This is a SINGLE SHOT PELLETT rifle. It does NOT encourage violence anymore than a knife encourages violence. One of the things that a knife is meant for is for self-defense and killing things. Shall we rag on WOOT for selling knives too? Ban knife sales too? Rat poison, raid, ant spray, etc… sold at almost all retail home centers are 100% meant for killing…shall we ban those too?
Did you know that even the cubscouts and the boyscouts teach gun & archery safety using real bow&arrows and bb/pellet rifles. Do you think that the cub/boyscouts are being taught to be violent?

Probably the same as others: any act that causes harm or intends to do harm against another person. You can further expand this to animals, physical property, etc….
What is your point? Just because someone owns a PELLET rifle, it does not make the owner a violent person. You do know that people like to “plink” with these pellet rifles (as opposed to killing people). Plinking is essentially shooting at inanimate targets.

Such a loaded comment: There are so many things that ail our society, not just the gun debate issue. Racism, prejudice, greed, lack of parenting/too much coddling for young kids, economy (both macro and micro), inability for our politicians to work TOGETHER for the betterment of our society as opposed to arguing who is wrong who is right, people thinking they are entitled to things without earning them (entitlement), etc etc…pick your poison.

WOOT is selling a PELLET rifle NOT an actual firearm. You are bringing the gun debate on the sale of a PELLETT rifle. Your personal opinion to the gun debate is yours and are most definitely welcome to it…but this is a PELLETT rifle not an actual firearm.
Please define what other objects people are using to defend guns. What objects are you talking about? Yes, guns are dangerous, but not more so than the person behind the gun. If the person is a responsible gun owner, they take proper precautions to safeguard those around them as well as the weapons (ie proper training/practice, proper discussion, safe/lockbox, trigger lock, etc…).
Sorry to fellow wooters. I posted on the first page of this string. This will be my last for this product for this sale. I just dont understand people bringing the gun debate issue to a PELLETT rifle.
