This is insanely dumb, I agree with your 2nd post - people deserve to have weapons for defense. We all know that guns do not kill people, PEOPLE KILL
For example, let's go back to the stone age, when there was no weapons of any sort other than logs and rocks. How do you think people killed one
another back then? WITH LOGS AND ROCKS!
Unfortunately through out the history of man we have always had the ability to kill one another, and it will always be there until we evolve into a
more peaceful species, but I wouldn't hold my breath unfortunately waiting for that to happen.
I am very pro-gun. I've been shooting since I was about 6-7 years old, and guess what? I've learned gun safety growing up, how to properly use a
weapon in self defense, how to handle my gun(s) (clean them/take them apart), and at the top of list I've learned how to aim and hit my target. Why
should I not be allowed to have a gun for protection?
I do think that it would be good (not mandatory however) if they offered free instructor classes on proper gun use. In some places you may find a
free class, but most are couple $100 bucks for a few lessons, and it's a class, not individual attention. If they really want to stop some of the
mishaps with guns, then they should offer people the chance to go to a FREE range, with instructors there to help teach proper use of weapons for
I know I will follow my fathers footsteps and teach my children at a young age the proper way to use/handle a weapon. If you teach young, you can
instill in the child how sincere you are about safety. Safety is my #1 concern when shooting, as it should be for everyone.
When I'm at the range we all look out for one another, regardless if we know each other. That's just how it works. And guess what? There have
been 0 (ZERO!) accidents at my gun club & at my indoor range I go to.
Proper handling of weapons = less mishaps. Simple as that. Banning weapons will just mean uprising eventually if this spreads through the country
(which it never will, and if it does then martial law will be in place more than likely).
I hope all of you gun owners out there (which I hope is all of you) understand that since Obama has become president not only has it become harder to
buy guns, but ammo prices have gone up A LOT. A lot more people are refilling these days, in fact my family is thinking about doing it as well. The
only ammo you should really buy is hallow points for protection (which is what you'd keep in your gun at home, or at your place of business).
We need to fight this kind of stuff before it gets out of hand! There really should be a day or week out of the year dedicated to our freedom to own
firearms and there should be open/free shooting ranges and teachers for all ages to show how guns can protect.
The main issue among those who fight against us gun owners is that those who don't own a gun or know how to handle them, think people just get them
to kill people or rob a bank or something. Not everyone with a gun commits a crime! You all remember that guy who got arrested and his guns taken
from him because he got fired from work and supposedly the ex-bosses thought he may be a liability (although there was NO proof) so the cops busted
him? That really pissed me off, and I can see more things like that happening now...
Ahh sorry for the long post, but this stuff really urks me... we have a RIGHT to BARE ARMS, period. But I guess our rights don't matter anymore do
