In many circles, some Americans seem reluctant to admit their status as gun owners. Big city residents, entertainers, and others are sometimes reticent to let others know they know and understand the proven benefits of firearms ownership. It’s almost as if they are Christians afraid to discuss their faith, or gays afraid to tell their acquaintances of their sexuality. All of these groups are sometimes intimidated by the reaction of bigots who don’t understand or who don’t tolerate diversity well.
Actress Katherine Heigl isn’t among those folks. She sent out a tweet in recent days guaranteed to cause gun-haters to cry and stamp their feet like petulant children.
With decisions come consequences.
The who ignore the proven benefits of firearm ownership are doomed to live with the consequences of their decisions for the rest of their lives. However long that might be.
