    Does it really make a bit of difference if its a pellet gun or a bb gun?

You might as well paint a orange tip on that thing. Its like holding a butter knife and claiming not to be afraid of knives or holding a plastic snake and saying you are not afraid of snakes.
    "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"

    So what? ..... We are talking about the purpose of the invention of the firearm. Please read the sites I have provided for you. Killing is a legitimate purpose of the gun.

    Here is someone who also thinks along the lines of more gun restrictions.

    He says make all guns illegal. And HE'S a professional. Watch and learn.

    you claimed human could get rid of criminal elements in his gene pool if everybody has a gun,and i asked if there wont be any crime if everybody has a gun

    I said nothing about "firarms".

    someone very stupidly said I am afraid of guns. so I posted a picture of my pellet gun.

    and I posted a picture of bullets that I own.

    and I discussed that I am going skeet shooting in 2-weeks, and rifle shooting a few weeks later.

    clearly, I am not afraid of guns. Its just a red-herring to get away from the debate.

    My guns are killa-dexterous; they will kill animals and humans. A gun just for paper targets is a waste of time...well, I guess maybe that is called a .22, but they are great for small game and cheap target practice.

    Yes, the primary use is blowing a hole in someone else. Whether that act is legal or not isn't a function of the weapon.

    This belongs to my wife, actually. Her parents gave it to her as a Christmas present, when she was eight years old.

    Unlike that silly toy that Thunder was showing off, this is capable of doing a lot more than putting someone's eye out.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
