Someone very wise...

My friend Sam wrote this after our friend, Justin Sigley, passed away.

"Make your life ... your life. Live your life the way you want to live it. If you let someone live it for you, is it still your life? Live each day like you mean it. Live each day to the fullest. Enjoy the earth, the blue sky, and the deep green grass before it passes into memory. You only live once, you only get one shot at each moment. 30 years from now, what will you think of what you did today? The people around you don't always stay there, they'll be gone before you know it, and by then, you'll wish you could see them again because there not in touching distance. Love you friends, because no matter how much you might want to scream at them sometimes, they're you friends. Appreciate everything in life no matter how big or small, because everything is a blessing but we get too wrapped up in our own petty problems to realize how lucky we are to have the things we have. Make your life matter, spend it how you want to, and don't waste your life ... because some people were never able to live one."

Anti-Gun Activists...

So, you wanna ban guns. Now? Well, why your at it, why don't we ban knives. Or, how about we ban fists. That's kind of hard to do. We'll just take everyone's fingers off so they can't make a fist to hit someone and take their things.

We'll just ban knives so that we can't cut our steaks.

We'll just ban guns so that the people who use them correctly and civilly and who make a living off of animal meat can't do so anymore.

Yeah, come on everyone.

If you want to stop gun violence, there should be laws strictly prohibiting the sale of weapons to those who have criminal records of robbery, beatings, rape, etc. That way, those slimy bastards can't get their hands on a weapon that goes boom.

Or, they could ban guns and knives. That'd be interesting. I know by getting a knife wound, you have a way better chance of surviving, but what if you are stabbed in your femoral artery? Or how about right in your heart? Or what if you're stabbed by a group of knife wielding criminals?

[Doing a paper on gun laws, had to get this out.]
