Thread Name: BS: Gun ban - yep already
Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
I make no secret of owning several firearms: rifles, pistols, revolvers, and shotguns. I make no secret of having a "concealed carry" permit, either. I do NOT carry concealed because I don't feel the need to carry a weapon concealed or otherwise.
I was first trained in shooting over a half-century ago (yeah, I'm old, so what?). I was trained that if I have a firearm I am responsible for that firearm and all use made of it. This has carried over into my life outside of gun-toting: if I got a girl pregnant, I was responsible; if I drank and drove, I was responsible; if I...well, you get the idea.
Sure could have had a lot more fun if there was more irresponsibility in my life....
