Humanity has always been looking for the next step on their way to become Gods themselves, and Guns are simply the next step. Who else, what else in the world can indiscriminantely end the life of a man and feel no remorse other than God himself? "
Tell me you are joking about this statement Conquistidork. The problem with this type of "Godhood" is that historically these God seekers have always been in competition with other God seekers. It is historically a very lethal game. History is littered with the corpses of those seeking this type of Godhood and thier victims. If you believe this you need some serious help.
I understand the concept of hunting or fishing/trapping for food. Man seeking Godhood for themselves in this manner is like ....only public education can get someone this dumb without them knowing the whole story. Good grief I cant believe you post su
ch a statement. Public education at its finest. You have the right name in your title.
A more responsible God like conduct and value is to raise ones children to be diciplined people ..responsible within the bounds of thier culture. To be knowlegable ..to make sound decisions and to be upright peoples. Firearms training is only a small part of this dicipline. It is not the most important part. Overall Wisdom and Knowlege are far more important. Knowing how to put this Wisdom and Knowlege to use daily in our lives.
