    Lots of auto laws and restrictions on their use. I'm not going to check the fatality score vs firearms by unwarranted victims. Around me the auto toll is higher. Deliberate or not. Locked up the brakes today on a busy road doing the speed limit when an idiot made a left in front of me without enough room or time. My other much heavier truck would have T-boned him. Intentionally or not.
    Had I run him down for being an idiot ,it would have been intentional though. And road rage , right?

    Ammonium nitrate is now restricted. Dad used to blow ponds using it. I still recall the recipe. Try buying some today though.
    Yet , farmers have to guard it carefully if they can acquire any. It has been stolen. Who do you guess stole it? Other farmers?

    Walmart not selling guns changes little in some one wanting to acquire ones attitude. Never forget we have a doorway to South America. And South America has a doorway to the world. How does Walmart not selling something affect those doors?
    Look to Mexico for the answer.
    Feel good stuff. So folks sleep better at night knowing the world is safe in their neighborhood. Till it ain't.

    Well sir, you have your opinion. My thought is a gun is to keep that from happening. Self defense does not mean "killing someone or something" it means a deterrent to those who intend on that action. Literally millions of folks in the US own guns and and a small percentage use them to commit evil deeds. That is why the US has adapted what they call a complete back ground check of a potential buyer. So now you are stating that they cant stop the fertilizer sales because many use it for good deeds, yet the self protection capabilities of a firearm somehow does not fit your same analogy. Lets hope that you sir do not get into a situation where you have to use ur fertilizer for self protection. A firearm used by the overwhelming majority of owners can be used also in a responsible manner

    We have Kroger’s here for years but you have to have a special “mark” Lol to get their sale price

    Meijer is ok (they have Coinstars), but if you go thru a checkout bring a tent and supplies, yes you’ll be in line waiting that long.

    Ever hear of target or competition shooting? its a sport. A sport that even can earn one scholarships for school and even earn an income. So your logic failed immediately.

    While waiting for tires to be mounted at Walmart, I surfed their free WiFi for GLOCK accessories. NOTHING. How can all these websites be down at the same time? I switched off their WiFi and these sites worked. They censor their WiFi. Shameful.

    I like our Walmart here in Gunnison. Never any problems there, people open carry all the time without issue.
    Theres a security guard now that asks if you have a mask but I just walk by and ignore her and do my shopping like a free man.
    It's all about location.

    I've seen People with Holstered Handguns at their side at St Clair's Walmart here.
    but Just because they are in plain Clothes doesn't mean They are just Regular Citizens.

    there are many officials who Open carry.

    Of course this was also before the mass gun free Zone debacle .
    Not sure if Walmarts are gun free Zones here now.

    Been years since Walmart has been My Go to place for shopping.

    Really odd differences throughout the country. I’ve never seen anyone open carry here in Mich ever. The last guy that did was about 5 years ago in a local strip mall, shoppers freaked out and the police were involved. Most retailers here do not allow open carry either way.

    so your gun is secured wherever, and circumstances cause you to get it
    then what
    you gonna talk or waive it around
    and if you have to shoot - only to disable

    no guy, it doesn't work that way
    if you are not ready to pull the trigger, don't pull the gun

    I had to pull my .45 one day at stop light when I was being assaulted through drivers window of my car by man who was high that I had refused to give a ride to. Just the sight of my .45 pointed at his face ended the assault immediately. I could have shot him under Florida law, police even stated so, but I didnt need to as he took off running at the sight of my .45 pointed at his face.

    You do not necessarily have to pull the trigger, only being willing to do so if needed. I carry 99.97% of the time, locked and loaded. Sometimes I even carry 2 .45s depending on where I'm going and when. With recent riots I have carried 2 several times when driving
