There's an idiot named Henry Rollins

who has a meme that's basically "Guns are for weak people, you're wrong if you think otherwise."  Which is stupid on its face for a variety of reasons, but Burkhead has his own response for a lot of people:
Yes, guns are tools for the weak.  They are what give the weak a fighting stance against aggressors who are stronger than them.  If you really think that worshiping the strong over the weak is a good thing, I have only one thing to say to you:

Crack open a history book.

If, however, you think that justice demands that the weak, faced with a violent encounter, to return safely to their loved ones then you can’t ask for a better option than to allow them to be armed, to be armed with weapons that do not rely on strength or lifelong dedication in developing skill.
My response anymore to idiots who pop up with "You can learn to protect your self unarmed, guns are bad!" is "So people who're weak, or sick, or crippled, aren't allowed to defend themselves?  You ableist bastard!"

It pisses them off, which is the idea.  I'm sick of them.

Well, when you said the name Henry Rollins, I knew something monumentally stupid would follow. Henry gotta be Henry.

Sigh, once upon a time when I was young and foolish (mostly the latter) I could mix it up pretty well - and managed to survive. Now, being OTB (old tired and broken) not so much. Apparently the rollins's of the world would more than willingly sacrifice MY health (what is left) on their 'altar' of political correctness. SMH - I'd be willing to place a small wager that I could still kick his behind on a 'fair' fight (btw I DO NOT fight 'fair').
I think I'll stick to my guns (pun intended) and use whatever legal means I can to protect myself and my loved ones.
