I think we can all say that the whole pirate thing ended awesomely. Of course, it's not that I need to be reminded that we have the most badass military alive — it's that I like being reminded of it.

But last week, as I watched the situation unfold from a studio protected by armed security, I couldn't help but be reminded of one simple fact: The unarmed are always vulnerable to the armed.

And that made me realize that this ship is no different than a shopping mall or campus: It's a place where people congregate, all operating under the assumption that we live in a sane world where if you just live your life, people won't kill you.

Not always.

In a free world, we forget how easy it is for thugs to take advantage of that freedom.

Which is why good people need guns.

I mean, how can a tanker the size of a small town be so vulnerable to a pack of underweight thugs?

The underweight thugs had guns.

Seriously, I don't get the argument against arming a few folks on planes, ships and campuses. If bozos like me in the media are protected by armed dudes, why can't we have the same for undergrads or seamen?

I also get the argument that no employee needs to risk his life to protect cargo that isn't his. But tell that to Brinks. They drive around with far less valuable stuff and they're armed to the hilt. And come on, if you had a relative on a ship — or working at a mall, for that matter — you'd want to know they're safe.

So Sunday was truly an amazing day for America and our military. But let's try to prevent this crap from happening again. A three inch .50 caliber gun might be a start. I hear it goes great with a cable-knit sweater and a pea coat.

And if you disagree with me, then you sir are worse than Hitler.

This is true Sam. The Jackals don't hunt where the Lions are. Look at VA. Tech. for example. It's a gun free campus. Did that help or hurt the nutty gunman there? How many lives might have been saved if one single law abiding citizen had been armed and knew how to shoot?

I will not be wronged and I will not have hands laid up on me. John Wayne in the Shootest. Your a Daisy if you do. Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday.

If we could prove to all the sheeple out there that this is the case it would make our jobs easier to keep our firearms. The liberal media will never let this happen though because it would be bad for ratings. Just think a gunmen opens fire in a fsat food resturant and before he can kill anybody a soccer mom pulls her Glock 19 and drops hims where he stood. Sounds good to us, but the media would rather report gunmen kills 7 then himself.

It won't change one mind, one opinion, or one vote. These people cannot understand reason or logic or facts. They only hear the propaganda from the commies that the only way to end gun violence is to take all of the guns. I was listening to conservative talk radio today and heard a young lady tell the announcer that she believed that this was the only way to end gun violence. She wouldn't even hear an alternate opinion. She wouldn't hear the facts as they were laid out for her. She wouldn't hear the statistics even though they were compelling and irrefutable. Her mind was made up and no one was going to change her mind. How can you combat this?

Go ahead punk, Make My Day!
