Tonsillitis Leads to Newly Minted Gun Nut

Huh? How exactly does that work?  How does a sore throat have anything to do w/ firearms? 

Well it doesn't.  That's the point

Some parents (non-gun owners) take their teenager in for a checkup, etc.  Doctors/staff start grilling the kid on his grades, family life and..... whether the family owns guns. 

Mom's response?
Mary Rita Insley, newly sensitized to gun issues, has since applied for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card. But here's what bothers her.
"If I purchase a gun, am I then supposed to train my children to lie for fear of the government knowing I have guns?" she asked.
 Welcome to the gun control debate Ms. Insley.  Welcome to anti-gun fanatics considering you a danger to yourself and your family w/o any evidence whatsoever.

I'm reminded of a quote from Star Wars:
"The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers."

The more they try to control us, more of us become aware of the chains on our shoulders.

Just saw this GREAT idea this morning.,_Don%27t_borrow_trouble,_Part_III.htm

Download the form. This is great stuff. Perhaps could be improved upon but hitting physicians where they are most vulnerable (malpractice) is exactly the right idea.

I've heard of this, too. And, living in California, I expect to run into a doctor who asks me if I have guns.

My answer will be a very firm,"None of your D*mn business! And if you wish to keep treating me, you will never broach that subject again."

I recommend a similar response for anyone who runs into a similar situation.

My answer usually is, "yeah, I got a shitload, wanna shoot sometime?"
