Must-Read: The righteousness in Hobby Lobby’s cause
A great article at Big Hollywood that tells the story of why the right to self-defense is necessary. Here’s an excerpt:
“Thing is, he’s going to kill me.”
“Have you gone to the police?”
“Yes, of course I have.”
“And what happened?”
She shakes her head from side to side, wraps her arms protectively around her chest.
“I got a restraining order against Ned, that’s my ex-boyfriend. But you know what good that is, don’t you?”
She inscribes a big zero in the air.
Read the whole thing. I can see why the author is afraid to watch the TV news, now. As my friend Steve in Tennessee likes to say, “When seconds count, help via 9-1-1 is minutes away.” I’ll voice my thoughts on guns and the Second Amendment at some other time, but let’s just say I came around a while ago to the belief that a woman should be armed and have firearms training. There are just too many predators out there.
By the way, if you’re turned off by the dominant liberal and progressive culture of Hollywood, let me recommend the Big Hollywood site, started by Andrew Breitbart. It’s a place where moderates and conservatives in the industry (Yes, there are some of us left. The Witch Hunters haven’t found us all) can get together and exercise their right to be … Right. It’s one of my regular stops on the Web.
