Given the climate in NJ, it isn’t at ALL surprising that the child isn’t familiar with guns. Have you looked into trying to get a CCP there? The process is well beyond onerous.
May Issue to Residents and Non-Residents
Issuance of the permit is almost completely discretionary, and New Jersey courts have upheld the policy of strictly limiting permits “to persons pecifically employed in security work . . . and to others who can establish an urgent necessity for carrying guns for self-protection.”
Application is made to the police chief where the applicant resides or to the Superintendent of State Police if the community does not have a police chief or if the applicant is a nonresident. The licensing authority makes a recommendation to a judge of the Superior Court who grants or denies the permit. The judge may also place restrictions on the permit.
The applicant must meet the requirements of the Permit to Purchase and FID, provide personal information, be fingerprinted, prove his familiarity with the use of handguns, have three reputable people knowing the person for at least three years and have a “justifiable need to carry a handgun.”
A description, including serial number, of every handgun which the applicant intends to carry must be provided. Only one permit need be obtained for all such handguns.

“Sissy” is an oldy but still a goody. No point reinventing the wheel when the old one works just fine!

No, that’s Kate and William and Queen Elizabeth in the pic. We’re not talking about the Obamas, who, since you brought it up, have dwarfed the budget of the royal family.
Obama cost more on one trip to the islands than the Brits pay in a year for the Royals.

She wised up though. Isn’t that better than burying her head in the sand and continuing down the same path because she was unable to admit she was wrong?
That’s the same sort of attitude that condemns former abortion clinic workers who want nothing more than a different job, but are afraid of the consequences of getting out.

Talk about a display of ignorance. I’m from a small town in ID very similar to Dietrich-other end of the state, though we competed against each other in state tourneys. There was exactly one black family and one fillipino family in school while I was there, K-12. They were treated no differently than anyone else.
Race is only an issue through the eyes of the racist; I’d suggest you take a close look in the mirror, pal.

It’s not what you say, it’s who you are.

You know it’s a trainwreck when the dictionary definitions come out.

You have had blessings in your life that other have not had, and I am happy for you, that you have been so blessed. Should you find yourself trying to work and raise children, I hope you find more compassion shown to you than you have displayed here. Husbands are not guaranteed for life, and there are more than a few women trying to pick up the pieces following an unexpected death.
However, for you to advocate the abortion of children who will grow up in what you deem to be less than perfect circumstances is absolutely reprehensible, and for you to preach it to others, even more so, especially while purporting to espouse Christian principles.
Life is a blessing regardless of the circumstances, and it is not ours to take. Period.
You know nothing about me. What blessings are you claiming I've had? I don't advocate any abortion and I oppose all abortion. You fundamentally misunderstood my comment.
Of course unexpected deaths happen, but that changes nothing I've said.

It’s your right to choose, unless you choose life.
Then they want to dictate your choice of medical care…schooling…etc.

Would you have the same stance were the issue infanticide and not abortion?
The crime is the same, only the location has changed.
If you will not defend them now, why bother defending them later?

Not trying to be pedantic, but that’s not quite accurate.
As a fallen angel, Satan knows that man is made in the image of God, and that as glorified (possessed of an eternal soul) animals who are the only creation capable of working with God to create more eternal souls, human life is extraordinarily precious.
THAT is why he despises life and does everything possible to get us to destroy ourselves. By getting us to destroy ourselves, he accomplishes two ends: the destruction in effigy of God, and the acquisition of souls.
