    The Right To Carry

    Without the Right To Carry you are asking to be a victim. I believe President Obama and VP Biden will ignore this citizens words spoken 30+ years ago.

    I Have A Gun

    It is between my legs. It's been loaded by itself, I don't need to buy ammunition. My gun knows when it has to be ready. I don't have to worry about that, my gun will do the work. I'll just point my gun somewhere and white bullet-shots get fired. I have such a nasty gun!

    I am a gun owner and proud of it.

    If you are one of those Liberal pansies that start trembling and having a panic attack over the site of a gun, I feel sorry for you.

    Not Really A Gun-lover

    I own an IOF .32 handgun. It's not that great a weapon but it'll do the job it was meant to do - protect me if needed. My dad is a different story, though. Being an ex-military officer and a marksman, he's got a massive collection of guns. It's actually a bit scary to me. He...

    My collection isn't big,

    a shotgun and a couple of russian mil surplus, all of which I like to take out to the range now and then. Heck, I even enjoy cleaning them afterwards. I do believe that every properly trained person has the right to own a firearm unless proven otherwise.

    Nonsense Is Sometimes Funy In Gun Talk
