Am I a Scrooge?

Pure opinion here, but I’m really uncomfortable hearing the term “fun gun.” Couple reasons:

1) *Every* firearm is fundamentally a very serious tool. None are toys, none are playthings. You pick up a gun and you hold a very sobering responsibility.

2) Frivolous use of money & time says a lot about a person/culture. I see mag dumps and wonder whether that money could have bought someone a meal or help fix a hurricane.

Shooting a gun is definitely enjoyable (unless you’re that journalist!), but I don’t usually see as much sobriety or rationality as I’d hope.

You do you, but I think gun owners could prevent a lot of cultural misunderstanding if they’d just act a bit more like adults.
