2. Last photo, the Bushmaster ad

that says, 'consider your man card reissued.' Flies in the face of all the protests to the contrary that the gun culturalists have been spouting all this time

Armaments dealers know what appeals to those who feel their manhood needs 'augmentation.'

4. Gee, I never realized how much fun me and my kids were missing out on.

(sarcasm, just in case...)

I knew i would never own a gun when I was about 9 or 10 and I saw the neighbor kids shooting at blue jays with their new bb guns. My children are young adults now and have not complained that they never got to play with guns.

7. I remember my neighbor shooting a squirrel with a bb gun from his upstairs window and watching

the squirrel hanging down by it's front feet till it finally (seemed like an eternity) fell to it's death. I was soooo upset...I still just visualize the whole incident as if it happened yesterday and that was at least 60 years ago.

8. Back in 1957 Dad gave me a shotgun.

I was eleven back then. We lived in the country and I went hunting by myself. I grew up with guns. Every family I knew had them. It wasn't any big deal. They were tools that we respected.

Earlier, I remember playing with some realisitic looking guns. Kid Westerns were popular back then so many of the toy guns had Old West styling.
