Did you ever see a cart pull a horse?
Get real for crissakes. Children and Cops matter to me more than your right to protect yourself against things that go bump in the night. And btw
(statistically) chances are you will only kill your dog or blow your own wife's head off in the dark.
what does carts being pulled by horses have to do with guns?
Ok, get real about what? my experience or yours?
hmmm, i admit i don't follow you because at one point, (if human) we were all children and last i checked (at least common acceptance says) all cops
are humans too, although some still act like children today ... so, what is your point there?
Me? i prefer focusing on the animals (they do it for me) ... humans be damned (as we are from birth) --> more often than not, humans turn out to be a
waste of effort, anyway.
Thanks for assuring me that you are just one more reason why i NEED my protection ... clearly, you aren't anyone i could count on and considering the
EMTs beat the cops arrival, well, can't really count on them, either.
Actually, history (personal history that is) has only shown that i am a responsible, alert and well trained owner. the only person i've shot
(intentionally without killing) was an armed intruder ... and i'd do it again in heartbeat.
btw, i am the female and my male mate was directly in the line of fire ... had the bullet exited, he could have been harmed, seriously. However, i
know my limits and that of the ammunition used. Training should be mandatory ... but in my opinion, that's all.
As for 'mental defects' and the prevention of legal purchases ... what IS the point besides more bureaucracy?
Mentally challenged will get a gun if they want one -- legal has no bearing on the decision.
Laws do not prevent criminals from acting out. (uhhh, ehhm, neither do the police)
Laws do not prevent criminals from acquiring adequate means to act out. (neither do the police)
and, Laws do not assist the victims, in any way, shape or form. (nor are they designed to)
Now, if you care to have a discussion, be happy to oblige. If your gonna continue with nonsense, address someone else. fyi -- i care for 18 felines
and no dogs at the moment.
