I have enjoyed The Art of Manliness blog for a while, and particularly like the illustrations. I sort of figgered the other guys who read it were manly types… boy was I ever wrong.
So, today, Brett puts up a pretty good article detaining some of the best firearms for home defense. Get a load of some of the comments from readers:
Do you want to have blood on your hands if an idiot reads your blog buys a gun and then hurts somebody?. Everyday, 8 children and teens in the U.S. die of gun violence. Please be a bit more thoughtful next time… (Jimmy)
Must agree that this post left me feeling really uncomfortable. .. in many countries, such as mine, obtaining firearms like these is nearly impossible – Thank Goodness! (Drew)
I’m not sure I like this blog so much any more, please write less about the best way to kill or threaten people. (Tom)
The best weapon for home defense is a phone. If bad people try to get in: call the cops. (Pieter)
And these were just the first few responses. Luckily, the tone improved immensely as I got further down in the comments. Seems most of the girly comments were from Europe, too. It’s a damn shame what’s going to happen to these people when the dead rise to walk the earth… or the next time the Germans come over the border!
