No worries, mate! FWIW, I don't recall ever attacking you...but merely questioning your misconceptions regarding American gun rights.

There is no innocent victim where a good steak is concerned. If God didn't want us to eat meat, he wouldn't have equipped us with incisors.

Justa_Poser My wife is an extraordinary woman.

And, she takes good care of me.


I awoke early one morning and was all set for my favorite breakfast of bacon and eggs.
We ran out of bacon.
How depressing.


You know that she couldn't bear to see me like this and so she went out in search for bacon.
And she searched. And then she searched some more.
And then she discovered that there was a severe bacon shortage.



She never gives up..... and she's VERY resourceful.....

This continued for many years and then one day, they said that they could no longer accept any meat that didn't come from a regular butcher shop.

It is unfortunate, even churches need to be aware of exposing themselves to legal issues. In our church, this became a rather daunting possibility with the fund raising dinners, and breakfasts and so on that we had.

Justa_Poser I worked in a butcher shop in my younger days and still apply those skills during game season (s).


We used to provide a couple of the local Churches with wild game - all neatly cut, wrapped, frozen and labeled. We even provided them with freezers to store the meat.


This continued for many years and then one day, they said that they could no longer accept any meat that didn't come from a regular butcher shop.


So now, we shoot many more paper targets than wild game, as the trash can isn't picky as to the paper that it accepts. A half day of "target shooting" is still as satisfying as it ever was.

It's true,



We have cows, and they all have names. And it's those cute little names that the Wife gave them. Pet names.

Couldn't be eating one of those, now could we?

Actually, he's wrong. Your "Guns or god..." heading isn't an attack, but is merely an observation, and you answered his question, you didn't attack him so that the topic (or anything) could be avoided.



Lefty owes you an appology for his false accusation.

Checking on my subscriptions and reading the progress of this thread and I'm amused that Lefty STILL has no understanding of ad hominem and when it applies and doesn't (it doesn't here). After 'schooling' him on it countless times he still is trying to impress people that he learned the term, (he didn't) and by falsely accusing them of applying it to him.


Stupid comparisons:
  • Guns and cars in regard to their necessity and situations where death is involved—Knives and guns for the same reason.
  • Vehicle deaths compared to deaths by guns. Humans need cars to survive in today's world, the same can't be said for personal weapons.
Comparing deaths by "booze" to guns simply demonstrates a total lack of understanding of the topic or more likely a willingness to display poorly thought out reason as evidence. When is the last time someone went on a boozing spree, killing innocent victims? Gimme a break!



In regard to killing for sport? Who's business is it when others do something we consider wrong behavior? Everyone's. I agree with Bikerbob1 "killing anything as a "sport" is somehow the product of a twisted mind." I think "twisted mind" is bit harsh here and self-deluded is more often the case. Hunters proud of their kills aren't performing necessary evils, (helping keep populations down) so who are they fooling with the grinning photos and the bragging about scopes and shot distance? PL-E-E-E-A-A-S-E!



Imagine if there were no people willing to slaughter animals for sport? How would the planet's animal populations ever survive??? How did they survive before man???
Ever hear of animal sterilization?



If we want to do something we shouldn't be doing, it's amazing how adept we are at finding reasons for them!
