As we country bumpkin Canadians like to say:
You can't hunt moose with a handgun, and you can't hunt prairie chicken with an AK47... so why own either ?

I own a gun because I value my life enough to protect it to the fullest extent possible when confronted with any situation. I also own a gun because I value the lives of those around me enough to protect them.
If you are against protecting yourself and your family, that is a strong, negative statement of the kind of person you are.
There are many ways to defend yourself without the need of a gun. Only weaklings and people who know nothing about self defense think I have to have a gun to protect myself.

Screw your gun control, damn right I will close my ears off to the suggestions. Been dealing with encroachment on my gun rights since I was 8, and I am sick of it. Screw your gun control. I own many guns, only one has shot another person, he was stupid enough to push his way into my apartment with a kitchen knife, and not leave when ordered. Crackhead had a fun time getting them pellets out that night I bet.
I could say the same about mental illness and gun grabber advocates. They are mentally ill, suffering from a phobia. Millions of guns around, the vast majority of scary "assault rifles" never harm another human being. Yet people want me to give mine up. Screw that.
And don't gimme any of that emotional for the children crap, the children are gonna grow up and be subjected to the encroachment nonsense. It is for the children I will fight the illogical gun grabbing crap, so they will have the right to defend themselves with the best tools available to do so.
