Share Your World — Guns and Hiccups

Is it Monday already? Yes it is. And that means it’s time for Melanie’s Share Your World.

Guns? Are you pro or con? Explain your point of view.

I believe Americans have a constitutional right to own and bear arms. But I don’t see any reason why any civilian needs to own a high capacity, military style, semiautomatic assault rifle. I also support common sense gun laws. I also support gun buyback programs. And I oppose open and concealed carry. I don’t buy the NRA’s bullshit that only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun.

How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?

Sorry children, but I don’t think anyone younger than 18 should be allowed to vote for anything other than student council positions or for competitors on “The Voice” or “American Idol.” 

What’s your cure for hiccups?

Hold your breath until you stop hiccuping or die, whichever comes first.

What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?

When I spent a week in Barrow, Alaska. It was very dark and very, very cold.

If you would like, share a story, a photo or some thoughts on you may be thankful for this week!

I am thankful this week for…. Well, I pass. Check back with me next week.

    Actually, I’ve come around to thinking that if there are 16 year olds who WANT to vote, they should. They can’t be any more stupid that the “adults” in the country.

    Thanks Fandango for Sharing Your World! You made some very valid points with this. It’s always a pleasure to read, and yeah, I’ll be checking back, next week, to see what might have cropped up on your ‘thankful-o-meter’ 😉

    A bit drastic on the hiccups cure, but I guess technically it would stop them either way. LOL

    Defeating hiccups involves holding one’s breath, but that’s not all… one has to take a very-very deep breath and hold it “hard enough” to push down on the stomach solidly.

    It always worked for me. But I haven’t had hiccups for years.
