Mouse Story

This is a little story I first posted on my previous blog.
In light of HR 1022, and in honor of BAG day, I re-post it here for y’alls enlightenment.

This turned up in one of the e-mail lists I subscribe to. Think about it. I don’t know who the original author is. If you do, please let me know so proper atribution can be made.
THE MOUSE STORY
A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. What food might this contain?” The mouse wondered- he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap. Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning. There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.” The mouse turned to the pig and told him, “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The pig sympathized, but said, “I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.” The mouse turned to the cow and said “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!” The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.” So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone. That very night a sound was heard throughout the house — like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital, and she returned home with a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient. But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer’s wife did not get well, she died. So many people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them. The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness. So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem, like those who own sporting weapons with military charactistics, or 50 caliber long range target rifles, or who want to be able to defend themselves and their families by carrying a firearm concealed, and think it doesn’t concern you, remember — when one class of gun owners is threatened, we are all at risk. We call that the “NATO DOCTRINE.” We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another to defend the RKBA at any and all costs. EACH OF US IS A VITAL THREAD IN ANOTHER PERSON’S TAPESTRY; OUR LIVES ARE WOVEN TOGETHER FOR A REASON. PROTECT THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND YOU PROTECT FREEDOM FOR ALL.
