Protecting your women in the Land of the Sheeple.


Every day, when I read the news, there are stories about young women disappearing.  Or, having disappeared 20 or 30 years ago, being found buried in some field.  It almost never seems to happen to men. Even in our rural county, we have had women who were out jogging on the back roads simply disappear into thin air.  Some years back, a young lady walking on one of our state park trails was kidnapped and murdered by a psychopath.  That was so horrific the state changed the law against carrying in state parks. She'd had a concealed carry permit, but being a good citizen she obeyed the law and left her gun at home. The guy who killed her, being a psychopath, did not obey the law .

I have a wife and daughter.  My wife works away from the home county and my daughter lives up North.  They both had concealed carry permits, but let them lapse.  My wife teaches, so she couldn't carry her gun in her car. My daughter moved to a state where it was difficult if not impossible to get a concealed carry permit.



I bought them the best mace units I could find.  I got them cell phones with GPS locators. Still, I worry. Especially about my daughter. She is a hostess at a restaurant and works nights. She is also very independent, and very pretty.  I always nag her about parking close to the doors at work, because she works late some nights. When the manager wanted her to park around back in a poorly lit employee parking lot, I called the guy and we had a frank and open exchange of views. He had a daughter so he eventually agreed she could park out front.  I made her promise me that when she got off work, if it was late she would get one of the men to walk her out. They don't mind.  I also give her the big "situational awareness" spiel periodically. Don't walk to your car talking on a cell phone. Keep your head swiveling between the door and your car , no matter what time of day or where you are. Never let some guy you don't know get close to you.  Never go near a car that pulls up near you, if they need directions they can ask a cop. When in doubt, scream and run. Yell "rape!"  That should bring some help, there have to be a few men in the crowd of sheeple.

I taught my wife and my daughter firearms use, but that's of little help if you don't have a gun.   I hauled my daughter to Karate lessons,  72 miles round trip, two days a week, for ten years. But the girl who was killed up on the trail had a black belt in karate. The guy who killed her had a gun. I don't take so much comfort in the karate thing anymore.

It really bothers me that some mincing pimp of a politician puts my wife and daughter at risk because the egotistical "we know how you should live"  SOB makes laws that prevent  my family from carrying a weapon to protect themselves.  I do what I can, but I guess I will worry about my wife and my daughter until I die. And maybe after.

  1. That's an odd looking revolver in that second photo... lets see if anyone else can tell you why it's different.

    1. You know, I looked at that and I'm damned if I can figure out what the weapon is.

  2. Where to begin? It isn't just the politicians. Most raging Feminist are the one's pushing gun control while they simultaneously spread propaganda about how Women are safe where ever they go and that being told they should watch themselves is simply the White Male Patriarchy attempting to control them. The same propaganda they use that tells these Women that treating any random Black man suspiciously is racist.

    So it isn't just gun control that is setting these women up.

    And isn't that a Rhino revolver?

    1. Matt might know. I saw it was bizarre but haven't ever seen one before.

      My wife and daughter don't buy into the feminist philosophy. They think women should be treated equally in matters of pay and profession. But they don't ignore physical reality. My wife is fairly traditional but has no qualms about having her say in family affairs, and I don't mind because in the south we're used to women acting in the framework of the family. My daughter is more aggressive. Recently she and her significant other have been having some issues because he wants to help pay for some of the household things that are her area. I heard my wife telling her on the phone that "in a relationship, the male will want to provide and protect, and you have to let him or it will not work." I didn't get into that, but my wife was right. I think my daughter is smart enough to live in the real world and adjust accordingly.

      I'm mainly mad that I have to worry about this type of thing because of a bunch of limp wristed guys who don't go to the head without their body guards, but pass laws that keep my wife and daughter from being able to use the best tool for their own protection. As for women like Feinstein and Boxer, they do the same thing. It's easy to say women don't need guns when you have a security detail armed to the teeth to protect you.

    2. You are quite lucky because you cannot protect someone who doesn't want to be protected.

      All I can do is point out that these politicians follow the standard mantra in every area not just gun control. If you follow it and see where their support comes from and who votes for them it is easy to see where it originates.

    3. There are a large number of people who don't take any responsibility for themselves, and expect someone else to fix all their problems. That's the philosophy the government inculcates in the young at every opportunity, because it increases dependency and control. I know the most strident voices supporting that tend to come from special interest groups with their own vision of what society would be if they could just force their values on everyone else.

  3. If someone harms that lovely girl I'm driving up there and we'll handle the problem together. She's a sweet young lady. You have a valid point - big city mayors love to pass gun laws forbidding us our God given rights as six bodyguards, armed with select fire weapons, watch their backs. Yep, its a Rhino.

    1. I hate being so out of the picture. I'm also not entirely sure of the guy she's chosen. I suppose no father ever is. He isn't as forceful as I would like, but I've never seen him in a situation where it's called for. I can't follow my daughter around the rest of her life, and I can't always be there with my wife since she works so far away. It's a difficult situation.

      I never heard of a Rhino, which is strange considering how much time I put in reading about guns.

  4. Speaking of sheeple, this is pretty much what really happens at a political rally.

  6. That was funny. I admire the Australian sense of humor.

  7. My wife and two daughters never go without one of us guys, PERIOD. My oldest son is still in Fla., and he has a group of female friends that ask him and one or two other guys to go with them when they go out. We don't have any weapons, not because I am against them, I'm not, just haven't had the funds to get one. I know we should have a couple. I thought it best to relocate the family to rural country first.

    1. When my kids were home, it was relatively safe for my daughter to go out on dates, since the kids tended to go in groups of two couples for transportation purposes. Also, everywhere they went there were other people around. But when she went up to Canada to go to school, everything changed. I worried about it but I knew she couldn't stay here forever, nor would she want to. Once they get away they have to really look out for themselves. Twenty something girls seem to be among the favorite prey for crazies, but even middle aged women have to be careful if they are out by themselves. I don't blame the girls for asking for escorts, they are showing good judgement. As for weapons, you can only do what is within your means. Probably getting out to a rural environment first was a good judgement call. I am not sure where you are (and I'm not asking) but if there is turkey hunting there, go to a gun store after turkey season and you can probably pick up a good pump 12 gauge for about half the original price. If I could only have one weapon I'd want a pump shotgun.

  8. Yep. I find myself worrying about that a lot too. There is no goal line where you can spike the ball in victory and be satisfied that all your girls are safe. Seems like I just add to the list of gals I feel protective of. Now I have Bailey added to the list. You do what you can to prep them all... but in the end I still worry about them out in the world not under my wing.

    1. It doesn't help much that you can't read a news web page without running across lurid stories about abductions and murders of women. What the hell, is the country full of people who had bad mothers, or what? The hardest thing about keeping my daughter alert is that she really, in her heart, doesn't believe it could happen to her. All her life she's heard her old man inveigh against first one danger and then another, and none of them have taken place. But that doesn't mean they won't happen tomorrow and you can't let your guard down. I feel an obligation to help any woman in distress and that's why I still stop and change tires by the road though my knees kill me when I have to do it. I sure as hell wouldn't hesitate for a second to ventilate some predator trying to grab a girl out of a mall parking lot. I'm just now sure how many other people there are out there who would help anymore. I know the guys who come by here would, but we are an aging minority as far as I can tell.
