    I own a Remington model 700 .270cal rifle, a J.C.Higgins .270 cal with Mauser action, a Browning "Sweet 16", a Spanish made 16ga O/U, a Ruger 9mm and a Gamo .177cal air-rifle. I have taken game from deer, to squirrel, to rabbit, to grouse and not once have I needed an assault rifle to bring down any game.

    There is no need to use assault weapons for hunting purposes, unless you want to spoil alot of meat. The only folks I know who actually buy such things are collectors who have no intention of ever using them for anything, and those suffering from severe cases of testosterone poisoning. As for the collectors, there are still plenty of weapons available that were grandfathered in under the old assault-weapons ban. As for the testosterone poisoned, they need to grow up before they're allowed anywhere near a weapon.

    Says who? You?? Attitudes like that - especially among government officials - is why the Second Amendment is there in the first place.

    You might need one to protect you from a drunk and belligerent bear!

    Hunting is something that fathers do with thier sons. I went hunting with my father from as young as I could go and used a gun as soon as I could shoot a .410. These are some of the best memories I have. Someday my son will hunt with me. Hunting is an important part of American culture and must be kept alive. I would rather eat nothing but wild meat if I could. It is the healthiest possible meat for me and my family.

    Guns in general should be understood by everyone. They are very dangerous, but so is an automobile, and I don't see anyone trying to ban them. Guns are fun, I'm sorry, but they are. And I don't have a testosterone problem. I cry sometimes.

    A 9mm loaded with wadcutters, 15 in the clip and one in the hole, will do the trick quite nicely

    It is hard for those of us that grew up around guns, respecting them, using them for pleasure and for hunting, etc. to understand why the libs are, in general, so anti-gun.

    Having been a recent victim of a home burglary, I would like to have an Uzi handy for any future intruders in the house. Hell, at this point, I'll take an M60, even if it does tear up the walls! :firing:
