Quote of the Day

There’s a lesson here. If anyone is willing to raise a hand to you in a relationship, you should assume that they will kill you if they get a chance to. The only acceptable reason to strike another person is self defense. That goes double if you are in a relationship with them. A person who will hit you in a relationship has already demonstrated that they don’t respect you. Get out, get away, and never come back. You are worth more than that.

Sean over at An NC Gun Blog.  He makes an excellent point about domestic violence.  The first part of dealing with an abusive partner is to get them out of your life.  The next part is to protect yourself. No person has the right to raise a hand to another except to defend, and no person has a responsibility to take a beating or worse because they care about the attacker.

Thanks for the link DB.

Few things set my off as bad as domestic violence. I want to be safe inside my own home and I assume everyone else does to. The thought of an enemy living inside my home, making my home unsafe, is the worst sort of violation.
