That’s pretty classy. Thank you and I look forward to other discussions.

The ownership and operation of firearms can be considered a hobby, by some... Not to mention, an occupation: I served as armed patrol in the Navy - presumably to uphold our constitution. Fired all kinds of cool stuff, .45 cal 1911, M14, shotgun, and full auto stuff such as the M60, and Browning .50 cal.

I used to love target shooting with my own pistols, rifles, shotguns... even the really evil looking, so - called "assault" ones that you see in the movies or on video games (I'm not a gamer, but am told of this). Too bad all of my firearms were lost in a tragic boating accident.

Maybe some day they will do a search like they did for the Titanic and find the Infamous "Lost Smitty Weapons Ordnance" When did the Edmund FitzSmitty go down ;) :Drink:

Canada, the country settled by “remittance men”.
Riverboater, I read everything you said and still don’t know what Canada is so afraid of concerning hand guns.

He's the plan, Most western Canadians want to be left alone. So the US will buy BC, Yukon, Northwest Territory, Alberta, and anyone else that wants away from the bullshit. We give all of them Second Amendments rights. We will drop ship a bunch Democrats north to eastern Canada to balance out the change. :Drink: :Drink: :Drink: :Drink: :Drink:

Hand guns are fine but it is hard to beat a 12ga. for all round protection. Until recently we really didn't have to much worry about having to pack concealed to protect ourselves. Yes things are changing in the land of peace and may have to be addressed in the future.

Two things, firstly, I never called you a mindless moron but I understand how confusing words can be.
Secondly, I would much rather be a subject of the crown than a paid for lackey of the Russian president.

Let us remember that if we all had the same opinions on controversial subjects, same life circumstances, the same boats, the same income, and ran the same rivers - this place would be boring.

The one thing I really notice and maybe its because I'm a Canadian is that "pro gun" Us citizens are very rigid with their line of thought. There is zero compromise in their train of thought. Its one way or the other. There is no middle ground or meeting somewhere in between. But its also a huge cultural difference. The US is a gun culture. In Canada, if you see a handgun holstered on a hip of some random dude, he is a plain clothed cop. In the US, could be any old Joe, and know one would bat an eye. Americans and Canadian just look at guns differently.

I disagree, It probably looks that way from the outside because the majority who see it from a middle perspective don't want to waste time and energy arguing it on the internet with people who aren't going to budge in either direction. And it doesn't help that neither side can defend their points with out embellishing things or flat out lying about facts or making up stupid statistics. If this country could ever learn how to deal with issues using the truth and actual facts we might actually get somewhere productive. The majority really aren't that rigid, they just don't make for great news story's or help to push a particular agenda.
