We're not cowardly; it's the Masia who are actually insane. The difference
between a spear and a rifle is one only of degree. For the Masia to "hunt"
with a spear is equivalent to taking a knife to a gun fight. Besides, I
don't think the Masia actually EAT the lion - instead they are just idle
pricks with time on their hands, pretty stupid, and think they are somehow
I'm not a hunter. But until you've experienced the thrill of your fingers
around a small, furry, neck, don't be so quick to dismiss the project.
You are absolutely correct in that there are two different types of
hunters; those who do it out of necessity or because of a combination
of frugality and an enjoyment of the sport, and those who do it
primarily because they enjoy it and don't care about the CBA.
I personally think that both have equal right to hunt as they see fit,
although obviously opinions vary.
Don't you think children should be taught the difference between a toy
and a real gun? Shouldn't children be taught not to touch firearms and
to call an adult or authorities if they find a real gun in a gutter?
Police often go to schools to show children what illegal drugs look
like, why not do the same thing with guns? Folks have dangerous items
under the kitchen sink that could harm or kill a child and children
are taught not to mess with those. Kids are curious and will fool around
with anything they see. I think all children should be taught at least
not to touch firearms. I was a kid once, it's a wonder I survived.
You think your kids told you about everything they played with when they
were over at their friend's houses? Yeah, right. You teach kids about
guns, for the same reason you teach them to look both ways when crossing
the street, why not to stick metal things in outlets, and how to act
around dogs they don't know. You can't be with them 24/7. Good, bad , or
indifferent, guns are a part of our society, and some basic level of
knowledge about them is nothing more than self-protection, even if you
never do see or touch one.
It's odd how you can know things that you have no experience with
I will go as far as to say that the NRA has become somewhat shrill and
over the top in recent years, but for as long as I can remember, they
have never advocated anything other than *responsible* firearm
ownership and use. The shrillness and over-the-topness might simply
be a reaction to the increasingly large numbers of people who'd love
nothing more than to take away a Constitutional right simply because
*they* are afraid of firearms, never having been exposed to them or
resposible use thereof. My grandfather was an avid hunter and NRA
member for most of his life. If people like you had your way he would
have had a much harder time feeding his family and would have also
taken from him an activity that gave him much enjoyment over the
years. Not to mention greatly increasing the risk of your hitting a
deer with your car - they breed prolifically when their numbers aren't
kept in check.
Will the OP respond to the question about whether or not a police report was
filed for firing into a structure (occupied at the time, or not), and if he
has contacted his neighbor's insurance company, or if the insurance company
has contacted him?
