Dangerous Minds
Guns—lots of ‘em—and really strong coffee. What could possibly go wrong? You might expect something like this from Chick-fil A, but did you know that it’s “Starbucks Appreciation Day,” as organized by Second Amendment enthusiasts in as many as 30 states? Apparently so according to the Facebook page that was set up for it. Might be a good day to test out the java at Dunkin’ Donuts, eh?
Starbucks Appreciation Day
You see, this kind of obesity is contagious.  The guy in the red shirt will look just like the others in a couple years. When you're continually surrounded by big fat pigs, it's easy for you to let your own eating habits go a little. Gradually, you look like them.
But for gun owners it's doubly bad. Extra large folks can't run ten steps if that's what it would take to avoid a shootout.  They can't bend down or easily maneuver their bulk out of the way of a threat. They'd be more likely to resort to the last resort.  For them the last resort is the only resort.
Hypocrisy is their middle name.  They talk about carrying a gun for self defense or to defend their families while they eat themselves into an early grave.  If self preservation were the real goal, they'd push themselves away from the table, and join the local gym.
I shouldn't even mention beer drinking.  All the pro-gun commenters around here are models of responsible drinking.  TS has only one beer a day.  I'll bet these boys in front of Starbucks put away a few more than that.
What do you think?  Please leave a comment.
