    It's not about guns, it's about preventing irresponsible people access to guns.

    Cars are way better for hunting than guns.

    That and just digging a hole and putting a false-top on it with some bait on top.

    I've never understood hunting.

    In the 20th century you were ~25 times more likely to be killed by your own government than by homicide. Gun ownership is a deterrent to state violence. It's not always a very effective one, but it's the only real deterrent there is.

    Smoking an ounce a day in the parking lot does not require spine protection.

    Gun ownership is I doubt much very much of a deterrent to conscription...........

    Not talking about fear. Even in just economic terms it would cost far more to 'round up undesirables' versus an armed populace compared to a unarmed populace. The costs would go up all over the board: an armored Humvee vs. an econoline van, tactical gear with body armor vs. a couple pistols, and trained soldiers willing to get shot at vs. cheap thugs. Probably 20x the cost just in money alone.

    Your ability to archive meat is not what I'm talking about. I'd assume you know that but apparently not.

    You even said it yourself

    It's not about guns, it's about preventing irresponsible people access to guns.
    Plenty of other places are proof of this to some degree. But it's different here. You and I know that.

    Just keep in mind that every time you or someone you know who does nothing but hunt, speaks up against any kind of gun control just because you own one, you make it easier for this kind of thing to happen........again, and again, and again.

    We don't need handguns in national parks, we don't need handguns in bars and we don't need them in schools for you to be able to hunt. And the answer is not more armed people. You know the difference right?

    So if there were strict gun laws, you would an arguable case.


    What about some doofus in the suburbs? What are they hunting?
