Explanation: The thread title is specific, self evident and involves only those members who believe the use of a gun, or any weapon, makes them 1] A Hard Man and 2] Improves their Macho image!

Here is why THEY are WRONG!....

By default of my humanity, OL IS a weapon and I was born with tooth and claw and backed up by THE most DANGEROUS [that caught your Macho attention span yes?
] thing that exists ever anywhere in the universe AKA A Human brain filled with an educated and instictively curious mind of an observer.


Those who loves guns & weapons and think that they are "all that!" need to REALIZE that YES weapons are smart powerfull tools but ALSO that Macho men don't need such tools ever... as Machismo requires NOTHING. . its that VAIN! And to use anything else except oneselves own god granted INHERENT abilites is a failure of willpower and ability and lacks any credible argument as regards to BEING Macho!


What is more dangerous? An angry great ape egotistically weilding a gun in loud desparation for attention. Or the quite gentleman who sits and drinks quietly at the bar? In OL's mind it is the latter as don't be fooled into thinking the wild guy is Macho... the Gentleman is far far more dangerous as they have ALREADY TAMED that wild beast inside them.
Self Control! Do you possess it?


Please discuss!


Personal Disclosure: I hope this wild thread was as tame as I could make it as I seek to BECOME a Gentleman and I'm not there yet.


But no apologies if I have offended anyone on this issue as I hoped to PROVOKE a response!

I'd like to carry a gun so I can shoot any one who emasculates me.
Also to open beers...and someone might commit a crime like butting in line to rent some porn...
gettin them before they shoot is impotant....so as to not leave a mess...

And sometimes I use my pistol to blow the lock off my rifle so when I have been drinking, and I forget where I left the keys to my trigger locks...then I get a cab downtown to go shooting so I don't have to drink and drive...

I'd like to think I am as matcho and tough as my wifes roast beeff.
When she fixed my holster with a piece of old bra strap I was mad and I made her fix it right..
with some leather offn her corsette

Interesting timing of this particular topic considering gun ownership is about to become one of the bigger issues in the US before too long. I only have spearguns, are they macho enough for you?

What if Kimbo Slice was running toward's you with intention to separate your head from your body,
would you, A -stand there and think you have a chance with your milky teeth and half inch knuckles, B - draw for your man made weapon of choice sitting quietly behind your jean's, or, C- RUN! ?¿

My choice would be B and C, together.

Ever been in a real dangerous situation? Or live in a dangerous place, or even just in isolation where it would take the authorities a long time to reach you? There are lots of reasons and situations to have guns in this wretched world. Of course, acting like a toughguy idiot with a gun is not only disrespectful and immature, it will get you into fast fast fast trouble at the wrong moment. So with the rights to use a gun come the responsibility to not be an idiot with it.

Jesus said sell your cloak and go buy a sword. They came back and told Jesus they got two swords. He said that was good.

Suicide is bad. To not defend yourself from evil would be suicide. Jesus wouldn't approve of people not defending their own lives with tools of defense.

Pick up a bible. The Hindu religion is the only one on Earth where they are allowed to carry around that big dagger. Christians have been dumbed down since King James to not defend their own lives.

Jesus wouldn't approve. Besides firearms are 20th century technology. This is the 21st century. The tool of defense now is directed energy. Satan wouldn't even see it coming or know where it came from.

Yeah guns aren't good for anything... oh except winning and preserving freedom from despots and dictators who have been the bane of humane society through out history...

Notice how the OP tries to frame the post to automatically insult anyone who responds in defense of liberty among which is the right to keep and bear arms must be an idiot who thinks his gun is what makes him an man... Sigh.

Nice try OP but that dog won't wont hunt! I am a trained martial artist and can hold my own in unarmed combat but as my Dad used to say; when someone is shooting at you it sure is nice to have something to shoot back with... As long as there are bad people roaming the earth that could care less about yours and my ideals of brotherhood and loving one another there will be a need for self defense. We can't just let the armies of darkness march all over the earth willy nilly.

In all honesty, I have yet to meet a gun owner who carries and goes around thinking he/she is "macho" because of his/her gun on them. He/she may be proud of his firearm, and impressed or satisfied with it, but not acting all "macho" over it.

Perhaps you are speaking about the "gang" types who flash their gang symbols and brag about their guns (or fake guns that look real) so that they can scare people or get attention. Such fools are not the typical CCW gun owner in case you didnt know. And not to mention they usually are of the degenerate type who cant abide by laws so therefore they cannot carry legally.

Are you just mad because you cant carry a firearm? Have you been a bad boy/girl in your life? Trouble with the law? You sound jealous of the fine citizens here who are law-abiding citizens and are allowed to legally carry.

Wow...got something against men who actually act like men? Or is it just guns?

I feel like maybe you're intimidated by guns so you automatically associate that with the carrier and believe that their possession of a gun was just to intimidate people....

You're so vain...I'll bet you think I have this gun to scare you...don't you...

Guns are tools...and they are here to stay.
I recommend you stop being scared and learn to use one.

Unsure as to whether this is satirical or not. Think this is about being macho? Instead of questioning WHY people are acting how they are, question the catalyst for it. It's this society... I have a heart of Gold and pure Love. Does NOT stop the thoughts that if poop popped off, I can at least SOMEWHAT defend myself and those immediately around me and, if I'm at my best, me and at least 20 other well-armed people who would USE our guns to kill a mad man rebel robbery from scalping your behind and looting what few valuables you're doubtfully in possession of - THAT's why. I've stepped out of a store and without having control over what was seen, saw somebody have his head blown onto the sidewalk behind and his body drop then had to walk by because only way to get home. As for the innocent by standers, the children, the women, the fathers who are innocent and are killed, I ask you to ask THEM why THEY or THEIR sons carry guns. Accidents happen and nobody deserves to die but I ask you deep spiritual questions; at what point is faith enough to protect? God is NOT going to come down and take a bullet. God isn't going to stop my family, nor yours, from being massacred on site JUST off idealism, racism, or for simple fun or any reason. At what point do we sit back and observe out of fear of "wrong action" and do what we feel is right? At what point do we "interfere" and get involved? Because while YOU sit on the sidelines and complain (I'd use a word implying female dog) about "macho men who use guns", we few men with guns are protecting wimps (not you but extreme gun haters) like you and innocents who can't defend themselves. I ask YOU, what are your alternatives to safety and defense without guns? Or hell, weapons in general? We aren't advanced enough to assure our safety without use of force, weapons, or murder. I agree, it's wrong but there MUST be a catalyst for higher lesson there; potential to eventually overcome that deficiency. Until God swoops down and assures protection or until we can do it ourselves, I ask you another question, what is the alternative? How do we advance, sleep comfortably, and do so without force or violence? Inner struggles but for now, my enemy invades my country's' beaches and I'm in position to shoot them down or arrange air strike or some means of destroying or stopping them, I'm taking the opportunity, I'm pressing the button... we aren't ADVANCED enough technologically or spiritually to act otherwise. It sucks but TOUGH poop... Sorry, OP - open-minded as I'd like to be, I don't understand your hatred or dislike. I respect and understand your right to have an opinion, but don't agree with it. If we didn't arm ourselves with guns and train men to be soldiers - we'd all be BYE BYE right now and in fact, wouldn't be here. As to that, I fully believe.

Hmmm,,,sounds like you're a "back door man"...the men don't know, but the little girls understand. "Gentlemen" are far more dangerous.

Well if we're talking about what makes a man a man...

Does being able to screw a different woman a day make you a man?

Does being pumped up with muscle make you a man? (I've seen a bodybuilder that acts really effeminate, and no he was not gay)

Does being able to kill someone easily make you a man?

I will assume that being able to kill someone easily makes you a man, but also the manner you do it.

In my opinion, someone who can beat the # out of you with his bare fist and probably kill you is more a man than a skinny freckled kid with a gun. BUT then again, defending yourself against the neanderthal with your gun is a more logical choice, though, isn't it? BUT all of this depends on a whole lot of other criteria. I do say though, proficiency in hand-to-hand combat, which is the basis of all forms of combat, makes a man more of a man than someone that has been trained to point and squeeze a trigger.

But as someone else pointed out, what makes a man "a man" is really dependent on the state of society at a certain point.

At certain eras, being a good soldier made you more of a man that a family person. At others, being a family person pumping out kids made you more of a man than a soldier. It all depends.

Carrying a gun is defintely not "macho." It's cowardly if used only for the purpose of having 'more power.'

If it's used as a deterrant, that's another story...
