Gun owners?

RE: Gun owners?
Quote:So that was equal to what the military had.

The militia was the military. 

And never forget what George Washington thought of them.

Quote:
  • To place any dependence upon militia, is, assuredly, resting upon a broken staff. Men just dragged from the tender scenes of domestic life - unaccustomed to the din of arms - totally unacquainted with every kind of military skill, which being followed by a want of confidence in themselves when opposed to troops regularly trained, disciplined, and appointed, superior in knowledge, and superior in arms, makes them timid and ready to fly from their own shadows.

Maybe I've never taken an interest in guns because I'm satisfied with the size of my penis.

Well then that explains it. Mine's tiny and I love guns! I also have a big red truck that likes to blow smoke on Prius owners! Maybe I should've just gotten plastic surgery instead.

Personally I am a former marine and currently enjoy gun smithing as a hobby. Would also love to get into competition shooting one day. But I am a strictly peaceful gun nut. I would never want to take another persons life. Especially that of another American. Even though I can carry in public I generally choose not to.

I don't right now, but I have been meaning to get one for years. In canada you have to have a gun safety course first, which I've never gotten around too. however I have fired a .22 and I grew up in house with lots of guns (my grandfather was a avid hunter) So I see no issue with people owning a gun as long as your responsible and store your guns safely and have fucking half brain with it. I do think that texan that shot himself taking a selfie was a moron as he should've at least checked to see if the damn thing was loaded.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Wow.  Where would you go to shoot that 300?  
Oh wait, you're in Texas, aren't you?  They have ranges that will let you shoot that thing?

Daniel Morgan figured out how to use them at Cowpens.  "Just give me two fires, boys.  Then you can run away!"

Okay - he didn't say "run away" - that was Graham Chapman in Holy Grail - but he did tell them to withdraw behind the regulars and "regroup."  Everybody knew he was trying to get them out of there before they ran away!

In my opinion militia should be formed of military veterans. Though in the rev war they didn't really have that luxury. Now we do.

Well america does have the militarized nation in the west.
