    talk a big game! Trust me its a lot easier to shoot when the target is not shooting back at you!

    lots of folks own guns and carry them, to compensate for insecurities. or to deal with their inner sense of being small.

    I already have shot someone

    I also train police and civilians in this area

    being a world class shot, an attorney and someone who served as a prosecutor I am rather well qualified. BTW most military people aren't really good shots, nor are most cops.

    this is a typical BS line that anti gun types and cowards spew that has no basis in fact.

    A fear of weapons is a sign of sexual retardation is something Freud stated

    YOu make stupid comments, I point out they are stupid so you start this crap. I already mentioned I served my country as a law enforcement officer or I guess you couldn't figure that out. You sound like one of those trade school enlistees
