    @Nanny Ogg

    the problem with your propositions is that fully automatic rifles is already banned in most states and it's completely illegal to modify semi automatic into full auto like Vegas shooter did, limiting the number of firearms per person won't do anything as Orlando shooter last year used only one rifle yet it didn't stop him from killing 50 people, and setting a limit on ammunition is just completely useless since you can say buy 50 bullets go to range fire ten of them and report that you used them all, do that couple of times and you have more than enough for any shooting.
    Restrictions just doesn't work, Europe probably has the strictest gun laws on the planet but it didn't stop ISIS militants from obtaining them. Just look at your graph from previous post, in the nineties there were numerous of gun laws implemented, but mass shootings only increased.
    Also it worth mentioning that guns are used for self defense all the time, recent Texas shooting only proves that, shooter was stopped by an armed citizen. If you need more examples you can go to r/dgu on reddit, they have reports like that every day.

    well said, i was holding off articulating these facts until the "if it continued" came along :smile: They NEVER report on the news, nor do the statistics include (but you CAN find FBI statistics on it online) the LEGALLY ARMED CITIZENS who STOP violent crime, and many times WITHOUT firing their weapons, its the fact they were armed and able to challenge the threat and some folks might wanna commit crimes but not necessarily go away from this planet in that moment so they decide to give up. Sometimes it DOESN'T go down that way, for the criminal OR the legally armed citizen but you never hear about those things, only the touchy feely things and directed narratives and i haven't even TOUCHED the "crisis actors" topic yet.........reserving......lol :wink: a LOT of this nanny, can be proven to have holes all through it and i don't mean from bullets... just saying. There IS a means to an end, in their agenda. Don't get it twisted.

    LOL David, you know what, apart from guns and gods ( neither of which I believe in >:) ;) ) we are probably closer than we are apart in our views LOL

    Also thanks for the education over the hunting debate, it just goes to show you are never too old to learn something new LOL

    LOL Going slightly off at a tangent here but I wonder what the racists will do in a thousand years or so, when we are all the same shade of mid-brown ?
    Will the new "isms" be blue-eyedism, or left-handedism or shortism or fatism ?
    There will always be something that humanity will find to discriminate against LOL

    I've always used that, and "Shinyyyyyy" from the Crow from hmmm, one of those disney animations, and "Sparkleyyyyyyyyyy" from Templeton the rat on Charlottes Web. I get distracted easily, b00b33s do it too, lol, sad but true :D

    EDIT*** but to STAY ON TRACK (ahem, lol) have you ever fired a weapon nanny? not necessarily modern smokeless firearm, but an old black powder, or stringed archery weapon? slingshot? bb gun? target shooting is FUN! especially when you realize you are not only good at it, but ambidextrous and good at it either stance :wink: the more you shoot the more you want to, lol. And i don't mean going out and acting like a jackhole either. My father was 23 years military, over 12 years Law Enforcement and on State, Federal, and Military shooting teams for longer than that. I was engrained in gun SAFETY culture. If i EVER mishandled a firearm my father would have broke it over me and that is more truth than fiction! An approved range, with responsible handling of a firearm, and a "range master" giving safety instructions, can be one of the most exhilarating experiences you will ever have and even IF it might not sound like it until you've tried it you really don't know. ESPECIALLY if you are on a SPECIAL range and get to shoot some tannerite or something and it goes BOOM! I've had a lot of specialized training so i understand the safety in it and the RESPONSIBILITY most importantly. Bullets don't come back just like words and can do a lot more permanent damage. In the same vein as specialized training and making things go boom, i'll have to tell y'all about UXO school sometime. THAT, was probably the best 200hrs of my LIFE in nearly 47 years (16th will be 47 :wink: ). I was going to, and still could if i didn't have the dogs and could travel....do that for a living. Who WOULDN"T want to answer the question "What do you do for a living?" with "I blow $#!+ up" LOL :D

    Funny story since you asked David but about 20 years ago I went on a works day out with colleagues to a clay pigeon shoot.
    Up until that point I had never fired any gun in my life but unbelievably I took to it like a duck to water, and much to the chagrin of all the boys I actually outshot every single one of them and went home with the award for the most accurate shooter of the day LOL
    The instructor said I was a "natural" ! LOL

    Oh yeah and the funniest part of it was the time when I was standing in front of a semi-circle of my colleagues all waiting their turn, along with the instructor/supervisor, taking my shots when one of them said something and I turned around to reply... while still holding the loaded shotgun at waist level in front of me...

    You have never seen a bunch of people hit the floor so fast ! LOLOL :D

    I did that clay pigeon shooting a good few years ago Nan, while on a business trip to Wisconsin. I was aked by one of the factory staff if there as something i would like to do while i was there. And i asked them was it possible to go to a gun range?

    Apparently, there wasnt one near to where we where staying, but they had the clay pigeon shooting a few miles away. So we went out there for a couple of hours and shot our hearts out, lol. I had never shot a shotgun before (but have used hand guns), and it was described to me as an over and under (like dave described earlier, and must be something to do with inexperience, @David Rohrer? ). The chap i was visiting Wisconsin with was from a gun club in Ireland, and prided himself on his shooting.

    We went around twice, with something like 10 posts to shoot from in each round. My favourite was what they described as a rabbit run, where the disc ran along the ground. But the best part for me was that i outshot the chap who was with me, and hit more targets than him, including the rabbit run, twice, lol. Loved it.

    WIsh we could go on a shoot together JImmy, and let the amateurs show the experts how it's done hahaha
  • Nanny OggNanny Ogg Growing Old DisgracefullyPosts: 10,472 Pool Forum Veteran
    Oh yes and btw, the guy who organised the shoot, much like your guy, also thought he was the bees knees with a shotgun, and when he came second to me in the overall rankings he was not a happy chappy LOL
    In fact after that day he never actually spoke to me again :D
