Goodmorning and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the crowd at ARP!
From Corny's post: I know a guy right now who will absolutely freak out if you even attempt to show him a gun..... Im not word smithing either..... this boy will freak out to the point of threatening to become violent....lol.... If you dont put the gun away.
When I read this, my first thought was not freaking out about guns... rather someone that was soooo emotionally unstable they did not have any self-control. This kind of emotional unstability comes from a really messy life, a place where denial is the only way one can function. Sometimes the person is running from a situation, sometimes from an experience, sometimes from themselves. Regardless... the person is not mentally healthy... and they are potentially a threat to themselves as well as those around them... How? Well when that cashier in the store freaked out over the mag... well she also has to drive home after her shift... I wonder if she is mentally stable enough to not do something irrational and cause an accident?
We really need to address the was our society lives on the edge... rather than blame an inanimate object... when our frayed lifestyle causes issues.
