As for geer he would not even admit that shooting sports related to buisness gatherings as a means to promote buisness is just a popular as golf in his home state. And that a fact jack.
No blame for Bush. Merely a balancing of facts for the benefit of Jmac. We do want the proper historical context do we not?Quote:
to blame more shootings on Bush.
Historical context is far more valid in discussions than repeated, unsupported assertions.Quote:
A convenient target, but it doesn't move the discussion forward at all.
I would agree.Quote:
None of these discussions for or against gun bans really make any progress.
That's right. What's a few children more or less when compared to the freedom to shred paper targets or eviscerating squirrels?Quote:
You've got one side who wants to take freedom away from good americans in the name of saving a few lives with no regard to the cost of doing so, and another side who is tired of being made the "fall guy" for a vanishingly small group of people who cannot be trusted with freedom.
No problem except these weapons are repeatedly used in mass-shootings.Quote:
Let's me say that guns are not the problem. Access to guns is not the problem.
Which would argue that restricting access of these weapons to these people is a must.Quote:
Unless and until we, as a society, are prepared to do some difficult things and figure out why we have a class of people who wish to do harm to do other people, we will ALWAYS have that class of people.
I own more guns than some, less than others and less than what I'd like to.
Under the currently proposed legislation, I would be blocked future ability to purchase several weapons that I've got on my list to buy.
I'd like to get a 10/22 for the kids to play with. A fun .22 plinker is ALWAYS a hit. Might even look at an NFA model, assuming I could afford it.
I've given some thought to an AR. I've waffled on these before and haven't bought one to date. Maybe not one in .223, but a 6.8 Rem or an Ar-10 would be alright.
I want to pick up a nice double barreled shotgun, probably in 20 gauge, but I'd give some thought to a 28, just for 'snob appeal' It'll have to be a SxS, splinter fore end with a straight stock.
A Glock full sized pistol is on the list. I'm currently waffling between a 9, a 40 and a 45. Personally, I like BIG bores and I'd go for a .46 if they made one, but with others in the household, recoil is a factor which makes me lean towards a smaller bore.
An NFA subgun is on the list as well.
A .22 silencer for the 10/22
I've given some thought to buying a beat up older mil-surp rifle and making something of a project of it.
So, 3 of those would be regulated under the idiocy proposed by the idiot from California (the 10/22, the AR and the Glock in case you haven't been paying attention)
