Thank you very much for posting this. It's true that this is a common mistake. I hope they keep working to improve Kevlar and hopefully one day, make a bomb-resistant material. Also, I hope that Kevlar expands to police hats and some kind of face protection for criminals who aren't messing around.
I think it would impair but not destroy our ability to hunt. People were hunting with spears and bows and arrows and swords before guns existed. Some hillbilly (I do not use this word in a derogatory manner; many people call themselves this) cultures use traps and other methods. Mainly, this is so that the sound of a guns doesn't scare off other animals, as guns are noisier when shot in the woods than in most other areas. I think that hunting is a biological imperative. I have no malice toward vegetarians (I even eat vegetarian meals at least two or three times a week); I just think that our bodies need meat, otherwise we wouldn't be able to digest it. I try to not go overboard; I think our bodies need balance. We are omnivores, not carnivores or herbivores.
A lot of people have chimed in on both sides of the gun debate. One thing we all seem to agree on is that people who own guns should be responsible. What have you been taught about gun safety? What tips do you have for people?
