As far as logical arguements goes, banning all guns is impossible, yet continues to surface in this thread quite frequently.


there is only ONE person calling for banning ALL guns

and that is Joe Hedge

so let us not make the mistake of assuming that ALL people who would like to see some reasonable restrictions are calling to ban ALL guns, only one person here doing that

I don't get a lot of what Ron A. says here.

But there's no denying that he is a badass climber.

To the haters of guns, why do you insist on calling all enthusiasts gun nuts? Insulting an opponent is probably the worst way to validate anything you say.

We tried talking nice. We asked for reasonable dialogue. We got glorification of all things GUN. And enough hyperbole to choke the devil.

I don't hate guns. I hate the motherphuckers who place them higher in value than children.



Oooooh so you shot a thousand round wad. How long does it take to wash the sperm stains out of your combat thong?

Really?

And do you think most responsible gun owners like seeing dead kids?

Norton, keeping them out of the hands of bad people is truly a problem. Keeping them out of law abiding citizens hands is nowhere near a realistic solution. Now you see how funny the anti gun argument s appear.

Hmmm, can this really be healthy way to raise a family?

sure it is!

the more our children handle weapons, the better they are are shooting them and being able to protect themselves

plus, let's face it, the family that shoots together stays together

shooting is just all around good fun

Bob, the term "gun nut" is limited to those who refuse to consider ANY gun control measures... before they even hear the proposals.

A "gun nut" is someone who refuses to acknowledge that, without high capacity magazines and semi-autos, tragedies like Sandy Hook and Aurora WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE.

A "gun nut" is someone who thinks Christopher Krumm killed his dad because Casper College is a gun-free zone... completely ignoring the fact that if Christopher had a gun the damage would have been much worse regardless of how many students were carrying.

A "gun nut" is someone who casually discusses the "best weapon" for "the job" of killing dozens of children in a school.

A "gun nut" is someone who fails to acknowledge guns have EVERYTHING to do with the fact that the US has 1/3 the violent crime rate of the UK, but a 3.5 times HIGHER murder rate.

A "gun nut" is someone who mentions Nazis and protection from a tyrannical government every time anyone mentions anything about federal firearms regulations.

A "gun nut" is someone who thinks gun control measures are equivalent to the government coming for your guns.

A "gun nut" is someone who sees nothing wrong with the fact that dealers ARE NOT REQUIRED to report lost or stolen firearms during interstate shipments.

etc.

I've been shooting since I was 6 years old (over 30 years now) and enjoy it. Last camping trip my gf shot a gun for the first time in her life. A little stiff, even with my grandpa's old single shot .22, but she liked it.

Most of us agree with you.

We just want to discuss exactly what things are included when you say "them"

I hear ya, Norton. Although I don't think your quote was mine.

I took the 4 year old out to watch us shoot, no shooting for him yet. I did buy him a set of ears though so he could watch Mom tear in to a target. I just bought a Henry Arms AR-7 (.22LR) that will probably be his first weapon when he comes of age.

Cool rifle!

Ricky,
Blue isn't your worry.
Nor is the 99.5% of our armed society. Actually they are on your side.

It's the sub 0.5% of society that are just bad people that are your worry. Heck, they could even build their own zip gun (instructions on line) and off us all.

Now go give Blue a hug and thank him for having ur back ;)

^ total bullsh#t

blurring is just the kind of idiot who is likely to shoot someone over a misunderstanding... whether it is some teenager taking a shortcut across his property or a Mexican playing loud music in the parking lot.

Gee, too bad he didn't use a zip gun, then he could have done some real damage.

I love talking about and shooting guns!


Wasn't it Crosby, Still, and Nash who sang "Teach your children well"?
