Maybe all these antis just can't control their violent urges and therefore believe that those of us who like to have guns around can't possibly control our own emotions.

The ones I have tried to expose to target shooting as a sport were almost to a person unable to grasp and consistently apply the basic rules of firearm safety. They had the attention span of a fruit fly. There were few I invited back.

Wrote a book of fact and examples, using real data from UCS, etc in response to a former infantry platoon member who posted agreement that AR-15s need to be banned. Totally destroyed everything he tried to imply. It was respectful, (had to rewrite a few lines prior to pasting it) , but in the end, didn't change his mind one bit. Infantry for god's sake.... I've pretty much come to the conclusion that no matter what you do, you'll never change their minds.

One of the most powerful speeches in movies. Loki's speech in 'The Avengers'.

Been there. Had one who couldn't comprehend that the barrel is not to be swung around like a piece of the male anatomy.

New shooters get to touch nothing more than a .22 until they have demonstrated that they can operate safely at the range.

Totally agree! And a single shot bolt action at that...

I used to use foam plugs and my ears at indoor range. Problem was that I couldn't hear conversations. Finally purchased good ear protection with volume control so now I hear a lot. Actually left the range earlier then wanted to after hearing things that made me nervous.

Go over to yahoo, establish an email account in the name of your choice, and use it to sign-up on facebook and twitter. Then take the fight to the enemy.

If the death toll was all they were worried about, then maybe they should read this:
Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths every day.

I was on the USS Theodore Roosevelt when the Captain decided that half way through a 6 month deployment, he was making the ship "Smoke Free"! There were so many sailors writing to their congressmen that, after the deployment was over, congress overturned the Captains decision and it was deemed that the ship must provide a reasonable space for the sailors to smoke.

Again, I am an ex smoker and will not allow anyone to smoke in my house or car but, If people want to smoke, I feel that they have that right. Being an ex smoker, I do not judge because I know how hard quitting was. My point is, I don't see huge marches of people wanting to ban cigars, cigarettes, and pipe smoking because of the death toll.

My liberal friend: we need more gun control laws in MD

Me: do you know what MD's current gun laws are?

My liberal friend: No, but we need more laws and they need to be more restrictive.
