Safeway - that's where I do my hunting :up:
I'm very appreciative of the fact I grew up in the 60s and 70s
I did a lot of stupid things back then and none of it is on record.

Nope, please don't put words in my mouth.

I still don't see how farming vegetables has anything to do with owning a gun and killing animals but I think that was Barbarian's point and not yours.

Vegetables isn't food. Vegetables is what food eats.

If food comes on your farm to eat your vegetables ya gotta kill it. :D

Well done everyone. I haven't had a good laugh like this on this board for a long time. Amazingly witty responses.

Vax...let's say you discover a mangy yote living in one of your cattle sheds. How would you deal with the issue?

Guns will always be murdering tools and criminals will always have guns. Ensuring every citizen has guns doesn't prevent crime. It just means everyone is now shooting each other.
[/quote].

here is my reply...

I view my guns (other than for hunting and shooting) as self defence weapons.
Imagine if the people (pick a mass murder) had a gun(s) to defend them selves and knew how to use it !!!
It is as simple as, if you are going to try to kill me...I have a gun with me and know how to use it...I'm going to defend myself and those around me...you won't be killing anyone today".
It is NOT a case of "everyone is now shooting each other" but a simple point...I'm not letting you kill me !!!

If anyone thinks banning assault weapons, or guns in general will prevent more killing, how will YOU keep them out of Canada and away from criminals ? Answer that !!! Criminals will always have access to guns. Hell, you can even go buy a working TANK, but I'm sure JT will find a way to ban them. What's next...cork screws and can openers ?

BTW...as stated...I own guns...and they have NEVER killed anyone. It is not the gun (weapon) that does the killing...it is the person. Try to refute that !!!

There is no bigger environmentalist/lover of animals then a hunter.
[/quote]

How can someone who kills animals with a gun be an animal lover?
[/quote]

Hunters were the first environmentalists and YES we do love animals !
Perhaps you have heard of Teddy Roosevelt or Ulysses S Grant?
Both were presidents of the USA, war veterans, and hunters.
Grant created the first national park.....Yellowstone.
Roosevelt created 150 national forests, 51 federal bird reserves, four national game preserves, five national parks and 18 national monuments on over 230 million acres of public land.
Here is a interesting stat...

In 2018, over 5.685 million Canadians participated in hunting, fishing, trapping, or shooting sports, resulting
in:
o $18.9 billion in direct spending in Canada;
o $13.2 billion to Canada’s gross domestic product – 0.6% of the Canadian economy;
o Support for nearly 107,000 Canadian jobs, and labour income estimated at $6.4 billion; and
o $6.1 billion in federal and provincial government revenues.

Are hunters the largest contributors to conservation...
The 10 largest non-profit conservation organizations contribute $2.5 billion annually to habitat and wildlife conservation.

Now, let me ask you a simple question...how much do YOU contribute to wildlife and environmental conservation ?
