If the people that attend and run these shows do not have gun safety understanding why should they have guns. I am all for defending myself with a gun but please do not give them to the mentally handicapped.

How many people joining the Army have shot someone priorly?
How many people joining the Army have NOT shot someone, priorly?

Look at the odds. The military gives much more opportunity to kill than any other occupation.

Anyone joining knows that and becomes a psychopath.

Not true. Cops are more involved in that matter, especially in the domestic sense.
The ONLY time the military are involved in death, is when they are employed in war.
But further, and VERY MUCH MORE than that, is the medical profession in the U.S.: Over 100,000 people in the U.S. are 'killed' at the hands of 'medical professionals each year.
So, WHO which 'profession' gives the greatest opportunity to kill?

Everyone dies and many in a hospital. The physician took an oath to save lives not to win wars. If a person dies that is attended to by doctor he was going to die anyway. One doctor told me that the body heals it self and the doctor only aids in the speed. Same for dieing.

Goes to prove a point. Those who think that force is good, are psychopaths. The very fact that an imaginary line drawn between cultures requires defence to the death ignores humanity.

We are all human, not rival teams fighting for imaginary victories to control each other.

I guess that makes fire extinguishers and insurance an unneeded item as well. Nobody will ever have the need for insurance because their property will never be damaged by anyone or nobody will be injured on their property. Nobody will ever have a fire either so no need for a fire extinguisher or fire department. Is it hard to see with your head lodged that far up your ass?

Insurance is a fraud for those that disregard risk. Fire Extinguishers are for those that practice risky behavior. Everything has cause and effect. There are those who make money from people that do not learn the effect of risky behavior. The majority of humans never used a fire extinguisher or need insurance. The marketing of these things are based on fear and the stupid acts of people that do not take the time to do things with care.

You must use Charmin as a necktie. Your head has to be that far up your ass with the comments you make.

The point is guns do not kill people or make mistakes. It is humans that have control and do not take their actions seriously enough to live without the safety net.

The point is that prudent people take precautions such as fire extinguishers and insurance. You can control YOUR actions but not the actions of others or unforseen mishaps. I will keep insurance, fire extinguishers and guns. Think on the bright side though, with your head that far up your ass you don't need a hat.

Many people serve in the military and never see a shot fired in anger. Several that I know have served a full 20 years without seeing any action. Not all in the service are in a place requiring firearms or being shot at.

Prudent people are careful and do not make the mistakes that need insurance as replacement and a middle man to charge others for you poor behavior. Both insurance and extra products, just in case are marketing ploys that take advantage of fear and no responsibility.

The next time you complain about your savings think what you threw away because someone marketed fear to your emotions. As for my head it has a mind that thinks about more that your where your mind is.

As for the military someone that that operates and repairs drone contributes to the death they cause. No one on the team is innocent. As for me I pay the taxes to the mafia to do it. Simply because I will not fight for it to stop.

So you don't have homeowners insurance even though lightning could very well strike it and burn it down?
You don't carry car insurance even though your car could be hit and totaled by someone else (their fault) and you're okay if THEY don't have insurance?
You don't have health insurance so you'll pony up out of your pocket after an appendectomy?
Wow. You must be rich!!!
