It’s so weird how you react differently to gunshots. I had weird childhood. I’m from the mountains. Grew up on horses with guns. I can hunt anything. I also would move back & forth to a gang controlled large inner city. I’ve been shot at as a kid. Ran as a gang chased me in a car & shot at me as a kid. Seen people die. Seen dead people who were shot; strangled, whatever. I remember being a little boy & stumbling upon a person in a ditch who’d been killed. As an adult I got training & tried to save lives. I’ve saved some. It’s amazing to come across a child who is dying & save their life. You feel like God has used you to grant a child a second chance. All the glory to God. But back to gunshots. I just heard a gun shot near my house. Hunting? Target practice? Shooting a snake? We mountain people are a different breed. Not fully civilized. Like we have one foot in the past; one in the present. We hear gunshots here & think nothing of it. Oh full disclosure. I’m also a martial artist. Over my bed is two samari swords. I can use both at once. By my bed is an assault rifle & pump shot gun. On my night stand is a 45; K bar, night vision goggles, & Kevlar vest. Under my bed is a sniper rifle & several others. This sounds odd to others I’m sure. My family is military. All the way back to before written history we been fighting wars. We grow up hunting; fishing, & farming. That food you eat comes from families like mine. Those soldiers who keep China & Russia from invading come from families like mine. I’ve never heard of someone being shot in this area in my 60 yrs. But when I lived in the inner city. Wow. It’s like a war zone. Parents raising violent kids. Kids with guns not to hunt. But to commit crimes & kill people. It’s like a different world. There is no regard for human life. I actually hate guns. But we have deadly snakes & stuff around here. I actually had a bear near me as a kid. Once when hunting in elementary school a big cat decided to hunt me. I won. We don’t live in the big city or suburbs. Where we live we must be armed. I’ll give you an example. As a teen a kid screamed. I looked. A deadly snake was fixing to strike. I quickly shot it from about 40 feet away. See for us the world is still like those settler shows. Wild animals don’t know we think we are in charge. In big cities the wild animals are actually gang bangers LOL. I’ve had people tell me if we ban guns that will stop. No. You’d disarm me. But not them. Illegal immigrants are illegal. Millions are here. Drugs are illegal; yet anyone can buy any drug. The drug cartels can flood guns in here for the gangs to sell just as easily as they smuggle in illegals & drugs. Don’t live in a fantasy land. Want to hear something funny. I’m a vegetarian. Well I eat eggs & nuts. No live animals. Not the cowboy you expected huh? But I’ll tell you this; if I hear a gunshot in the city I grab a pistol & load it as I roll into the floor. I’ve been trained my whole life. It’s second nature. They trained me to be a soldier. I trained my kids to set on their ass in an office & make $. Yet 2 are going into the Air Force anyways. So I guess st least one of them will be zipping around in jets one day like their grandpa. Well better that than a Ranger like their other grandpa. It’s funny. Things to divorce they had 4. Korean pilot. Vietnam pilot. Ranger. Korean Army officer. Two blood gpas is WWII. On & on. Somewhere in pre-history my family decided we’d fight as soldiers. I was going Air Force after college. Wife cried till I gave up & didnt. I raised my kids not to be soldiers at her request. Now 2 will be. Oh well; guess my family will never break this cycle.
