Ever noticed they call competition/target shooting "target practice" (implying you are practicing to use your gun for shooting in a "real" (read: killing) scenario. I have. My theory is that they cannot separate guns from killing in their minds. That is why they think all guns but "hunting" guns should be banned... they think guns are only used for killing and if you aren't killing animals then you must killing people . This is why it is never "competition" or "marksmanship" or "plinking" when they talk about recreational shooting... its "target practice"... because those bowling pins must be stand ins for humans/animals you are going to slaughter... I, for one, and most of us I'd imagine, can clearly separate guns from killing. My 12 pound .223 is a target rifle, I don't hunt and it is certainly not a defensive arm, it's not meant to kill anything, and certainly not people, though it could. I guess you could say I do have "killing" guns... I have firearms customized for the utmost utility in defensive scenarios, but I know the difference and I know when I take one of my tactical rifles out and shoot targets down by the river bank I am not "practicing" to kill things, I am having fun... I am plinking. I can tell the difference, why can't the antigunners?
