  • Gun For Self Defense
    278 words
    Here I am talking about gun control again. It's a very issue. I like guns, despise animal rights activists, and enjoy hunting! I don't see the big deal. My thoughts are that most people that are against guns, probably have never touched one. They think they are dangerous. If they opened their eye's to the real facts, they would stick a big sock in their own mouth's. Some politicians and animal rights activists don't get it.
