blonde on the prairie: About Girls With Guns

February 11, 2013

“Girls with guns.” That’s what my shirt says. I got it from a girl with guns. The shirt makes me feel protected. A friend of mine taught me how to shoot so the saying on my shirt wouldn’t be a lie. Feeling safe is what I told that husband of mine was the most important thing before we got married.

I’m not mentally ill and neither are my many friends with guns. I’m guessing if the government attempts to take any more control of things they have no business peeping in to, perhaps mental illness will be the norm. In the slightest of ways it is already happening.
