Guns And Blenders

Recently in the news there was a story out of Arizona about a black gentleman that attended the presidential town hall meeting. You may have heard about this on the news.

By looking at him he looks like a regular guy. He could be you neighbor or perhaps an attorney. I don't know, all I'm saying is he looked like you and I outside of one thing. He had a AR-15 slung over his shoulder.

Of course the media ATE this up.... but what I don't get is why the big deal? Sure he's carrying a rifle that can kill someone but why is it shocking? Cars kill people and you don't see the media interviewing the people that drove to the town hall.

People don't drop their jaws at blenders either. I bet those nasty contraptions have malled a hand or two. Perhaps we should put a ban on them? It may save lives! You never know.

Bottom line is that guns are tools. As are blenders. Inanimate objects. If you plug in a blender and flip the switch, I bet it would maim some tomatoes into submission. A tomato killer so to speak. The same goes for guns. Load a bullet into the chamber, pull the trigger and it goes BANG!
The one thing that they have in common is the operator. There in lies the problem. Not firearms or blenders.

I suggest a people ban.

But that would be silly.
