It would be highly interesting to see the national Steel Challenge Championships moved from Montrose CO to DC wouldn't it? Imagine the stir a thousand or so shooters showing up in our nations capitol to burn a few thousand rounds apiece with some tricked out race guns would cause.. The hoplophobes would have an apoplexy. I would make it a personal mission to make it to that match.

Congratulations to the largest lobbyist group in American politics.


And my condolences to those who will lose their lives as a result.

Those that were going to lose their lives were going to do so anyway. It has nothing to do with firearms. When was the last documented time that a firearm jumped up out of a locked box, loaded itself and shot its owner?

I believe it was about the same time that someone looked out onto the White House rose garden and saw the little elves all running around harvesting the money tree.

Enough good people have been murdered, raped and /robbed to demonstrate the complete failure of "gun control" as public safety policy.

Here's a suggestion: Put four (4) large signs on your car-- front , back and both sides:

Gun Free Zone

Drive around a major city for six (6) months. Then let us know how things went for you in your mobile "Helpless Victim Zone".

The criminals in DC have guns. Let's level the playing field.
The good guys should have their 2nd Amendment rights restored.

Congratulations arent necessary for a lobby group, but they are due those in DC who have been victimized by their city in addition to crime. Maybe if you put down the bong you would notice that crime is highest where gun control is strictest & if anything it aids criminal enterprise.

Pretty sad to mourn the potential death of criminals & support the victimization of the law abiding. But to be expected from people that support repression.
