    Pull some Psychology out on them. What they are displaying is classic Projection. Basically, since they don't trust themselves with guns, they can't trust anyone else with guns. :D

    At least as a furry, you have a lot of concealment options! ;)

    Wish I could post anonymously in response to the paragraphless guy.

    Usually my response to those kinds of people is to quote them almost verbatum, substituting "seat belt" for gun.

    Like lately I've been complaining back to people that if they're so paranoid about crashing that they have to wear a seat belt, they should take some "martial driving" lessons, and get a car alarm, and start working out, instead. Those'll really keep ya from dying in a crash, yep.

    Usually doesn't get through, but they usually do make some really funny facial expressions.

    edit: Oh, and that "up close and personal wid da dag" is total BS. Less than three feet, less than three shots, less than three seconds. The difference is that most bleeding from gunshot wounds is internal, while knife wounds have a higher chance of bleeding externally. That, combined with real "contact" distance, greatly increase your chances of exposure to HIV, hepatitis, etc.

    "Furry"?

    Furry is a category of fantasy dedicated to anthropomorphics: fictional animal characters given human personalities and characteristics. I.E. Bugs Bunny and the like.

    Furry fans, sometimes referred to as furries or furs for short, are eager for more material than is available from mainstream publishers. The demand is filled by fellow fans – amateur to professional artists, writers, and publishers who produce drawings, paintings, stories, independent comic books, fanzines, Web sites and even small press books.

    The comic hosted at this website entitled "Better Days" is a good example of furry and is firearms related to boot!! BONUS!!

    Hard to really describe a Furry in all honesty while staying on the High Road, so I will do the best I can.

    Rather than give my opinion of what I have always seen Furries to be, I give this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furry
    A much more even-handed definition than what I have seen in my expierence.

    So, I will just leave it at that.

    <edit> You can get an entirely different view at: http://www.portalofevil.com/search.php

    Every side has their extremists.

    To bad they are the ones who are the loudest and get the most attention.

    As a LJ member (if not a furry) I had to chime in. It beats working. :D

    Furry, Hmmm?

    This is a subculture I have never heard of before. God Bless the Internet. Learn something new every day...

    Ya know, all the years I've been an LJ'er and I never joined the Guns community. I'll try to remember to do that...


    I'll dunno what to say on the furries...whatever gets your rocks off I guess. Or maybe 'It takes all kinds?'

    Hm, I wonder how many here are furs, that's something I didn't quite expect - culture blending gets me every time! :D



    Other good comics would be Nip and Tuck and Under the Lemon Tree.

    Hi, I'm a Gunfur!

    On the comics front, I like Better Days ( http://www.jaynaylor.com/betterdays ) because I like the way Mr. Naylor thinks (for gun attraction, one of the characters ends up purchasing a revolver and getting training for personal protection!), and Ozy and Millie ( http://www.ozyandmillie.org/ ) just because it's so unfathomably cute.

    Speaking of the "fandom" in general, the average furry is just your Joe Average who happens to dig anthropomorphic animals. Unfortunately, we're principally characterized by... those people. The kind of people the media always picks to characterize whatever subculture they're picking on today. You get the fursuiters and the plushophiles and the folks who get the leopard (sp?) spot pattern tattooed over every inch of their bodies, the kind of people who look down their nose at "normal" people and think themselves superior just because of their preference in fantasies. For the same reason sheeple tend to think that all gun-owners are retarded are paranoid, insane hicks with millions of rounds of ammunition in their mattresses and plots to assassinate their politician of choice, sheeple tend to think that all furries wear fursuits in public, have sex with plush toys, and are all socially awkward freaks who can't get "yiffed" without the benefit of others' fetishism.

    Man, that's one convoluted paragraph, but I've got neither the time nor the patience to edit it proper-like.

    On the political side of things, I've found furries hold the standard array of beliefs. I've chatted with leftist hippies and right-wing tinfoil-hatters, I've talked with gunfurs and people who squerk at mere mention of firearms, people who think War is the root of all evil and people who think War is the cure for any evil, and all that jazz.

    Er, yeah, sorry for the incoherent post.

    ~Slam_Fire
    Dangit, Walking Arsenal beat me to the "Better Days" reference.

    I'm afraid that I've been scarred for life when it comes to furries by the ones who are aroused by images of humanoid skunks with multiple sets of equipment performing sexual acts on humanoid mongooses, also with one or more sets of equipment.

    On this one forum, we had this resident commie leftist guy named 'Cigarskunk'. Cigarskunk railed long and hard about how only a tiny minority of furs brought all the negative attention, that most of them aren't sexual, etc. Then someone googled his name and found a video of him and his friends at a "con" which involved an as-god-made-her female human, a plush skunk toy, and a "marital aid", along with several explicit drawings commissioned by him.

    He kinda faded away.

    I've gotta say though that if anyone who is Pro RKBA, I don't care if they get it on with fido or (of age) people of their own family or using accessories that would never enter my mind. Honestly that's just their own business.

    Molon Labe! :)

    Close Blackburn; but you've got some details mixed up. Cigarskunk is actually a rightwing republican gunowner. He also didn't fade away from that other forum but changed his name.

    Mods, I would recommend you carefully watch this thread. On this other forum that Blackburn mentions this subject ended up causing much acrimony and infighting amongst otherwise friendly posters.

    The mods and posters there still go into apoplexy whenever the word furry is mentioned.
