Being a law-abiding American who happens to own guns in 2018 is becoming an increasingly frustrating existence.
Are there bad people who own guns? Clearly. But there are bad people who own kitchen knives, golf clubs and cleaning chemicals, too. Should all of those be banned because of a few bad apples?
Perhaps the most frustrating part of these leftist narratives is how they try to paint gun owners as unhinged lunatics clinging to their guns while muttering about some paranoid-driven boogeyman.
That’s obviously not how most gun owners are.
Any sane American should be readily cognizant of that fact, but every once in a while, it’s nice to be reminded about just how normal, for lack of a better term, gun owners are, and how much decorum gun owners can have.
The above video, which was sitting at over 1.8 million views as of Sunday, shows just how unhinged these “crazy gun owners” were when it was time to get some Black Friday shopping done.
Notice the “crazed” way in which these prospective gun purchasers entered the Kentucky Gun Co. in Bardstown, Kentucky, in a calm and orderly fashion? Notice how these “lunatics” entered the store in a single-file line?
And don’t even get me started on the audacity these gun buyers had to smile and wave at the camera.
That video is then juxtaposed with the actual lunacy surrounding Black Friday shoppers at a Walmart.
Seeing as how these Walmart shoppers were likely trying to buy a new television set, laptop or videogames, those should all be banned too right? Going by liberal logic, people looking to purchase those items are clearly unhinged and an active danger to society.
It’s no secret that Black Friday brings out some of the absolute worst in American shoppers. But if people like David Hogg were right, gun buyers on Black Friday should be the absolute worst of the worst, right?
That’s clearly not the case, as the above video shows.
And while I’d like to refrain from painting in the broad strokes that the far left is so fond of doing, the overwhelming majority of gun owners I’ve met are often the most level-headed, calmest and most respectful people I know.
So the next time you hear someone bashing gun owners as unhinged war mongers, point them to this article and video.
There are a lot of crazy people in this world. However, from my personal experience, and as the above viral video clearly shows, gun owners typically aren’t among those groups.
