i believe any man should be in complete control of his guns

I grew up with guns, my whole life. Dad's a gunsmith. Everybody in the county either knows him, or of him. They have NEVER been broken into, and a lot of it probably has to do with knowing there are guns in the house with people who know how to use them.

We have guns also, and if someone broke in and stole them, (providing they got that far), THEY are the ones responsible for what THEY do with them, not us. Locking them in a safe where you can't get to them if you had an emergency is silly. What good is it to have them in the first place, if it takes you 30 minutes to get the thing out?

That old bumpersticker saying "If Guns are Outlawed, only Outlaws will have Guns", is a good one, and true, as far as I'm concerned.

I was thinking of a Toys for Guns progam. I'm going to Toy R Us and get me some toys. I will trade you toys for guns. I'll take all you bring me.

ive tried to stay out of this but i cant keep my fingers down anymore...if you take away the guns then only the criminals(sp) will have the guns and what are you gonna use to protect yourself? a butter knife? i think not. and as said before its not the guns fault its the moron on the other end of it. the way i see it is if you are gonna break into my house you better have an AK-47 to have 1/2 a chance because when you come through my door your gonna run into semiautos/pumps/bolt actions and a few single shots looking you in the face. and in my house you never know where they are they might even come out of the bathroom.

..... and be responsible for any crime that
anyone commits using his gun. This way you get to keep your gun, but if little Johnny kills Mr. Smith next door with John Senior's rifle which should have been locked up like it was in Fort Knox, then senior gets the chair, period.

I bet we'd have real careful adults after
this law.

Well I have to disagree with that. IMO what's the point
of having a gun for home defense if it's locked away or
has no bullets in it? Then you might as well have a
club. The only time I ever felt threatened enough in my
house to reach for my gun I was grateful for the glaser
rounds in the speed loader because I was shaking so
bad that it would have taken me a day to unlock a gun
safe, find bullets, load the gun......

Of course life is simple when you live alone. If you hear
a noise and it's not you then its someone else right?
Haven't had to consider gun safety with someone else
in the house. Maybe then I just wouldn't have a gun for
home defense (I'd have guns for critters and such but
they'd be locked away). Then for home defense I'd rely
on my machete - good west indian that I am.

Machetes have many advantages over guns:
-no drive by machetyings
-no one gets hit by stray machetes.
-machetes don't go through walls to kill your neighbor.

so if I come to your house and take your hammer then I beat the old lady next door to a pulp it's your fault ??? that's what your saying and I'm tired of it. The one responsible for the conduct of the gun is the person with his finger on the trigger. not the owner, manufacturer, seller or financier of the gun.

To take another persons gun is theft plain and simple It's high time the law saw it that way too.

The lawyers already think the way you do and look where it is taking us.

I agree 100% tired of the blame going to the wrong person. I guess if they break into your locked car, steal it and kill someone with it they should be able to sue for every thing you own cause you did not remove the wheels and put it in a safe. Makes about as much sence to me. Put the criminals in Jail and throw the keys away for a long time sounds like a better idea to me. Mark H.

That's the way I feel. Same thing with locking your house ,car or anything else for that matter .
They make you the bad guy for not locking your car . BS If they made the punishment fit the crime . You could leave your gun in a unlocked car and not even worry about any body taking it .
But these days it goes way beyond that I guess .

Dave Smith, I agree    Posted 01-05-2004 at 10:28:26       [Reply]  [Send Email]

Bigger Bore shorter barrle for a little more spread and OO Buck should help along with the noise it makes. Mark H.

Mark, You would realy like my two latest guns. A Henry 22 Golden Boy and a Henry 17HMR.

Willy-N Nice!    Posted 01-05-2004 at 16:49:00       [Reply]  [No Email]

I like those! I realy like the lower one if it is the kind you can put the barrle in the stock. Here are a few of mine, .223 Mini-14 Ranch Stainless, 7.62 (.308) M1A/M14 Springfeild Daddy to the Mini-14 and my favorite 12 Ga Winchester 1300 Defender extended Mag I keep near the back door (hidden) for special occasions if needed. All loaded but none chamberd ain't looking for ammo when they are realy needed. PS those are all 00 Buck and Slugs for the shotgun they work on most anything. Mark H.

Dave, you may not be able to hit anything BUT, you can sure scare the sh*t out of them.

Dave Smith    Posted 01-05-2004 at 14:34:23       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Didn't say I couldn't hit anything. It just takes more concentration. I still have a NRA average of 248 with a handgun. Not as good as it used to be.

They call that "Menacing" been close to getting charged with that myself. Local party boys aren't a problem now though.
