Politicians and hunters...

Seems like a lot of us are posting the responses we got from our Senators during the S1805 battle.

I see almost all have the obligatory "I support the 2A" in them, and the ones from Senators that are from gun-neutral or pro-gun states but are FOR the AWB usually have the "I'm a gun owner and don't want to take your hunting rifle but..." language in them too.

(Not to drift too far off topic, but even Senators from some gun-unfriendly states play this game too - witness John Kerry and his pheasant hunting. Then again, he is running for a national office. By contrast, my Senator Sarbanes (MD-D) didn't even bother with the "hunting" or the "I support the 2A but..." caveat).

Anyway, my point is: just how afraid ARE the gun grabbing politicians of waking up the hunters and trap shooters to their real agenda (i.e. either banning all firearms or imposing UK/Australian type "leave 'em at the Gun Club or locked up separately from the also locked up ammo; subject to inspection" laws)?

Seems to mean theres a political reason for this "hunting, hunting, hunting" blather.

IF (and Teddy K. railing about banning 30-30 ammo can't hurt) we get the majority of the once a year deer hunter and the (only own a shotgun for) skeet shooters on our side, we can't lose.*

And I bet that's what they are afraid of.

* no offense to hunters or trap shooters. What I am referring to is the "let them ban those EBRs and handguns, I just hunt/shoot skeet."gun owners. One day they will realize that when Feinstein says "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in", she MEANS "all of 'em".

Leftist extremist politicians think hunters are too stupid to know the difference. I have a hunch they're going to find out otherwise in November.
