    is going to happen.

    Gun lovers can have their guns. I might be in favor of education/licensing though, as we have for cars and boats, for example.

    •  The Education/Licensing Thing Is Where I Am At (5+ / 0-)

      but the gun rights folks freak out. I can understand their point-of-view, but it doesn't make sense. I mean if I want to hunt I have to buy a license, so safe to say the state might know I own a gun and nobody is coming to take it away.

      But I also think you should have to pass a basic test. I don't own a gun. Fired one twice. But I love wild game and now I depending on the kindness of friends and family to get said meat.

      I've thought about getting a gun to hunt and when I talk to my friends and family they refuse to take me, won't even consider it, unless I take a few classes.

      For them safety is at the top of the list if you want to hunt with them. Seems pretty logical to me :)!

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      •  I can still remember a tourtiere de gibier I once (0+ / 0-)

        had in Quebec. Not that that has anything to with this, bit I do love a lot of game meat and, like you, I'm dependent on other people. A cousin once made me a pretty nice venison stew. I don't get the meat enough to have any of my own recipes.

    •  they fear fascism... (3+ / 0-)

      because they are so intimately familiar with it.  It visits them every night in their own heads.

      ...just look at the pathetic grip this person (YouTube video) has on their semi auto pistol. These kinds of people are a threat to their own safety, and those standing next to them at that indoor gun range.

      I knew she was the gal for me as soon as she laid her eyes on me. Right on me shoulder, she did. Popped the buggers right out her head, and laid em on me shoulder. She's a sweet heart, that gal.

        dislike them extremely, but I don't want to get anyone angry, so I'll leave it at that except to say I will not be in the same room with a gun waver.

        I have a 20 gauge and hunted until I realized I didn't have to, and I enjoy shooting even though I don't do it any more.
