  •  I have a co-worker that shoots at a range in nyc (1+ / 0-)

    to keep his job-open-carry permit current.  His job allows him (and his co-workers) to own about as many private guns as they want.  This is nyc, but several of the guys are nuts, and own multiple shotguns and multiple assault weapons.  The reason I am posting this is, after talking to a couple of them, the NRA's mission for money is quite apparent to me.

    These guys just simply get off on owning and firing them, much like a steroid addict gets off on shooting stack after stack of cycled steroids, well beyond what the body ever could have used. (Much like any street drug addict).  The guns cost enough as is, but when they go to the range on the weekends, the guy firing the assault weapons can spend THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in ammo, in less than an hour!!!!

    (DING DING DING!! We have a (money) winner!!!)

    Ayn sucks. Please know I am not rude. I cannot rec anything from this browser. When I rec or post diaries I am a guest at some exotic locale's computer.

    •  I have no quarrel with gun ranges (0+ / 0-)

      They're actually a tightly controlled situation, where the guns and the ammo and all are (at least theoretically) secured until they are wanted to play with.

      People want to go to gun ranges and shoot up, let 'em.

      It's the nuts on the street with a houseful of guns and ammo under NO security that I worry about.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!

    •  Cool story bro. (0+ / 0-)

      You've implied that New Yorkers can legally own machine guns.

      But it ain't true.

      Look for 'New York' and 'NFA weapons'.

      Your hate-mail will be graded.
