My next door neighbor wants to ban all guns!

This was forwarded to me by a friend.

All I have and all that I am is by the Grace of God!

Ralph, My neighbor is a "lefty" of sorts (Obama bumper stickers,

gung-ho socialized medicine, "guns should be banned", etc.).

So last week I put this sign up in my yard after one of his anti-gun rants at a

neighborhood cocktail party. The sign wasn't up more than an hour before

he called the police and wanted them to make me take down

the sign.

Fortunately, the officer politely informed him that it was not their job

to take such action without a court order and that he had to file a complaint

"downtown" first, which would be reviewed by the city attorney to see if it

violated any city, county, or state ordinances, which if there was a violation a

court order would be sent to the offending party (me) to "remove the sign in

seven days".

After several weeks he was informed that the sign was legal (by a quarter of an

inch) and there was nothing the city could do, which obviously made him madder.

I tried to smooth things over by inviting him to go shooting with me and my friends

at the hunt club but that seemed to make him even more angry. I then asked him if he

wanted to go to a Tea Party rally but again he declined my outreach efforts to bring

about a better understanding between political and social opponents.

I am at a loss how to reconcile our long relationship (notice I did not say friendship),

any suggestions would be welcome. Anyway, that's life in our neck of the woods,

how's about yours?

    Tell him that there are plenty of socialist countries that already ban guns and that he should be happy to live in the one of his choosing.

    Sorry you have such an utter dumbass for a neighbor. Why reconcile? If anything I would look at him everytime you see him and just smile :0)

    Him and people like him in thought and philosophy are the reason why this country has reached the point it has. By all means lets create more entitlement for the folks who whould rather steal, deal drugs, and receive welfare and not work,so they can have it easy while the rest of us work our asses off to never get ahead.

    Power to the Sheepole!!!!!!

    Ted is a true sage. A little rough around the edges but I agree 100% with him!!! There should be NO limit to gun ownership in America. I for one practice that right at every opportunity.

    If you really want to change his mind about guns-ring his door bell with a toy gun some day and ask him how he would protect himself lf it was real?
  • deckman204 AL 2010/04/10 12:21:24
    Considering he surely doesn't own one, you wouldn't run the risk of getting shot!!!!!!!
  • AL deckman204 2010/04/11 02:39:23 (edited)

    the banning of guns is a ridiculous concept conformed to by those who think that banning guns will take them out of the hands of criminals, but the thing they need to realize is that criminals break the law, if guns are banned it takes them away from the people who are "packing" for protection, and put them in the hands of BAD people
