Comparison Between Cameras and Rifles
I've debated posting this one for a long time as it seems that every time I think about posting this one, some national tragedy occurs that brings weapons of all kinds into the spotlight again. As we're coming up on the anniversary of my enlistment/EAS I figure now is as good a time as any to post this.
This is going to be a bit of an odd post. As most of my followers know I did spend four years in the United States Marine Corps. While I was enlisted my Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) was a cook Food Service Specialist (don't we feel special???). As everyone knows about the USMC however, every Marine is considered a rifleman. We learn it in bootcamp, and have to qualify every year that we stay in.
Now, just to get this thought out of the way. I am not pro-gun. I am not anti-gun. I'm for the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms, but I do not believe that every American should own a gun. What I am for however is safe ownership of guns. Locking them up when there are children in the house, making sure that everyone (adult and child) is familiar with gun safety and gun safety rules. Treat every weapon as if it were loaded, never point at anything you do not intend to shoot, etc.
There was a lot that I learned on the range that I feel pertains to using a camera as well. Here are some of mine:
This post again, is not necessarily to be tongue in cheek or to advocate, or not advocate the use of firearms. This is merely to present the idea that a lot of the things that we learn in life can be translated into other areas of our lives.
