Here's a gun owner with common sense:
He said he supports the Second Amendment, grew up in Alaska using guns to hunt and take target practice. He also owns a firearm, but said he was upset by the duo’s actions.
“Someone could have spotted them, felt threatened and the situation easily could have escalated because someone felt they had to make a statement that’s already in the Constitution,” Janiak said. “When you purchase and own a gun, you owe it to the community to be responsible with it.”
I agree on the act of target shooting itself but what's the point if it's not to improve the accuracy of firing a weapon that is made for violence?
And no, I don't think owning a gun makes one violent but guns themselves are tools of war and made for violence.
I doubt that. Anti-gay violence still exists.Gays kissing has never gotten innocent people killed
Isn't part of the reasoning behind the 2nd amendment is to deter government from doing such things?If your government decides to be tyrannical then the Bill of Rights is null and void...
So are all manner of other things. Violence is an action. Somebody has to engage in it. A gun, in itself, is not violent. Much like a hammer it is just a hunk of metal.And no, I don't think owning a gun makes one violent but guns themselves are tools of war and made for violence.
It is what people do with it that matters.
Would this be a bad time to go on about taxation being a form of violence?
I don't object to hunting but I wouldn't compare it to sports that don't involve killing.
Funny I made mention of this concept earlier.
I'm reasonable. I won't stick my nose into your sex life, and you stay out of my gun rights. You have rights and so do I. I am totally repsectful of your rights. Marry anyone you want, as often as you want. I choose my battles wisely, and I pass on this one.
Dieser Weg wird kein leichter sein; dieser Weg wird steinig und schwer.
Nicht mit vielen wirst du dir einig sein, doch dieses Leben bietet so viel mehr. --Xavier Naidoo
If me an Ray Lewis went target shooting we'd both probably be fine. If we decided to play football I'd probably end up in the hospital.
Yet blunt objects are used more often in homicides than rifles. It doesn't matter what you built it for. It is a matter of what people do with them. There is no false equivalency. You're assigning motives to inanimate objects. The motivation comes from the person and not the object.A hammer is made for fixing and building things. A gun is made for killing humans and animals. You really enjoy the false equivalency stuff...
