  •  I see it as a compromise. (4+ / 0-)

    People hunt. Some people hunt to put food on the table. I know many years when I was a kid my dad went hunting for that reason. He didn't when there was a lot of work, but he was in construction and when years were more lean, he hunted. Some people just enjoy hunting. Some people do a little of both. I see no reason we can't compromise. There is no way to prevent all killing. We can reduce it though and still allow personal protection and hunting.

    With my ex-husband, if my son did not have the condition he has, I would have a rifle or a hand gun in the house for personal protection. My ex, before he was a felon, had a gun collection, I used to go target shooting with him. He knows I can hit what I aim at. That hesitation would give time for my kids to get out of the house and to safety. Heck, I wouldn't even need a loaded gun for that.
