It seems like there is much passion on both sides. So if you are in favor of guns, where does your view come from- sport, collector, protection?
Anti-gun, same question for you... where does your view come from? Experience, fear of injury....?
I am not sure where I am on this issue, so I thought I would get feedback from those passionate one way or another.

"sport, collector, protection," all three, plus putting food on the table.
"I don't get why sportsmen think they need something semi-automatic for hunting....if you can't get Bambi with a standard shotgun maybe you need another hobby. But I'm sure there's things I don't know."
1-I'm left-handed, most rifles and shotguns are bolt-action which can't be operated left-handed. So I own a semi-auto 3006. My semi-auto only shoots one bullet, just like my DH's bolt-action. My semi-auto shotgun holds 3 shots, my DH's double-barreled shot gun holds 2. You are confusing semi-autos with fully automatic weapons. They are no way the same thing.
2-You don't shoot mule deer or elk with shotguns. A full-grown bull elk is HUGE. Shotguns are usually used for bird hunting.
Just FYI. :-)

I have no interest in owning a gun and my husband does not want one. We believe in everyone who is not a criminal having the right to keep and bear arms. There should not be restrictions other than for felons or the mentally ill who have been proven to be a danger. Gun control only helps criminals and will not stop crime or murder rates.
