Recently was discussing a local shooting. Had to think, doing something like that is so FAR from my capability or mentality it is impossible to even imagine, just Never could or would happen not even accidental.
Growing up as a boy on a farm, guns and hunting were a part of life, often had a gun setting around for shooting groundhogs, grew up toting a 22 around the fields. Knew better than to keep it loaded indoors, or EVER, EVER!!! point it in an unsafe direction. (let alone shoot someone on purpose) can't even imagine it.
I graduated from Lower Dauphin high school, got out early for work in senior high. If i had a dollar for every time i went to school with a rifle or shotgun behind the seat of the truck in the school parking lot...i could probably buy a box of shells.
I carried a pocket knife every day in school, never was a problem.
Folks wonder what is happening to our hunting heritage,and gun rights. Many folks think they can make our world a better place by legislation and control....I got a better idea...get some good old fashioned values back.
We made our world, we chose our path, our current social state has nothing to do with guns or hunting but has everything to do with a twisted sense of values and morals.
Was watching an old Andy griffeth show, was very common of them to speak of guns and hunting and fishing on that show. Find a modern comedy with those values on TV today.
Bet opie carried a pocket knife to school.
luckily some of us never changed.
