Someone has just broke into your house and they are armed, are you? Personally I would like to be armed in this situation so I could protect myself. This is one of the reasons that make me feel that guns are good. Guns can be used in many ways but I have chosen three. They are good because we can use them for entertainment, hunting, and protection. These are all very good reasons of why guns are good and why you should own one. Some people think guns should be banned completely but hopefully after this speech you are not one of those people. So how bout we get to how guns can be used for entertainment. Guns have many uses of entertainment but when I think of it only a few pop into my mind. These are rifles shotguns and pistols. Rifle shooting …show more content…
You can use rifles for long-range competitions to better your accuracy at long ranges or they can be used to compete against other marksmen. Rifles are probably the safest and most fun way to blow stuff up with Tannerite.

This is fun because you just place the Tannerite in the object you would like to blow up and shoot at it from a safe distance. It is entertaining and a good way to blow things clean out of existence.

I wouldn’t either; this is why guns are good for trophy hunts. All you have to do is go out and track that animal down for a couple of days and when you finally see it you can easily take a shot at it from a safe distance and you have your trophy, the 10 by 10 everyone has been talking about for 3 years. The other reason for sport hunting is bragging rights. Since you shot the biggest buck in town you can brag about it for a long time to all your friends until they shoot one bigger than you. But don’t get ahead of yourself
