    Interesting article on the origin and agenda of gun control.

    I do not agree with his statements about hiding or taming advertising for black rifles.

    I don't think we have anything to be ashamed of, and the more "mainstream" and "normal" we make these rifles appear- through exposure to the public, rather than hiding them- the safer they will be.

    I personally think the huge boom in AR15 and other black rifle sales we had recently was a tremendous gain to RKBA. I think the more people see them, the less scared of them they will be.

    Not unless we educate them and let them shoot it. Just being popular won't take away the mystique and the crazy rumors that come along with it.

    The agenda has always been and always will be the same. The goal isn't really about controlling guns, it's about controlling people. None of these anti gun laws is about affecting crime or criminals. If that was the idea then they would be targeting criminals and preventing crime. The idea is to remove from "We the People" our means to resist a tyrannical government. Once our most effective means is gone of keeping our "public servants" in line (more like our elitist masters) you can count on more and more of our "guaranteed" rights to start disappearing.

    I agree with what you said, but not for the reason you state.

    Heller specifically talked about one characteristic of weapons which are protected by the 2nd amendment as those which are "in common use".

    The urgent buying spree of the past year has made black rifles, semiauto pistols, high cap mags, etc. far more likely to meet this test than might have been the case had the election gone the other way. Irony eh? Methinks some aspects of gun control are showing themselves to be self-limiting!

    I think it is fear of being a victim of a crime, and lack of exposure to guns from their childhood.

    Schools should institute proper civics classes, and part of that should be to teach basic shotgun, rifle, and pistol safe handling.

    And hopefully that will save a few children's lives who accidently shoot themselves or their friends from a gun they've found unsecured.
