... just responding to this is sufficient to understand the guns-lovers' mentality.Because it's a sport that many responsible people enjoy and doesn't cause any issues. ...
So it appears there's no other "sport" in this world such that "responsible" gun owners can enjoy? Interesting. And exactly what is that "sport"? Like knowing who can shoot the most bull-eyes at the gun ranges? You know that gets boring after awhile ... unlike formula car-racing, bungjee-jumping, or how about throwing crxps at the table? At least the chances of somebody "else" getting hurt is minimal with the latters ... whereas yes "responsible" gun owners don't ... loses their guns, sell to the blackmarket, shoot some bears or dears for fun (if not people when pissed off) despite the entire country is covered with rats.
