Driving home the other day, I passed one of those places with little rental storage units, a row of metal sheds. The sign on the street advertised "Gun Safes." It just struck me as odd. Wickipedia claims "An oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines two normally contradictory terms." I'm not sure this is a figure of speech, but to me it is definitely contradictory! But if you need to keep a gun safe, there are places just for such a cause! Guns and safety oppose each other in my opinion. My right to bare arms means I can wear sleeveless shirts and I'm happy living on the Pacifist Coast.


  1. I still think you are insulting me when you call me that! ;-)

  2. I'll wear that! Pacifist Coaster number two, right here.

  3. Ha, ha, Glen. You are not an oxymoron. Nor any kind of moron. Nor a snollygoster. More of a birkie.
