Right to Bear Arms

In light of today's proper ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States, I thought I would share a few pictures my hubby took of our youngest daughter this last weekend.

My husband and I were sitting on our deck enjoying the weather and a few brewskies (that's beer for those not familiar with Chicago lingo : )

My youngest daughter came out to see us, and she was wearing her finest commando outfit. No reason for said outfit, she just found some things that matched and put them on. This inspired my hubby to run to the basement and retrieve a few of his guns so he could take some pictures of our lovely daughter holding them.

She normally has a much happier look on her face......she was trying to look mean, LOL.

I am happy to know that we will continue to have the legal right to own our guns, and that we will be able to teach our daughters how to arm and defend themselves when they get older.

I always like it when our government gets something right.

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

I can't believe it was only 5-4 though.

I just wanted to tell you that the more I get to know you the more I realize we would totally hit it off in *real life*

Thankfully Bush had the sense to put some decent judges on the court during his term.

I think we would get along "swimmingly" as well ; )

Some of my favorite photos are of my kids handling rifles. They both love guns - and both own guns. I was also very pleased with the ruling!
