    Glad we could resolve this .

    It's not about fear, it's about pragmatism. I'm not afraid of getting shot, or death really, that said I don't believe in making it easy for an aggressor to take my life or property either, or worse hurt those I care about. The worst time to find out that you aren't prepared is when you need to be.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    1) I don't mind people carrying who are qualified and skilled. Nor do I oject to them being banned from schools or hospitals or court houses. These seem like reasonable restrictions to me.

    2) I have no objection to an assault weapons ban.

    3) haven't thought about this one much, but not sure what the reasoning would be for stock piling. Just seems odd to me more than anything I finger to object to.
    If someone has no objections to that sort of ban they are anti gun without any doubt

    They have stated that they think it is permissible for the government to prohibit honest people owning the same weapons that our tax dollars are used to supply to CIVILIAN police officers who have no greater rights to use such weapons than we do


    furthermore you prove you buy into the idiocy that stuff like a bayonet lug or a pistol grip makes a weapon less suitable for "private ownership" which of course proves you have no clue about how weapons work

    Honestly a pistol grip does nothing for me really. I can shoot a shotgun without it. I can shoot a rifle without it. Done it for years.

    Bayonet lug? Really? What does that do other than add weight? Am I really going to stick a bayonet on my rifle to go nuts? NAH! Besides attaching one would make my weapon less accurate anyway. I mean what else are on thes lists? All of it is a bunch of garbage.

    Stock piling is hilarious. I can only put 1 weapon in my hand at a time.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Re: Guns

    back when I was a world class shotgunner, I and a guy i used to work with in skeet who was on the 96 Olympic team would often do demonstrations that involved shooting skeet targets from the hip. Now a bunch of anti gun turds told us that pistol grips were for "spraying" bullets from the hip. Guess what-its really hard to shoot anything with heavy recoil (like a 12 G or 762NATO) from the hip with a pistol grip due to the angle and stress it puts on your hand. Now if you have the stock tucked under your armpit a pistol grip is easier to shoot the gun one handed with.

    but from the hip-no way and I have run a couple dozen 25 straights from the hip so I know something about hip shooting

    Hmmmm... What do I think about gun control.

    Well, in as few words as possible...

    1. Know your weapon and it's capabilities and train yourself accordingly.
    2. NEVER use your firearm for illegal purposes.
    3. Know your target and even more important, know what is BEHIND your target.
    4. Breathe slowly.
    5. Aim with both eyes open.
    6. Pull the trigger slow and steady all the while focusing on the sights.
    7. One shot, one kill.

    Gun control.

    Voted for option 2, which is in general my position on the matter.

    Although I'm fine with option 1, excepting violent criminals and such.

    never much like american trap-its miss and out basically Never shot enough handicap to get yardage to shoot the grand

    but I was once wicked good in Wobble (silver medalist-National Collegiates) and I won a few regional medals on a real bunker trap-now that is fun-olympic bunker.

    I had a 100 straight in ISU skeet but I remember watching Military shooter Billy THompson run a bunker 100 straight at the Pan Am Trials in Prado TIro (Ontario California, 1984 Olympic games venue)--now that was something
