As an aside, why the f**k would someone want to shoot a , cougar, wolf anyway other than the fact they have to compensate for an incredibly small penis ?
You have penis issues
the assumption that everyone who has a gun is a hunter is limited and an uninformed one
out here certianly as the winters get milder, the lands get drier in the summer with less foilage and feed, not forgetting the increase in forest fires sees the wildlife moving into town.
The amount of people dying by collisions with deers whilst driving is on the increase so a cull needs to be enforced to reduce that risk. deer out here are like cats in the uk, all over the bloody place
also deer are the natural food source for the cougars and mountain lions so when the deer comes to town so do the the big cats. so year on year where big cats are being killed (and I don't mean hunted) the pattern emerging is that they are being killed closer to populated areas so in many ways certianly around here it's mostly for defence.
I can absolutely assure you that if you lived here and knew that mountain lions were close to where you live and your kids play...you would own a gun
I do hope they ban large capacity magazines and agree some form of gun control is needed but not because I am anti hunters. Guns are legal in the u.s. and most owners do use them responsibly.
a knee jerk ban will only hide the problem, the real problem is why are these school killings happening and by mostly young males..deal with that and the difference might be made
