The gun nuts and their lobby have responded with a generation of "watch out fellow nut jobs, because the slightest attempt at the most meaningless of regulations really means the gub-mint is coming for every last gun in the entire U. S. of A." Fvcking azz clowns, is what they are.

    I used to consider myself a bit of an agnostic when it comes to gun regulation. No more. And no more of this democratic party double speak either. There is no need for any of the types of guns used in the Route 91 Harvest Massacre to exist or be available. I don't care what any mouth breathing owner of these weapons says, or if 99.99% of them will ever use them to harm another human being. People need to start saying what really needs to be done. These guns need to be gone. Done and fvcking gone. They are unnecessary. and by the way, before any of our useless politicians do anything else but pray, this will happen again.

    I really love how we have become a society where if you say a simple word or phrase, people automatically know you are talking about a mass shooting where a dozen, or 20, or 30, or 40 or 50 or more people are killed. Aurora. Sandy Hook. Columbine. Route 91 Harvest Festival. Pulse. And if you own one of these guns, I sincerely hope you aren't crazy. But if you are, do the rest of us a favor and just shoot yourself in the head now and don't include any innocent people in your demented actions.

    If your reason for owning a specific firearm is that it has a "cool military look", so that you and the boys can setup turban-wearing targets and go play toy soldier out on the Back 40, then you're a loon and you shouldn't own firearms.
    If we treated a man who wanted a gun like many states treat women who want an abortion, I bet we'd see gun sales down!

    Gun owners of this ilk are not the problem, and even the most strident gun control advocates would be hard pressed to frame sport trap/skeet shooting as a bad thing.

    This is where I waffle, b/c it's a big discussion point. Some argue that putting up fake Muslim/raghead targets for target practice is wrong (it is) but then we have legit target practice (that's okay). Same reason. It's target practice in general. Generally, no one is going out for real life target practice. But, the few that do...now we have to discuss laws and such and the guns used in both instances.

    I will simply stick to my "change gun owners' attitudes" at this point. The specifics...man it's complicated. And I know you and DX (the most vocal gun owners on here) are in the right. You guys know your stuff, and are responsible. Kudos to that.

    ???

    I know skeet and trap. It's not the same as some rednecks mocking up some Muslim targets. Not even close. I'm not Flaggy or Drew. Please.

    Then why did you bring that up? Trap and Skeet is an almost 100% positive subset of gun ownership. To confuse it with racist target shooting in any way is irresponsible. Confusing these things, even to try to make some kind of point does little to benefit anyone.

    Sigh. It goes back to an earlier post referencing that sort of comparison.

    I was responding to said post.

    I must have missed that comparison. Even if you didn't bring it up originally, mistaking legitimate and non-offensive target shooting, such as trap and skeet as nefarious is a gross misrepresentation.

    In fact, if anyone in the Twin Cities area is interested in this topic, and wants to see what trap/skeet is about. Let me know. Most of us that own guns have them for sport, and while they are still very dangerous, we handle them with the utmost respect. I wouldn't want to change your beliefs, but give you a glimpse of where some of us are coming from. I'll even convince DX to come out and shoot a round with us.

    With all this, it doesn't mean I, and many other responsible gun owners don't think there should be some common sense gun control reforms, like I have mentioned earlier.

    Re: Days Since Last Shooting II

    I'm pretty sure you know my stance on guns. If you can show responsibility for the safety and practice of using a gun, go ahead, you are able to own one. More power to you. Not QUITE my thing with my current life status, but I am FOR the right to own guns and use them. I have a special place in hell for those that just buy guns because 'Murica and "I can shoot what I wanna shoot" attitudes.
