When i think about those people, i think they are all anti-gunners.. Any PETA's in here can honestly say they are not anti-gunners?
PETA People Eating Tasty Animals? I am one. I am not anti gun.
some questions i would rather not see the answers too. ask yourself this, and you might have your answer.
Does PETA like hunting/hunters?
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'
Prepare for the worst, hope for the best!
I'm sure it's a stereotype but I always view PETA members as modern hippies so I can't see them thinking is necessary to use a gun for anything.
I'm sure most of the hardcore PETA people are. While I am for treating animals with some degree of respect, there is a point where you have to realize that people are above critters in the order of things....except for dogs. Dogs are better than us all.
IMHO I believe that "true" PETA people are against killing anything,and are among the "Run Away" crowd instead of the defend yourself crowd. They seem to live in a fantasy world that if you just give them what they want they won't harm you.
But I'm sure there are people that love animals and don't want to see them hurt,and when it comes to themselves and family feel the same way,and may have an unloaded gun in a closet or cupboard somewhere for SD and have no idea how little time they have to employ the weapon in a real situation.

I don't know about that but I have to be verrrrry careful. My miniature Dachshund is always threatening to call PETA with baseless charges.
Maybe... Probably... Not being a PETA member I can't say. What I do know is that being passionate about humane treatment of animals doesn't have to make one an anti gunner. I'd be proof of that. I despise cruelty and mistreatment of animals.Are all PETA's anti-gunners?
"Look men!! There is Jackson standing like a stone wall"!!
Well. I am not quite a PETA member. But I am a vegetarian (not vegan). Once in awhile when I do eat meat it is free range (about once every few months). Dairy and eggs organic. I agree with a lot of PETA but like everything else that can be good they have turned fanatical. I am opposed to hunting for the sport of it. Like paying a guide money and travelling 1000 miles so you can put a trophy on your wall I am opposed to. No problems with folks hunting for food. Sooo, do I own guns?
Duh! I have over 20. I know a lot of folks like me (wife and others) that are the same. So we are out there. To answer your question:card carrying members of PETA-NO
How do you expect them to protect lab rats from evil scientists? A letter-writing campaign?
I kid, I kid.
I think a person in PETA could find many uses of guns to be distasteful while still enjoying the concepts of guns. I'm pro-human, but often wonder at the anti-human attributes of a firearm I'm admiring.
Statistically, dementia is one of the greatest defeatable threats to my loved ones. We currently pay 1000x more managing the disease than we do looking for a cure.
Also, the whole thing about hunters helping out the over population of deer and other animals and how it is good for them all I can say is I have never heard of a hunter, wake up early in the morning, get his son out of bed and toss him a rifle and say 'come on Junior, we need to go help the deer out there by hunting.
Don't get me wrong. I said if you are hunting for the SOLE purpose of food I have zero problems. And it does help with over population. But hunters do not do it for that primary reason.
Mot all members are anti-gun or even anti hunting. Some do not fully understand the extremism of the groups leaders. I personally have known members who believed that PETA was not out to stop ethical use of animals but was only trying to stop needless torture of animals. I'm a hunter and former trapper and I support the idea of ethical treatment. I believe in quick humane kills for that reason. I have killed livestock but did it in the quickest most humane way possible. I might consider being a member myself if it were not for the radical side of the group. Who among us isn't for the humane treatment of animals?
Many of these groups depend on the fact that most donors do not fully understand what their donations are used for.
Just look at how many NRA members are also AARP members. They think that the AARP is a fine organization who's only interest is in offering lost cost insurance for seniors. They do not know the anti-gun leftist side of the group.
I know many hunters who do have the species' interest in mind. QDMA programs use biology to determine how many deer can live in an area. Quotas are calculated every year solely to maintain the herd.
Hunter conservation groups have done more for animal populations than PETA ever will.
