Why all the yawns and groans? Got a cramp from looking down your nose?
I already knew that I wasn't going to change your mind. From your statements, it became obvious that there wasn't that much to change. Therefore,
you CAN'T be like me.
Wouldn't want me around kids? My children had their own rifles at age six, including my daughter, and could shoot skillfully and responsibly as soon
as they were capable of getting a good sight picture.
They grew up to be responsible young people who happened to be very familiar and very respectful of those tools.
Guns are deadly? Is that your justification?
So are cars, 16-ounce hammers, hair dryers, aircraft, power supplies, gas fireplaces, extension cords, swimming pools, screwdrivers, pain killers,
kitchen knives, alcohol, and chain saws.
Firearms have likewise saved millions of lives. Good lives.
Your snide remark about the superhero t-shirt is time-worn, especially since I already explained I have no illusions, nor do I wish for a repeat.
To emphasize your firm beliefs, I think it would be a great gesture if you'd stick a large sign in your front yard that states you are against all
firearms, and do not allow them in your house.
Thus, passers-by can be assured that yours is a firearm-free structure.
"Gun freaks" as you call them, really don't enjoy conversing with flaming pansies either, so that argument cuts both ways.
You may not return to the thread, but I assure you, as soon as I hit "reply," yours wasn't the last word on the topic.
Are you ever right about anything?
