Gun Control


Recommended Posts

In the USA when we had the "wild west" and most everyone carried guns, do you really think that the murder

rate was out of control?


Of course, a vastly different time and people had different (better) values.


Sad today, that those values have mostly evaporated. What happened to doing a deal on a hand shake? let your

word be your bond? basic honesty? family values? respect for people? lend a helping hand?


Today me thinks that the new generations get their values from the TV shows and Facebook.

Yes.....make guns illegal so that the only people with the guns will be the criminals. Brilliant idea.

The BMs that want gun control usually:   1. are not US citizens 2. have never owned guns 3. came from a "nanny state" where guns are strictly controlled 4. do not remember that Hitler took all th

One thing that has always turned me off on the anti-gun crowd is that they lump hunting accidents in with hand gun deaths. Who goes hunting with a pistol? I saw one anti-gunner on TV showing a chart of "hand gun deaths" in America. It included Lee Oswald killing JFK with a Carcano military carbine and MLK being gunned down by a sniper.


In reality, one of the best weapons for home defence is an old fashion double barrel shotgun with hammers on each barrel. You can keep a non-lethal round in one barrel and buckshot in the other. That gives you an option to react to the situation.

"Killing a bear or an elk or for that matter any animal, for the most part, is about killing for food, not for sport."


Not sure if I agree with that statement. I'd imagine that for many who hunt as a 'sport', it is about the kill itself.
