    No, Thunder. There is nothing "toy" about a firearm, nothing. No assing around.

    Personal example. I'm pretty much a happy go lucky sumbitch. It has taken years of practice, and I am not always on the money, but I try to take much of the world with a grain of salt. I laugh and joke a lot. The one time I do not joke or piss about is when I am armed, period. Firearms aren't toys. Toys aren't designed to eliminate the threat of you and yours being robbed or assaulted. It is serious stuff. It isn't funny and you shouldn't joke around about it. Having a firearm in your possession is a serious responsibility the entire time you have possession of it. I have never personally seen a clearing barrel that hasn't been dinged. Even pros screw the pooch.

    Gun habits make you a responsible gun owner or an irresponsible gun owner. Once you learn it's hard to go back. Gun safety is 24/7 no matter if you are holding a pellet gun or a .50 cal. If you handle a pellet gun improperly you will handle a real gun improperly. If a lot of us pick up a water gun we are going to have our fingers OFF the trigger, habit and training.

    If you handle a pellet gun with your finger on the trigger, I don't even want to be in the vicinity when you pick up a real handgun. I'm worried more about my butt than I am about yours.

    again, a weapon or a tool, can be used as a toy.

    just as a toy can be used as a weapon.

    target practise, and militia boys running around the woods playing soldier, is an example of guns being used as toys.

    Again, “Used as. Not.”

    Anyone who considers a gun as a toy, even if they're using it exclusively for target shooting, is a ****ing moron and should not be handling a gun at all.

    that's your opinion.

    guns are used as toys all the time, such as in target practise...or just shootin' stuff for fun.

    Once again:

    Used as.

    Not.

    A gun is never a toy, and always a tool.

    your biggest blunder is showing ignorance for guns.i really dont think your afraid of others getting them i think you are afraid that if they were easy to get you would buy one go on a power trip and shoot someone,so instead you expect uncle sam to excersise control because you seem to lack it.


    all guns are to be treated as loaded.when i took the picture of myself with the revolver i did have my finger over the trigger,thats not how i hold a gun,i did it just for that picture,but only a moron would think a finger over trigger and guns can be toys is fine.people like you killed pat tilman!!!!!!!!!i have seen enough accidental discharges in afghanistan and wrestled enough loaded rifles out of peoples hands to wherer saw you in person like that,you had better not blink cuz your going down.

    shooting random things around one's yard, is using a gun as tool?
