Again, it's imposing on the rights of Americans in general to uphold thet erdiculous secund mend munt rits.

Mr. Donat,

It seems apparent that you are not sufficiently prepared to take part in this sort of conversation.

Secondarily, but even more important to me, your innuendo disparaging the Rights and beliefs of Americans, completely unsupported as it is, is offensive to civilized people.

You should have used the word 'secondly' and not 'secondarily'.

It can't be secondarily if it's even more important to you. That would make it primarily. Secondly would have been correct but you tried to flower up a good sentence and you screwed it up.

Fine, take off points.

What about the context? Could you understand what I said? Can you respond to it?

No. I couldn't understand it because it contained a contradiction. You'll have to clear that up first.

Sure, here's the important part-

I'm pretty confident it's usually true. Even most hunters grow out of wanting to hunt and kill animals.

Most gungoons won't even own up to wanting to kill animals with their guns. They will try to have you believe that the meat is healthier. And then when you tell them that the cost is probably 10 times the cost of good beef, they will invent special circumstances for them that make it cheaper.

I've been there. If you haven't then you're not old enough yet.

I speak for experience because I did it before I grew out of it. And I admit that it's human to want to kill. It's just that the need can be reasoned away with maturity.

What do you think?

Actually, I have never hunted a single time in my life.  For several reasons.  Mainly because when I see a beautiful animal living in the wild, my first thought isn't to shoot it.  I think I would feel very bad afterdoing that.  Secondarily because there's always a possibility of wounding the animal and losing track of it so it would suffer before it died. 

I don't discount animal rights activists as nutjobs.  I just prioritize re-securing rights for humans.  Once that is done, I'll be happy to listen to arguments about other mammals having rights.

I eat meat, so I'm not claiming any moral high ground.  I know many hunters and they are very  nice folks.  I would certainly hunt before I let my family go hungry if those were my options. 

But, my guns are not for hunting animals.  They are for preventing tyrants and criminals from violating my right to life and all rights that support my right to life.

Really? Haven't you heard that having guns to protect yourself and your family just increases your chances of getting yourself or your family shot ina burglary?

Or were you more concerned about the Russian coming?  Roll Eyes

Not in my experience. What I've seen in my lifetime is that hunting is being made into a rich man's sport. More and more, hunters must either own the land they hunt on, or lease someone eles's land, or hunt the King's animals with permission on the King's land.

IOW if you make it expensive and difficult to hunt, fewer people will do it.

The unfortunate part of it is that tax money is often used to hire 'professional' animal killers to come in and kill the animals that hunters weren't allowed to. Large herds of Whitetail deer in the suburbs are destructive and dangerous. Hunting them is forbidden. Paying 'professionals' to kill them is deemed 'better'.

Everybody has heard that. Its a way to lie by only talking about part of the reality.

What about the fact that having guns decreases your chance of being burgled? What about the women alone who prevent burglars from raping them by having guns?

My advice to single women and (old people) is to have a pump shotgun and a pistol. If you hear noises in your house that frighten you, rack a shell into the shotgun. If the noises continue, shoot the pistol in a safe direction (which you should think about before hand... if nothing else, a five gallon bucket of dirt can provide a 'safe direction' to shoot).

The chance that a burglar will still be in your house is now vanishingly small.
