Not a responsible parent...

Or gun owner?

There are some people I really don’t talk about, mostly because all they want is attention. Rosie O’Donnell is one of those people. It is really too emotionally draining to spend a lot of energy on her. However, this crosses the line.

I used to baby-sit for a gun owning family. They were all in favor of gun rights, but they didn’t want their boys to play with “gun toys.” So, the boys had these alligators that they pointed at each other while saying, “Bang!” (Defeated the purpose.)

Now, is it just me, or does the young Miss O’Donnell have an unusually substantial amount of ammo for the four-year-old daughter of an anti-gun activist? Furthermore, if the above mentioned boys were caught (and I seriously doubt they knew a gun was in the house) with their father’s ammo, they’d be grounded until Christ’s return.

Let’s just ignore how inconsistent, if not hypocritical, it is for Ms. O’Donnell to own the type of weapon it would take for that ammo. But a responsible parent does not let their children play with guns and ammo PERIOD END OF DISCUSSION.

I am all in favor of gun ownership. And this irresponsible behavior on the part of the O’Donnell household makes responsible gun owners look bad. Responsible gun owners teach their children that guns are dangerous tools and are not toys to be played with.

And, let’s say the young Miss O’Donnell really did want to dress up like a soldier. Cool. Good for her. But there are other ways for a young person to experience aspects of military life, such as civil air patrol or Jr. ROTC. Ms. O’Donnell should really know better then to condone such attitudes as playing with guns and she should be educated about real ways how her children can experience the military or honor soldiers.

    Rosie O'Donnell is a sick, sick woman. Do you remember when she took Tom Selleck apart on her show for his gun-ownership positions? I'm thinking maybe she's coming unhinged.

    You know, that year, my roommate and I scheduled our classes around Rosie's show. And that stopped right after she tore apart Tom. And you're right, she's either loosing it, or is a little too self important for her own good.
