All NRA?Members Aren’t Extremists

March 11, 2013

To the Readers’ Forum: Recently I read in The Post-Journal, the article ‘‘Hunters Are Silenced in Gun Debate.’’ It started out all right, at least the first 35 words....

Gary,I believe what you say about gun ownership to be true. Seems no one can come up with a plan that will quiet the phobes,well here's one. All those who do not have firearms must register at their local municipality. That way the police will know who needs protection from forced entry or any other illegal activity.They would have far less people to watch over knowing who had guns in their homes and who didn't. The criminal who enters a house where there is gun ownership by nys law the owner must retreat,retreat right to your gun cabinet, and exercise your right of self-defense. No brutality to his family no rape of his wife or children,no crime, just a dead criminal!! One less for you phobes to worry about raping or murdering one of you sheep!!!!!!!

zurug-M60? Really? They're antiques outside museums or used for target practice. I suspected you were my age. That confirms it. (M-48A1 driver)

I find much to agree with in the piece. Polls show that 3 of every 4 NRA members agree that something has to be done, to reduce gun violence in our country.

Correct Gio, its just that those 3 out of 4 feel that to solve gun violence, arm yourself and shot the bad guys. I guarantee that i no way, do they want gun violence resolved by taking away gun rights. I think everyone agrees that something needs to be done, they just have very differing opinions on how to do it.

Here we go again... From the outside world "non NRA, don't give a darn about guns" The NRA and the majority of "Gun Owners" make it sound like those of us that don't like guns want to take them away from you. I don't care about your guns other than...a) Large size magazines. (no need for 5 or more). b) Fast shooting guns, I guess there called semi-automatic. c) Not registered. When you say you don't want your guns registered (like vehicles) what you appear to be saying is that you are hiding something.

Well zed...when all of us legal gun owners are in afghanistan protecting your liberties from terrorists, the unregistered gun owners....aka criminals, will have a field day with those who are left behind. Good luck with that.

Tone it down a bit and come to the table to solve the problem instead of arguing all of the time!

Who will initiate the mental health evaluations? The same teachers who suspend a kid for a picture, or food that that might kinda look like a gun? The ones who think students exposed to such "trauma" might need the counseling provided by a union job seeking justification for existence?

Gary doesn't mention what type of guns he uses which is the core of this debate.

Busti470, if you were going to protect someone, by whom would that be?

50, what don't I know about guns? THEY KILL, you jerk. What more do I need to know?

Right there is what is wrong with you and others.

Since, "I don't know about guns" start educating me and others!

Howie, what difference does the type of gun make? PWU, what is your justification in determining high capacity or fast shooting? These are all political buzzwords being used to mobilize the part of the populace that has absolutely no knowledge of firearms or how they function. Also, to all of you, how do any of the new laws prevent CRIMINALS from getting weapons and committing crimes and not just infringe on the rights of law abiding gun owners? Hint: THEY DON'T!

PWU, look up "World Record 12 shots in 3 seconds" on youtube and tell me that the whole semi-automatic issue is not just a myth to push a political agenda.

Loan, we can have a "honest,intelligent discussion" if you were willing to have one. All you ever do say that the "far left / liberal" is wrong. Clear your mind of sides and have a discussion. I look forward to your change of attitude not just here but in all discussions.
