    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...

    I am an outdoorsman, a hunter,

    and over all a simple country gent. I see no problem with anyone owning a firearm as long as they are responsible with it. Whether for enjoyment, collections, or for good old fashioned hunting shoot safely.

    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.

    My entire family are all NRA gun members,

    Gun Control?!?!

    even though my father was in the military for 30 years. He never kept any weapon at home. However, today I am well qualified to carry and use a firearm of my choice. I am a military brat and now a service member myself and in the USAF. I serve as a SSgt and am a RN and...

    A common arguement I hear is "why do you need
