It's his way of gracefully supporting Hilliary and exiting the race in a style that only an Honorable man would do. We all know that words are more dangerous than stones, so at least he's not throwing stones at the American public.

It's one thing turning WMD's on the makers of them, but the animals don't deserve that. Hunting animals with any kind of hand gun should be outlawed. I did not know about this.

What do the animals deserve?
I am being totally serious.
What is okay for hunting in your opinion?

Have you ever seen a deer herd after a hunting ban... I have; it was heartbreaking, they strip the wilderness of any viable food, they procreate like crazy, once they cant get enough nutrients, their body gets weaker making them susceptible to disease.

So with no hunting they get to look forward to starvation, or some disease that just might make starvation look like a swell way to go.

This is totally ignoring the impact they have on any people living in the area as well, they rapidly become a pest species.

I don't think you have a clue how powerful most of the handguns used for hunting are,a hot loaded 10mm,.357 magnum,.41 magnum,.44 magnum will take down a deer just as easily as rifle,quicker in some cases.

Can you shoot 350 yrds like we do in the west with those weapons?

Sorry, this is just shocking to me. My husband is an avid hunter (before disabiliy) and my brother in law is a master hunter with the bow.

I suppose hand guns would be ok if you are up close. But in the real world of hunting, that is rare.

Well, I've never heard of long range shotguns.

I have heard of long range pistol shooting.

So if it's based on range, shotguns would be banned?

I have deer walk directly under my tree stand every season, exactly 12 feet below me.
Like I said earlier in the thread, do a Google search on handgun hunting, there are a lot of handgun hunters out there and they are successful.

Sounds a lot like us humans, except we're about 10,000 times worse than deer.

But try hitting a flying pheasant or duck with a pistol, it isn't just range.

Anyone who didn't know this was cooking up in his brainpan was smoking their own special blend of denial anyhow.

I shot a flying wild turkey with a 6 barrel Ruger Blackhawk in .357 Magnum.
I read a story written by Teddy Roosevelt, where he related about watching a German hunter in Africa shooting flying waterfowl with a rifle to sharpen his shooting skills.
It is all about the person doing the hunting.
Oh, and pheasants are the easier of the lot. They tend to go nearly straight up when flushed, then have a slight pause when they transition to level flight.

Maybe clarify the prerequisites beforehand?

Have you ever hit a flying pheasant at 350 yards with a shotgun?

That would require more skill than with a pistol at the same range.

Oh, I guess I am talking to small game hunters. My guys hunt elk, moose, bear in WA and ID, and the smaller game. Just never saw them hunt with pistols.

The president, nor congress can make laws that would, by default, make American citizens criminals.

So you cannot ban guns.

You cannot even separate and classify some as "assault" weapons. Because all weapons, all large rocks, could be used to "assault' someone.

So you cannot ban guns.

You can hate guns, you can be afraid of guns, you can make your home a gun-free zone if you wish.

But you cannot ban guns.

I know several people who hunt with handguns. Boar, especially. I've hunted boar with a handgun...I wouldn't recommend hunting boar with anything smaller than a .44 magnum...I hunted with a .357 magnum, and it took far more shots than it should have.

It depends upon the handgun, and the animal being hunted.
