Notice that they do not go after the items that mainstream hunters or sportsmen use but instead they concentrate on small items that do not have massive support.
    Bayonet lugs? We can give that up. My deer rifle or duck gun don't need one.
    Thirty round mags? If you can't hit a deer with one shot you shouldn't be hunting.
    Machine guns? The Constitution was never meant to allow anything but muskets.

    Gun control advocates know exactly what they are doing. They know that taking away someones liberties needs to be done slowly in a way that does not at first appear to directly harm the majority of people who own weapons.
    This is done the same way you would eat an elephant. One bite at a time.

    Oh, I agree with you. I should have been more clear: None of the anti-gun actions make any sense to anyone else.

    Thanks

    Here's a follow-up.

    Why gun prohibitionists have lost traction, relevance

    One might think that after years of practice, the gun prohibition lobby would understand that worn out platitudes and broad brush wish lists packaged as a canned response to some new violent outrage no longer get any serious traction with the public.

    Dave,

    I appreciate your preaching... to the choir.

    Many of the folks that I come up against that are so anti.. simply do not have a clue... They don't know the difference between an assault rifle and a Glock... a semi automatic or a revolver... Some want to ban all "military" weapons... that would include shotguns and handguns too, I suppose...

    They want to make it harder to get guns.. they want to make it harder to change ... ahem... clips... they want to limit rounds in a mag to 30 for rifles; and what, 10 for handguns..?

    But one of the "funniest" (hmmm... not ha ha) things that one said to me... when I explained to her the myriad ways you cannot legislate inanimate objects, gun laws are useless, "Gun Free Zones" are ironic folly... she responded with "Laws don't mean anything, I mean, if murder were not illegal, there are lots of people that would be on my list..."

    Well, there's one gal I don't want to have any guns... and probably at the root of why she's so anti... she probably doesn't trust herself...

    Deep rooted animosity towards "evil guns" is bred of some other root cause.

    Well, it's not "preaching to the choir" because I have a pretty broad readership. However (comma), I know a fair number of folks will utilize the arguments or information they glean from my screed to carry on their own preaching missions to the vast unscrubbed.

    And that works for me.

    I'm amazed at some of the folks who read my junk that's been forwarded to them by a gunnie.

    I think violence in the media is the problem. Music, TV and movies glamorize thug life. Plain and simple the kids growing up get the tattoos, drugs, join gangs, guns to look big time to friends and foes as it is in the media.....
