I am sorry but the people on this board are obsessed with their guns. I just don't understand it. What do you guys do with all of your handguns? Just wait for that scary intruder to enter your house? Why are you so scared? Who are you scared of? I suggest you guys rent the movie "Bowling for Columbine" and get a new perspective on things. It explores the nature of fear created by the media and that fear's relationship with gun ownership/use/murder with.

You have a poster, BOSS, whos says the following:

"Ours is the last house anybody would want to sneak into. Besides our Komondor that sleeps at the top of the stairs, my 100 lb. lab sleeps at the bottom of our bed. We have my wifes loaded 9mm. Glock next to her, I have my SW 45 cal. loaded next to me and a 357 loaded in my office. No rifles or shotguns loaded.

We have one little girl that knows that if she EVER touches one of our guns.................


I was brought up in the same "gun owning" kind of household. We never had any problems.

EDUCATE YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!
"

BOSS, where in the ehck do you live that you are so scared? Don't you realize how dangerous it is to have guns laying around like this?

Any place where handguns aren't banned and access to guns of any kind isseverely limited is not civilized.

Dang yall always get to have fun with these kind of folks after I hit the sheets.It's very plain to see that Bob is living in a make believe little world that is normal for most innercity types.They ask the questions that have been hammered into their heads by the wacko media and believe it to be the way real people act and react.Most folks that are of this nature could not survive outside of their "kept bubble".

He would make a great talk show host.Ask questions that have no real sence to them and have a kneejerk reaction to common sence.He and others like him will never rule society as long as there are folks like the ones on this board that act and react out of common sence.It is sad Bob that after all the wisdom that the people here have shared with you,that you have failed to see the light that would deliver you from your dark little world.

Where do you get it that I am scared? Also how do you figure I am obsessed with them. In 6 years I probley shot maybe about 300 rounds most of those was from a 22 cal rifle, befor that I would shoot 600-800 a week sometimes. It is a hobby to me. A few times in my life other than Vietnam they saved my life. Just a point I had a knife pointed my gut and I had a .380 Barretta stuck in his nostril, guess what don't take a knife to a gun fight he dropped the knife. When I do search and rescue they come in handy to let others know you found the lost person. I sold a M-16 to make a down payment on my property. Any gun I have sold has been thru a gun shop and a back ground check was done on the person who bought it. Where do you get off on your soap box stating those facts? Do you protect me or my family? Do you think there is a cop at every corner? Where were you or a cop when I was allmost drug out of my van at a intersetion in the city till I put a Glock 9mm in the guys face? By the way there was about 8 of them glad I had a 17 round Mag in it! People like you are what would ruin this country and be the first ones to become a draft doger if needed to protect the USA. I guess you would tell someone who wanted to harm your family that it was against the law to do that. Maybe you live next to the Police Station behind Bars with 5 or 6 locks on your doors and a alarm system you think protects you. You better wake up to the real world and quit living in some kind of a Fussy Make Belive one. You are the one who sounds like a Wacko to me, not someone who has a firearm in there home. You sound like good prey for the criminals out there. Good Luck, I will keep my fire arms around just incase someday they may be needed. Mark H.

What are you a Canadian or some other foreigner who is no longer allowed to own firearms? Im not tryin to be a wise arse, but guns are only a tool, and if your afraid of em obviously you shouldnt own one


toolman    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:06:45       [Reply]  [No Email]
i am a canadian and yes i do have guns and yes we still are allowed to own them however there is that BS element that are trying to change that up here just like down there , just like stalin, castrol, hilter, take the guns away from the people , then there freedom.


LH    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:09:56       [Reply]  [No Email]
My apologies toolman but are oyu allowed to have handguns now or just longarms? I know the aussies cant hardly own anything


toolman    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:57:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
no the hand guns are another issue, im not up on that but my nephew is big into them i think you have to belong to a gun club or something and a different registeration(sp) the rifles too now you have to register , thats their intent once everybody is registered then they will keep raising the fees untill it becomes really expensive and folks will just give them up because of the cost, they ,re trying to to take them away from us joe , but they haven,t won the war yet .


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:09:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
Watch the film. Moore shows how people in Canada own firearms at the same rate that Americans do yet they have less murders. The reason? There is not the same sense of fear that makes people own and load guns in America.


toolman    Posted 08-19-2003 at 21:04:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
i don,t belive that at all, i don,t think the per capital of gun ownership is any wheres near what it is in the states, and if you think there isn,t a fear problem go to vancouver or TO or some of the other cities, also we have about 35 million or so people the states have about 350 million of course they are going top have more crime.i like to see the stats .


Ron,Ar    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:34:24       [Reply]  [No Email]
You mean Canandians are not allowed to own guns? I sure didn't know that.
Bob, you need to do a reality check, we are allowed to have firearms and have always been allowed to do so. Are you afraid of guns? Some folks don't have dogs because they are afraid of dogs.
I hunt,target practice, and just collect guns. They always appreciate in value. I hardly ever sell one but I have never lost money on one. I also collect coins and old currency. Depending on the market and precious metals value I may or may not lose money on that. Those old Morgan silver dollars may not be worth what I have in them ten years from now but I KNOW that Weatherby 270 and Remmington 1100 will make me a profit if I decide to sell.

Handguns are used for what exactly?


I use mine...    Posted 08-20-2003 at 04:31:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
For hunting...Have a Contender single shot and a .44 mag single action as backup...

Bears are fun...Just don't miss...

Used them to shoot pigs ready to be butcherd on the farm. Signal people searching for lost people. Putting holes in coke cans sitting on a log 50 ft away. I bet I could come up with a few more other than saving my life a couple of times. Mark H.


Suzy Q    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:38:20       [Reply]  [No Email]
So yours are like a collection while still
able to use for hunting etc.

AS an investiment I do see that as a wise one.


By the way...    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:26:57       [Reply]  [No Email]
The pertinent fact here is that I can own a gun but I don't want to. Having guns in the house makes it easier for an accidental/purposeful shooting. Your chances of getting shot go up with a gun in the house.


Suzy Q    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:36:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
I do see what you mean here. It is an accident
waiting to happen especially if one is careless
and also if one is prone to loosing his temper..


Valid Point,but    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:03:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
If you are a person who cannot control your temper,there is no end to implements of deadly force..a hammer,an axe,meat cleaver,knife,baseball bat,two by four board,shovel,chainsaw,pitchfork etc,etc,etc.These are all common "tools" which are inherently no more dangerous than a firearm is.Each one has its own dangers in use if user is inexperienced or "going off" about something.Like these a gun is an inert lump of wood and steel until it is put to use,for either good OR bad purposes.
And no,I'm not a current gun owner,but understand why so many do,whether a"gun nut" or not.


Suzy Q    Posted 08-19-2003 at 21:17:09       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes I agree... just hope no hot head goes out
and uses a scatter gun...

Thanks for sharing this... you do have a point.

Ahh, a true voice of reason in the wilderness. Thank you Suzy:)


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:24:26       [Reply]  [No Email]
A tool for what exactly? Look up some statistics about gun deaths in England, France or Japan and see the enormous difference. I can maybe understand owning rifles for hunting but I don't understand the obsession for handguns. You also had a long thread here defending AK-47's. What purpose do they have in our society?


Willy-N    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:59:54       [Reply]  [No Email]
OK lets just outlaw the Hand Guns first. Then when that is done maybe we can outlaw big magazines oh we did that allready, then maybe ones that look a little funny, did that too! OK then how about the Long Guns ones with Black Stocks, OK now you got the idea then the other colored ones, big bullet ones, little bullet ones, pretty ones aww heck lets band them all since we have done so many different types allready. Since I don't like them no body can have them. Sorry you do not have my vote. Mark H.


Bob    Posted 08-20-2003 at 00:59:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes! I am glad you are convinced now!


Ron,Ar    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:45:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well I'm sure those are just lovely places to live, and well thought of by most Americans, but we tried it under English rule once.
The truth is, if it were not guns it would be knives, bows and arrows, poison, sticks & stones and what ever Cain used when he rose up against Abel and comitted the first murder. Did the fact that there was a stone in their house raise the chance of Abel getting killed? Highly doubtful.


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:49:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
What kind of response is that? Did you actually think before making this ludicrous statement? Do you think some kid could go into a high school and kill 20 kids with a bow and arrow? With a knife???? Get real.

Guns kill and the more restrictive we get with them, the faster we will move towards a civilized society.


~Lenore    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:03:29       [Reply]  [No Email]
Guns do not kill.
People kill.
My gun can do nothing without a human hand directing it.
Bob, I understand folks up there in Ma. are very liberal,
and liberals just can't stand the idea that free people can own guns.
Owning a gun does not mean we are scaird of anything.
I notice people who think guns should be illegal all seem to think gun owners are scaird.
I had a liberal Canadian ask me if I took my hand gun to the bathroom at night when I had to go.
What a dumb question!
I rarely think of being scaird.
If I did hear some stranger entering my home at night,
I would have my gun handy.
I would use it if it turned out to be an univited intruder.

My kids have been told to announce loud and clear
if they come into the house after I have retired for the night.
Oh I live alone,


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:07:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
People can kill a little less effectively with knives, rocks, bats, etc. in my opinion. Take a look at Columbine high school; could those kids have killed 20 people with a knives? Please answer that question!!


Tony in Bama    Posted 08-19-2003 at 21:44:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
So we're a more civilized society when we kill with knives, rocks, and bats than if we were to use firearms? Interesting. Thanks for the enlightenment........


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 23:53:22       [Reply]  [No Email]
No, I didn't say that. Homocides will decrease due to the lack of firearms. Take a look at Japan or England.


Tony in Bama    Posted 08-20-2003 at 06:55:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes, you said precisely that. Look a couple of posts above and see for yourself.

You said, "Guns kill and the more restrictive we get with them, the faster we will move towards a civilized society".

Now I've only been speaking English for 42 or 43 years, and maybe I'm not that fluent yet, so help me out here if I'm missing something.

Better yet, instead of helping me out, why don't you refrain from bloviating and chanting tired mantras spoon-fed to you from the media darlings of the left? We've heard it all before, ad nauseum. You statists think that if we just let you have your way, then you can fine-tune society to the point where nobody even gets a hangnail. I'm not buying........

You are talking out your butt...

'Gun Related Deaths' are on the rise in both countries...Wonder if it could have anything to do with the fact that no one has guns except the criminals...

Hmmm...

I am glad you said that, Salmoneye, I did not want to go and research the facts. I was aware of them but too lazy to go get "proof". Not that "Bob" does.

By the way did you check the ISP, I think it is in Masachusetts, not a surprise with his views.

Talking of fear.
Those unarmed British and Japaneese are much more fearful of the "bad guys" with guns than an armed American.

Well sir I did debate but obviously you have such an antifirearm attitude that you just irritated me to no end. No one here has tried to force weapons on you, thats the beauty of freedom of choice. But dont you dare assume to be able to tell me that no private citizen should be able to own weapons either long guns or handguns because your dead wrong on that issue


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:26:26       [Reply]  [No Email]
No, I do belive that in a civilized future, perhaps 50 years from now, we will live with a complete ban on handguns, automatic and semi-automatic weapons with severe restrictions on rifles for huntin in rural areas.

Owning a gun is not like freedom of religion. If somebody is a Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jew, Zorastrian, Animist, it doesn't affect me. But people owning guns DOES affect me.


Of course....    Posted 08-19-2003 at 21:41:16       [Reply]  [No Email]

Look Im a retired cop and happen to live in a state where the ability to carry concealed is easy to meet the requirements for,provided your not a felon. And look at statistics states where gun carry is prohibited or restrictive are more prone to violent crimes than stated with good concealed or open carry laws

Criminals tend to be deterred byt the idea they may try to rob someone who's legally armed

Does that deter them now? NO! Might the criminal aslo possess a firearm? Yes! Then what have you got?

I'll tell ya what ya got if you practice and have the guts you can save your life or a loved ones, instead of being a slaughtered sheep like those porr bustards who cant legally defend themselves in the situation


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:04:54       [Reply]  [No Email]
Nobody in family has ever owned a firearm and we are all doing fine. I bet I also live in an area that is considered more 'dangerous' than where you live. How many times have you saved a loved one with a gun?


LH    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:17:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
Bob I been stabbed or cut on four occasions and shot once in a non life threatening location. and I thank god every day I was able to resolve all the situations without having to shoot anyone, but I was armed and prepared had it been neccesary. And if nobody in your family ever owned a firearm y'all arent from the country are you?


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:30:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
My family history in America goes back to the early 1900's when my grandparents immigrated to the United States from Romania.

They lived in some awful tenement housing in NY which was crime ridden but never owned a firearm. My dad was born in that tenement housing in 1926. He never owned a gun. I was born in 1956 in NYC but not in the tenements so I am thankful. We have lived some trying times but never thought we needed a gun.

There is nothing.....    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:38:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
in the 2nd Amendment which indicates that a citizen of this country has to provide a "need" for any type of firearm which he/she desires to own. It is all about FREEDOM and CHOICE....I could care less about what other countries do pertaining to citizen owned firearms...and statistics are a dime a dozen....most of them won't even make good toilet paper.....


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:46:43       [Reply]  [No Email]
Ahh, the classic answer. "I don't have to have a reason to own a firearm, it is my constitutional right to own a gun." Even though we see needless killings in the news each and every single day? Do you guys remember Columbine High School?


Ron,Ar    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:12:41       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes I remember. I also work for a school district. The national numbers show that every year more students are wounded or killed by knives than by guns. Do your homework. Even in years where we have a "Columbine" the number of kids stabbed far outweigh the number shot nationwide. The anti-gun media forgets to tell that part. At the beginning of each school year we have to attend awareness classes for "student endangerment". Nationwide there is only one gun found per 12000 students. Same reports show 10 knives per 200 students. Metropolitan areas are in the greatest danger. Yes, I thought before I made the above statement. If it were not guns it would be something else. BTW more kids die each year of overdose than guns and knives combined.


Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 23:56:20       [Reply]  [No Email]
So your point is that becasues more kids are wounded or killed by knives then guns are okay?


Rickstir    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:12:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
Bob, please don't try to tell me that Bowling for Columbine was an authentic portrayl of anything remotely related to the truth. Did you see it? Did you notice the judicial use of editing? It was nothing more than a slanted view from a leftest liberal.
Yes Canadian citizens can own guns for now. But you are in the same position as those in England, and their guns were confiscated. So get yours packaged up, becuase your liberal living and breathing socalistic politicians can't wait to turn you into sheep. Who has the fastest rising crime rate in the Western World, England. What is the crime of choice, home invasion.
You said it right, criminals are not interested in permits; or laws, or responsibilitiy, or training or safety courses.
The one thing you don't have to fear is a licensed, trained person who practices responsible self defense. Look at the 33 states in this country that offer "shall-issue" permits and the other 11 that offer "may-issue". Then look at New York, Chicago and Washington DC, three cities with the most restrictive gun laws in the country and the highest murder rates to go with them.
Bob, cars kill many more people each year than firearms. If you think you are invulnerable to crime you are sadly mistaken. It is not the police departments job to protect you (there have been several court cases declaring that). So like many on this board, I live out in the country where 911 is absolutely of no use. It would take 20 to 30 minutes for help to arrive, especially at night when there are only a small handful of deputies to cover the ENTIRE county. What am I supposed to do? Ask the drugged out meth dealer to wait a while.
What are pistols for? For shooting. Either at paper, snakes, coons, possums or in DEFENSE of your life. Would you rather lay yours down? I wouldn't and my wife wouldn't either. What are AD-47's for? See pistols above, only you can do it from a lot farther away. Ever shoot one, I have, they are FUN. Don't be led by the media to believe and AK-47 is an assault weapon. That's a bunch of hooey. An AK-47 is a perfectly legal semi-automatic rifle. It, and any other semi-automatic rifel become an assault weapon when you do two of the following things: add a pistol grip (which the AK naturally has- strike one), add a grenade launcher (heard of any drive-by grenadings lately?), add a flash suppresor (so you can't see the muzzle flash at night), and finally add a bayonet(heard of any drive-by bayonettings either). The phrase "assault weapons" is Clintonese to play up to the media, make them think he did something about crime. Criminals very rarely use a rifle, they want something concealable. Don't let them pull the wool over your eyes.
Firearms are just another way of relaxing, having fun, and protecting yourself. What if they are mis-used by children. Doesn't happen as often as you think becase the statistics also contain shootings by gang members up to 24 years old. See how the left slants things in this country. But children can play with matches, put a screwdrive in an electric socket, drown in a toilet (there are more deaths by children from drownings than by firearms every year in this country).
So don't get paranoid if you don't understand something, and by all means don't believe what hollywood and the media will tell you. Find someone and go shooting, after taking a safety course. If you don't experience it, then you are not qualified to critize it.


Rickstir - one more thing    Posted 08-19-2003 at 20:14:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
I bet if you asked them, the parents of those kids in Columbine would have loved to have had someone trained in the use of firearms INSIDE that school when the bloodshed started. Why do you those punks felt as if they could walk in and start shooting and no one would stop them?
It's commen sense Bob, nothing more nothing less.


Well if the...    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:51:02       [Reply]  [No Email]

Bob    Posted 08-19-2003 at 19:58:22       [Reply]  [No Email]
Another classic repsonse from someone who hasn't thought one bit about the topic. Good job. "Nobody is ever gonna take my gun from me nohwo, noways! I'll shoot them first!"

Have you ever thought that the good of society is more important than your obsessive need for a gun?
The fact that if a law eere passed forbidding you to own firearms and you would shoot them is argument enough that people like you shouldn't own firearms. I bet there are a lot of people out there just like you.

Okay Mr Thinker. Let's try this little two-part quiz.

First, what do the following 20th century governments - Ottoman Turkey, Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Communist China, Guatemala, Uganda, and Cambodia have in common? Answer - all of these nations successfully disarmed large segments of their populations

Part II - What else do these seven nations have in common? Answer - they all committed genocide against their citizens after disarming them. Ottoman Turkey murdered approximately 1.5 millian Armenians. Soviet Russia murdered up to 20 million anti-communists and farmers. Nazi Germany murdered up to 13 million Jews, Gypsies, and anti-Nazis. Communist China murdered up to 20 million anti-communists and farmers. Guatemala murdered 100,000 Maya Indians. Uganda murdered approximately 300,000 Christians and political rivals. And, finally, Cambodia murdered approximately 1 million anti-communists.

If you took the time to research the reason the framers developed the Second Amendment, you'd find that reason number one was not give us the means to protect ourselves from intruders, nor was it to put food on the table. It was to protect ourselves from our own government in the event that it descended into tyranny, so that we don't become another statistic like those I just referenced. Your faith in government and belief that ridding our nation of guns would lead to "civilization" is one of the most absurd things I've seen on this board in some time. It is also utterly devoid of supporting evidence.

Citizens of Japan are basically unarmed. Are they being mass murdered by the state?

Not only is that argument specious it is utterly ignorant to the absurd...

Do a little reading on Japanese history and pay special attention to the parts about Imperial Japan and their treatment of Koreans and Chinese...To this day they consider them 'Mutt' races...

As for a 'disarmed' Japan, you DO remember a little set-to commonly called 'World War Two', don't you? The US forcibly disarmed Japan so they would stop killing people of other races (including WASPS)...

Hunting & just honing associated skills is a popular sport. There were guns before cars.
I have a shotgun, 22 rifle & just ordered a Saiga 308 rifle. My wife, kids & I like archery & shooting target practice.

Keep in mind, I will be hunting before I go hungry. I do not need a wrist rocket for this.

I lost count of the number of times you used the statement refering to another classical answer I as a law abiding gun owning citezen take offense at being refered to as "crazy" as you have done. If you chose not to have a gun that is fine. I along with others choose to do so and I see no need to justify my reasons to anyone. If you desire to post anymore on this subject please try to come up with something orginal that hasn't been repeated over and over. It would make for more intresting reading.
