    Hunters For Gun Control?

    This group may deserve some observation. Unsure of what to think of them.

    united we stand, divided we fall.

    Supporting another group is ok, but I say only in addition to the NRA, not instead of it. (not that I agree with everything the nra does, but please refer to sentence #1.

    From what I could tell, they are for limited gun ownership. If I am wrong, let me know, but that is how I read it. I don't think I will be sending them any donations.

    ...Moreover, an overwhelming majority of hunters support proposals like background checks to purchase guns, keeping military style assault weapons off our streets and the elimination of cop killer bullets.

    In recent years, extreme political positions purporting to support gun rights have jeopardized our sport and have hurt the image of responsible gun owners...
    Nah, I'll pass. They sound like the Brady Campaign but with more hunting pictures.

    Anytime anyone, anywhere, mentions "cop killer bullets" without quotation marks - it's time to move along...

    ETA - Leave it to the Washington Post to call this a pro gun group! Donkeys...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Yep! And not only that, this group specifically targeted a real PRO-GUN official in the form of Mr. Talent. Shameful!

    Is this an off shoot of the 'gun guys' who are really ANTI-GUN?

    "I see our issues as complementary to theirs," Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, says about Schoenke's association. "They're a positive group."
    Any group that the Brady Campaign to Promote Gun Violence finds as positive can not be good for gun owners.

    I read that in the paper this morning first with interest, than with horror. I don't think much of this group.

    Not an off-shoot, it's the same group of anti-gun slimeballs. If they're an off-shoot of anything, it's the Brady Bunch.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Field and Stream

    Field and Stream Magazine represents hunters who support gun control. Their chief editor wrote a piece defending Zumbo's statement that black rifles should be completely outlawed and have no place in decent society. In other words, my guns are ok but your guns are a menace. I was honestly shocked by how frankly and forthrightly they expressed views straight out of the Brady playbook.

    Outdoor Life may very well be in the same boat as Field n' Stream - but at least they feared the backlash and fired Zumbo and made a number of PR crafted statements regarding their support for the 2A. Field n' Stream, of course, made no such statements in support of the 2A, but spoke firmly in support of outlawing some types of guns.

    The whole thing with Jim Zumbo was enlightening because is showed the rift between traditional 'hunters' and the 'self defense' community. From that incident we learned who believes in the 2A and who does not.

    Last year I read about an anti-gun group that was disguising itself as a hunter group. Is this the same group?
