[Ed: Our erstwhile contributor ‘Dr. Latebloomer’ now writes mostly for GATDaily, but we still like occasionally to steal and read her stuff (with permission). Here is a timely nugget relating to DRGO’s advocacy of COVID prevention as much as to the Second Amendment and responsible carry, first published there May 14, 2020.]
Remember my post from last week? About what a wasteland social media is now? Well I still think that, but I at least can get good material sometimes. Some discussions that I’ve seen float by my feed this week have led me to compile a list.
Use this list to stimulate your thought processes. Share it around. Come up with your own. This is just for fun – remember how we used to laugh at stuff?
So without further ado I present,
Dr LateBloomer’s Top Ten Ways that a Mask is like a Concealed-Carry Gun
10- People get really judgey about them.
9 – People who don’t like them are often full of misinformation.
8 – People who do like them can sometimes be overconfident in their ability to use one
7 – Both have the “potential” to protect yourself and others.
6 – Once donned, excess handling should be minimized. STOP TOUCHING IT!
5 – They should never be banned, but making them mandatory can be problematic.
4 – They are not magic talismans.
3 – Both “should” change they way you interact with others.
2 – They require careful, regular cleaning to maintain effectiveness.
And the number one reason that a mask is like a concealed-carry gun is . . .
1 – It is better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have it.
There you go. Discuss amongst yourselves.
Thank you, you’ve been a great audience.
Don’t forget to tip your waitress , , , oh wait, I forgot.
