I am new so here so try to bear with me a little as I begin a serious rant. It all started on a visit to the sisters house over the holidays. The brother in law is off in Iraq fighting bad guys as a logisitics support officer and the sister as in the rear raising the nieces in Central Texas. I hear that the sister has gone out and bought a shotgun to protect house and home while the brother in law is away. Curious I ask about what kind and find out that she did not buy one, instead they upgraded the alarm to the house instead. Seems that there has been a big increase in assaults and break ins in the area with most of the male population of Central Texas off in the Middle East and now the whole neihborhood all has monitored alarm systems. So I ask "why not get a gun anyway" and she tells me that the brother in law does not believe in the second. WOW! I say this is from the guy that talks like he is several steps to the right of Rush Limbaugh and he doesn't believe in the second? Yep, I get several nods of agreement from around the room and some of the other military officers are fully on board rejecting the second as well. Guns it seems are strictly for police and military. These are company and field grade officers. So then I drop the proverbial bomb and say "If you are far right wing and don't support the second than the only belief system open to you is fascism." Could have heard a pin drop. And I really get some really blank confused looks. So I give a quick impromptu poli sci lesson and still get no where. So then I wonder how many others there are like that out there? If we are relying on these guys who have sworn to support and defend the constitution where does that leave us? Most of the officers I associate with do support the second quite fully and vigorously but not it appears all.... What are your experiences?
