Dads Gun pic on Twitter offends anti gunners

I don't do any social media. I doubt it's very smart posting this pic,
But just another example of how some people can't see the moment of humor where a dad gets his point across about his daughter..an age old philosophy...looks like a 1911 at least..

All fathers should be protective of their daughters.

Young men can be pigs.

I have twin daughters. I cannot tell you how many times I've been told "better get a shotgun for when they get older." People get their feelings hurt WAY too easy these days. And no, I don't believe we as gun owners need to bend to these clowns. How many "joke" photos do they make that we find disgusting but say nothing about?

Nothing wrong with that picture. From an art perspective, it captures the internal struggles of a father who cares about his daughter. I think even liberal dads secretly identify with that... they just can't admit it.

Cool to know if your daughter has any self agency you’ll shoot her boyfriend.
What is "self agency"? Is that rightspeak for getting knocked up on prom night?

My agreement with my daughter when she turned 14 was that I would not post any pictures involving her on the internet without her express consent. These kids have to live in a world where the internet never forgets, whereas I have the luxury of having none of my awkward adolescence instantly available at the search of Google. I will probably do the same thing when my son turns 14.

As a member of DADD (Dads against daughters dating), I can relate and laugh out loud when seeing that picture. Of course, I will have to relent, at some point, to letting my daughter date (currently age 12). But I have been raising her correctly since she was born. She has the manners of a Southern girl with the street smarts of a New Yorker.

All the father is saying is: Have my daughter home ON TIME.

Dang, no one takes a piece of humor any more.

Kinda like: I own 40 acres, a backhoe and a 12 gauge - don't mess with my daughter!!!

A hundred bucks says the pistol was empty!!!

The LIBS are winning - even on our firearm forum!!!

Agreed and the fatherís finger was not even on the trigger. I personally blame the Obama administration for kicking off this anti-gun hysteria. Imagine what the greatest generation would think of this PC BS.

My wife & I planned it perfectly. We had three boys, BEFORE our daughter. So if you're going to date her, you BETTER have a Crown Vic/Grand Marquis, at a minimum... so the three "chaperones" can fill up the BACK seat.

Father:
Was it you that did the pushin
left the stains upon the cushion
foot prints on the dashboard upside down...

Was it you you sly woodpecker
that got into my daughter Rebecca
if it was you you better leave this town...



Boyfriend:
Yes was I that did the pushin
left the stains upon the cushion
foot prints on the dashboard upside down...

But since I got into you're daughter
I've had trouble passin water
so I guess we're even all around...

My son’s are 26 and 24, and my daughter’s 12. All I’m going to say is that the boys she brings home better have thick skin, or it’s going to be really tough to date my daughter. There will be no slack cut, and they will be well aware I own and know how to use firearms.

Looks like a Wilson Combat Compact, with VZ grips.

It’s Jay Feeley famous Retired NFL kicker. He made the now-mandatory apology, and said not loaded, no mag. It appears uncocked. I think a shotgun would have been more appropriate, given the context.

I'll play a little devil's advocate here! And I have two daughters and a son. How do parents of boys feel when even jokingly, a parent of a girl he's dating does this! Even as a joke, it's still a joke about harming a teenager and your son! How does that make you feel as the parent of said boy?

I'm actually curious since my son is the youngest of the three kiddos I have. As the Dad to daughters, I say this a joke and in good fun and I'd probably do the same! As a Dad of a son, I kind of switch my thinking to the opposite and just think this is not cool even to joke about posing with my son and joking about harming him!

Boys kind of get the shaft in my thinking sometimes. There are some horrible teenage girls out there that can and will do a lot more than a boy would ever dream of doing while dating at this age.

Oh, people have lost their senses of humor. There is nothing wrong with that picture. But the real problem with prom, etc., is alcohol and automobiles. I sat down alone with my daughter's prom date and explained that he would under no circumstances drive a car with her in it after ingesting so much as a single drop of alcohol. He understood it was not a joke. Everything went fine.

I'd tell my son that he'd better behave himself or suffer the consequences.

People say, "Oh, they're old enough to make their own decisions!" Then when the young'uns make bad decisions, those same people cry, "They just kids. They don't know any better and made a mistake." That include teenage pregnancy, DUI, GTA, robbery, and a host of other things. You can't have it both ways.

I agree, as pretty much everyone knows the term "shotgun wedding". By displaying a handgun instead it was too easy to miss the joke.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Dad gots a nice choice for a firearm, nothing his daughter should be embarrassed about. Now that white belt dad is wearing? Only retired old farts at assisted living facilities over 85 years old wear white belts. No?
