Hey Muffs,

Glad you liked it. I always use a .22 when introducing anyone to using a firearm as it is pretty gentle either as a rifle or a pistol. Most people handle it pretty well.

Can someone leagally carry a concealed pistol where you are? I would think that would not be allowed.

I'm not sure this is real

In other news, it's perfectly legal to make your own firearm.

No it's not aloud.
But it's the fact that it is able to be counseled easier then a rifle that makes handguns so hard to obtain in the first place.
Much more so then rifles or shotguns.

No, and as I have stated many many times, I am well aware that my spelling sucks.
Is it unreadable? No.
So get over it bigboy.

RE: A modest proposal for gun control
The BlackKnight, I come from an odd perspective, but that is immaterial.

I am thinking about buying a short barrel double barrel shotgun to keep by my front door. I have no doubt that I will be approved for gun ownership.

I also will soon live near where many teenagers walk between school and a shopping area at lunch. I am tempted to sit there with the shotgun unloaded on my lap. I think the latter would be a more useful use of the shotgun then for self protection but I am a little uncertain.

I have no problem with guns in certain hands. I know many people who enjoy guns and use them for sport or hunting. I also know people who own guns who I distrust. It is not an easy issue.

RE: A modest proposal for gun control
Why is it illegal for felons to own a gun in the US?
Did they not serve the time for their crime?
Are they not full citizens again?

Should we ban then from sex, eating at restaurants, schools, government buildings, etc.

I believe this is the civil rights issue of our time. Tongue

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
