Any of you NRAdvocates been around many six year olds for any length of time? Something tells me No.
Ron how old were you when you bonded with your dad?
My Grandfather was a consummate outdoorsman. He taught us all gun safety after we reached 12 years old when he thought maturity had reached a point of responsibility. Should Nascar promote driver's ed classes in elementary school? Is it actually relevant to the young mind?

I was about 4 when a deer came out of the woods surrounding our house and my dad went and grabbed his .257 Roberts, made sure it was unloaded, and leveled it on the living room window sill.
After a bit he had me take a look taking care to teach me the 2nd discipline.

In the next years we started with archery and .22s

By the time I was 13 I was ranked higher than my camp counselor "instructor".

Thanks dad.

Things are slowly coming back. Though the old prices will likely never be seen again.

The $15 cartons of high end .22s are going for $40 and rationed, but there are lots on the shelf at Get Some.





I wonder what all you anti-gunners think of Ahmed Ozalp.

Writing in the Princeton University Alumni Weekly he said, "I have always been amused by America's fascination with the right to bear arms, dismissing it as national zealotry."

Then something happened back home,... in Cairo.
After the police abandoned the streets residents banded together in neighborhood militias arming themselves with whatever they could.
Ozalp armed himself with a golf club and his friend with a baseball bat.

His turnaround was blatant in the publication. Referring to the right to bear arms that he called national zealotry he then wrote, " After living through the necessity of forming a neighborhood militia, I now recognize the protection it affords."

America is literally Egypt/Iraq/Syria and about to devolve into sectarian violence as soon as our oppressive dictator is overthrown and it is not ironic at all that statistically the fact that you own a gun actually makes it MORE likely that you'll be killed by one.

(I have no problem with gun ownership, just people who think it's the only thing "protecting their rights.")

just like you,they never even heard of him

but more importantly, is your definition of an "anti gunner" someone who supports the extreme idea of thinking that convicted felons ought to be background checked BEFORE buying an AK at a gun show?

THAT was the attempt of the Federal Legislation after the eight year olds were murdered, Ron

are YOU an "anti gunner" also Ron, because you don't have a problem with background checks?

or are you just confused about what you believe, but just irrationally and emotionally oppose any damn attempt to lessen the likely hood of future slaughters?

Yeah hedge I guess you are right. It was crazy to compare our peaceful and civilized corner of the world to Egypt. Here we would never have major cities go bankrupt leaving citizens to rely on cops who only respond to major crimes (taking 58 minutes to do so). And we always have the federal government to back up the cops. They would never be so fiscally irresponsible.

pfffft, silly me.

I was in awe at the Egyptian protests... If only the sheeple that remain in this failed country could muster the same resolve and get off their asses...

Could you imagine in any major American city what would happen if 10+ million people showed up to protest this failed regime?

But alas, they have not run out of Bread nor Circus yet. Soon perhaps.

By TGT's logic didn't Republicans blow up the World Trade Center and Democrats build the Freedom Tower? Goes to show what kind of conclusions you will draw when you are only capable of making sense of macro images.

Why do your Republicans keep on voting to fund food stamps, WELFARE, TGT?

Your Repubs have complete control of the House for three years now, the FUNDING branch

And they keep voting for FOOD STAMPS and WELFARE

that HAS to piss you off

Hey Toker,

wasn't Gary Johnson the Libertarian candidate last year?

He was my state of New Mexico's governor some years ago.
You are a Libertarian you say?

I assume you voted for Johnson?
