    Under the most fundamental meaning of the word, any discharge of a firearm is a violent act. Having said that, there are some important distinctions that the author of this piece, and most Bliss Ninnies in general, miss in regards to "gun violence" and their conflation of the various means, methods, and motives of death. When used in the context of humans, violence is generally taken to mean those acts that are aggressive, harmful, and generally antisocial. Those are the same acts that beget our homicide and violent crime rates. To then consider that the "gun violence" rate for humans is then roughly 200% larger than it actually is by including those who tragically choose to take their own lives as if that choice is the moral equivalent of engaging in the reprehensible criminal acts of aggression is beyond the pale and an utterly repugnant view to hold, never mind the fact that focusing on one subset of violence is disingenuous, at best.

    Then we have this gem, and the untold millions of "gun violence" "victims" in our country...

    Sex is an aggressive act of passion. Should we ban it?

    I envisioned Michael Moore holding a sign "we're all deer" in front of Ted Nugent's house when I read that.

    This is by no means anything new. People have been calling for an end to hunting and fishing for many years.

    Many people do not realize this, but the American Humane Society supports implementing total bans on all types of hunting, and wild fishing too. The are still in favor of commercially produced meat and fish, though. Although they do encourage people to become vegetarians.

    PETA, though, is adamantly against all eating of meat and fish, even if commercially raised. Back in 1998, they attempted to get all fishing in Crater Lake National Park banned.

    These people all consider animals to be just like people. This sort of crazy thought process is probably what was behind that Super Bowl commercial that featured a "Puppymonkeybaby"

    I am still having a difficult time getting that disturbing image out of my mind:

    Fvck yes! Oops, I forgot a comma there.

    Oh boy. Now they're telling us what food we can eat. I guess I'll meditate my next elk to death.
    I know >10 vegans, two of whom both independently said to me (my paraphrase here), "vegans who think they're saving the planet by their organic, animal free diet have their head up their asses." I think they actually said, "wrong" or "mistaken". They both went on to explain, when you factor in transportation and agrarian inefficiency to maintain exclusively vegan diets, when you get your food from stores, it is more costly to the environment.

    Kinda like electric cars having a carbon footprint not too dissimilar from gas powered vehicles, but being much more costly, environmentally, to produce.

    I'm a killer.
    I kill burgers
    I kill steaks
    I kill bacon
    Put meat in front of me, and I will murder it.

    Maybe we should let deer populate in the communities of anti-hunters. See how long it takes before they either start killing the deer themselves or hiring others to do it.

    Meat is Murder!!!!
    Yes its tasty, tasty Murder. deer jerky.

    Joking aside taking the life of an animal for the reason of meat is
    100% the way of life. Do these crazy nutbags want to ban wolves for ripping the throats out of
    a deer and leaving it to kick scream and end in death while being eaten alive. Nature is way more violent then people, if only these idiots would see reality. I guess they are the type that see a great white shark and go here fishy fishy :rolleyes::rolleyes:o_O:oops::confused::(:mad:

    I have always wondered if these Vegans and PETA members would still be what they are if there was nobody around for them to tell about it.
