""Guns are specifically designed to hurt people and animals." - MissEdithKeeler"

Actually, guns are made to KILL animals, birds, snakes, and other things.

if it weren't for hunting, millions of deer would starve to death each year. YOu need hunting for animal population control. Already we kill thousands and thousands in collisions with deer.

in the past 3 months, 3 of my friends have been involved in collisions with deer! got me about 4 years ago in MO...did $1500 damage to my car.......

a lot of low income folks count on getting that deer to help their food situation and feed their kids.

That's exactly what hunting guns are for!.......and for protection. when the big bear is breaking down your cabin don't call for 9--1-1 to send a ranger out in 3 hours to find your dead body. well, maybe you do since you won't own a gun.

And ....nearly 99.99% of the time, just having a gun is enough to scare off a potential burglar or perp. They don't stick around when they see a gun or know you have one.
