83. Not so sure about gender
and what your point is about men carrying babies? To your other point though...

Just because someone owns a gun, does not make them a killer that likes to look their victims in the eyes as their life drains away.

That, I think is what this post is all about. I am not a killer, exact opposite. Yet I own a gun. Why?

My story. When I was little, a relative put a 22 caliber pistol in my hands and said, "see that tin can top nailed to that tree?, see if you can hit it."

We were standing on a porch and the tree was twenty paces away. About 40 feet.

I nailed it 3 out of six times. He was besides himself. I was thrilled. I had done something even he could not do, with a crappy little 22 pistol that was not a target pistol.

I still shoot for the thrill, not the kill.

With respect...
