Funny you should say that actually, you won't be surprised to hear that you wrong, well at least in my case. I spent a lot of my younger years around guns, weapons etc etc. Down to the fact whenever i saw my father it was always at a marine camp/base/whatever.
Being the sensible person my father is, instead of hiding me away from all the guns, weapons etc, he actually taught me about the weapon (his gun) getting me to clean it, take it apart and assemble it again. I had to do this many many times before he would even think of taking me out and teaching me how to use it, at first i learned by watching and listening to him.
Eventually in my later teen years he allowed me to fire the gun on the camp where he was based, i won't ramble on about the ins and outs as i don't even think it was legal. He also showed me (at home) where he kept the gun and where the ammo was (it was never loaded) He told me that if there was ever real trouble, like somebody breaking into the house if i was there alone or if he was in trouble, that it was there for me to defend myself and my family if he was in trouble or not at home. Of course no such thing ever happened and there was no need for me or anybody else to take it out let alone use it, in many peoples eyes my father would be considered 'irresponsible' in my eyes he took away the 'wow' factor of the gun and instead taught me to respect them.
So in answer to your question, could i shoot a pedophile or a rapist, yes. For two reasons really, i have a younger sister, it would not be difficult to imagine my thaughts had that pedophile got anywhere near her. Second, i've fired a gun and have no problems doing it again, real targets or not. For sure the pedophile would end up dead but how i would deal with the 'aftermath' its anybodies guess. Another thing my father told me, when it coes to killing people its not the killing itself that is difficult, it is dealing with what you have done afterwards.
take from that what you will.
No you're just a faggy couch potato who makes morally heavy statements but if put in a real life situation due your peanut sized balls and hollywood based outlook on life and death hitting real life you would be unable to do anything but cry like a raped wuss, my personal philosophy is to never have an opinion i couldnt stand behind myself.
well its something i could stand behind, i don't see why you resort to name calling to try and back up your points of views about me, infact for anybody else who may think the same.
These people are twisted dark and broken and yes sometimes they need to be killed so our kids/women sleep in peace but i hope cowardly pathetic lowly couch preachers like you never ever have a say in matters of their life and death.
ok stop your silly name calling and actually have a discussion, at the moment all you are doing is banding names about, nothing else. You can call me what you like but in reality you know nothing about me or my state of mind when it comes to these sorts of people.
I will just say one thing, i work with children on almost a daily basis, i would not like to see any of them harmed. I would do anything and support anything to secure their safety, so please stop the name calling and have a proper debate/conversation/discussion
