Perfect reply to calls for gun control seen on a social media post:If you don’t know what a 4473, Form 4, or 922(r) is, do not know what the dates 1934, 1968, 1986, 1994 and 2004 mean, cannot explain the difference between shall-issue and may-issue, or a 03 SOT versus an 02 SOT, then you are not prepared to articulate any useful opinion on the state of gun law in this country and you should do your homework before speaking.

I figure after building 80% receivers, filing both form 1 and form 4 tax stamps, applying for and keeping a CHL over 20 years, knowing the ins and outs of pistol vs SBR, living through the AWB and buying a CETME the DAY it sunsetted... I am a n expert on gun control.
As opposed to someone who has never touched a gun and just “feels something should be done”
Found in the gunshows all across America, the Fuddite pursues his bolt-action, wood-stocked 40-year-old Remington with a zeal known only to a few gun owners. He can be seen on the range in October, often firing 3 -5 rounds, then packing up and heading for home, confident "his rig" will bag him a deer or an elk, and that nothing will go wrong with the rifle on the shoot. Often, the Fuddite can be found staring diconsolately at other gun owners who have weapons he disapproves of, like self-loading arms. "Whatcher need all dem bullits fer, son? Cain't you gits him on da firs' shot?" he'll ask, a barely contained sneer apparent to all on his face.

I just cannot believe the attitude that some guys have on the hunting blogs I'm a member of. Many are OK with gun control. A few even want AR's and AK's to be classified Type III weapons, and have required training and insanely high fees for permits to own them.
Some of them want a total ban on "Assault" (I hate that term) rifles...and a total ban on magazines that hold more than 5 rounds. They actually think this will end the mass shootings. I think that they mistakenly believe that THEIR hunting rifles are safe. They're willing to give in to the likes of FeinSwine, Schumer and Pelosi and relinquish their second amendment rights. Crazy!

I think many of these types are either democrats or squishy republican hunters that don't care about others rights as gun owners. It might be wise for us gun owners to start writing or emailing our congresscritters, president and state govt. reps and try to discourage them from enacting anything harmful to our rights.

Honestly, to me an AR, AK or such is meh but I do own several because I want to and do stage a couple just in case. Do I truly need them? Nope, BUT I do need to have my rights stepped all on. I do need a .458Lott ... there aren’t dangerous game within a 1000 miles of me but I don’t want my right as a law abiding citizen to have the right stripped. I don’t need a vehicle that goes over say 85mph but I think most all driver do ... but I’m pretty sure every new vehicle out there can. To me it’s not about the specific item it’s about the principal and the precedent it is setting. I would not miss my ARs that much but three steps down the line when they come for the next step in “common sense” gun control the slope is so steep we won’t be able to stand up for our rights.

I just watched the news coverage on FOX with all of the students protesting in Tallahassee, FL, overwhelming State Legislators demanding Gun Control to prevent future School Shootings. It appears that the Democrats and the Gun Control Crowd are using the uniformed young emotional students to promote gun control. Then have another major protest planned for March in Washington DC, which will garner major News Coverage.
All of the young speakers demonized the NRA and the politicians that take political donations from the NRA.
I wouldn't be surprised if Bloomberg offers to donate money to these groups to carry his message forward.
