Like I said, it's the mindset. I want to take care of myself and my own is a masculine outlook on life. Women seek to be protected by others, be they their fathers, brothers, husbands or the police. That's why women value men of power whether this power be social, physical, or economical. men don't seek the same in a woman. In fact they outright seek to dominate a woman. This is why most men won't consider a woman larger, stronger, or whatever compared to them. This is all common sense.

Some men feel they can take care of themselves without a gun.

And this

Having done military service and owned many long guns over the 66 years I've been alive; I'd hypothesize I represent a fairly large spectrum of folks who are anti-gun hugging types. Please note I did not say gun owner types, but rather, you foaming-at-the-mouth "guns make you a man" types.

You nuts are the very epitome of who should not be allowed near anything that can dispatch human life from a remote location.

Anyone making the assertion that the ownership of a gun differentiates between those who are manly, independent, self-reliant and those who might be weak, effeminate and dependant, as many of you on here, are the type of infantile personality that should be kept at arm's length from anything that can fling a projectile.

I consider myself a strong man. I stand taller than 6'6" and I weigh over 260lbs. I keep myself in shape. Even so, it'd be close to impossible for me to defend myself without a gun when my opponent has a gun. I'm not so much concerned about people who feel they don't need a gun. That's fine. My issue is with people who want to ban guns. That's a symptom of mommy america and is a feminine outlook on the problem.

We're not calling the guys with guns just because they have guns. You don't just walk into a police station and say, "i want to be a cop", get handed a gun and a pat on the back. Police Officers are (supposed to be) professionals. Most of their job does not involve pulling a gun.

Most of the people I have seen linking guns to masculinity come from the far left side where you come from.
Cept he never said this. Go back and listen, this time.

Hunting with a knife, speer, or bow and arrow, that's manly.

Wrong! Some men may think like this but I can assure you MOST men do not. Give me a lifetime partner any day of the week over the simpering female who needs a shoulder to lean upon.

You do the female species a disservice in describing them using assumptions that haven't been accurate for perhaps a hundred years or more.

Have you forgotten your history with Rosie the Riveter figuring prominantly in carrying the day when men were in rather short supply? Try telling her you need her to be subserviant and reliant upon your manliness and your little pop-gun and I bet you wear a size 8.5 as far up your rearend as she could put it.

Manliness has nothing whatsoever to do with the pansy-azz characterizations you fellas are giving it.
