nah, you're fine blab. your concerns are understandable. i just think they can be addressed with solutions that present less risk to you and your loved ones than purchasing a gun does.

if i was not a white guy i would honestly think hard about purchasing some sort of firearm.

but then not being white would also make me very scared about doing so

in conclusion, guns and america are kind of crummy

i think it might be cool to have an antique WWI rifle or something.

or maybe a musket with one of those phonograph bore ends that i can use in an elmer fudd costume

guns are often pretty impressive pieces of engineering and even works of art in certain cases!

it's just, ya know, they kill huge numbers of people so they gotta go.

can you even get ammo for a gun that old tho?

the bayonet is the most dangerous part of it at this point, i'd think.

depending on which wwi rifle you are talking about, you can def get the ammo. typically people super into that stuff will also be into packing their own cartridges, which gives even more customization options. some of the older popular guns don't even have cartridges, and you pack in the powder etc for each shot the old fashioned way.

yeah, they still make muskets and most musket ammo can be used on older, antique weapons too because the technology hasn't evolved much. my dad has a musket, it's fun to play with.

yeah, in general, people are absolutely trash at assessing risk and probabilities and what means are effective for mitigation of those risks. gun perverts exploit that vulnerability.

we should absolutely ban videogames, though, for reasons outside of gun violence.

im a woman who takes public transit everywhere (even at night! alone! gasp!) and i can count the number of times ive felt unsafe due to strangers on one hand. it blows my mind that anyone could be scared enough of strangers that they own a machine capable of taking human life (and im not talking about cars here!)
