AGRAV8
i don't necessarily disagree with it..

But what if a drug user, in the wrong state of mind, shot one of your family.... then what???

no guns, no innocent shootings, right!!

You Crazy Horse,,

You took that the wrong way, I'm referring to random shootings, not a vendetta.

What you propose would be great there's no doubt...of course it won't ever work and could never be implemented or enforced.
I think you need to look at the stats...many more die from stabbing than guns...why don't you concentrate your energy on that problem ??...I doubt there are many knife throwing hunters to piss off..

Wrong no such thing as an innocent shooting. You point you pull the trigger thats not an accident. One should not own a gun if one doesnt know what will happen. In the 40+ years I have carried I have never accidently discharged a weapon. Just because we own them doesnt mean there in our paws just waiting for some dumbass to come in the window....But if they do

No these are not my sandals, Im just keeping them warm. 08/23/60-05/26/06 RIP Bro.

the only point im trying to make is that making laws against guns only clip the wings of the ones willing to abide by laws...someone about to commit a crime has already thrown abiding by laws out the window...so in the end youre just removing more means of the victim willing to abide by laws, to protect themselves

1.I love target shooting.I have shot skeet,trap,and IDPA since 91.
2.They would not have a chance skill wise but I think I would barracade in a room and tell them to take what they want and get hell out while calling the police.I don't think anyone reasonable wants to be in a gun fight.It is the absolute last resort.I personally would rather run away than hurt/kill anyone.
3.I feel it is safe where it's at.
Yes ex military i can see have an advantage but what about a pure civilian?
If you shoot a lot of targets,civilians are just as good as anyone at putting projectiles on target...........I think the media loves to promote guns in a strongly biased negative fashion.The people I have met shooting over the years are some good,decent,hard working men and women who just happen to believe that when something may happen-waiting 5 minutes for the police to come might be 4 minutes and 55 seconds too late.

its not like anyone can own a gun here. you have to be 18, 21 for handguns (in PA at least) you cant have a criminal record, or a history of mental illness. to get a ccw permit in most states requires, at the very least, a background check, and many states require that you complete a training course.

I'll assume you would have discussion with someone attacking you in your house and find out his intentions first.

Here's where I disagree..there's a lot more to shooting at another person than being able to hit where you shoot. Military training is very helpfull in preventing you from craping your pants in a panic sitution...freezing beyond belief and simply shaking so severely that you could not hit a target the size of a transport 10 feet away !!

I also submitted myself to be fingerprinted at the police station and it was put on file with the FBI as part of the quallifications for the right to carry.

I never said that...nor would I.

I do say that it is VERY doubtful that you could perform as well as a person who has been trained to kill with a weapon such as gun...it takes a LOT more than target practice !!

you mean besides the country, the culture, and the people.

people dont randomly get shot on the streets all the time

drug dealers shoot other drug dealers at night in the big cities. and i doubt if any of them a real concered about the gun laws

You are correct you dont have the shootings we have and there is no argument from me there. Im just saying I have them will not give them up and would use them against someone trying to harm me or my familey. I dont say go shoot someone for fun, Cause its not fun and took me many years to get past that part in my life, But I would do it again for my familey and my country.
