The Pope used to have quilt the gun collection in his youth...a couple Lugers, a Gewehr 41, a Schwarzlose MG M.07/12 and even a Panzerbüchse 39!

He had to give them all up back in 1945 for some reason or another.

You're defending yourself when you go hunting?

The purpose of a weapon is typically to injure or kill. The hows and whys vary by person.

ISO15693: jehovahs witness protection: Why are you lefties so afraid of guns?

Actually, "lefties" dont fear everyone so much that they need guns.

Guns are for the fearful, to combat that fear. If you feel vulnerable and helpless without a gun, you may be a scardy-cat rightie.

Us lefties can man-up without having to be armed.


And hunters. And sport/target marksmen.

You're getting mad about guns on the internet. Man up and quit being a sissy biatch. Popo will still shoot you in your tear stained hoodie and get away with it.

/I was into archery as a kid. Never thought about actually shooting anyone with an arrow.


Oh! My! Farking! God! Your parents let you play with weapons as a kid? That is HORRIBLE! I have to ask, though, did they let you play with other weapons? Did they let you play with baseball bats, er, I mean clubs? Clubs were designed to kill and are weapons, right?

:-D

I am about as liberal as they come (socially at least) but I still think shooting is a fun hobby. I also believe that people have a right to be armed and to defend themselves with a gun if there is no other alternative.

Here is my point: People are not binary. Our beliefs cross spectrums.

drewogatory: TXEric: So, guess I missed where ".357 Magnum" and "Smith & Wesson" are that famous of a pairing.
I'd prefer a Colt Python myself...

Because S&W's "Registered Magnum" was the first .357 ever produced and is considered one of the finest handguns ever made? Just a guess.


Well, spank my ass and call me Shirley - I did NOT know that!
And I've been handling shootin' irons for over 40 years.

2012-04-12 02:05:21 PM  
Big deal. I own far more than 13 guns, most of which are assault rifles. I enjoy shooting at paper targets just like most people. But that won't stop the lefties from going all batshiat crazy.

Can't argue with retards. :/

overzealous: Why does gun ownership = lust for violence?

Seriously, do you anti-gun people lay awake at night thinking all gun owners are crazy? That I have all my firearms arrayed around me on the floor, as I sit naked in the middle cooing "Soon, I'll use you on people! Mwah ha hah hah!"

Quit projecting your desires. Most of us don't even like killing fuzzy animals, let alone people. Like Calmamity, mine are really expensive paper punches.

/guns around me, no
//naked, on the floor....maybe


Gun ownership does not equal to lust for violence. I own several guns and I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I
wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill, KILL, KILL."
I just do not get it when people say that gun ownership equates to a lust for violence. It is ridiculous.

Wayne 985: The purpose of a weapon is typically to injure or kill. The hows and whys vary by person.


In the broadest terms, the purpose of a weapon is to force compliance with the wielder.

Sometimes that mans injuring or killing, sometimes it means interfering with the nervous system's voluntary control of muscles, sometimes it means causing pain without injury, and sometimes just the threat of the weapon is enough to cause compliance.

Rather like that Book fella on that Firefly "transport" that just left the area in a hurry?


Not too far off. One of the Non-supernatural miracles I saw him pull off involved securing the return of Parishoner's husband after he'd been kidnapped in Columbia by one of the professional kidnapping gangs. I don't speak Spanish so I don't know what was said but it seemed to me that all it took was a half dozen phone calls by him to persons unknown, one of which I think was the rep for the kidnappers

Well let me put ti this way, Once when I was serving Mass with him (cue all the altar boy jokes) a local woman was assisting him in handing out communion and one woman in her line looked up, saw her and made a snort and crossed over to the priest's line (silly as this may sound, this was a BIG DEAL to some people, pre-Vatican II only priests handed out communion and some of the older folk were still horrified that they let non-priests, and worse yet women, hand out communion)

Noticing the woman distributing communion was a little upset by this the priest leaned over, and with a twinkle in his eye whispered: "You know in my old job we'd have shot a line-crosser"
