Wow, took me a while to read through this thread. (Oh god I hope big **** is not monitoring this) but hear goes! Now as a gun owner I do support the constitutional right to keep and bare arms. And yes as a gun owner they are all locked up. I also have educated everyone that handles my guns to their responsibility to be a good citizen in exercising their rights. I also believe that especially kids that are given mind altering drugs to compensate for mental issues should in no way be given access to fire arms. Are you in your right mind allowing a mixed up **** access to a fire arm. Sorry Andy, my friend who actually has no kids is rabid for his rights. No it is a responsibility of a gun owner to maintain control of his or her firearms, it is your right and responsibility to maintain control. Business is not just business. I have survived two mass killings!!!!!!! one by 50 feet and one by 25 feet!!!!! No chance to use a concealed weapon. Glad I didn't have one on me. I just managed to get away. I believe the police response is generally over the top. I will argue that topic with my FBI friend later.
I respect my friends who do not own a gun that I had taught to shoot, but chastise for saying I know where to get a gun if I need one and the SHTF. I find it funny that they believe I will be in my City home waiting for them to show up to get their loner gun and ammo. Sorry Caitlin you don't get one.
As for the rest of the chatter sorry I can't follow that shit. I love you all dearly and would love to fuck you all in the ass men and women the rest of the dribble is just that.

As to a foot note. how do some, clearly not all, but how do the kids get guns??? Some are acquired by arcane rules others by lack of understanding and resistance of simple rules. Yeah as a **** I had my 22 in my closet. Ammo on the shelf. Never once did I think of taking it and using it outside the set rules. I worked at a chicken farm and shot rats for ten cents a rat. Yeah I got paid sometimes in eggs, or a chicken. OK a different world. I'd ride my bike to work and a cop would stop me to chat. Officer Murphy, Hey buddy, on your way to work? Yes sir. got to stop those rats. Shoot straight, boy. He drove off, no fuss. Stopping a 12 year old with a rifle slung over his shoulder. Give me those time again.
I tell those stories and make adults cry. Younger adults than me. I have helped many, but I can't help all.
