Default I don't like guns

I got put on the spot during an "arguement" with a liberal/progressive/socialist idiot friend of mine, when he challenged me to state one thing, just and only one thing, I do NOT like about firearms. I suppose he was trying to get me to prove that I am not closed/single minded (although, admittedly, I am).

I had to think for awhile, but I gave him rather weak answer. Given my age and physical decline, I answered that with all the modern metalurgy in the 21st century, they are not made much lighter (recoil aside).

Put yourself in my place, and tell us what is the one (greatest) thing you do not like about firearms. I dare ya!

[Note: I posted this in the 1911 forum, because it is my "devil's idol."]

Now that's just a silly question. Guns are not people. They do not make policies. They don't have points of view. Your friend might as well asked "name one thing you don't like about hammers."

Because I hit my thumb with hammers by accident when trying to hammer a nail.

Really, nothing about the gun it's self bothers me. Anti gun politicians and media trying to take my rights away and telling false facts is what bothers me (pisses me off). Hopefully America will wise up to this.

If I had to pick one thing about the gun that I don't care for, it would be the noise. It would be sweet to be able to go through 100 rds of ammo without wearing ear protection. (and not spending tons of money on a supressor that could be used to buy more guns)
