My last little insight on this whole assault rifle ban/ gun ban...whatever the case turns out to be.
Some people like to play 18 holes of golf on the weekend. Some might like hitting the malls and outlet malls on the weekends. Some might just like to go to the lake and have fun for the weekend. Whatever floats your boat.
My buddies and I? This is what we do on the weekends when we get a chance. Be it AR-15s Saiga pump 12 gauge shotguns, pistols that hold 17+1 with a standard magazine. It doesn't matter. This is what we love to do. We love to talk about guns on the regular, and even bring all of our weapons together on the weekend, and just shoot. We all pitch in on the cost of ammo, and have a blast.
Take that how you want to take it, but that's our life outside of our families, and work.
Respect other people's rights and liberties. Don't let a crazy mother fuger killing people in theaters and elementary schools dictate the rest of us legal and responsible gun owners.
Hell the Panthers definitely come in 2nd behind my rights to bear arms.
Hmm a hobby vs. responsible attempts to try and get less people killed, thats a tough choice.
Car enthusiasts have lived with more and more restrictive emissions laws, my particular hobby has gone through a lot of chemical safety laws, R/C pilots find their spaces shrinking...
I think you all can have as much fun with any reasonable restrictions as not. It's not like you are complaining that you cant have fun without shooting off howitzers today or something.
