104. I leave rattlesnakes alone mostly.

They're fairly shy and eat critters that are worse.

Killing a few of them doesn't reduce the overall population much so there's not much point to it.

Pigs are the scariest animals in the California forests, more so than bears, and they're an invasive species.

113. My rattlesnake

Many years ago when we were living in the basement of the house we were building in the wilds of South Dakota, my then-6 year old daughter called out from the bathroom, "Mom, I need toilet paper! Also, there's a snake." I dropped the dish I was washing and ran and cracked the bathroom door open. A large rattlesnake was coiled a few feet from the toilet and my daughter. It was shaking its rattles. I told my daughter to not move, and I ran and looked for my husband's 22 (his dad gave it to him as a kid, but my husband had never shot it, or any gun). I had never shot a gun either. Still, not even knowing if it was loaded, I took aim at the snake and fired. Turns out, it was loaded. I got the snake - and also the water heater. My daughter was okay and again asked for toilet paper.

While all this is going down I would be laughing at him and making fun of his bullshit "Come and Take It" sticker on his truck.

106. When I was a kid my mom went berserker on a fool holding a rifle.

He was probably too busy shitting his pants to pull the trigger. Or possibly he suffered a moment of common sense.

My mom broke his gun, but she didn't beat him to death with it.

We're pacifists in my family by necessity, not by any natural inclination.

I've had too much gun drama in my life. I don't romanticize it.

138. Agreed.

Guns are tools and can be deadly either on purpose or by negligence. It is a huge responsibility to own and carry one. Too many people "like" or "love" guns which is really odd.

I don't demonize guns and I don't deify them. I see them as what they are and understand the consequences of their use and misuse.

26. I have owned many, right now I have two...

My father, military trained, taught me gun safety and how to shoot when I was 7-8 years old.

Boy Scouts took over after that, I won every event I entered.

I am also military trained (far advanced training, not just basic) shot expert with pistols, rifles, grenade launchers and mortars. Missed the 105mm cannon. Damn, I'd buy one if they were available to civilians.

I have hunted big game (never birds, I love birds) but now all I hunt are targets at a range. I hope I never have to use a gun in anger, but I'm more than qualified if it becomes necessary.

Any RWNJ that thinks all liberals are going to roll over and play dead when confronted, better get their heads out a very dark smelly place.

27. Don't have a need

If I had a true need, I would get one. As an engineer I can appreciate the technology and workmanship. But at the end of the day there are precious few people who can justify the ownership. God's to honest truth, if you enjoy shooting at targets, go to a range, rent a gun, or store a gun there, and shot as many paper targets as ya want. Go out on the range and plink yer heart out. But leave the gun there.

137. Back in the day

When I still had the belief the NRA could be changed from within, I taught a class specifically aimed at such situations. It involved no shooting, only to teach a person how to verify if a gun was loaded and unload it if necessary.

It was never a very popular class, which didn't matter, but mostly it was older widows whose husband's left behind guns. The ladies wanted to be sure they could move them to storage or sell them without accidentally shooting someone.

33. Never had one, but not ruling it out.

I wish there were a lot fewer guns in this country, but at the same time I understand why people would want or need one. My friends encourage me to get one because I live alone and my neighborhood isn't the best in town. But I feel safe here, not afraid to go anywhere around here. With the way things are going in this country, though, I'm beginning to think that owning a gun would be the best thing for my safety. If I get one, it'll be something easy to handle and shoot, like a .22, maybe.

43. I own a Walther P99 compact SA, look into it, wonderful action...

won't fit in a pocket well, but a small holster is ideal.

No safety, has a "decocker" feature after inserting the magazine. After decocking, first round is double action, about 11-12 #'s pull, all rest are single action, about 5#'s pull.

Extremely accurate, fits my smaller hands.

But it's in probate. So I don't quite own it.

But he committed suicide. With the gun. It's why he bought it.

And the fiduciary knows nothing of it. It's at my brother's. A federal firearms dealer. In his gun safe. And the local police granted me custody of the gun to prevent my mother, suffering from dementia, custody of the gun. I mean, she came at me with a knife, why would the cops let her have a gun?

So do I own a gun? Do I want to own *that* gun? Do I want to own a gun, in principle.

Why its part of probate is beyond me. Normally that stuff is outside any will unless it has special value (antique) or it was specifically given to an heir in the will. If there was no will then you will have to answer your last two questions as you see fit.

46. Yep, got a gun...

I started "carrying" legally several years ago because of the pre-Trump kooks. You can be sitting in a restaurant or shopping at Walmart and some wingnut might show up. I want to be in a position to defend myself if I can't find an escape exit...for me, it's just common sense.

During the past 6 months, I bought more guns...for the post-Trump kooks...I take their threats seriously and am very concerned as to how far they will go.

I'm not gun crazy or even fond of guns...soon as I started carrying, I took an online course in pistol shooting, safety and gun owner responsibilities. I know how to handle and shoot a pistol safely and I know what I can and can't do, legally. Trump's kooks are not as conscientious as me...

Doubt I could shoot a person. Don't like to think about it.

My gun nut friend took me to a shooting range to practice with his rifle once. I was pretty obnoxious about my support for Obama while there and pissed off several of the other customers.

After I took my turn hitting the target, one of the rednecks told me I had "a pretty good spread." I told him he'd have to buy me dinner first if he wanted to find out for sure. I did not make any friends that day. My proudest moment.

my husband thought we needed a couple of guns. I do not know where they are, I do not know where the ammo is and I have no idea why we needed them, it isn't like there are bears out here. They have never been used or needed. The funny thing is, my husband had never shot a gun before. I KNOW how to shoot, my dad taught me when I was just a wee little girl and I had to learn again when I worked at the zoo, just in case. I have probably shot no more than 20 times in my whole life nor do I care to ever do it again. The guns are well away from anywhere that is easily accessible. Makes a lot of sense doesn't it?

Maybe if I lived in a high crime area or had a specific threat I might consider it. As my statistics professor would say, if you think owning a gun makes you safer then you are mathematically challenged. That being said, I think if I was an ex-cop or military and extremely skilled and knowledgeable, I might consider it. I think someone extremely well trained is probably safer with a gun around.

The deer rifles which I can hit a salad plate sized target at 300 yards. The gun can shoot farther but 300 yards is my limit. At 100 yards I put 3 shots in the size of a penny. Many hunters think humane kills are important. If you canít hit where you aim you should not hunt. Vegans and vegetarians are free to criticize hunters. But if you eat meat you are paying someone else to do your dirty work. Hunters do it themselves. And get better meat.

Also have a .22 for squirrels and rabbits although have not hunted them in decades.

The idea that Democratic Party members donít own guns is crazy. Itís all about where you live.

90. I have quite a few.

I have a C&R FFL -- that's a "Curio-and-Relic Federal Firearms License," a license for collectors that allows me to purchase firearms over 50 years old or have been deemed "curios" by the ATF, foregoing the usual background check for each purchase. (I still have to have a background check for each purchase of any non-C&R firearm.) I have a small collection of vintage rifles, mostly WW II era, and Cold War era handguns from the Eastern Bloc: Russian, Czech, Bulgarian, Yugoslav. I also have more than a few "modern" firearms.

I compete in three target disciplines: trapshooting (shotgun), .22 rifle, and .22 pistol. I also have a permit to carry a concealed weapon. I live in a state that makes that a very difficult thing to get, and the powers-that-be have deemed me sufficiently trustworthy to have one.

The rate of ownership is likely higher than reflected.

Why would anyone want to answer it ďyes I own gunsĒ? Then have that used as proof down the road on a reason to do a house search?

Anyone residing in a state with no gun registration has no gains no benefit from letting others, especially others with opposing views, from knowing that answer; especially if the question is gun type specific.

The point being (from the non benefit of answering truthfully),in the event of an type of gun ban, make it so they canít prove or disprove you hand guns to hand over or if you handed them all over. You canít prove or disprove a negative. A court canít make a person prove they didnít dig a hole and stuff it with guns the court canít prove they ever had to begin with.

118. My daughter gave me a gun because I live way out in the country

I think I have shot it only about 3 times because Iím allergic to the gun powder and get an instant headache. A woman in my town taught me gun safety, but Iím definitely not into guns.

I live in rattlesnake country and was bitten by a rattler a few yrs ago and one of my dogs was bitten last month - so if rattlers are near my house, I kill them with big rocks.

119. I'd suggest a compressed-air rifle for your needs. No gunpowder, fine for small/medium game. n/t

126. I thought you could only own a gun as a gun owner.

130. Yes... quite a few.

Mostly antiques. Most I do not actually have live ammo for (or the ammo itself is antique and unfit for use).

I do have a few modern guns. I practice with them occasionally. I enjoy shooting them, but I hate gun culture, so I shoot them less than I otherwise would.

140. I own sporting firearms.

Nothing specifically designed for combat.

And I support gun control.

142. Yeah, but just an old-fashioned lever action

Not like I can't shoot it as fast as an AR.

143. Don't. Did one/once. My government trained me 2 major occasions. Support drivers license type rules.
