Guns don’t kill people.
Dads with pretty daughters do.

[I can’t say that this actually happens that often. It was something I generally wanted to avoid but I did tell my daughters there was a “Blood for Tears” policy in effect (each girl tear would result in an ounce of boy blood) and they should inform the boys that came prowling. When I asked a couple of the boys if they had been fully informed they seemed surprised.
It turns out neither of my daughters had informed any of the boys.
I can’t imagine why they failed to do that. They are usually quite responsible. I would have hated to have been in the middle of a blood letting and had one of the girls back up the boys claim that he didn’t know.–Joe]
I have told my daughter to tell any male friends that I follow the philosophy of the dad in the movie “Clueless,” which I paraphrase as, “I have a shotgun, a shovel, and a big back yard, and should you harm or upset my daughter I doubt very much you will be missed.”
