I was listening to Dr Laura on Sirius Radio last night. The last caller before I hopped out of my car was some broad who was complaining that her husband spent $2,000 on an assault rifle.
DL: is money an isue for you?
DL: then I don’t see a problem. He is your husband, not your son. He doesn’t need to get your permission to defend his home.
Wife: …but we don’t really need an assault rifle.
Then DR Laura goes off on her teaching about the second amendment and the natural behavior of real men to defend their families and a little bit about the country going down hill fast and driving more men to buy guns to defend their families.
If I were her I would have pointed out that if the man had bought one last year it would have cost him half as much. hiw real sin was going without one for so long.
But deep down the woman was really pissed that she couldn’t spend that money on “girl things” like expensive handbags, or new furniture. She said she was upset because her husband didn’t consult her. But he already knew what she was going to say. So he “manned up” and risked her displeasure to do the right thing for his family.
