This blog went silent suddenly. Many know that the general “gun” blogosphere has become a much quieter place. Many long standing blogs have shuttered. However, my reasons for silence were of a far more personal nature.
A few months ago, I found myself in beginning of a contentious divorce. On top of that consuming the majority of my free time and mental energy, I also felt it best to keep to a minimum in regards to blogging.
Furthermore, at one point my ex made a statement regarding the inadequacy of the storage of the firearms, and additional wording that made me uncomfortable. I was already finding myself accused of things that I believe to have no basis.
I made a decision to remove all firearms from my possession. Purchased a gun locker, placed them all inside, put into storage. And turned over the keys to a 3rd party. Thus eliminating any means of access to said firearms. One can discuss the merits of legality, marital property, access rights, etc. However, I felt I’d much rather face any claim of making marital property inaccessible to one of the owning parties rather than face false claims of threatening use of firearms.
By locking the property up until the divorce proceedings are completed, and removing my access through a 3rd party. I eliminated any the possibility of false allegations being made against me that could have serious ramifications.
It is a very unhappy and sad situation. And I share this, because I am sure many other gun owners sadly find themselves in similar circumstances.
Under the circumstances, my posting shall continue to be sporadic. My apologies. But right now my focus is on my children and the life issues at hand.
