No because I never said posing for pictures was stupid, just as long as you're not stupid about it. Think about it. Posing with a deadly weapon in a glorifying fashion? You don't think that's irresponsible? So be it, but I grew up a long time ago and think it is.
And again, there is a false sense of power with a gun. Simple and plain. A gun takes lives, at least; does bodily damage. It's a false sense of security and power because all of a sudden you feel like you're pretty safe. And you feel like a bad ass who can take on all comers. That's false. With a gun you feel secure you said, right? Without it, you live in a state of fear? So why with a gun feel so safe? You don't. You just feel like you're at least on a level playing field with the boogey men. In reality, you're still living in fear and worst, now you have a gun.
Stick to your guns (no pun intended) and stop twisting your bullshit around, fucking retard.
You offered up the fact that people pose for pictures with their firearms as "proof" of your asinine conclusion that responsible gun owners are rare. I informed you that posing for a firearm at a range is not proof of anything. You got butthurt and started to be even more of a little bitch than you were previously. If you're going to point a weapon at someone, then yeah, that's irresponsible. Not maintaining it? Irresponsible. Taking a picture with the weapon in the low ready, safety on, at a gun range? Having it aimed downrange and firing? Not irresponsible. Stop adding variables to your bullshit, while you're at it. First it was taking pictures. Then it's taking pictures with it pointing at someone. Of course it's irresponsible when you point a gun at someone for no reason, you fucking retard.
Do you own a gun? How do you know about a false sense of power if you don't own one? Because you held one in your hand a few times, so you assume everyone has the sick and twisted mindset that you do with a gun in their hands? Come down to Earth, mother fucker. You're a fucking retard. That doesn't make everyone else a fucking retard.
And yes, I'm safe from the boogeymen. You mad? You super duper mad that there are people that have full fucking long gun safes, with holsters mounted on the door for pistols and revolvers? Fucking retard.
