[quote=]"SethBullock" So I take it bolt action rifles are permitted. Is that right? What about shotguns? Are any handguns permitted?[/quote]

We have bolt action and lever action rifles, single action shotguns and also lever action. There are many hand gun clubs, that's what my club is, we have semi auto pistols and revolvers which have to fit into a category of use that we indulge in. Our club has silhouettes, paper target, western action and service pistol sections which covers all pistol sport shooting. I have a carry licence because of my security licence, yet never carried the relevant pistols more than a couple of times.

Yes.

That's truly what many Americans believe.

According to a poll by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal, 58 percent of Americans agree with the statement that “gun ownership does more to increase safety by allowing law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.

Unbelievable.

Oh, I believe it.

I also believe all the data which proves that owning a gun in the US doesn't make you safer.

In my state, we passed the "shall issue" concealed carry law in 1989. Before that law, whether or not a person could carry a concealed weapon was purely up to the local sheriff in whose jurisdiction you lived. The 1989 law provided that if a person passed a background check and took a safety/familiarization class, the sheriff had to issue the permit to carry. In 1989 the murder rate in my state was 4.8/100,000. Today, it is 2.5.

The thing is, you can only count the number of incidents that occur. What you can't count are all the incidents that don't occur. But criminals in this state have to be wary because there are a lot of law-abiding citizens carrying concealed weapons who are out and about, including women, and many people who don't have concealed carry permits do have firearms for home defense in their homes. If you're a criminal thinking about pulling a street robbery, or a carjacking, or a home invasion, or a rape, you're taking a tremendous risk. And they know it too.

Bong, blacks don't do all the gun crime in America. They do a disproportionate amount of it, but not all of it.

Maybe you're right... or maybe make it harder for blacks to talk shite on the radio to their black bruthers about blowing each other to kingdom come?

Maybe make it harder for blacks to talk shite about biatches all apparently being biatches on the radio, let alone MTV let alone giving them prime time television acting jobs after they spent decades doing exactly that and worse i.e. talking about killing cops as the title of their album.

You're not the only person with an opinon ya f'n weirdo!!

If they have a legitimate reason to own and use a gun then yes, just to own a gun, no there's no need in a country like ours. Gun owners have to fit into certain categories here, like hunting and then you have to prove you have somewhere to hunt and the permission of the owner of the land to hunt. Farmers, for controlling feral animals and putting injured animals down. Sporting shooters, members of a registered shooting club and security operators. Other than that, no one should have access to a gun.

All gun owners have to have their gun security at home inspected regularly, plus there are other storage requirements you must address to keep your guns.
