Quote of the Day: 12 September 2018

The idea is certainly not mine. And similar expression of it is not unique. It may be a little bit more succinct than most. So, “Standing on the shoulders of giants…” is applicable here. I wish I could find the quote from Tam who said something along the lines of, “I don’t care if every gun owner on the planet killed someone yesterday. I didn’t. So you don’t get to take my guns from me.”
Update: NJDave found the Tam quote I was thinking of:
Where the hell do you get off thinking you can tell me I can’t own a gun? I don’t care if every other gun owner on the planet went out and murdered somebody last night. I didn’t. So piss off.
Congratulations! Posts like this, where you phrase something we’re all thinking about better than we can put it, are why I read your blog, Tam’s blog and Kim’s blog every day or as frequently as possible.
Please post URLs to Tam’s blog and Kim’s blog.
Kim du Toit and Tam.
I believe the actual closing part of her quote was: ” … so piss off …”
I knew there were some strong words at the end, but I couldn’t remember what they were. I think you got it right.
Found it for you:
“Where the hell do you get off thinking you can tell me I can’t own a gun? I don’t care if every other gun owner on the planet went out and murdered somebody last night. I didn’t. So piss off.”
I updated the post.
The leftists do not respect the individual. They prefer indoctrination,incrimination and infringement.
When I read your quote, quite well put BTW, I immediately thought of Tam’s quote. Yours is much more family friendly and inclusive of all human rights. Very well written.
