Talking What is the primary reason you own guns?

Just a simple question. I know guns are used for a lot of different reasons, just wanting to see what's most popular.

I'm with the others. Need to add "it is our right" to the poll, then add the selection of "all of the above" ... then I can answer accurately.

Why, need a reason; its our right.

This is like asking why guys like to fish or tune their cars.

I frankly don't have an express reason why, but its a combination of all the above minus hunting.

Add an "All of the above" option and I'll click that.

Ditto. All of the above.

I own rifles for hunting, protection and sporting purposes.
I own shotguns for hunting, protection and sporting purposes.
I own hand guns for protection and sporting purposes.

And as a big bonus, I own all of them because it really pisses off the anti gun, whack job, liberals.

I'm not saying you need a reason just curious. I think if I owned a gun it would be for all 4 but primarily would be used for hunting and protection while hunting. I'm all for the good guys having more guns than the bad guys though. I think a basic shotgun would be a good start for me. I can hunt about anything with it I guess. I have too bad of a temper to have a concealed handgun, think it would lead to more harm than good but have no problem with ya'll packin.
