1. Handguns should have a license and psych test, because that way crazies couldn't get them

2. "Evil" rifles are ok. Except the Bayonet.

3. Hi-Caps should be legal, but only because he's to lazy to keep reloading 10 rounders

4. Machine guns should be banned. Why? because if new ones were legal with or without the tax stamp, CLEO sig, and background check availibility would go up. So all the gangsta would steal them from legal owners.

5. We only really need boltguns.

6. We would be able to fight an overbearing government exclusively semi autos. We would find people to buy FA from if it turned out we needed it.

7. Guns are used to commit crime much more often then prevent it.

8. And he recently said, you don't really need to pack a handgun for defense. Thats what police are for.


I love him, but he's starting to get on my nerves when we start talking about guns. But at least he doesn't force it on others. He admits they're just his views and most people disagree with him, so atleast he's not a real gun grabber.

Edited to add: He does want a 1911, and has an apreciation for the mechanical art. Like I said, he's not a real gun grabber, just a little elmer fudd.

You need to work on your father a little more.


Seeing that you and your old man are from California, you get a pitty pass.

My dad gave me a nice C&R bolt gun for Christmas, and likes shooting my AR. He wants a nice 1911 and .50, but is still dealing with other priorities. He also thinks you should shoot dead criminals at the scene of the crime and call the police just come pick up the bodies.

I do. And he is slowly coming over to our side, having fewer and fewer reasons for people to not own guns "like that".

The anti-gun lobby works partially by making casual gun owners believe that guns are for hunting or competition only. Once that goal is accomplishished, there is little or no resistance to banning "Assault Weapons" or anything semi-automatic.

Everyone has their own cop, right?

How old are you?

Sounds like your dad still rules the roost. Once you reach the age to talk to him like a friend and a son, then he may change his mind.

Worked for my father, ymmv.

It is always a shame when you realize your dad is not who he should be...........

Are you sure he's your dad? My dad tells me I don't have enough ammo and to buy more guns.

Remind him that cars kill many more people than guns. Should we ban cars?

Ask him 30 seconds before he leaves on a beer run and hold out your hand for the keys.

The worst kind of gun owner.


Ask him if he wants his thirty pieces of silver now, or later, after all the "bad" guns are gone. Of course by then, all guns will be "bad".

My dad's not anti-gun, but he's not a gun owner either. He's still convinced that every AR or AK that I own is illegal, haven't been able to convince him otherwise. You should have seen his face when I showed him my Barrett over Christmas.

Now try to figure this one out. My mom owns a gun, has a carry permit, knows that everything that I own is legal, is a member of the NRA, and voted for as well as campaigned for Kerry because "Bush is evil."

Depends who he is voting for out there....with views like that it sounds like Feinstain, Boxer, Waman, Lockyer, Codrea (sp), Waters are right up his alley.
Link Posted: 1/15/2006 7:36:32 AM EDT
I would disown him if I were you.

People that don't liek guns come up with some of the dumbest rationalizations for how gun ownership should be.

Psych test? If that's the case people should DEFINITELY have a psych test to drive and own a car. Road rage is a lot more common and someone going nutso and going on some sort of shooting rampage. Or a kitchen cutlery set. Or baseball bats. Or...

And I like how people think criminals somehow have access to this big database of all the people that own different types of guns, so they can steal them. Criminals are usually criminals for a reason... because they're too fucking dumb to do anything productive in society.

I usuallly can't even reason with people who think so narrowmindedly as that. I get too pissed off because they refuse to listen to anything that is anchored to reality.
