being a hunter does not make any one a competent gun owner

it might be a slightly better excuse than "my precious" by itself.
But I suspect that most people who know a dozen hunters, know that at least a couple of them are irresponsible and that makes them dangerous.

My recollection from my teen years when I lived in the country was the hunters gathering for Morning Services before dawn.
I knew to stay out of the woods during hunting season because my neighborhood hunters were juiced before daybreak.

So instead of thinking of your own wonderful self when you think of the need to prevent gun control, think of the idiots you know who own guns. Because you are enabling the idiots as well as fine upstanding people like yourself.

3. Gotta agree. I know of many who have shot themselves in the foot

or fallen out of tree stands.

2. In my experience most of the idiot hunters are one-day-a-year hunters from Suburbia

We rural hunters hate them exactly because a lot of them are dangerous numbskulls.

But this is in Minnesota, the culture is probably different, elsewhere.

4. I was living in the country among farmers

not visiting one-day-a-year hunters.

There are plenty of rural fools, just like there are suburban fools, or urban fools.

7. Hence my caveat about my experience being limited to Minnesota.

Upper-middle class people from exurban communities NW of the Twin Cities (the same idiots who elected crazy-ass Bachmann) have a really bad reputation, here.

8. I'd agree with you that the once in the year types are more risky

overall because they don't have the experience and they are trying to make sure they take full advantage of their
once in a year opportunity which makes them a little trigger happy.

But I know plenty of rural fools, and those fools tend to be worse when they are young or under the influence.

5. Ever see a road sigh in the country that wasn't

shot to hell by buckshot?

6. I'm not saying that rural folks are somehow endowed with more common sense

than the rest of us.

Especially now with meth
