    It just doesn't follow from "Hunters are good conservationists" to "Everyone in the suburbs needs a concealed handgun for self defense" or "Everyone needs an AR-15 or two because they might have to overthrow the government someday".

    I don't recall my grandfather ever complaining that his .30-30 and .30-06 weren't cutting it for deer hunting and boy he could really use a 30-round magazine and a flash suppressor.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

    •  The title of the diary, maybe? (0+ / 0-)

      I'm not 'allowed' to respond directly to ban nock, he taunts and scolds me and I'm supposed to become afraid I think, but I'm not sure what he thought the title "...Because of Guns..." was about; very strange
