Golf Clubs
« on: November 17, 2015, 05:52:04 PM »
I noticed a couple of things recently.  One was another spiel by an anti gun writer about how there are more guns than there are people in the US to shoot them (as if this was a new revelation) and several articles on people who were killed by golf clubs.  So I have a proposal.  I think we should limit all golfers to only one club.  It's ridiculous that there are more golf clubs than there are golfers.  What person needs more than one club to hit a little white ball?  You can only use one at a time right?  One club should be plenty for each golfer and it should eliminate or at least cut down on deaths that are caused by golf clubs.  After all if golf clubs are killing people it stands to reason that if there were less golf clubs there would be less golf deaths.  So I propose a federal law that limits all golfers to only one club.  That should fix the problem...  But then this guy killed his girl friend with a tire iron.  I'm not sure I want to give up my tire iron... and most people only have one per car, but then we could allow only one tire iron per person and they could take it from car to car.  That should help...

I'd say more people are killed by knives than by golf clubs, tire irons or any number of other things, like bricks, rocks, baseball bats.  What chef, even, let alone amateur cooks, needs more than one knife.  And it should have a serial number. 

I like your premise, though.  The fact is, I know people who own golf clubs and don't even play golf.  Should they be allowed to own even one golf club?

They say most murders happen in the kitchen because of the knives and rolling pins.

If we licensed all of the golf clubs we could eliminate all of those non-golfers with clubs and if we limit golfers to just one club we could probably reduce the number of golf clubs in the US by at least 95% if not more.  That, of course, will reduce golf club deaths by at least that amount right?  And who in the world needs more than one golf club.  It's not like you can use one in each hand...

If we outlawed golf clubs.., then only outlaws would have golf clubs

I don't want to outlaw them, just limit golfers to only one registered (and serial numbered) club...  But yes, if we outlawed them only outlaws would have golf clubs...  I mean I don't want to interfere with the sporting use of golf clubs, just the violence.  It's more likely you will have a golf club used against you than you will defend yourself with one...

Maybe not, when playing golf I there is a limit on how many you can have in your bag.  I do usually have a few more, no one has ever said anything though.  I guess like having a 30 round clip.  You also have pockets here and there around on your golf bag.  Some for balls, tees and etc.  I have a 1911 45 in one. 


Happy golfing

Maybe we should require a background check to ensure the person is actually a golfer. This could weed out those non golfers and golfer wannabees.

And that they are a member of a golf club.  What use does anyone have for golf clubs if they aren't a member of some golf organization...

You need to find a golf club buyback program and get those dangerous things out of your barn before they attack someone!

I'm not selling mine in no buy back.  I ain't good at golf, but I can hit a moving target, be it a person or their cart at a couple hundred yards.  Sometimes I might even holler  FOUR just before it gets them, or after.


Good golfing

Maybe I will take up golfing after all these years. That sounds like fun.  :grin:

It can be Jim, sometimes with friends you may not use all the rules.  I had a good foot wedge.  Ha ha.  Now days I only go a couple of times a year.

I could probably play an entire 18 decently with a 9 iron. Wasn't the "two girls one club" motif played out in the movie Tin Cup?

As a kid, my Dad loved golf and attempted to turn my wicked slice-self into a Tiger Woods. Didn't happen. Now, I think i'd appreciate golf more if it involved the heavy use of landmines.

I'm no golfer, but the best I've played was with just a six iron and a putter... I'm not good at adjusting from one weight to another... but then I'm not good at it at all...
