  •  I don't know. I, personally, have no desire for (0+ / 0-)

    owning anything like that. I'd like to shoot one of them once, just for shits and giggles, (I'd like to shoot a SAW and an M4) but I never think about them, dream about them, I don't feel I need 2 or 3 of them to go to the store to get my coffee.

    I don't think they will enhance my overall sense of manliness.

    I don't believe they make me any safer. My kung fu helps with that probably more because my kung fu is ALWAYS concealed. ;) Can't see it until it's on ya......

    And I have just never felt the need. I grew up in a military family, dad was a marksman in the air force (yeah, weird, but that seems to be the truth).

    I can't explain.

    All I am doing here is expressing concern tha t people think their pet ideas will save lives, and they likely will, but they are NOT going to eliminate these complex, weird tragedies and will likely provide some nurturing for a black market and organized crime.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
