    Clueless or just uninformed?

    One of my Uncles dropped by today. He's about 70, has hunted deer & upland game for as long as I can remember and is definitely pro-gun.
    Anyway, while he was here I showed him my newest acquisition, a Bushmaster AR.
    I handed it to him, he did a glance around the room (nobody there but me and him) and said in a low voice "Where did you get this?"
    Told him I got it at the gunshow last month.
    "Aren't they illegal?"
    I told him it wasn't.
    "Is it full auto?".
    Again I told him it wasn't.

    An hour or so before that, another Uncle about the same age had dropped by. First thing he asked was "Where's that .223 you got at the gunshow?" Showed it to him, his only question was if I was set up to reload for it yet.
    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

    I would call it uninformed. I have spoken to several people through the years that have thought that full auto and suppressors are ilegal as well. You should see the looks I get when I tell them that they aren't illegal, just highly regulated.

    Some get that curious look, others get a confused look. Rarely do I see the terrified look.

    Uninformed about the evil-looking black rifles. Uninformed about the power of the people and the duly-constituted authority, in the USA. A good opportunity to softly reacquaint him, it looks like.
