    Gun owners who use their guns to hunt. I have no problem with that at all.

    What I have a problem with are the gun lovers who take things to an extreme..... feeling the need to carry around an AK-47 for "protection" in a restaurant or department store. Gun owners who vote on only one issue..... guns guns guns. People like Wayne LaPierre of the NRA who thinks all problems are solved with guns.

    Also have a problem with gun owners who are irresponsible with their weapons. Not keeping them in a safe place. Not using locks so they can be stolen or accidentally discharged by a kid. And people who refuse any regulation about guns. Because of irresponsible people they need to be regulated.

    Guns have become a public health issue in the USA and need to be treated as such. How many billions of dollars are lost / spent because of guns?

    But they're not all bad and not all gun owners are nuts.

    Wouldnt you find out said guy had a gun before knowing he was "perfect" for you? Some people dont like guns for one reason or another, they dont have to date guys that own them and the guys that have them dont have to adjust to that.

    What does it say about a person if he owns a gun?
    It's like if you don't like video games would you not date a guy who plays them?

    Refusing to date ANY guy who owns guns says more about you than him.

    If I owned a gun one day and then sold it or got rid of it the next, does that mean I'm dateable tomorrow but not today?

    my father owned a gun... not that i was "dating" my father, but id count myself lucky if i found a guy as genuine, upstanding, smart, and sane as my father.

    ive never held a firearm in my hands. think id like to go shooting sometime. i bet it feels great. #234 on the grand list of things i will do once im rich (or at least not broke anymore).

    Why does this thread remind me of a recycled thread on another site? Minus the poll of course...

    A gun would be one thing. Even I have a hunting rifle that belonged to my father...now if someone had an arsenal...I probably wouldn't be too excited to stay over....or to annoy him. Or to tell him where I lived. Or meet him except in a sauna.

    Video games are not comparable, they are entertainment. Guns are a tool meant to at least harm living things. That makes me uncomfortable.

    Refusing to date ANY guy who owns guns says more about you than him.
    Yea it says that I personally feel uncomfortable around guns and I dont want to purposely put myself in a position around one. And I dont want to impose on this person that they should get rid of a gun because of that.

    If I owned a gun one day and then sold it or got rid of it the next, does that mean I'm dateable tomorrow but not today?
    All that says to me is you either having bad spending habits and/or are indecisive. Also that question isnt realistic.

    i have a gun and 90% of the visitors to my house have no idea...why? because I am discreet about it. while I wouldn't want to date a guy who had a gun shoved in his waist band like he was living a scene out of Pulp Fiction, I wouldn't think dating a guy who is responsible about gun ownership is a bad thing

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    That's a good point. I'd far sooner date someone who owns firearms but hasn't misused them than anyone who's gotten a ticket for driving recklessly. And there are far more people killed here every year by automobiles than by firearms.

    I'd agree with that. Misuse is the key concept here. If someone saw their car as a means to get from A to B, we'd be good. But if they saw their car as a necessity to protect their property against the neighbours, I would not go along for that ride. Sure you can drive over the neighbours if they attack your house:

    But if someone thinks that is a realistic reason to own a car, they're missing something. Or living in the wrong neighbourhood/region/country.

    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    copy 'n pasted from Google --

    1. Get firearm purchaser's ID card - you can get it at your local police department, which entitles you to buy as many rifles and/or shotguns as you want. And if you want a handgun, you must get a handgun purchaser's permit, also available at your local police department.

    2. File paperwork, get fingerprinted, police will do a background check on you, NJ is not a gun-owner friendly state and most municipalities will take a long time to process your paperwork.

    3. To purchase the firearm, you have to take the handgun permit and firearm ID gun to a licensed gun dealer. They will check your paperwork and that's that.

    Gun owners who use their guns to hunt. I have no problem with that at all.
    I collected WWII arms for quite a while, but due to economic circumstances I'm going to have to give up on completing my collection. It's sad, because many items I got, such as the Japanese infantry rifle, have personal stories attached to them.

    Of course I've fired every last one multiple times, to experience what a soldier using each of those did when using it. The Arasaka and the Enfield have served as hunting rifles -- just for deer and elk in my hands rather than other human beings.

    Wayne LaPierre does not "think". He and his PR firm took over the NRA to make money, and that's it. He says whatever they decide will keep the money flowing.

    Carrying an AK-47 for protection is stupid, anyway. In a mortally threatening situation, it takes a lot longer to deploy a long arm than a sidearm.

    I've walked into a department store with a rifle over my shoulder a number of times, though -- after calling ahead, telling them I was coming to take it to the service counter in the sports or gun department. Some stores had an employee waiting to escort me, one insisted the employee had to carry the rifle (which I disabled first by removing the bolt; I will NOT let any stranger touch one of my weapons when it's capable of firing), but usually I just had to tell the first employee who I was and they waved me over to service.

    I've even biked down the street with a rifle over my shoulder, taking it to a gunsmith to be worked on -- the worst that ever happened was a police officer inquiring what sort of gun it was and advising me to stay out of traffic because I could frighten some people (duh).

    Last time I failed to store one of my firearms properly was when my blood sugar had plunged and I was barely able to figure out how to get out of the truck and into the house. Making sure I have snacks available is now on my checklist for taking a firearm with me out of the house. What infuriates me is owners I've known who make an error in safety and then fail to take any corrective action to reduce the likelihood of it happening again.

    BTW, Congress has no authority to regulate guns -- but they do have the power to discipline the militia, which is to say to make it "regulated" in the old sense of properly trained. That Congress has failed to do so is a travesty.

    Guns have saved more billions by stopping crimes.

    And they're not a "health issue" because they're not contagious. But many gun owners are a safety issue -- one I want to raise with Senator Wyden at his next town hall meeting here: we need a new militia act requiring training and, at the very least, storage requirements for any firearms not in use.


    Which brings me to say, I would NOT date one of the sort of idiots who thinks that driving around in the back of a pickup at dusk and shooting at things that appear to move is "hunting", or who shoot at road signs, or across swimming holes with kids swimming at the time (yes, I've witnessed all these). In fact, this thread has made me think that I may ask about what safety training a guy has engaged in for his firearms before I consider dating.

    Re: Would You Date A Gun Owner ?

    If I were dating, I'd have to say yes because I'm in the southern part of the U.S. and we don't have any other options.

    Nothing wrong with Canadians. They're fabulous.

    So your poll doesn't give me a proper choice.

    Yea it says that I personally feel uncomfortable around guns and I dont want to purposely put myself in a position around one. And I dont want to impose on this person that they should get rid of a gun because of that.



    All that says to me is you either having bad spending habits and/or are indecisive. Also that question isnt realistic.
    So you are uncomfortable AROUND guns. It has nothing to do with the owner.

    …and knowing the difference between a golf club and a gun would be on my list too...
    Actually there's one neighbor I sometimes think I do need to worry about -- he's a member of one of the more "energetic" white supremacist groups, and I have friends who aren't at all white.

    As for guns and golf clubs, for the purpose of my question, the difference is that crime statistics show that a gun is a need, whereas a golf club isn't. Other than that, they're both items for recreation.

    Offhand... some friends and I have wished we had about 2k acres of land, to build a gun-golf course. Golf and shooting are both ballistic sports, after all.

    Fear of fire and heights are natural because those things can harm or kill you.

    Of course, they can also be used constructively.

    I was responding to the notion posted by Kulindahr that it was merely "psychological disorder" to be afraid of guns at all. It's natural to have a level of fear regarding anything that can kill you. It's rather stupid not to, in fact. You read it outside of that context. I was making no allusion or illusion.

    No, it is a tool mostly used to harm or even kill a living thing, it takes a person to do that. So it is a bit of both.

    I dont care if people want to own guns, I just dont want to be around it.

    That's fine. So if someone owned a gun and kept it at a house in the woods that you never had to venture to, you'd be fine?

    Yeah its like knowing someone who has a fascination with nooses. It's just odd.





    I wouldn't want to be hanging around him either.










    Get it?
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    If you put a movie on tv that you didnt like and decided to sit further away from the screen than normally, do you like the movie more?

    That is an awful analogy and you know it lol.
    You don't like being around guns. They make you uncomfortable. So I presented a situation where you wouldn't be around guns.

    So it's not just being around guns that makes you uncomfortable. It's the very idea of guns. That's what it sounds like.

    What I'm getting at is that there is a disconnect in logic here.

    Guns bad. The end.

    That's what certain people in this thread have decided and they see NOTHING wrong or prejudiced with this way of thinking.

    It was an awful analogy to a stupid question. I already stated that it had to do with both.

    There is no disconnect in logic, I dont like guns for what they are for and what people use them for. I stated that.

    My Partner carries a firearm every day he is on duty,when i was in Afghanistan i carried a sidearm. Was not comfortable with doing it,but i realised the need.
    Here this is really not a problem as our laws are so strict. Knife crime is the nemisis in jockland.

    I just think gun owners' reasoning is deeply flawed on the issue of guns (barring a legitimate need for one, like living on a farm in the middle of nowhere), and so I'd be too skeptical about their reasoning on other subjects too.

    Also, I don't want to fear for my life every time we have a fight and he happens to be drunk.

    As if a gun is the only weapon that can make you fear for your life lol.

    If you have to fear for your life in any situation you're dating the wrong person gun-owner or not.
