Faln Fenix is an occasional blogger and gun blogger

Lots of other gunbloggers have been pointing to her new Sport Utility Rifle acquisition. Good on her. But I thought THIS was the money quote:

"Remember...I'm not a gun hoarder, and I'm not out to murder someone. I keep firearms for personal protection, for a sense of freedom, and to give myself a stress relief by going to the range and firing a few rounds at paper. For me, there's nothing more mentally settling than forcing oneself to calm down, focus, breathe, and squeeze that trigger."

Defense, liberty, fun. Yup. That's the golden nugget there. The gun owner trinity. Eloquent. It's why I do it, too.

Recreation - the shooting range - is one of the very best reasons for an individual to own guns. Putting food on the table, defending family and livestock from predators is even better. It has been 45 years since a rabid skunk trotted through our yard. That is still too frequent.

I believe that there are stronger reasons for a community and a nation to acknowledge and protect the ability of citizens to own guns.

Yup, that pretty much sums up why I own guns too.

She's from your state BTW.
