Seriously!? Guns, of course, though bows/crossbows are always an option, especially in these days of scarce/expensive ammunition.

Targets. Had I meant animals, I would have said "hunting," not "shooting."

Do you support marriage equity?

Have friends that are not for equity and I love them dearly. But they're not hateful toward gays either.

I'd ask how many good friends they feel they have. If they say none , then there are some issues.
