Very Proud Husband, Had to Share


PDA

Like the title says I am very proud of my wife and would like to share it. Yesterday while in her English 101 class they had their monthly current events discussion, and of course someone wanted to talk about gun control. The professor decided to go with it as she is very much in support of it. Anyway she asked all the students to raise their hands if they owned guns, being in Alabama the majority did. She then asked if they owned more than one, a few hands went down. Then she asked who owned more than five, about five hands stayed up. As my wife was the only female who still had her hand up the professor decided she would be the easy target and laid into her.

Professor: “Why would anyone ever need that many guns?”

Wife: “Well I have one for carry, one on my nightstand, one in my home office, one for deer hunting, one for squirrel hunting, and an AR-15” teacher cuts her off.

Professor: “Why on earth would a woman need a fully automatic assault rifle?”

Wife: “First on of all it isn’t fully automatic, second it isn’t an assault rifle as it would have to be select fire to be one” teacher cuts her off again.

Professor: “Well that doesn’t matter, and your just avoiding the question.”

Wife: “No, I’m not, I am trying to educate the ignorant. And if I could finish I would answer your question. It’s because as a woman I never want to be overpowered and raped, especially in my own home.”

Professor: “But why would you ever need thirty rounds to defend yourself?”

Wife: “Because we live out in the middle of nowhere and the burglars are never nice enough to let us know when they will be there and how many there will be.”

Professor: “Well fine. How many guns do you own?”

Wife: “Not enough.”:evil:

You're a lucky man :)

What college does she go to?

Aside from a very few people in places like Huntsville/Madison, Alabama is great place for gun owners.

You're a lucky man. Glad she was able to educate the ignorant.

Though in general, and not as a jab at your wife, but any time we play the "why do you need" game, we're choosing to let the antis dictate terms.

"Need" is irrelevant. The only real answer to "why do you need____" is "Need has nothing to do with what property I choose to own and what rights I choose to excercise".

Well played. She is a smart one for sure! I like how she called the teacher ignorant without really saying you are ignorant. That was awesome!

Calhoun in Huntsville right now.

I agree but overall I think she did a very good job.

She most definately is. Unfortunately she has to go to work about the time I get off today so we will celebrate tomorrow night.

You're a lucky man

You have no idea how true that is.

Noticed how the prof hit the same old tired talking points ... like "why would anyone need ..." and "Why on earth would a woman need ...".


I am proud of the stand your wife took. I hope she crumbled the walls in the professor's mind just a bit!

College... the place of open minds and higher learning.

Glad I'm already finished with all that.

Why do you need a gun?

When did you stop beating your wife/husband/girlfriend/children?

It's a loaded question (no pun intended). The question presumes that if you cannot prove need, then you cannot justify the gun. The question is irrelevant. Enshrined in our Constitution is the Bill of Rights. No one needs justification to exercise any of those rights. No one has to answer ANY of these questions:

Why do you need freedom of religion? Speech? Assembly? Press?
Why do you need a firearm?
Why do you refuse to accept Federal troops living in your home?
Why do you not want the police to search your home without a warrant and take whatever they want?
Why do you not want your local government to seize your home and give it to their buddies?
Why do you need a trial and a jury when you have committed a crime? Why do you need a defense attorney?
Why do you oppose your police torturing suspects?


ALL of these are protected by the Bill of rights, and require no answer or justification on the part of a citizen of the United States of America.

Well to answer that she only talks to about 5 people in that class and 4 out of the 5 are Marines so you can guess how that was.

Better watch out. Her English professor is just trying to find out who is a right wing gun nut and therefore who he should fail. Been there, done that. She'll learn real fast to pretend she's a commie when doing her homework assignments. I watched my papers go from C- to A in my "business ethics" class by doing that. Did I mention I got to watch Al Gore's climate change movie during programming class? Yeah, it's that bad. She'll learn. Good luck.

Actually I doubt it will make a lot of difference as this professor is pregnant and will be out for the rest of the semester starting March 1st. Don't know about the professor replacing her.

Your wife rocks, sir.

As to the question of "need" - why did Rosa Parks "need" to sit in the front of the bus?

I don't need to justify exercising what is my right.

Having been through a lot of useless college, I have to say...

She'll never change the professors mind. All she will do is draw negative attention to herself and set herself up for a bad grade (or grades).

I admire her, but using logic with liberal professors (virtually all Of academia) is useless and is setting yourself up for bad grades or worse.

Wow!

You have a BEAUTIFUL wife!

I could picture my wife saying the same kinds of things...but she doesn't actually own any of her own firearms. Yet.

As for setting up for bad/failing grades...That would be an exceedingly stupid thing for an English professor to try. All your wife has to do is keep all her homework records and exams for subsequent review.

Not hard to defend in such a class.

But honestly...I wouldn't worry about it. Especially since the prof isn't likely to be around for the whole course.

:):)

Lol, the English grades will be subjective. Especially her English grade.

Keep up the faith, though. And for gods sake don't borrow money to pay for college. For the most part it is a rip off.

Did one of my English classes last semester, my professor nixed a gun control discussion when one of the young Obamanites brought it up, I think it had to do with the feral grins on the faces of us former service personnel (Marines and Army) and this was a couple months before Sandyhook. She knew where I stood with my paper on gunsmithing. So did the professor even catch the insult in your wife's response?

Nice, tell her way to go and get her some more guns when y'all can afford them.

There are times in your life when standing up for your beliefs outweigh the consequences. This was one of them! Give your wife a hug from all of us! ;)

That's the holier than thou Piers Morgan approach. They don't want your response in the first place because as far as they are concerned you are not qualified to answer it.....and they are really afraid you just might be.

Tell her I'm proud of her as well.

Good on her!

We need more women standing up for their rights and I guess that the prof. learned the hard way that the little lady sitting in class isn't such a soft target after all.

I suspect that your wife is already much t0o smart for whatever class that was she is attending. Good for her on presenting a clear, rational, logical rebuttal of a clearly ignorant liberal academic.

I'd definitely hang on to her, too!
