Buy a Gun, Piss Off a Liberal

Special to The Libertarian Enterprise

           Paying attention to the news and world events can often put one in a bad mood. I often wake up in a dreadful mood, one filled with a sense of doom, a sense our once free land is going down the toilet. Thursday was just such a day.
           I awoke to the news that Der Fuhrer Clinton was dragging a batch of "selected" Columbine students to the hallowed halls of Congress to "lobby". He wanted the congress-critters to listen to these students, and ban guns. Of course, he selected only those who would follow his lead. After all, the father who lost a girl to the murderers blamed politicians, not guns, and we hear nothing from him.
           But media bias is as old as the day is long, and we arenít going to waste electrons to bring that up. What I am talking about is my sure fire way of bringing light to the darkness of a day ruined by gun grabbers. I was pissed off most of the day, and then remembered I needed to get ball, powder and caps for my upcoming trip home to visit the folks.
           My father owns a farm, and I never pass up the opportunity to shoot from the trunk of my car. Nice to have the radio playing, the beer in the cooler right there, and no need to hike to the range. Also I enjoy showing off my collection, and practicing my fast draw is nice too.
           While wondering which kind of ball to get, and thinking "pyrodex or black powder", when I saw it, laying there in the glass case, a used Colt 1860 Army, smooth barrel, brass frame, and the best action I have felt in a revolver in a while. Sweet I thought, and then I saw the price tag, $130. Not a bad deal I decided, and I whipped out Happy Mister Plastic, and charged it. I went ahead and got a set of cavalry holsters for the wild west look, and was feeling real good.
           Now I already have a pair of 1860 Army revolvers, a Walker, a Wells Fargo, a LeMatt, and a single shot 50 caliber cannon. But one more is always welcome, I have enough love to share with more than one gun. I never really known that pleasant feeling that one gets from buying a new thing, until now.
           I felt so much better after buying that gun. I felt like I had done something so perfectly American. I had walked into a store, put down my money, and walked out with a gun. No wait, no paperwork, no ID needed. Just the cash to do it. Even took it out in a brown paper bag.
           I recommend to everyone to go out and buy a black powder piece or two, it feels so good to walk out a free human with a gun in hand. I recommend a Colt 1860 Army, a nicer shooting piece was never made. Certainly the Walker is just huge and the Wells Fargo is cute, but the 1860 Army is a damn fine shootin' iron. Find a book on the subject, get some .451 ball, some fffg powder, a 25 grain measure, a tin of #10 caps and some Bore-Butter. Then go out and enjoy your new pistol.
           Remember, every pistol purchased is one more that will piss off a Liberal. Why not take a picture of your new gun, along with a note that you didn't file a single form to buy it, or ask permission from anyone to get it. Send it to the White House, and let Bill Clinton have a bad day for a change.
