austin said...

just sayin' said...

no.

laura ramona said...

No

cebii said...

no.

Moose said...

I bought one after Columbine. That was when it seemed to me it was time to learn to protect your home and loved ones. I went and learned proper handling technique, and keep it safely stored.

With my eyesight? Are you kidding? I barely even trust myself with a knife!

Lisa said...

No. I don't live in Orange County.

sandybrook said...

Actually this guy lived in my county Brevard, his brother lives in Orange County.

Glitter said...

No, but my husband and son do.

Krispyc said...


Never.

Gator said...

Nope, never have. Contrary to what foreigners think, many Americans have never owned one.

hothotheat said...

Yes. A) I'm a Texan, we love our guns and B) I've been mugged twice and beaten (once), I've had someone follow me home and try to get into my home through the back door (with my dogs barking their heads off and me on the phone with 911). Self protection. Plus it' a small pistol, not an assault rifle.

Many. Legal ones. Lifetime NRA member. My guns have not and will never load themselves and go shoot someone. Besides if the fact that the Vegas guy had so many illegal guns shows gun control doesn’t work. It’s amazing, too, that 9 months after the election they still harp on Russia when 12 hours after this they say Isis claim
Of responsibility is none. Took 48
Hours for Isis connections to show
Up in Orlando nightclub shooting. Uneducated liberals are a domestic terrorist group.

Really. That's what you got out of that simple question. SMDH.

No I don't own one but I use to shot my uncles gun for hunting when I was younger.

Spiffypaws said...

I own 1 9mm, reluctantly. My partner and me both bought handguns about a year ago. He has a concealed carry permit and I'm about to get mine. We go to the gun range about once a month to practice. Just too many crazy people with 2 many guns in SE Florida where we live. I would gladly turn mine in if stricter gun control laws were enacted.

BlissBoo said...

American, no gun. Kung Fu. If I die, I die.

Dannette said...

My partner has one.

Cee Kay said...

Nope. I'm Canadian and I don't hunt, so why the hell do I need a gun?

Lisa said...

@sandybrook, I didn't know his brother lived there. Just wrote that because it seems everyone in Orange County has a gun.

Gina Sherrard said...

Yep, many and all legal, locked up safe and I am licensed to carry the handguns. I also have rifles and shotguns. I live in the country (in Texas) there are snakes, and skunks and yep a couple of rabid coyotes after my chickens. I won't even tell you about the guy that I nearly castrated when he was trying to break into my house. No assault rifles as you all call them and think of them (although it is wrong)

Elizabeth Smith said...

Lol "uneducated liberals". The more educated you are the more likely you are to be liberal, less educated more likely to be conservative.

meagan said...

Nope. Never felt the need to have one.

masquedance said...

No way in the world would I own one. I lost my beloved mother to suicide by a family heirloom gun and have passionately hated them ever since. Granted, my reason isn't political, and for a brief period of time in my twenties my ex talked me into carrying one for safety due to my late night school and work schedule. Needless to say I no longer have it and will never have another one in any home I live in.

TellMeLies said...

No, my history of depression knows that it would be VERY dangerous for me to own a quick fix to my problems.

Ides of March said...

Yes I own a gun and I don't feel the need to shade liberals or conservatives in this space.
