Poly, Speaking only for myself, I've been an avid outdoorsman my entire life, and being that I'm involved in so many different facets of the outdoors; camping,hiking,canoeing,fishing,recreationally shooting and hunting just about everything that can legally be hunted. My collection is probably a bit larger than, say the guy or gal that owns a single gun to go out and deer or duck hunt once or twice a year, and yet smaller than some who collect firearms. While at one time my collection exceeded five dozen firearms, many I owned, I purchased only with collectors value in mind. I sold off many of those over the past couple of years, the bulk over last spring and summer, in preparation to move west, and the firearms I now own are all functioning tools that we use in outdoor pursuits. While I could likely hone that down even more, as there are some guns that I never personally use, they were purchased with my mrs in mind, simply because much of what I owned were too big and heavy, or produced too much recoil for her to be comfortable using. I'd compare my personal obsession with firearms to some women and shoes. There are so many that you need for function and fashion, yet some you just buy because they catch your eye,lol.

Poly, for hunters, there is a waterfowl gun, a dove gun and maybe even a quail/pheasant gun. For mammals, you have a short range deer rifle, a long range gun and the higher caliber for elk and moose. Handguns, 2 calibers for carry weapons depending on what you are wearing, a target and hunting pistol...so as you can see there are valid reasons to have many guns depending on your hobby, area of hunting and animal to be hunted. Then there is the hobbyist that likes to own collector and shooting guns. I have my Dad's 22, an antique 38 and 351 rifle, a 380 carry weapon along with several shotguns and a couple of rifles, just collected over the last 30 years....hope that helps

That is easy Poly, I have 2 hunting rifles and a .22 hand gun for hunting, One for fowl and the other for predators. The other three are for my protecting my famliy and at the risk of being turned in I will not divulge them. They are for my families protection. If you break into my home and I am here...I promise you will leave in a body bag. No grey area here and it is my right according to the laws of my state and federal government.

When I was young there were several handguns that were available for under $100. The H&R .32 and .38 was one of them it sold in hardware stores for about $50. I owned one for a tackle box gun that I paid $47 dollars for new. It did not have a swing out cylinder or an ejector. To load the cylinder had to be removed and the shells pushed out with the cylinder pin. Saturday night special was recognized at the time as a racial term. That it was a gun that the poor could afford. The term was coined by non other than the LBJ administration, and the media at that time. There is no longer any handguns available new for under $100. The term surfaced again under the Carter administration, FBI and BATF where then ordered to aggressively remove SNS from the streets and the term was used in memo's to direct agents to use whatever means, this included illegal wire taps.

Sapp, My opinion of "Saturday Night Specials" is that it's an anti-gun blanket concept developed by the media and promoted by the band Lynerd Skynerd. The concept was generally used to describe an assortment of inexpensive, usually smaller sized, handguns. Now since "sns" is an imaginary list, and entirely subjective, the argument can be made that they don't exist. If inexpensive, or cheap, is the determining factor, at what pricepoint does a saturday night special become an acceptable handgun. It's a shame in my book, but many of the cheapest of handguns have simply disappeared into obscurity. I hate to draw the vehicle analogy again, but it's hard not to compare it to a Yugo. While certainly not polished, precision machines, they allowed a cheap alternative to those who couldn't afford a dressed out Lincoln. Cheaper handguns of the 70's and 80's were much the same way, but unfortunately have gone the way of the Yugo. Could they have been used to create horrible acts? Absolutely.However, the majority were still purchased legally for legitimate purposes by people who could not afford, or at least could not justify spending $500,600 or $700+ on a handgun. The assumption of that song, and of the media in generally, is that the only useful purpose of a handgun is to kill. The reality is, that handguns are used coast to coast in competitive shooting events, similar to skeet or sporting clays shoots, recreational shooting, hunting (which one could still argue is killing) as well as home and personal defense. While the "saturday night specials", if they ever truly existed, have gone the way of the dinosaur, I believe that there should always exist some economical options for the people who wish to get into handgunning, but simply don't want to spend the money to buy a high quality firearms, for a sport they're not sure they will enjoy, or a home defense weapon that they most likely, aside from practice, will never need to shoot.

Sap, The term saturday night special was a term coined many years ago with a very racist meaning. It was an inexpensive gun that blacks would buy to carry and then get drunk on cheap gin and shoot someone they were gambling with. Saturday night special means much the same as fat person. If you live in South Georgia it takes a hole lot more to be considered fat than if you live in San Francisco. In other words it is subjective. If one means it is an inexpensive lightweight handgun that is preferred by people with limited income, and only plan to shoot it less than 20 times in their life that would sum up the average idea of what constitutes this gun. So then by banning them, are you saying that only people who can spend several hundred dollars on a high quality gun have the right to self defense? Does that not slam right into the equal protection ideas? Or is it like the elitism of the Rosie crowd who hate guns, but feel they have the right to a hired bodyguard. We own in excess of 100 guns. At least 15 would be considered saturday night specials. Those are guns that I will carry when their is low chance of needing it, but high chance of damage. I am not going to put a $700.00 handgun in the bottom of my tackle box or leave it on my boat. If something happens to a .22 RG revolver, I have not really lost much, but loaded with what we call rat shot down here, it will send a cotton mouth to meet his maker. Gun laws have always been based on either people control or hysterics. The few state gun laws in the post "reconstruction" south were aimed at keeping handguns away from blacks. The irrational gun laws since the 1980s were based on looks not function. A bayonet lug made a gun an assault weapon. Last time anyone died in part of the United States from a fixed bayonet, was when we retook Guam in 1944. The banning of Semi Auto AK clones did not count if the weapon had a thumb hole in the stock and the bayonet lug was removed!!! Is this logical or evidence based? The banning in some states of the .50 caliber rifles made to fire the same round as the good old MA Deuce is based on theory, what it has the CAPABILITY to do. Even though the guns cost several thousand dollars, are at least 4 feet and usually closer to 6 feet long, and the lightest ones weigh over 28 pounds they were banned. I do not personally own one, nor care to, since I am not a 1000 meter competitive shooter. But, those who enjoy that sport are dedicated shooters who spend thousands of dollars per year on their hobby. In fact, the initial large sales by Barrett to this group opened the eyes of the Army and Marines to this great rifle.They saw its long range potential, and now it is saving the lives of our men and women in Afghanistan. I have never understood how the men and women in elected office who claim to be the most liberal have the greatest desire to strip citizens of their rights to self defense.

Scotty, at the very least we should ban or restrict doctors that look menacing. Maybe restrict them to lethal injections in prisons.

To find where 2A rights have been hindered one only has to look at Obama's home state of Illinois. There every citizen except for law enforcement has had there right to bear arms completely removed. To make matters worse in Chicago the residents are not even allowed to use any reasonable means to defend themselves in their own home if attacked. The right to bear arms is not about hunting, it is about the right to defend oneself, and or family, from any unjustified assailant including our own government should it decide to. Bearing arms(open carry) is the 2A.

There is a grassroots movement in this country to open carry where legal. And is done by CCW holders here, but not required to have a CCW in NC to open carry. In this country if you do not use your rights you lose them. The socialists would be content to scare the common public into believing that guns are evil, and the government will protect. We all know this is a fallacy.

Even when the government does try to protect our rights, by using any means to stop terrorists the liberals scream foul. Maybe if Clinton was paying more attention to his constituents instead of screwing a few and trying to take the rights of the rest a national disaster could have been averted.
