I’m not a monster

Being a gun owner doesn’t make me crazy. It doesn’t make me a monster. It doesn’t mean that I don’t value life or that I don’t hurt when I see lives taken. I own guns and I carry a gun because I value life so much that I want to protect it.

As a mother, my heart aches for parents who experience the loss of a child. I don’t think any mother or father — conservative, democrat, third party, or no party — wants to feel the pain of losing a child. As soon as that baby is put into our arms or that child comes into our homes, we feel the ever present need to protect that sacred life.

Protecting the lives of my children is why I chose to carry and why I support the Second Amendment. I think every parent should have the resources and opportunity to protect their family.
