    My sister, who's lived in San Francisco for 40+ years has been calling me, I can't stand her attitude and have no desire to speak to her.
    After 11 calls, I thought I'll answer the phone to see what she wants.
    Went like this;
    Me... Hello?
    Sister...Hey Kid, it's me, your older sister.
    Me...OK, what do you want and how much is it going to cost me?
    Sister...Not going to cost you anything, when are you going to get rid of all your guns?
    Me...Not going to happen anytime soon!
    Sister...Well, I don't like the idea of my brother owning an arsenal of weapons, just get rid of them!
    Me...Repeat, it's not going to happen anytime soon and there is no way you have any authority to tell me what to do.
    Sister...I'M YOUR OLDER SISTER YOU WILL(click, I just hung up on her)

    What drives these people?

    Sounds like the typical sibling rivalry is still alive. :animlol:

    She's your sister. Tell her I love you but I'm a grown ass adult and can make my own decisions :2gun::50cal:

    Controllers gotta control those who allow them that power.

    Must be in their blood, learned mindset or genetics...

    Is sister a politician?

    I feel sorry for you that you have a liberal sister. Luckily my immediate family and in laws are republicans and most are conservatives

    No offense intended, but it seems you had a bad attitude starting that conversation in the first place!
    She's still your sister, liberal or not.

    Really. You read the OP and figure oceanwarrior's has the bad attitude?

    How the heck do you come up with that?

    Sheesh.

    Man it's family, you gotta keep the peace and do what you nice sister says, so send me all your guns and I will send your sis a thank you note. All will be well with the family again and I will have a bunch of guns, we will all be happy.

    Sell two, tell her you got rid of a couple just for her, and then buy two or three you'd rather have...

    My family on my dads side are pretty liberal. My dads one of those confused gun owning liberals, it's funny to watch him post pro-gun and pro-democrat stuff on FB, so conflicted. And he's retired now so don't even mention any thing about SS. Those repubs just want to take away everything I paid into my whole life!

    I keep telling him to come to the bright side, libertarianism!! Unfortunately the unions support the dems so that's never gonna happen.

    I assumed that there have been previous conversations that led to that situation.

    SC Tiger, I agree, but I was merely pointing out that the conversation was started pretty negatively.

    Send her a couple of old beater guns and send the local PD an anonymous notification hat she has a an arsenal in her house. See how she likes living like decent people do.

    It was going to cost him plenty, and he knew it.

    It was going to cost him his freedom. He knows his sister is controlling. Related or not, no reason to put up with it.

    That's tough. Family is one of the most important things in life. It sucks to have to tolerate a family member who is obviously an idiot, but that is what you have to do.
