethal weapons you don’t need. Sometimes exercising your rights (cavalierly or to excess) not only makes the world a more dangerous place, but makes you a micro-cephalic ass clown.
If that sounds harsh, just think how harsh it might be to look down the barrel of a gun stolen from some Mattapoisettian home while you’re being victimized on the streets of New Bedford.
I refuse to tone down my language when it comes to this type of idiocy. Rights come with responsibilities. Often, there are natural consequences. But in the case of stolen weapons like these, someone else is paying for the fetish of the Suburban Gun Idiot. Will SGI be held at all responsible for his poorly protected arsenal, now in the hands of criminals?
