If the majority spent their weekends punching paper, there would need to be more shooting ranges around, than there are churches.

Sadly, you are correct. I am guilty, have one that has been in the safe for two years, never shot it. My other one has gotten some range time though. Don't know why I'm assembling two more...

I have everything he had, in the barn and so many radio controlled electronics around, to detonate it on command.
Just don't pismeoff

Be careful, the left lack common sense and take things so literal. Just look at the calls for treason on Trumps tongue and cheek comment about the Russians.

Maybe we should change the term gun control to people control. They seem to think we want to put guns in jail and sentence them to death.

What lying are you alluding to ? Just curious.

Wow. That would be cool. Do I even dare ask how much a day at the range costs?

What is it, anyway? A vintage piece? There any history behind it?

As for the OP.... I think that as a general statement, it's not too far off the mark, but not a universal truth by any means. Come to Kentucky, and I'll take you up into the hills. All my friends up there are registered as Democrats, but I want to be out of the line of fire when you ask them to turn in their firearms.

Why did you think you got me?

You would get the giggles, with my Thompson trench broom(Tommy gun)

The BAR may be a little much, for a first timer.

The right to keep and bear arms for self defense passed in the Supreme court with a vote of 5-4.
Scalia is no more and many of the others are very old and likely have a limited shelf life. If elected Hillary will appoint liberal justices that could easily overturn the Heller Decision...... so yea, she has a vision of a gun free America at some time in the future.

From what I have come to gather from my hunting buddies, in a small town, there are more fully automatic small arms in the hands of the public(people), than the government thinks exist.

As our ancestors pass on to the other side, we tend to acquire their stuff.

According to the Constitution, that should have been a 9-0 vote in favor of upholding the 2nd amendment as written. The fact it had 4 votes to restrict rights not granted to us by government or the supreme court, is the scariest thing of all.

That it is. And if HRC get's elected this will be one of the many rights we will lose. To some, which seems like the majority of our country they just don't care. As long as they have hi speed internet, 4g , pokemon go, etc. they will just keep on keeping on like a heard of sheep.

It goes to show that we have justices that are not interested in protecting the constitution that they were sworn to uphold. We must keep others like them off the bench.
