so why did guys on point carry shotguns in the Nam/ why do prison guards and US Marshalls guarding prisoners carry shotguns. why does a guy like me who was a world class shooter and who had dozens of guns to choose from keep a shotgun as my primary home defense weapon. And why do thousands of people shoot at the National championships at Camp Perry each year with real or semi auto "assault rifles"
And lets look at your pathetic argument. You somehow think its wrong to have a weapon for killing and you limit that to war. That is just plain ignorant. I have guns for all sorts of reasons and one of the most important is to protect my family from criminals and my animals from coyotes. and in both cases, military styled rifles are ideal tools in SOME situations
