    I went to take my Handgun Lisc.

    class yesterday! Our instructor referenced a book . It said " There are 3 types of people: (1) sheep,these are the ones that don't see the need for guns! The world is fine. They say everything is going to be ok. (2 )The wolf, these are the preditors. Those looking for victims...

    Most of my guns were handed down to me by my

    father and grandfather. I have three shotguns, two rifles, and a pistol. One of my rifles, a .22 caliber, was retrieved from the bottom of a pond. A tornado in 2002 placed it there. It was submerged for many years. I was amazed to discover that it still worked.

    A common arguement I hear is "why do you need

    that/why do you need so many guns?". Well, for me personally, 3 of my guns were inherited so I have great sentimental value, and where I live, the police are 2 and a half hours away so it's common sense to own something to protect yourself.  One of my favorite hobbies to...

    I Have 3

    Since I live alone, I thought it was a good idea to buy a gun for self-defense. Thankfully, I've never had to use it for that purpose. I do go to the range and practice once in a while. I keep my pistol on my nightstand just in case, not loaded of course but the ammo is always...

    I get tired of hearing every time there is a

    shooting that we need to get rid of our guns. It seems to me all the places that these shootings happen in have the strictest gun laws.

    My entire family are all NRA gun members,

    owners, and carriers. We definitely believe in our U.S. constitution specifically the Second Amendment referring to Americans owning firearms and not allowing government to take them away as President Obama is attempting to do today. He is trying to ban and restrict certain...

    Gun Control?!?!

    I grew up shooting and hunting.

    Having firearms in my home is normal, and a part of life for me. It is no different than the silverware in my kitchen drawers--they are there and they are used. I have passed on my love of shooting to my son as well. He is a great shot and handles firearms safely. I have...

    I've always loved guns,

    when I learned to shoot I loved them even more. I'm for gun regulation not gun eradication, you should be able to protect yourself if you want, but just because one psycho shoots innocent people shouldn't mean the rest of the class gets punished too. furthermore someone WILL...
