I just believe the mentality of having a gun, is anti peaceful and doesn't come across as something "vegan".
For sure at least you must be against guns/weapons sold for hunting/sport, being a vegan.
The goal of a vegan is respect for all life, and the ideal is that all guns should be abolished.
I have never had a gun, and never will buy a gun, and I'm probably much less scared than any average american is of any serious crime ever happening to me. Why? Because guns are simply not around that much, and it is not a frequent occurence for people to be killed by guns here.
I don't meant to say the states is the only country with gun issues, Africa is definitely another one. I just hear a lot more about the US gun related issues because I'm in a neighbouring country, so our news and media covers a lot of US related issues. I suppose it is also because I was trying to find out if Lib was pro-guns, since he's in the US, and most people in the US are, but I feel it is an anti-vegan mentality to possess a gun (just my opinion). Neither of you need to justify yours! I'm not trying to attack or get into a debate, as none of us would ever budge (I'm completely against guns, and you guys are completely for it - so there is no point in discussing it really). Anyway, we have totally taken this thread off topic!
I totally respect having your personal beliefs on guns and implementing those beliefs in your own life. It seems like you are into having those personal opinions forced upon me and others, and I am not cool with that.
I am opposed to the so-called "sport" of hunting yes, but that is only one type of shooting and not one that I consider a sport at all.
I do feel that discussions such as this are very valuable. It's important for all of us to remain openminded and willing to learn and change. Besides that, many folks have never really researched or considered these issues and/or have only been exposed to very limited info and views
about them - having an open discussion can help them formulate their own opinions.
