    So do very many people.
    Probably too many people.
    Do you own it legally or illegally?
    probably lots of people here also own guns.
    What's your point exactly?

    I already posted about the laziness of the "guns don't kill people..." saying in thread one. It's a ridiculous saying. A gun is a killing machine, designed solely to kill and maim. There is no other purpose for a gun.

    Somebody needs to pull the trigger. It doesn't happen spontaneously.

    Obviously. I might not know much about guns but I know that much lol. The point is, a gun is a killing machine. Guns are designed to kill and maim. If gun control was actually working imagine how many deaths would be prevented. Not just in mass shootings but murders/suicides/accidents. Gun control laws are not working, and tightening up gun control shouldn't impact on responsible gun owners.

    And all can still be used to kill. A rifle is a rifle, a bullet is a bullet.

    Clearly it bears repeating.

    Are clay pigeons intact after being shot? Or, rather, are they broken, shattered, or otherwise maimed?

    Sigh.
    What was that phrase I liked? Oh yes, deliberately obtuse.

    We've recognized vehicles can be dangerous, thus it's not legal for my 10 year old stepson to drive. It took a long time for drunk driving to be not be acceptable--it is likely going to take lots of time and repitition before real change is made. Imo

    Extremely tight gun control. It's what I've stated in the past two threads. If you are a responsible gun owner then the restriction of assault weapons, high capacity magazines, safe sales (with much more stringent checks), ending gun show/private sales, safe storage of both guns and ammo separately and much tougher laws if you don't store your guns/ammo safely and separately, that would be a start for me

    It's always interesting imo, to watch people during a US gun control debate start bringing other topics into the discussion. It appears to be a means of deflection to distract others from the on-point arguments.

    The problem is imo, the deflectors come across as having no empathy for lives lost forever, dreams that will never be reached, families and relationships that are forever destroyed ..... the list goes on.

    Do guns belong in the hands of people with no empathy for others? My vote is no fwiw.
