Sometimes, I am completely baffled at how some individuals function in the outside world. Recently, our community has been inundated with car break-ins. While this has always been an issue, the difference is that a good amount of the cars violated have had guns in them. Yes, my friends, people leaving their guns in their unlocked cars. Let that sink in for a moment. Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of having a gun? I mean, if someone breaks into your home, do you say, “Can you hold on a moment? I left my gun in the car.” But then I suppose the thief would respond, “That’s not necessary because I just stole the gun that was in your car.” I suppose that they could have more than one gun, but then they probably misplaced their “home” gun while leaving their “car” gun in their unlocked car. Brilliant.
I have been guilty of leaving my car unlocked. It is easy to get distracted, but I never leave anything of value in it. Our public officials have been urging people to check their cars before the light of day evaporates. Seriously, I have enough issues trying to keep up with where I put my phone. Can’t even imagine the whole gun ordeal.
It leaves me a little uneasy. Are these the same people that we have to remind not to eat Tide pods? Look, I am not bashing gun owners, but I am saying that if you have one, be responsible. It isn’t an ownership that should be taken lightly. Some people are their own worst enemies.
Oh, and don’t even get me started on the whole “it’s too hot for…” reminders. It is literally hotter than Death Valley and there are still incredibly stupid people that will leave their pets outside, take them on long walks, or perhaps, leave them in a hot car. I. Can’t. Even. I imagine you now understand my need to disconnect from human interaction. It’s too much stupidity running rampant. It’s a disease with, apparently, no cure. Peace out. I will be over here reading because that is the only way to escape.
