I learned how to shoot shotguns and rifles when I was 11 yrs old. I was 15 years old when I was given my 1st rifle. My father taught me how to use and respect guns He taught me never to point a gun at people. I was 17 years old when I joined the Marine Corps. I was issued an M1 Garand rifle and learned to shoot it along with the M1A1 45. Cal Semi-Auto pistol. Later on I gave up my M1 for an M14 rifle and had a selctor switch to make it shoot fully automatic. A while later I was issued an M1A1 45. Cal pistol along with my rifle. The Marine Corps taught me how to handle, Shoot and respect guns of all kinds and their proper use. When I left the Marines I was 21 years old.
A few years later I became a COP and retired after nearly 26yrs service.
With proper training even children can learn to use guns safely and responsibly. If an 18 yr old can serve his country and carry a rifle and go into combat and die for he country, why is it that the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals thinks that 18 to 21 yr olds can't learn to be resposible with guns in civilian life?
It appears that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives forgets their 18 to 21 yr old years when they had a rifle of pistol of their own but liberal organizations want the weapons for themselves and if things go their way all
Americans will not have any guns and the Liberal organizations like the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives will keep the butt of their rifles upon the people.

I think they should give guns to everybody and watch how they kill each other. No weapons = less murders, imo.

It always strikes me as curious that the ones who scream the loudest to defend the FIrst and Second Amendments are usually in the same crowd that is so quick to try to limit the Seventh Amendment.
