I guess I’ll never understand..

Today, someone whom I have been friends with for years, said on FaceBook that she was about to “exercise her constitutional right and go to XXXXs Sporting Goods store”. She later posted a picture of a pink Savage rifle, stating “Isn’t she pretty?”

What happened next baffles me. So-called “friends” proceeded to post whatever was on their (closed) little minds. Things like:

     “Why??”

     “OMG that’s the dumbest thing you’ve done yet..”

     “Really?? OYE!!”

     “Oh boy..”

     “Wow, that is possibly the worst idea you’ve ever had..”

Now I fully realize that firearms aren’t for everyone. But WHY do anti’s feel the need to bash and intimidate those of us who happen to enjoy them?  What ever happened to “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?”

I believe my comment is the only positive statement on her page so far, although someone did comment that “pink is pretty..”

Every time my vegan friends post, I don’t feel the need to tell them they should eat meat, or spew the benefits of a regular diet versus a vegan diet..it’s call RESPECT..and we’re losing it because of the anonymity of social media.

I can’t wait to meet up with her and her new pink Savage at the range someday soon. And I can’t WAIT to see her replies to them when she gets off work and checks her FB later..this should be good..

  1. You’re absolutely correct. It’s a matter of respect and common courtesy. Good for her for going out and purchasing something SHE wanted not what someone else thinks she should have. She’s lucky to have someone like you in her life that has her back.

  2. Concur. Without face-to-face interaction, many have lost the importance of respectful disagreement. Pre-internet, we were in close proximity to friends and colleagues. Children were raised to be respectful, even in disagreement. It seems we’re in need of a Ms. Manners 2.0 for the ‘net generation.
