Only if you want a blown barrel with shrapnel going all over the place.
I've seen rifles and shotguns that had mud in the muzzle. Not a pretty sight, and the damage done to the shooter
was anything from just burns on the hand to blindness and head injury.


Sounds like you are hanging with the trained and responsible gun owners the NRA is always bragging about.


He is an expert.

Globally, tobacco use killed 100 million people in the 20th century, much more than all deaths in World Wars I and II combined. Tobacco-related deaths will number around 1 billion in the 21st century if current smoking patterns continue. Among middle-aged persons, tobacco use is estimated to be the most important risk factor for premature death in men and the second most important risk factor in women (following high blood pressure) in 20102025. To understand better how to address this issue, tobacco deaths need to be monitored closely, and this can be done best if death registries systematically collect data on tobacco use status. Currently, data on tobacco deaths mostly come from individual epidemiological studies.

National Right to Life estimates that, since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion 43 years ago in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton , more than 58 million unborn children have lost their lives. Each one of those abortions is a tragedy, not just because an innocent child died, but because of the lasting impact the abortion itself had on the mothers of those children.

Drinking too much can harm your health. Excessive alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost (YPLL) each year in the United States from 2006 2010, shortening the lives of those who died by an average of 30 years.1,2 Further, excessive drinking was responsible for 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults aged 20-64 years. The economic costs of excessive alcohol consumption in 2010 were estimated at $249 billion, or $2.05 a drink.3

(CDC) show that on an average day, 93 Americans are killed with guns.

To calculate this, Everytown relies on a five-year-average of data from the CDC, whose National Vital Statistics System contains the most comprehensive national data, currently available through 2015.1

On average there are nearly 12,000 gun homicides a year in the U.S.
12,000x10=120,000 in 10 years do the math people your chances of being shot slim quit beating a dead horse I applaud your passion and effort but use both where it can do the most good!

Actually, some of the rifles were M-16s at Ranger school. People who should know to check the muzzle, but when you've been awake for several days in sub freezing weather (sometimes -60 chill factor), your mind isn't on what it should be. Anything in the muzzle makes a gun into a potential bomb.

That's great. Another false equivalency. I am convinced, based on your posts, that you consider incidents like , you completely ignore the victims right to life. So noted.Las Vegas, Aurora, Sandy hook, Virginia Tech and Columbine to be the price of freedom. When you talk about rights, you do not consider the victim's right to life. The country you want isn't free except for the minority who believe that they should be able to own any weapon that they want to.

Did he say that, or are you just trying to cherry pick your way out of something?

Says the guy worried about a home invasion gun battle, LOL. Please, what a joke. Let's compare those odds. Stop with the b.s., and just cut to the chase as to why you are so against demonstrating competency before purchasing a firearm. Every response has been non-sensical and filled with holes, no pun intended.

Only because you didn't like the answers given you.

then tell me where the sense is: we don't need gun control because there is a low probability of being killed by a gun. we don't need gun control because we need to protect ourselves from the even lower odds of being subjected to a home invasion shootout.

I'm supposed to listen to that logic.....really?

Boyton sums it up exactly. Except... there is also the argument about protecting ourselves against the United States Military in packs of three or four hillbillies with modified non-automatic guns.
