Woman Takes Aim at Plastic Army

Woman Takes Aim at Plastic Army

Daniel Taverne
March 06, 2010

I was at the Veteran´s hospital in Jackson, Mississippi waiting for an appointment when an episode of "Trading Spouses" came on the waiting room TV.

In this episode, a progressive big city woman took a trip to Tennessee and stayed with a southern country dad and his kids. Of all the opinions this woman had of the southern family, one stood out in my mind more than all the others. Let me explain.

The dad spent time playing with his young son. They sat on the boy´s bedroom floor battling with little green plastic army men. To make a short story even shorter, the city-woman was appalled that the dad was allowing his son to play with them.

The big city girl voiced her opinion by saying the boy is growing up thinking it is okay to "shoot bad guys" that he´ll be one of those kids who shoots his classmates someday. While listening to her irrational opinions, I got the impression that she was anti-gun and thereby anti-second amendment.

Let me tell you, I was taken aback! I played with little green army men when I was a kid, and I grew up to volunteer for this man´s Army. I Was there to defend that woman´s right to say those idiotic things she was saying, and, I didn´t grow up to become a murderer.

Regardless of what we hear coming at us from "the media", we, as a nation, can´t allow ideals surrounding the 2nd amendment to become stigmatized. CMT, however intended, showed Southern hicks abiding with the idea of firearms while the city girl didn´t. They showed one family behind the times, and one progressive woman ´with it´. However subtle, this seems propaganda-like to me.

According to the Second amendment of our constitution, our right to keep and bear arms is not to be infringed! Though there are inherent responsibilities that come with them, firearms are a way for ´we the people´ to defend ourselves from any source of tyranny, foreign or domestic.

Our privately owned firearms are truly our last line of defense. Hopefully we will never have to use them. Let me repeat a quote I´ve heard concerning firearms: "It´s better to have them and not need them, then need them and not have them.

The media loves these psycho people and there rhetoric. Hell, every boy I knew in my neighborhood had those little green men, including me. I volunteered for the military as well.

I remember

as a kid (10 or so)in Houston of all places, there was a kid named Ronnie that I played with on occasion who's mother was exactly like this woman. There was no playing with army men, cowboys and indians or anything that she deemed "violent" (which was just about everything).

I used to think that was so wierd (still do) but I can imagine a "protected" kid like that groing up to be a mass murderer or some shit, it just ain't natural.

My mother hosted a coffee klatch and the ladies all helped put the little plastic vests on my army men. The clasps were a little difficult for my small hands, She made bullets for Remington during World War Two.

My mother

My mother was the one who showed me how to shoot a handgun. She'd learned from my grandpa. My father couldn't hit anything with a handgun, and his macho bullshit prevented him from accepting any advice from my mother. When I really got serious about handguns, she always wanted to shoot anything and everything I had. After my father died, she always had both a shotgun and a rifle loaded and put just inside (behind) the outside doors. "You just never know", she'd say.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).

Your Mother was correct Bob. I'd rather be ready and never have to, than be a victim because I wasn't ready, smart lady/

Women & handguns

My mother has told this for as long as I can remember, and her brothers and sisters confirm the same. Back in the 1920's-30's, when they lived in Chama, New Mexico, Grand Pa would let the kids shoot the S&W 38 in the corner of the bedroom. (Yes inside of the house) Grand Pa was an old cowboy out of Baird County, Texas. Back then all people grew up much different than todays PUSSIES! This woman you are talking about, would go ape shit to hear a story like this! My cousin was Pueblo, Colorado's first female Police Officer, Grand Pa tought her the S&W and the 12ga. riot shot gun.

"reality" tv shows

How do we know that whole scenario was not staged? The producers of the show get paid for ratings. Most of us have an agenda. Hollywood producers are no different. Judging someone from a made up reality show is difficult at best. The viewing public has taken it on faith that what they are watching is unscripted. It would not surprise me at all to learn the producers set that scenario up along with the reaction of the lady in question. As far as I know, these "reality actors" get paid; therefore, they will more than likely have a contract. A contract means accountability to someone.

Correct clint!

All I know is that reality shows are bullshit, plain and simple....define reality as it applies here.

Like my Dad always said, "believe half of what you see and none of what you hear", never has that been more true......

I make a point

not to really watch television much, unless it's news...
I always watched 24, but now since it's off...nothing of
interest anymore.

try burn notice, I enjoy it quite a lot, but then again I like Chuck and Life (when it was on), and human target (Jackie Earley Haley is awesome). 24 was a good show, but Jack Bauer is the most unlucky dude in the world, and why does he never eat in the 24 hour period, he never went to the bathroom either?

Hey Clint

Do other characters in TV shows routinely go
to the bathroom? Anyway, I just never watched
a show where the entire hour went by so fast.
I can't be bothered to watch hollywood actors
I find them to be complete idiots and I just don't
feel like it is worth my time. I am reading a
book by Thomas Sowell...he's a great writer...check
it out. When I get back to the US (I am currently
stuck here due to Dust Storms) I am going to go
back to school, shoot, take some shooting courses
and ride my 3 bicycles and Harley. I don't think I
am going to have a television in my house...definitely
not cable, I just don't want to waste time watching
mindless idiots from Hollywood...I can entertain myself.

Pkato, for the most part, no. But we are not watching a whole day of their lives. It is understood that personal hygene can happen when we are not peering through the magic talking box. Jack Bauer is one of the greatest TV characters ever, in my opinion. My inquiry about when he eats or relieves himself was just a casual observation of the show.

The best part

is they are getting shouted down by their own
supporters, which in a way is good...but they
won't support conservatives anyway. But it's
nice to see Pelosi deal with shit like this, because
honestly I think she is one of the biggest goofballs
in the history of American politics.

TV

I recomend the history channel, that's all that I watch in the winter when there is nothing else to do, but in the summer I would rather watch the grass grow than watch TV.

I am with Pkato in that I refuse to do anything to support the hollywood liberals!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the history channel is owned by GE. Read samD's post located here http://www.gunslot.com/pictures/barry-sotero-hassan-obamas-agenda-overwh... to learn a little bit about GE and how they fit into the Manchurian President's scheme.
