That is a ludicrous statement. Given that their web site does not contain this data, asking for their position is absolutely relevant and appropriate. "When did you stop beating your wife"? is a question for which there is no correct answer, and that is designed to entrap the answerer. I am posing no such question. I am asking if the AHSA supports any restrictions on the manufacture, sale, or use of semiautomatic 'hunting' rifles other than those restrictions that currently exist. I do not know how much more linear or fair a question can get. I am not. I am relying upon your original post, and asking a good faith question to continue one of the topics in that post. Are you not willing to defend and/or elaborate upon your own statements? The logic extrapolation of your conversation with Ray is the question of whether the AHSA supports any Federal or state restrictions on the manufacture or sale or ownership of semiautomatic 'hunting' rifles other than those restrictions that currently exist. Since he lumped AR15 restrictions into the same camp as other semiautomatic hunting rifles, it stands to reason that we should ask AHSA their position WRT that broader class of rifles.
