I don't think all gun owners are gun nuts. Target and skeet shooting are fun.

I think people who, say, prohibit taking guns away from people who have restraining orders against them for making violent threats or prohibiting the ATF from tracking sales of the guns favored by cartels are nuts-- in other words congress (aka the NRA).

I have a question,, Why does the gubbmint officially classify, (on their orders for AR 15s), do they label those "PERSONAL PROTECTION ARMS",, yet they label them "ASSUALT WEAPONS" when concerning the public??

I have a question. Why do you think "the gubbmint" is one entity that functions with perfect consistency between departments? Who gives a flying fuk what they call them... idiots who don't know enough about guns to prevent scope-eye shouldn't be able to walk into Walmart and buy them... or any gun for that matter.


Why does the government hold News Conferences sometimes and Press Conferences other times? Why are they held in the Press Briefing Room? I think it is a conspiracy.

I'm a gun owner and gun nuts are those opposed to reasonable regulation, and,or own dozens of guns and its one of the say three main interests in their lives, can you say compensating for something?

If someone called you a climbing nut or a surfing nut you'd be like damn right! It's telling that people take offense at being called a gun nut because its a pretty weird thing to be.

Yet in an effort to remove those from citizens hands, they re-labeled them "assualt weapons"

THEY? Meaning a handful of idiots who happened to get elected? THEY are the government?

See, SANE people (not gun nuts) understand "the government" is made up of millions and millions of people. Gun nuts think "the government" is some entity that is coming for their guns.

the FET,, many will call you a gun nut too.

Nope, fet is a gun owner. HUGE difference. One that you are either too blind to see or choose to ignore.

So its LOOKS is it? Well in this case looks can kill, but really.... if we pass another assault weapons ban?

STOP MAKING (and buying) WEAPONS BASED UPON WANNABEE APPEARANCE.

I mean if its as you say and these things are merely cosmetic? STOP WEARING MAKEUP.

But if STILL you want your Rambo Wannabee Look Alike Cosmetic Weaponry... ?

I'm laughing at you.

BwaHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Do you have research,, or is that just an out of-yer-azz opinion..?

It is well documented in this thread.

There are plenty of gun OWNERS voicing their opinions who don't appear to be nuts... michaeld, hillrat, norton, etc.

Anyone who thinks "the government" is coming after their guns... or refuses to move to a state because they can't have the mag capacity they imagine they need... or thinks anyone and everyone should be able to walk into Walmart and pick up a device capable of slaughtering dozens of people in minutes, regardless of competence or knowledge about gun safety... etc... is a gun nut.

A Gun Nut is someone who opposes any gun control legislation on the basis that it wouldn’t prevent all gun crime, yet believes that one guard with a pistol will be guaranteed to run across an entire school campus and successfully tackle an intruder with an assault rifle before they fire a single shot.

A Gun Nut is someone who spends hundreds of dollars and many hours working on tiny improvements to the accuracy of his weapon but opposes spending five minutes and $20 on background checks that would reduce the chances of ever needing that weapon.

A Gun Nut is someone who believes that there are actual threats to his person that only a 30 shot semi-automatic rifle can protect against.

We would go a long way in solving this problem if gun sellers became at least partly responsible for what their sold weapons ended up doing, much in the same way that if you sell drinks to an obviously intoxicated individual in some bar you may become at least partly libel for their actions. In California Bar owners have become libel in such cases.

Take the responsibility, at least in part, away from the government and put it on the shoulders of gun sellers. I can't even purchase a cell phone contract without having a credit check. With technology today background checks are remarkably simple and quick.

I also have to say that freedom is largely a function of population. The founding vision for this country never could have anticipated the contemporary density of population we enjoy.

Because of this there are weapons that are forbidden by the government and rightly so. The question IMO is simply where do we draw the line as we have all already agreed there are some weapons no individual citizen has the right to carry or even own.

The only reloading kit endored by Big Sis.



10. Rainbow Brite Ammo Loader Kit – Another wonder from GlamGuns.com, this kit ($243.95) contains streamers, glitter and confetti that can be added to a gun chamber, shooting out “a trail of sparkling love with every shot.”

If only he'd been armed and trained in firearm usage, this might have been prevented:

Dumb and Dumber are out-dumbing themselves today

Hey now, I've never called YOU names.




Clearly the news is in it with the government. The more people that disagree with you, the bigger the conspiracy... and the more guns you need. Genius! Resistance is futile.

Gun owners should be able to shoot their ARs or bushmasters at the range like they do.

A Gun Nut is someone who believes their right to punch holes in paper is superior to a kid's right to attend school without being murdered.

There was never any doubt... just having a little self-deprecating fun.

Glad to see more sane people (TE) speaking up.
