And I took a full gun course first. I don’t like guns, but I’d rather have some kind of defense.

I own an AR15, Ruger 10 22, and a Ruger LC9s (9mm handgun)

Fired those on top of my dad's .270, 12 gauge, 20 gauge, .357, Ruger Mini 14, and I guess BB gun if we are counting those.

I own exclusively semi-automatic weapons, surprisingly none of them have killed anyone

Well unless you have a Class III then they are all semi-automatic. Unless you count bolt-action separate. But same here. I have 2 and they have never killed anyone. Weird.

I tend to have the following classifications when describing guns: automatic (1 trigger fires bullets until stopped), semi-automatic (1 trigger pull = 1 shot and I typically say double action revolvers fit this category), pump action (pump to chamber round and 1 trigger pull), single action revolvers (1 hammer back and trigger pull), bolt action (charge bolt and trigger pull), and lever action (1 lever draw and trigger pull)

Did I miss anything?

Absolutely not true. Depending on the state as far as I could find. Some are classified as 'Antique' so some can own them. But there are also some black powder rifles that you have to have a FFL.

Yes it was dumbshit, you said that my negative attitude towards firearms would not do well if I was getting robbed, this is a logical fallacy called the appeal to consequences. One that doesn't work because neither of us had been robbed!

rambo088 kansas
06/03/18 4:10 pm

Nice hypocrisy you have there. You have no ground to claim logical fallacy when your non argument of "i haven't been robbed yet so i don't need a gun" is analogous to "i haven't got in a wreck yet so i feel secure by not wearing a seatbelt"(which is in fact a non argument of consequentialism). The fact that i haven't been robbed yet doesn't mean i shouldn't be prepared...

Oh jumping Jesus on a pogo stick boy, that's what your statement was, an argument against my argument, it was a hope of a threat, you were envisioning and hoping I was going to get robbed and suddenly realized the error of my ways. You probably ejaculated to it.

AdamStephens West Virginia
06/05/18 12:28 pm

You set up the argument about what you said being akin o saying what I said applied to driving without gas, not even comparable. It's an argument you created to be destroyed easily. It's nothing to do with what I said, or even what you said. An appeal to consequences is a logical fallacy pretty much saying "keep doing what you're doing and you'll be sorry!" You don't need to be right it's just a threat that there will be consequences. That's what it's called argumentum ad consequentiam.

Well for a first timer I can see trap shooting being a deal. However, as I'm sure glockman is more than capable of doing, once you know to lead and calmly shoot, I'd say it's way easier than hitting a can at 50 ft with a pistol. I was mostly trying to joke around....
