Here is why I am displeased with Zumbo:
This is from the Congressional Record!!!!!!!
His words are now being used against ALL firearm owners!ASSAULT WEAPONS
"Mr. LEVIN. Mr. President, the National Rifle Association leadership has stated repeatedly that a ban on assault weapons is ineffective and unnecessary. They assert that guns labeled as assault weapons are rarely used in violent crimes and that most people use them for hunting. However, despite these repeated assertions, the list of people speaking out against assault weapons continues to grow." ...
"We all owe Jim Zumbo a debt of gratitude for his forthrightness, his honesty and his courage. We must put the safety of our communities first by taking up and passing sensible gun legislation that includes renewing the assault weapons ban."
Many gun owners feel the same way he does, they think the Second Amendment has to do with hunting & sport shooting.They think no one has any justification to own 'assault weapons'....that is an ill- informed & dangerous assumption. Our society is so uneducated in the Constitution & Bill of Rights, that is what separates the USA from ALL other countries. All this trouble due to a lack of proper education on the basic principles this country was founded on!
This is why & how we are where we are.........for years politicians on the left have gotten elected by saying......"I'm not going to take your hunting arms away.....see, even I go a huntin'....". They have successfully brainwashed a large portion of the general public to that effect. Many people that I know, that own firearms, feel this way.........IT'S WRONG!. The only way to get this across to people is education on the subject........The alternative is not a good one..............
Do I feel sorry for Zumbo?......You bet, I think his apology was sincere & I think he has learned that maybe hunting firearms isn't what the Second Amend. is about. He should have known prior to his article, but alas, he didn't."In America, freedom and justice have always come from the ballot box, the jury box, and when that falls, the cartridge box." - Steve Symms, U.S. Senator, Idaho
Now his words are being used against all of us.............
