Okay-My Take on Gun Control.


On a regular basis, someone will ask me what I think about gun control. Most are amazed at my answer. You see, I do not care. It is not about gun control. It is about control. Period. Guns are just the current vehicle. To make legislation more palatable, the focus is on “assault weapons”, the ones the gangstas hold sideway and spray bullets everywhere.


You can ban the sale of various types of firearms. You can ban the sale of large capacity magazines. It does not matter. That is not what gets innocent people killed. All of the rational arguments explaining this are useless because it is not about guns. It is about control.

Any of the recent atrocities could have been committed by anyone using any of the legal firearms or any of the illegal ones. All politicians and various groups have to espouse gun control because that is what is expected. I am not even sure if the shooter in the latest shooting was even using an assault weapon. As I understand it, it was in his car’s trunk and was a shotgun. Does not matter. He had one. Case closed.

I do not care if they ban “assault” weapons. Just what is an assault weapon? Is it any firearm with a pistol grip, folding stock and looks super deadly neat. That is what they always show on television as the weapon used no matter if it was or not? If I take a super sharp machete and whack about 20 people into parts, would that be an assault weapon? What possible difference does it make if a rifle fires one time each time you pull the trigger or just once every time you work a loading action? So my rifle only holds four bullets. So what? I can shoot eight people before anyone can do anything about it. That should qualify as an atrocity, I would think.

I am in favor of strict background checks. Of course, for the most part, they do no good. Heroin is illegal but it doesn’t keep anyone who wants it from getting it. I favor stricter penalties and for sure stricter enforcement. However, I also know it will not do any good when the court puts the miscreant back on the street in two weeks. No doubt about guilt? Instant execution. But hell, I’m as radical as the other side.

When people go crazy and are serious about doing insane things, you are not going to stop them by banning an “assault” weapon. You stop them by diagnosing them in advance and locking them up. Sound cold, harsh and cruel? Sounds effective to me. Shut them up where they can do no harm.

For a real long time.

These terrible acts are committed by three kinds of people: The insane, the gang type (insane in my book.) and the internally dead, hardened criminal. All three types can and will get assault weapons, large capacity magazines and all the ammunition they want.

Just as they do now.

I also favor professional, trained armed guards at schools. I am opposed to just arming teachers who “took a course”. There are plenty of retired and newly discharged military out there needing work and they are trained and are proficient with most types of firearms. Moreover, they can and will shoot first if need be. Pay them and pay them well with some of that money we are wasting in the Middle East. Do not just arm a teacher who has never looked down the sights at a live human being. Pay someone trained to make instant decisions of life or death.

I own no illegal firearms or large capacity magazines. I have never had a need for them. I do not enjoy shooting tin cans or paper targets and they are not my choice for hunting. I have all I need for hunting and home defense. I fully intend to keep them…whatever it takes to do so. I feel secure that no United States elected official would be as foolish as to espouse coming in my house or any legal residence and demanding our firearms. That won’t fly here in the U.S. of A. don’t matter who is president.

Understand something. Should I go further off my rocker than some think I am, I could kill half of Lebanon with just what I have. I would not need an assault weapon or a 30-round magazine. In 1966, a seriously troubled, former Marine, Charles Whitman, sat in the tower on the University of Texas campus and one shot at a time with a simple deer rifle killed 14 people and wounded 32 others before police were able to reach him. He shot them at long range, a far longer range than most can accurately shoot an assault rifle. He just took his time and picked his targets, snacking as he did so. I recall it well because I was in Austin at the time.

Any hunter with moderate training and practice could easily hide and pick off unsuspecting people at 300-yards. A few years ago, a group of us shot at playing cards at 400 yards…and hit them. Let me add, we were and are, perfectly sane, normal men and women. Think what you could do to a crowded downtown street. You don’t need an assault weapon unless you are going to fight a drug cartel or combat gang violence. (Hmmm, let me think about that for a minute.) However, there is no legitimate reason for banning them. Due to this most recent panic, the American public has slowly become as well armed as the criminals. The hunting public is already by far, the largest army in the world.

Gun control is a joke. It does nothing to control violent, senseless crime. Mexico has some of the strictest gun laws I know of. Yet, in Mexico, a day with only a few hundred or so murders is a slow day. Juarez is averaging about 30 a day according to the last figures I saw. Try selling gun control to the cartels. Then, while you are at it, ask where they got their guns. However, as I said, that common sense approach to offset gun control does not work because common sense is not a factor.

I do not fear or worry about gun control. I fear what is happening to our country. I fear what my children and grandchildren will inherit, Heck; I fear what I am going inherit in just the next few years. But gun control is of little concern to me. Anyone will still be able to buy or sell anything they want.

I agree with most of what you wrote. In discussion about "banning" my thought from the get go was if someone is crazy enough to shoot people it makes no difference to them whether they can get 5 shots off or 30. I doubt very seriously that they'd rationalize and opt out of an attempt because they didn't have a 30 shot clip.

Where we differ is I do care about the ban. I don't own "assault" weapons and don't care to. But if there was a total ban and no one had them when the crazy people in this world continue to murder at will the cry will be that they didn't do enough and then they'll want to take what I do have...and what you have.

The ONLY part that bothers me is you seem to say you don't care about OUR Second Amendment rights. Maybe I read it wrong but you do say you are fine with YOUR guns.

To me the Second Amendment means just what it says and NOWHERE does it say anything about hunting or target shooting.

Banning a weapon from law abiding Americans is wrong wither they have the so called assault weapon or not. Those same people have Glocks that hold more than 10 rounds.

The outdoors show that was postphoned did it because of most of the people and business that was suppose to be there pulled out at great cost to them, ever archery people pulled out because they understood that the Second Amednment was met for us all no mater the firearms we choose to have.

Again John,

So you dont care if they ban my assault rifles as long as they do
not ban your hunting guns and your home protection guns?

I can kind of see where you're coming from in this article. The jist of which it really doesn't matter if things are banned they're still going to be had. And that if you really felt the need to own a high cap mag or a spooky black rifle - then you'd just get one. And I hope that is really what you're meaning. Because if not then you are WAAAAAAY off base with your logic. This complacent attitude of I really don't care what rights get taken away from others as long as it doesn't affect be directly is grossly wrong.

Shall not be infringed means just that - shall not be infringed.

I really hope you didn't publish that article.

i disagree about not arming teachers. i am a teacher and have shot more rounds that most cops and military personnel. you just cant put any ol joe in a school to interact with kids. and unlike cops and most military personnel, teachers have to have at a minimum a bachelors degree (most have masters, or Eds) and pass a battery of tests and due asupervised internship (student teaching and practicum) before they are thrust into a school environment.

Having dealt with the Mainstream Media for years, that article will be vivisected and replayed, to show that 'Hunters" do not care about keeping their semiautomatic weapons.

We had better all listen to the song leader and get on the same page, or they are going to have us defending our homes with rocks.

It is already illegal for you to use a club in Tennessee as a defensive tool, you can not carry one with your for defense, much less a firearm or knife. Your paid for Handgun Carry Permit is simply a defense against prosecution, and is that is at the discretion of your local DA.

As long as the police have semis and large capacity magazines, it is my right in Tennessee to have them.

Sam Adams said it much better than me:

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

On a subject such as this, especially coming from someone such as Bowriter, being put forth to the public, I think it should come across a little clearer than mud.

JMO though.

I have had the Commercial Appeal pull sentences out of my articles before, and they will do it with this one. It will be impossible to defend a stance that "hunter" is all for banning assault weapons and and semiautomatic firearm, doing just as the Liberals are destroying the republican party by pitting them against each other, they will fall upon this like it is manna from Heaven. They have people paid to read our sites every day.

I'll not go into the whole thing but perhaps this excerpt from another column will make it more clear. If not, then you will just have to think whatever you want.

...As I have said before, I am not concerned about banning assault weapons because the whole thing is not about guns. It is about control, it is about taking away of rights. Guns just happens to be the vehicle it is tied to...

That is an axcerpt from an article I did on the ESOS boycott.

You dont have to read between the lines.Just read the lines.

He says it more than once.

He doesnt care if they ban "assault" weapons.

Meaning he doent care about our 2nd amandment.

As long as his guns are not envolved, he doesnt care.

Looks like YOU were reading between the lines on the othet thread and now you accuse others of doing what you did.

Go back a couple day ago to the thread about the sports show getting canceled. John told it like it was, how all those people lost a ton of money from pulling out. Ever ARCHERY guys pulled out supporting the AR's. John hit it 100% right then but here he's off track.

The trouble I and other seem to have with John's article is he DID say he doesn't care about the AR ban. He should have worded it better. How many times have I warned about the "wording" in bills before Congress?? It's all in the wording. John being a writer knows that.

John got it right about one thing and I fully agree, it's about control. Last year handguns of all kinds killed more people than the AR's did, far more. All of our guns are next and you all full well know it.

I do not hunt with a bow, but when the powers that be line up to remove the ability of others to do so, I will not be found guilty of saying because I do not own one, never saw the use in having one, I have high powered sniper rifles that I can load 4 rounds in which will do a much better job of taking game humanely etc. so just go ahead and ban them, I do not care.

Instead, I will stand with my brothers who want to own them because it is their RIGHT to do so.

I think you guys are misinterpreting his words . In my interpretation he is saying he doesn't care if it's an assault weapons only ban , because the ban is about control . And they will not stop with that . I agree if you take some words out you can manipulate it to say what you want .

I think you guys are misinterpreting his words . In my interpretation he is saying he doesn't care if it's an assault weapons only ban , because the ban is about control . And they will not stop with that . I agree if you take some words out you can manipulate it to say what you want .


You made my point. You "worded" it better.

why do the weak and scared want to call an automatic weapon an "assault weapon/rifle" is this because you want to assault someone, think about it, in the eyes of the proper person its only an "semi-automatic", the assault "word" in the eyes of a true sportsman has been created by the media

On a regular basis, someone will ask me what I think about gun control. Most are amazed at my answer.

ROTFLMAO!!!

Ok what do you consider to be an "assault" rifle? An AR-15? Ruger Mini 14 or 30? If you do you are wrong, those weapons are semiauto, they lack the fire selector and do not have the parts necessary to fire more than one round with each pull of the trigger. The word "assault" is actually an action. Just like they are "assaulting" our 2nd amendment rights. A ban on any of our weapons is unconstitutional and should therefore be reguarded as treason. All of you that "do not care" should realize the corruption and hypocrisy behind all this. You think they'll just stop with what they call "assault" weapons? No they will try to go farther. You give them an inch, they will take a mile. I am not a sheep and I will not bow down. Wake Up America!
