    Judging by the fact the last pic you showed is bb gun and these things that look like you dug up from someone's yard I would you are very scared of guns. Do those bullets still have powder in them?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    A lot of your argument has been about straw purchase of multiple guns for sale illegally in states/cities where guns are heavily restricted.
    Please go back and review my posts. It appears you have confused my position and my posts with someone else.

    I did not make such arguments.

    Rabid fox that attacked my son on our porch.


    Shot at 24 yards with a .40 pocket pistol with a 3.5" barrel, while the fox was running laterally to my line of fire. One shot.

    yes, they have powder in them.

    no, its a pellet gun.

    no, I'm not afraid of guns. I'm going skeet shooting in two weeks and rifle shooting a few weeks after.

    I've shot three kinds of guns in my lifetime and plan on shooting many more.

Why not? Pills are for taking, and as long as they're being taken then they are being used as intended. But what instructions are there for guns? Gun law.

    Using something illegally/improperly is misusing it. I'm not sure how someone could get along in life without understanding that.
    You are intentionally and deliberately confusing apples with cinderblocks.

    The intended purpose of a gun as invented and created is to fire projectiles in the pursuit of advancing your will, goals or aims over others by force. A person who uses it for a criminal purpose is using that gun just as it was designed. The perpetrator may be committing an illegal act with a firearm - sure. But they are most certainly using it as it was invented and created - to advance their goals, aims or will over others. You may not approve of how they are using it - but they are most certainly using it as it was developed and created.

    A car was not invented as an instrument of destruction or as a weapon as you describe.

    No problem. I can see that happening with others attempting to falsely ascribe to me views I do not have.

    Re: Guns

    Hey would any of you guys participate in a "hunting and fishing" thread if I started one? You know, hunting stories, fishing lies, lot's of photos, etc.

    No bitching or whining or being dickhead's in general kind of a thread? Sorta like a port in the storm sanctuary thread?

    Hell, why am I asking this for? I'll just start one and find out.
