    There's a gun in my house; and I'm strrangely OK with that.

    http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2015/01...n-in-my-house/

    To quote Instapundit - I'd be very concerned. Concerned about what happened to all the other guns.

    It's nice to find someone going through the process of "getting it".

    She's a noob all around. Needs lots of edumicating, but hey - it's a start!

    Just sad that reading her site, I found this little tidbit. In the "first foray" post she wrote, she complained about the pain to her shoulder. No wonder. Any higher with the toe of that stock and it'd clear shred the top of her shoulder and leave a nasty mark.

    Oh and of course, the image is AK.jpg (as in not AR... < sigh > )

    I decided then and there that I could shoot someone in that situation and I wanted the ability to do it in case a terrorist ever walks through my front door, because merely “sheltering-in-place” isn’t going to protect me from the bad guys. - Paula Bolyard
    Who exactly were going door to door after the bombing? the terrorist(s)?

    Yes, as it develops.
    A person, group, or organization that uses violent action, or the threat of violent action, to further political goals. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/terrorist

    Yes it is.

    That's the thing about idealism, though. It's a luxury few can afford.

    Idealism: "I never wanted one in my home and, like a lot of moms, I wanted to raise non-violent children and thought keeping guns out of our home was one way to do that …

    Reality: It doesn't matter whether a bad guy is a terrorist or a criminal. Neither one gives a flying back-flip about your ideals.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Am I the only one that found that odd?

    Agreed that it is a good direction for her to be taking, and I hope she is getting her training from someone other than her "experienced-marksman"-who-was-living-gun-free husband.
