    I own several guns, most of

    which belonged to my grandfather. My favorite gun, which is tucked away just under my bed, is a Taurus .38 Special. It belonged to my grandfather. He had two of them. I now have one, my dad has the other.

    9mm

    I was raised with both handguns and rifles in the house. I was taught at a young age how to safely and properly handle a firearm. I have no fear of firearms, what scares me is when the person BEHIND the firearm is a moron. Lacey, and her 9mm

    Why Are Guns More Important Than Our Children?

    It's Locked Away In the Attic

    It's the only thing I own which belonged to my dead father, so yeah.  I have a little shotgun that stays put away.  I've never shot it and seriously doubt that I ever will.  I hate guns.

    Yeppers, I Own a Gun

    I own a gun.  She's a sleek Walther P22 pistol.  She's black.  She's shiny.  She's cleaned both before and after each use. Her's "sight" is perfect.  The trigger pull is light and quick. She's lightweight and easy to hold.  She fits perfect...

    Responsible

    I learned how to shoot at a young age.  It was no big deal.  My grandfather thought it would be a good thing so he bought me my first rifle.  Then as I got older, I got another one and then a hand gun.  I have owned a few different firearms over the years and have enjoyed...

    Many

    And no, I won't appologize for it. Should everyone own a gun? Hell no. Should they be hard to get? Hell yes. 30 day waiting period with full back ground checks, I have no problem with that. My guns stay secure, away from small hands but accessible in times of need. My...

    I have a Sig Sauer P232 .

    380 locked in my safe. It's not the biggest most powerful gun, but it is a lethal weapon. It's a little scary to own a gun. It's like being 16 and driving by yourself for the first time. There's a very profound sense that you really could die, it's serious and no joke. Not to...

    I Bought A Gun

    It was going to be either a 380 Ruger or a 9mm Glock. I felt the grip on the glock was too big so I bought the 380 LCP Ruger. I am the kindest, gentlest person on earth, but if anyone threatens me, invades my home against my will, I am going to shoot first and ask God for...
