Do you ever listen to yourself? Or is that too much work for the mouse and the wheel?

Before you pose a question, it is important to have a concept of what is unclear about the information in your head, otherwise you risk creating confusion and not getting an answer that satisfies what you seek to know.

The rhetorical question is usually defined as any question asked for a purpose other than to obtain the information the question asks. For example, "Why are you so stupid?" is likely to be a statement regarding one's opinion of the person addressed rather than a genuine request to know. Similarly, when someone responds to a tragic event by saying, "Why me, God?!" it is more likely to be an accusation or an expression of feeling than a realistic request for information.



Apart from these more obviously rhetorical uses, the question as a grammatical form has important rhetorical dimensions. For example, the rhetorical critic may assess the effect of asking a question as a method of beginning discourse: "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" says the persona of Shakespeare's 18th sonnet. This kind of rhetorical question, in which one asks the opinion of those listening, is called anacoenosis. This rhetorical question has a definite ethical dimension, since to ask in this way generally endears the speaker to the audience and so improves his or her credibility or ethos. The technical term for rhetorical questions in general is erotema.

Years ago, we developed our own games and "playing outside" was the norm. Not a lot of kids nowadays actually want to play outside. Most get their first gun experience in video games - and that is downright scary, IMHO.
I hear you, it's scary.

I always considered myself comfortable around guns - that was up until the time I entered the service. I was taught that your gun is an extension of yourself - hence sleeping with your gun. Heck, I know some brave war veterans that I wouldn't be caught within 15 miles if they were armed
Agree with that also. In two instances I can think of.... I have a friend of the family's who came home from Vietnam, and who suffered from PTSD. He slept not in his bed on his return, but on the floor for a long while, with a loaded rifle close by. Needless to say his family was worried, but as time went by.. he overcame it. I'm fairly positive he doesn't own a firearm to this day. It's been a while since I've talked to him, and his stance may have changed since then. In truth, he's one of the wisest and most seemingly gentle people that I've probably ever met. But with his particular condition, although he seems to have the problem licked, it may be best if he doesn't own a firearm.
And I also have a family member who served in Iraq... whom I'm amazed they even let hold a loaded firearm in the military.I have my own personal reasons for thinking that...and his actions after he became a civilian again, hasn't changed my opinion.

Teaching gun safety is only the tip of the iceberg. And beyond that, using a gun for hunting game and using one to only protect yourself are two entirely different situations. Shooting and actually killing another human being - regardless of what circumstance it may be - affects you for your entire life. Just ask someone that has - they will tell you the same thing.
True, and I personally hope that me or my immediate family will EVER have to use a gun in self defense. But I do feel somewhat safer having that option, especially where my wife and kid are concerned.... when I'm not home. As we know, criminals don't acknowledge laws.

But as you said - to each their own.
BTW - I am a gun owner; however, I decide not to carry one since I have not reached that level of paranoia yet.
To tell you the truth, I don't carry either. But If I perhaps lived in a large city, I well may. I've not felt the need either, but doesn't mean that I consider those that do.. paranoid in any way.I have a couple of highly publicized instances in mind, where just one concealed carry permit owner... could have well saved many lives. Just saying that armed nutjobs probably find defenseless people more appealing that armed people. They probably want as many victims as they can get in a short time span. The cowards never seem to attack a police station for some odd reason,just for an example.
Even though I don't own a concealed carry permit... I suppose I'm of the opinion that if more responsible adults did carry,and they were at the right place and at the right time, then some of this highly publicized mass murdering would probably have been cut short.

I suppose it's everybody's choice BT. But it would seem to be wisest to me, to be prepared for all worst case scenarios.

Such as criminals who wish to obtain what they want, by any means necessary. I suppose "in the everything is all rainbows and sunshine world" ... if there were an all out ban on guns, the criminals would also be forced to go unarmed just like law abiding citizens. But most of us already know, it just doesn't work that way.

So I prefer to keep my right.
