Common sense means we should focus on criminals not guns. But this nation elected Obama twice there is no common sense apparently

I appreciated the few videos I saw on your channel. You just picked up another subscriber. I have been teaching gun control for a very long time now. Newbies are much easier to teach then those who are set in their ways or have bad habits.

According to Joe Biden we don't have the manpower to enforce the laws on the books. So we are going to make more laws that we don't have the manpower to enforce.

Your thoughts?????
Wisdom is MUCH more expensive than education in terms of time, money, and possibly health. Education is supposed to convey to the student what has been previously learned, reducing the "cost" of information to the student and others. An educated and intelligent person can use their knowledge and intelligence to reduce the "cost" of gaining wisdom.

But it does not work that way in the real world!
More ideology probably taught by a over educated idealistic idiot!

Every single person I know who says they do not like guns, when I've offered to take them to my gun club and they go....

Big smile when they shoot a gun for the first time.

100% of the time.

Say what now? Did you teach yourself to read and write? What about mathematics or literature?

I taught myself how to work on my VW beetle when I was in Jr. High and High School, but a shop class would have been darn helpful and would have certainly sped up the process.

The things "best learned by experience" are the things that are most difficult for students to accept from a teacher. For example, most young men won't accept that "there is always somebody tougher" until they meet an example of such.

I am educated enough and burnt on idealism by experience, IMO.

Huh?

Sorry, I don't get the point you are trying to make.

Of course education is great, but....no substitute for experience.

Let me share MY experience.

I am 51 years old.

I was raised by parents who loved me beyond words and they REQUIRED me to work HARD for everything I wanted. If I wanted a new bike...guess what...I worked to earn money to pay for it. They would tell me, you earn enough money to pay for 70% of it, and we will pay the rest. I did.

I worked jobs from the time I was old enough to push a lawn mower and make money. I had a FULL 40 hour a week job every summer from the time I was 15 years old. I worked hard to put myself through college, my parents did the best they could. But I put in 30 hours a week cleaning toilets and what-not at my school. I snagged a job on Saturdays, eight hours every Saturday on top of that for $5 an hour in Chigago. I worked 38 hours a week and went to school full time.

I loved it.

Pampering parents are the problem these days.

Education?

Sure. I have a bachelors and masters degree in my profession and am close now to a doctorate.

Working hard for what I got makes me appreciate it.

Education? I love it. Work? No substitute. Experience? You bet.

I learned as much from the former Marine who was my crew chief on a land surveying crew as I did in any class I ever took. I learned what it means to get your job done, well.

It was hard physical labor, out in the "field" all day, in hot Florida summers land surveying huge plots of land. We went out at 7 in the morning, got home around 5.

So, there you go.
