Dadd dads against daughters dating shotgun
He was likely being facetious and, more to the point, being facetious in 2008, back when the urge to protect teen girls felt somehow noble or, barring that, a lot more defensible.

I don't think anyone who doesn't have children can really understand.
It's not that fathers really hate those young men, or even assume that they're bad people.
""It was a few days before my sister's wedding, so my dad had shaved the massive beard that he usually had for the occasion.

They certainly don’t need to feel that fear when attempting to do something as innocuous and normal as taking a girl out on a date.It's a reaction out of desperation from a concerned parent.You may not like it, but if you have daughters of your own, odds are you'll feel exactly the same way.A gubernatorial candidate in Georgia has come under fire for a political ad that shows him threatening a daughter’s prospective date with a shotgun.

As recently as 2008, country singer Rodney Atkins had a chart-topping hit with “Cleaning This Gun (Come On In, Boy)” that featured the refrain “Hey, y’all, run along and have some fun / I’ll see you when you get back / Bet I’ll be up all night / Still cleanin’ this gun.” Atkins, whose first marriage broke up after his wife called the police on him, has two sons.
