    Is shooting a bad guy in the home the only reasonable use of a firearm?

    Most of the anti gun advocates are motivated by political hatred so they are usually unwilling to admit that there are millions upon millions of beneficial recreational uses of firearms as well as thousands of well paying jobs. In Massachusetts two liberal democrats used to support Smith and Wesson because many of their constituents worked there

    Facts interfere with propaganda. You know, like "good guy with a gun." Statistically, it should read: suicidal man with gun shoots self in head.

    It’s your claim. Back it up or it falls away as fabricated bull****.

    My claim and the thread's theme is a fact: if you own a gun, you are much more likely to shoot yourself or a family member than a bad guy. Now, stay focused.

    More likely to accidentally kill a loved one in a car crash than kill a loved one with a gun.

    So, what should we do about cars? Should we report every stinkin' car fatality, too, like we report every stinkin' gun fatality?
