Muzzleloaders

It seems the anti-gun forces are seizing onto the idea that accused St. John's gunman Omesh Hiraman did not have to undergo a background check to buy a muzzleloader.
"No self-respecting criminal or gang-banger would ever buy one of these," a law enforcement source said. "But crazies - they love 'em."
On the lack of background checks for muzzleloaders:
"It's not a BB gun," said James Gannalo, a retired NYPD officer and ballistics expert. "It's a lethal weapon if the person fires it into a human being."
Yeah right, Mr. Gannalo, knives and screwdrivers are lethal weapons if they are jabbed into a human being, automobiles are lethal weapons if they are intentionally driven into a human being..........Do you advocate background checks on those as well?

I love my blackpowder pistol.

I guess that makes me crazy.

(But we already knew that.)

I'm not aware of any child who was killed by a screwdriver they accidentally found hidden in a tool shed.

Guns kill people much more effectively. That's why they are bought and that’s why they are fired.

Deal with it.

If guns are there simply to kill people, mine must all be defective.
