Response to seabeyond (Reply #50)

Fri Apr 6, 2012, 03:19 PM

108. Actually, I am trying to articulate a philosophy that has been on my mind for a while now and,

I am not doing a very good job of it.

I got hostile. That was wrong of me. You enjoy the protection of your husband with his guns in the home and you have no idea how they work and see no reason to learn. Just let Hubby handle it. All talk and No action. Words bother you. Nonaction or the lack of responsibility bother me more.
It is two-faced (to me) to enjoy the benefits of 2A and then come in here and act all like - I don't need a gun in the home when, in fact, the whole time There Is A Gun In The Home. That is a real WTF for me.

I want to apologize for letting my emotions get away with me.

I actually want to thank you. This discussion has helped me formulate a better understanding of my own philosophy.

Your opinion and emotions are valid for you. Your marriage is none of my business.

Your truth is different from mine. That is all.

I hope that you will accept my apology and that we can remain of friendly terms.
