Seriously though,

I am an example of one of those "typical gun-toting Americans" SteelersMongol. I own a few weapons myself. Some are for home defense, some are for plinking and targeting, but the vast majority of mine are for hunting. One weapon does not allow me to pursue the wide variety of game that I enjoy hunting. Different situations call for different applications, therefore different weapons.

I have never committed a crime and I have faithfully served my country's military for more than 20 years. I truly do not believe I am a threat to society.
.....Mark me down as owning 3 .....as of now.

Keep in mind; were it not for an armed civilian populace, neither this wonderful United States of America, nor my beloved Texas would have won their independance.
What some miss... is that the right to bear arms was for the purpose of the populace being able to defend itself against its own government if necessary.

I'm neutral on the issue, but given this information, I'd think twice (maybe even 3 times) if I was a foreign power considering invading the US!

I couldn't go into my backyard at night without seeing one or two of them digging for bugs, and they would not leave for anything! I threw 5 lb. weights at them and they showed me their ass!

Not much of a gun, but it's perfect for what I need.
Better be careful, you might shoot an eye out.



Just for the record I'm a big hunter and the # of guns I own could be considered a small arsenal.

There are nine guns for every 10 people in the United States, with about 270 million firearms in circulation, according to a report released Tuesday.
