I'm curious about them, myself. However, at this juncture, there's no need and the laws are stricter than strict. If I lived out-country and where wild animals lived, yeah....no doubt. I don't begrudge gun owners nor the reasons why the wording is what the wording is.

No gun here. My wife told me that if a gun comes in the house, she and the kids leave the house. It would really be a bad Idea for me to have a firearm anyway. I do collect knives though :-)

I do not own firearms. I didn't grow up with them and I'm just not comfortable handling them, myself. But I understand people having them. I know there's a whole safety behind handling them too.

I don't own a gun and never will. There are too many guns out there in the USA. I wonder if we had much stricter gun laws would we have fewer shootings. Besides how many times do you hear about someone actually defending themselves with their arsenal at home?

It's my personal belief that those with mental illnesses should not have access to firearms.

Sure do. I have my CC also. I live alone in the country on a farm. I don't hunt but when out hiking in my woods with my dogs & get surrounded by coyotes just shooting it scares them off.

Also nice to have the protection to cover myself until our sheriffs arrive. Neighbors barn has been broken into probably stuff for drug money....so if they wander over here to find stuff they will regret that choice. I have had a house full of my doggies & their barking would scare off anyone but now I only have one that barks & my guardian doggie died just before Christmas last year. Being able to protect myself is important.

Everyone hunts here.....I just am not into killing BUT if my own life is threatened that is a different story.

Lol.....was thinking I should put up my target I shot so well for my CC.....no thief would come near my home. The CC class was awesome. It covered the laws & we had great discussion with one of our local sheriffs who provided the class.

All my friends have their CC also.

I don't see much of a problem with them, but I do not own one.

I enjoy shooting targets. I think it is a great hobby. I also prefer privately hunted meat to factory farming strickly on the principle of animals living a good life, to the best we can.

I understand why people arent comfortable with them, but I think they are fun for sport.
