    As for what is or isn't responsible...that's an entirely subjective thing, isn't it? We have firearms in the home. We hunt, we shoot for fun, we carry for personal defense...above all else...we teach responsible and safe use of firearms. My kids were not raised to be in awe of guns, to be in fear of guns...they were a reality, as much as anything else in the home. When they fired weapons, they were with me. They were taught by me.

    Fear.

    We dont live in fear. Not of other people, and certainly not of guns.
    Fearing guns seems very sensable to me.

    As I said when I started in this thread; You Americans often seem mad to the rest of us.

    Its ironic. Much as Brits love to weigh in on US gun issues, you would think they would be afraid to leave their own homes.
    "The estimated total number of guns (both licit and illicit) held by civilians in the United Kingdom is 4,060,000"

    And their violent crime rate? Fuggedabouddit.....

    You seem to want to live in a wild west society. You seem to like the closeness of death.

    Why do you fear guns, and what makes you say what you just said?

    Dood...I live out west. We are hell and gone from a 'wild west society'. Our state is quiet and peaceful. We have a far lower crime rate than you. Hell...take away the liberal utopias that are the major cities and their ridiculous ANTI gun laws and this country has pretty much NO gun problems.

    England has over 4 million guns...many of them in the hands of criminals. Are you quaking? Are you trembling? Are you fearful? Are you worried the guns are going to rise up and kill you in your sleep?

    Not a bad idea. Contrary to the movies and myths, the wild west actually have very low crime rates. Ok, so wild Indian and Mexican Bandito raids didn't count. An armed populace made for very low crime rates and a very polite society.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.

    why are socialists generally so hateful of honest people owning guns? is it that an armed population is a vaccine against the creeping collectivist crud of socialism?

    Some adults don't seem to have the emotional intelligence to understand that 3 year olds should not be expected to be put in situations where adult responses are required or there will be trouble. Their political gun nut idelogy has blinded them to very very basic common sense.
    I suspect if you had your way, no age would be old enough to own or use a gun.

    we find the fear of guns in other countries to be laughable. We also wish to keep our arms so if foreigners try to take them away we can terminate such a threat. If you are afraid of guns-which you are-don't own one.
