What does my use of tools have to do with politics????

I have trained with and used firearms for more than 50 years. I have used them for sport. I have used them to provide meat for my family. I have used them to defend myself and my family in my home against violent criminals. I have used them to defend my country.

I have and use many, many different types of tools that, used unsafely or improperly, can cause injury or death. But part of being free is the right to use tools that improve my life and the responsibility to use them in a safe and proper manner.

My use of tools - ANY tools has NOTHING to do with my hope for the betterment of all my fellow citizens.

Do you select your tools based on your political philosophy or their ability to perform the task at hand?

I use a hammer when I need to use a hammer. I use a saw when I need to use a saw. I use a firearm when I need to use a firearm.

What does that make me? It make me a free, hard working, tool using citizen. What does it have to do with my socially liberal politics? Not a single thing.

Semper Fi,
