It is hard to believe someone that has been on the wrong side of just about everything republicans hold true. Gun control being one.
Now lets talk about gun control. You want find a more avid waterfowl hunter than me, but with that comes a great deal of responsibility.
Having grown up cajun country, we start learning how to blow a duck call on granddaddy lap and wading the marsh and poling a pirogue in the marsh by the time we are 8 year old with no adult supervision. Having said that, we have been backhanded by our dads once or twice on improper use of a gun in away that still resinates in our mind at age 50, by this time.
The problem today is that these kids did not have these life leasons. Most have not seen the life drain out of a deer from a gun shot. Point being they have no clue what taking a life really means. Moving own to the boy that has no real self confidence since life has dealt him an unfair hand but a gun makes him tough.
The law reads if you have not been convicted of a crime or mentally ill, you can own a gun. The problem with this is it does not account for the "yet" convicted of a crime or deemed mentally ill.
This NRA position of no obstruction of gun ownership is irrisponsible. We should set down and determine a way to understand that a person is responsible enough to own a gun and go from there.
I went through one of these right to carry classes and any yahoo can pass it and it is scary knowing that we have idiots walking around with guns here in Texas
If coyote shooters knew how to shoot they would not need a riot gun to shoot them. If you make every shot count, you will kill more coyotes, so hunt with a gun that hits where you aim it
Funny you said that because I was thinking about you while writing this post.
Most any idiot knows that there LEGAL reasons for one to own a gun other than hunting or protection. That also includes an AK-47. I'm sure MOST on this forum are aware of this.
