Dan Cornils opened up his Facebook feed on Thursday and was disgusted. He happened to see someone's anti-gun comments. At that moment he decided he'd had enough. He dropped everything and posted his own rant -- this one on the pro-gun side.
Nevermind that he tells TheBlaze he was on the toilet at the time:
"I encourage my boy to play with guns. My oldest daughter wants to learn how to shoot my .45. My two eldest daughters had a huge Nerf gun battle at their Christian youth group. My boy shoots at me with his cap gun and I pretend to die," it begins.
He was far from done.
"One of my daughters absolutely loves animals and wants to be a veterinarian... And wants to go hunting even though I've never had the opportunity. My other daughter is in karate and is starting weapons training next week. I have a loaded handgun in my house and my kids have never touched it."
Still not done.
"My kids play Call of Duty, Assassins Creed and Black Ops. We don't live in a dangerous neighborhood and I don't do much recreational shooting. I own guns because it's my right. My kids can learn to handle weapons because I said so. My girls can hunt if they want to and my boy can blow up his army guys and I'll play along. If you feel guns are dangerous then I encourage you to not own one."
It ends with a parting shot.
"But don't DARE force your sterilized, sissified, arrogant and close minded gun control dreams on me. Keep your interpretations and fears in your living room and I'll keep my gun under my jacket."
Cornils is the father of three girls and a boy. They're beautiful children. How do I know? Because their my nieces and nephew -- Dan is my brother-in-law. And when I saw his rant, I just couldn't not share it.
I thought you might have the same urge, too.
