Automatic weapons have been banned for some time (not that they arenít still available on the street if you have the means). I own a number of semi-automatic shotguns for hunting. In my instance, as many others I know, itís not an ďobsessionĒ nor a means to commit crimes. We use them lawfully. I realize many donít understand nor want to, but I donít want to lose my privilege of owning and using the guns I have in a lawful manner.

    Would it be possible to reopen the Politics thread if we all promise to play nice?

    IMO, not doing so is just non-sense and stupidness.

    You would try to change things if your kids were killed with guns. So why not doing anything when there are so many mass shootings?
    I'm an American and I feel the exact same way.

    It's just unbelievable how all the thoughts and prayers everyone put out the last 100 times this happened just didn't seem to help.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Coming soon to a theater near you!

    Kramer versus Kramer, the Sea Quail!

    Starring Jonny Deep and Ambeer Head

    Perch on the edge of your sticky movie-house seat as you watch this feuding botanical couple try to save these endangered birds as they are analyzed to literal death by a bevy of wild-eyed, irrational, spooky-haired bird whisperers whose intentions are good but whose results vary from hilarious to downright fowl!

    No one with an IQ of over 25 admitted.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    I went outside this morning to walk my dog and fill the bird feeder, and behold and lo! the neighbor to the South was not running the compressor that makes his used car lot big wavery thing flap all night long every spring and summer night to scare the deer away from his garden and fruit trees, the neighbor to the North was not using his leaf blower or running the loud engine of his tractor for hours on end, the neighbors across the street had turned off their extremely bright, piercing porch light that lights up half my yard during the winter and which hurts my eyes to look at, and the neighbor to the South-East had stopped playing live rock and roll music which I could hear in every room in my house last night.
    At least the neighbor to the East died so he doesn't fly his airplanes across the back of my yard anymore (yes, real airplanes from the hanger he built on his property and which sounded like a million lawn mowers running every time they took off.

    It was kind of like...Paradise!

    At the same time, most of these people have done me favors in the past (excluding the pilot and the rock 'n roll star), and when I talk to them I get along with them quite well.

    And so I magni...magnano...magne...very nicely forgive them!

    At least until they come outside and start all over again!

    Darn...I forgot to mention the shotgun blasts...maybe next time!

    I am over the moon with a dream come true... I have ALWAYS dreamed of going to San Diego Comic Con. Tried for MANY years and its impossible to get tickets if you are aware... it is sooo hard. My wife tried for YEARS to surprise me. No luck. Fast forward to now and I am going to sit on a panel about Stephen King to speak in front of an audience on the Rare Book market. To say this is an honor is an understatement. The panel is a who's who of the King world too... a literal dream come true for me. I not only have a VIP pass but a Presenter Pass so I will have a full weeks pass to EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!! I still cannot believe it....

    What exactly, if a may, are you hunting? And no one has said they will take your military weapons, just keep 18 -20 year olds from buying them.

    In my area mostly deer and turkeys and the occasional predators like fox or coyote.
    I donít even own any military type weapons. But they start talking about banning one thing, then it moves to all semi-automatics like some other countryís have done. I agree with background checks and raising the age to 21. Those are things that make sense.

    Thanks.
    Probably just me - I think of all AR "type" rifles as military. Must be from remembering Viet Nam when they were the newish thing on the block for the army.

    I donít own any AR type guns. I do have a .223 bolt action rifle which is the same caliber as the AR-15. I personally donít see the need for them in a hunting situation. I preach learning how to shoot and only needing one shot, not having to use a semi-auto and just throwing bullets at your target hoping one hits.
