Why do you own one?

Do you really think you could use it for protection if required?

How does it feel to give an intruder access to your weapon?

I like guns, there cool just like rc heli's. Oh yeah way i see it one less piece of scum on the street, every time a robber is killed America gets better. No idea no intruder has accessed them yet, only thing they could get is powder, bullets, primers, magazines and clips.

Why do you own one?
First I own many. The biggest reason I hunt but for the past ten or so years I prefer bow. Upclose and personal.
Do you really think you could use it for protection if required?
In a heartbeat.......Would not hesitate, more so if I had familey at home.
How does it feel to give an intruder access to your weapon?
If I am home he/she would not have access........they would be on the recieveing end. If I wasnt home if you dont know where it is you will not find it and if you do watch out for that wire

I own several types of guns...

After having served 4 tours in Nam, I dont think I would have any problem using it.

You have to make that your self. Ok someone comes into your house......They have a weapon. You have a 9mm in the bedstand. You gonna let them take or do what they want? Rape your wife or your 11 year old daughter while you can stop it now? I dont think so if you did you would never be able to live with youself. And just cause I was Military and in NAM doesnt mean I wouldnt think first.........just quicker than most.

Sorry, but guns available to anyone, is just irresponsible..

Whenever i watch CNN, its bursting with Numpties, Muppets, Druggies and wasters,, and you want them to have free access to guns..

I.m sure there are sensible people in America, and i look forward to meeting them..

Colin,
Thats the diff from the UK and the US we have always had the wright to have them you have not and that is sad. I started to hunt with my dad when I was 5 (didnt carry a rifle) When I was 9 I got my first buck (8 pointer) and memories that will last a life time........Hunting with my dad. In the UK you cant own a gun? The bad guys have them.........Wouldnt you want to protect your wife,mum, your kids if you could?

I own many guns, all are rifles except for one 20 ga shotgun my grandfather bought me when I turned 13, it was a gift for complete the hunter saftey course.

I own guns because I used to hunt, have not had time in years however. I also like to target shoot but then again I have not done that in some time.

I dont have guns for protection, I have them because I like to shoot. They are all locked up in a metal gun cabinet. The only one I have ammo for right now is my 22.

On a side note my favirite of them is my winchester 30/30 it was my great grandfather that he bought used when he was 15. My grandmother sent the serial number off to winchester and it was made sometime around 1918.

You are misinformed, yes we can own guns with firearms license but you have to have exemplary record and there are strict restrictions on the types you can own and use.

Droid...I own a gun because I choose to hunt...I have a locking metal cabinet to safely store all my weapons. I don't expect to need my weapons for protection but as ex military I know I am able to do so if I really must...however it would be a last resort I am certain.
Intruder access to my guns ...and by that I am assuming you mean how do I feel about a burglar getting my guns...I would be more pissed if he gets my TV and DVD !! They are my possesions and if stolen I will replace them. I can't go through life worried about what others may choose to do with stolen property...what about the guy who breks into YOUR house and steals all your helis ?? Maybe he will try to fly one and someone could be killed as well. Pehaps he likes your best butcher knife and decides to kill with it...what are you going to do ?? strip down all of your personal items just to keep them away from intruders ??

Your question is a valid one...but some people enjoy hunting and if for no other reason we keep them maintained and by law (canadian) they must be stored properly in a locked cabinet...unlike your butcher knife that any thief can get their hands on.

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.... Dennis

the UK's response to the general public here is pathetic. after the hungerford massacre all law abiding citizens were banned from keeping pistols of any kind (firearms not 'air!'; and now gun crime is higher than ever it was before.
oh well, its the 21st centuary, and the government can criminalize joe-pubic in as many ways as their stupid heads can imagine; just so long as they leave the gun toting crooks alone violent crime will drop! (like f*@k, gov. thinks we all swallow sh!t - not)

geez, the brainwashing of Europe is almost complete
I own quite a few. Each one has a certian nitche it does well.....some are long range rifles, shotguns for upland or waterfowl, skeet too... pistols for ALL occaisions....including personal defense of myself, family, OR OTHERS THAT MIGHT BE IN NEED.

Yes, ex military here as well, I've been in a situation or two that required lethal force, had no problems with task at hand....some second thoughts, sure....but not enough to allow an intruder or "turd" to put my life or others at risk without immediate response.

Access....yep, they could access one or more. SEVERAL "baits" around the house, but not all of them fire. One that actually will "fire" backwards...it will put the slide right into your forehead.. Be VERY afraid of the one I have ON, though.... it has no problem letting go with chilling accuracy. My CCW instructors actually make me shoot off side for qualifications...or draw and fire twice within 3 seconds maximum.

It matters NOT what drives a criminal to my doorstep, what matters MOST is the CORONER, not the ambulance, drives them AWAY.

Before I worry about "free access" of firearms to criminals, I would rather have my borders secured, drug trafficers interrogated as war criminals (no holds barred) and free speech really free....
