First off let me start by saying I do own 2 firearms. A Glock 26 and Taurus snub nose .38. I shot my first gun at 8 years old and it was a .410. My
father took me dove and squirrel hunting with it. Then at 10 I got the youth pump 20 gauge, at 12 the semi automatic Winchester 12 gauge. My first
deer was with a 30-30, next season I was hunting with a 30-06. I grew out of hunting at age 20 it just no longer interested me.
I used to hang in rough neighborhoods as a teenager but have never needed a gun. Maybe its because I was lucky.
Anyways since this newest shooing my Facebook page has been blown up with pro gun stuff left and right just like here on ATS. Frankly im sick of it.
Our guns and 2nd amendment rights will not be taken away. But damn it, it needs to be said, Americans are OBSESSED with guns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The majority of Americans have not been a recipient of a home invasion or robbery. The majority own guns because they want them. They love them,
cherish them and some seem to even worship them.
I have no doubt if the government ever sent a force to take there guns and they had children in the house SOME would engage in a shoot out with that
force. Never-mind there kids and family getting riddled with bullets because yes, some love guns more than there family it seems to me.
I do want to protect myself and do fear criminals who are armed. But you know what? I fear the damn CCW redneck fanatics as much as the criminals. It
needs to be said!!!
You CCW carriers can come spout we are all responsible and try to avoid confrontation all you want. Needless to say whether you want to admit it or
not there are CCW and gun owners who are not criminals per say but cant wait to shoot another human being.
Of course the majority of law abiding gun owners are not like this but, there is a share of them that are exactly what im gonna describe!
The typical American male is now a soft couch potato and is scared of there own shadow. Most cant defend themselves with there hands and when they get
a gun it sprouts them a set of balls they normally wouldn't have.
Make no mistake these type of men would shoot you in a fistfight they started. There is no longer honor here in the States. Its a win at all cost

Shoots unarmed boy, but he was playing hero vigilante and a ccw holder should not look for a altercation!!! This didn't stop him from engaging after
he had called the cops!!!
Since May 2007, concealed handgun permit holders have killed at least 175 individuals -- including nine law enforcement officers -- in 26 states. Of
the 104 incidents that resulted in the deaths, in half (52), the concealed handgun permit holder had already been convicted or committed suicide after
the shooting. Of the 52 cases still pending, the vast majority (46) are charged with criminal homicide, two were unintentional shootings, three are
still under investigation, and one involved a concealed handgun permit holder who was also shot and killed during the incident. Of the 104 incidents,
16 were mass shootings
So yes I do fear my fellow American Rambos, cowboys, terminators as much as I fear getting robbed.
I am in the process of getting a CCW to protect me from other CCW just as much as the criminals.
My fellow Americans brag about there arsenals, ammo amounts, shot placement, and how they would have took out that deranged shooter in a second.
Yes Im tired of all the arm chair quarterbacks with guns here in America who think they are Robocop, locked n loaded, invincible and ready to go. If
you are that good you dont have to brag about it. Those with the most skill at things are usually the ones who keep there trap shut about it.
There are to many Americans who carry because it makes them feel like a man and triples the size of there balls.
I have no problem with responsible gun owners who are mentally stable and dont carry a gun cause it makes them feel like a bad ass like the average
thug walking down the street with a Pit Bull cause it makes him feel manly.
I miss the days when if two people had a issue they duked it out and went there ways. I love keeping physically fit and would much rather confront
someone in a match of fisticuffs than guns.
But unfortunately things are no longer like this not only with the criminals but the Rambos.
You gotta be very careful now in the states, someone flips you off road-raging in a parking lot starts a fight with you and cant hang in a physical
confrontation BAM they can shoot you and scream yeah he was unarmed but i feared for my life SYG baby!!!
These people scare me more than the criminals to be honest and yes they exist!
So fellow Americans own your guns, enjoy them. But do not think for one second they make you superman, they make you a man, or you are winning any
support from the anti gun people by bragging about how large your arsenal is and how much of a Rambo you think you are!!!!!!!!!!!
