Re: Non-PAW: one of your children molests another.

I honestly can't think of a better way to psychologically fuck up a child than to get rid of him shortly after he's been molested. I don't see the rationale over getting rid of the 9yr old any more than the 4yr old. Both are children, both are victims; the 9 yr old probably more so. Under the syste...

Oh, absolutely. If it were a situation where two children are "playing doctor" as opposed to actual sexual molestation, my response would definitely be different.

Re: Real-life short-term bug-out from Chez SMoAF

I just finished talking to the elderly neighbor's caregiver, who was leaving while I was out front doing some lawn work. Completely out of the blue, she thanked me for checking up on the neighbor and loaning her the lantern during the storm. This is more than 5 months after the fact. I told her that...

Re: Non-PAW: one of your children molests another.

About the best that I could come up with is that, as a parent in the hypothetical situation I posted, I'd turn the 9 year old over to the State, just to get him away from my daughter. SMoAF, I understand the protective instinct and appreciate the urge to protect your daughter at all costs but hones...

Re: Non-PAW: one of your children molests another.

First, let me give y'all a bit of background: The basic outline of the hypothetical is NOT something that came before me while I was at work. My job description doesn't involve crimes committed by juveniles, ever. Mrs SMoAF brought this scenario to me based on what I could best describe as the "wate...

Non-PAW: one of your children molests another.

This is a non-PAW scenario. Hypothetically, you're a single unemployed mother, with three children (11 year old boy, 9 year old boy, 4 year old girl). Your only source of income is from various government assistance programs, and child support for one of the children, which is spotty at best, so you...

Re: Why The Glock 19?

I like the Glock 19 because it's comfy to shoot and it always works. Back in the day, I used to teach a lot of women who had no experience with guns how to shoot. They generally liked the Glock 19 over the other variants I let them try. It's pretty easy to shoot a Glock 19 instinctively and still hi...

I have a hard time watching 9/11 footage. I almost start crying. It makes me feel very vulnerable. It brings back the anger for me. It was in the aftermath of 9/11 that I started to realize that maybe it was a good thing that I wasn't the kind of person that could be trusted with too much power. I ...

Re: noob gun owner - questions about safety glasses and guns

May I respectfully make a suggestion? Since you're not in a "it's time to buy a gun right now" phase, if it's possible, you might consider taking a vacation to a locality that is truly gun friendly to actually get some serious trigger time with guns you're interested in. There are a number of ways t...

The chimney's attached to a plugged fireplace. We're not going to rip out the entire thing, as it would take a lot of work for very little return.

Range review: Crickett .22LR single shot rifle

Awhile ago, I bought one of the Wal-Mart special Crickett .22lr single shot for the SMoAFlings. It's blued with the pink stock. Total cost out the door was under $105. The purpose was to work on teaching them how to shoot a long gun accurately as opposed to "spray and pray". I took it to the range y...
