Anyone going into the woods during hunting season not wearing blaze orange is just freaking stupid.

That is uncalled for. If you do not like his opinion,, then shut up. He has a right to it, just because it does not fall in with yours, does not make it wrong. What makes it wrong is your ideal of freedom of speech,,, seems you are like many on here and think only you have that right.
Maybe this poster has good reason for his comment! Your assumptions make only an ass out of you. And your remark makes you no better than what you think of him.
You're contradicting your own self.

It's a shame some of these yahoos are running around in the woods shooting at anything that moves.

FCUKING BULLSHIT!!! The hunter is an ANTI-American ANTI-Military fcuk and should be sentenced to life without parole, or better yet execution.

Don't know any seasoned hunters who've ever come close to doing this.
Unfortunately only around 15% of those guys in the woods really know what they're doing. The rest would really be dangerous if they could put a round where they want it.
Sincerest sympathies to friends/family of the marine. Hope you can find peace thru this terrible loss.
Got something to back up your claim?

So where are the ANTI-Americans ANTI-Gun nuts? Surprised they have not flocked here to spread their ANTI-American beliefs of "ban all guns" bullshit rhetoric.

What is on me? Not following? Are you implying it is on me to research your claim? If that is the case then I will take it you have no evidence and merely expressing your opinion.

WTF are you talking about? I was posting to the person (The Monkey) that made a claim that only 15% hunters actually take safety courses (I use that out of context, exact words "know what they are doing"). How am I out of line wanting to see the evidence? And where exactly am I saying, let alone implying, he is ANTI anything?

OMFG! Are you retarded (your posts certainly read like you are, that or very drunk) or do you have a comprehension deficit?
