    I know this is a double posting of the same article, but I wanted to paint it in a different light.

    This article sums up EXACTLY what we are fighting.

    No politician, anti-gun Subject or Brady Group member, will ever suggest totally BANNING guns in the USA. They know better.

    They will say "reasonable gun laws" and "I believe in hunting" and "Relax! No one's going to take away your hunting rifle!" and "I support the Second Amendment".

    When they say these things, this is what most of them are really thinking:

    http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070425/OPINION04/704250310/-1/OPINION

    This guy is not a wacko. He was appointed by George Bush Sr. as an ambassador. He is on the editorial board of a major newspaper. He has a distingushed political career. He is a terrifying example of what every unchecked government will become.

    In this guy's world, it's perfectly reasonable that we have the government (you and me) pay for:
    -Processes to enforce $1000 fines for weapons possession
    -Heavily guarded government arsenals
    -Staff to check guns into and out of these arsenals for hunting - with a responsibility to look for the "obviously uinhinged"
    -Hunting license as proof of trust
    -Heavily-guarded museums
    -Gun dealers that cannot keep much inventory, but who will somehow make a living selling guns through individuals to museums
    -"Special squads" of police
    -Lawyers to fight the evil gun lobby
    -Gun-free-area patrols to stop granny and her walker
    -A Coast Guard that can stop every boat, truck, car and airplane
    -And I assume at least a few hundred million new re-education camp guards for those of us who will not comply

    Hey wait a minute! Do all these new arsenal guards, special police, patrols and death camp guards get guns? Who guards THEM? We'll need to double the numbers so they can watch each other! And where does little Adolph sign up?

    What is really amazing to me is that this guy seems to think that the only killing done in his gun-free (yet hunting compliant:) ) utopia will be during the hunting gun check-out.:rolleyes: Unarmed Granny is going to get rolled by non-gun-compliant gangs of thugs before she even makes it out of the house with her walker to be frisked by gangs of gun-free-zone-enforcers.

    Chilling, but not unexpected. At least not by Thomas Jefferson and company.

    This is the reason the Bill of Rights exists.

    A buddy of mine is trying to set up a Coyote hunt so that I can see how the 5.45x39 Bulgarian ammo does!

    My Ak74 is a hunting rifle... I have buddies who hunt with Ak47's!
    (5 round mags... following all laws):rolleyes:

    1. i never understood why killing defenseless animals is more moral than killing someone who wants to kill you or your family.

    2. Aside from wanting to take away my second amendment, i love the blatant 4th amendment violation

    3. why do anti-gun folks always feel the need to explain to us their experience with firearms?

    4. Our guns heavily guarded in a fortress? Ok when society collapses under an out of control government we'll just go ask them if we can have our weapons

    I _hope_ you're not gonna shoot 'yotes with FMJ (or "hollowpoint" - but not expanding) ammo...

    Personally, I prefer Nosler ballistic tips.

    I don't hunt. But I could.

    I guess my biggest worry is that the politicos don't realize that handguns can ALSO be used for hunting. More than once I've gone squirrel hunting with a 6"bbl .22 revolver in a big black basketweave holster for just that. It's hardly concealable (at least for me) and at nearly $1K it hardly rates as a "saturday night special."

    Didn't Zumbo foul up an otherwise good career for slightly similar pontifications.

    As Red from that 70's show would say - "Dumba$$!"

    SS!

    Reading things like that article honestly makes me feel sick. Arent these people aware of the Bill of Rights. They arent privileges. They are RIGHTS!

    I hope to God that our society wont get THAT watered down that we would ever allow something like that to happen

    It is coming, maybe not next year or the year after but it is coming. Too many want to be protected by others.
    The fall of America has started and it is gaining speed.

    No wonder GHW Bush lost reelection

    I once worked as a painter and did some work for a diplomat , he was a cold hearted arrogant jerk.

    This guy probably believes a plan like his could work and is a good thing.

    Jimmy Carter at one time was a semi-intelligent person. Not a good president, but a semi-intelligent person.
    Look what happened to him!
    Just because this guy wasn't a wacko before, doesn't mean he isn't now.
    The only thing he left out of his article was the whole Constitution, you know, the foundation of our government and all. A minor point to some in this day and age, but I suspect that sleeping giant would awaken if that wack-job ever tried to implement his dream.

    I am all for this. As a side benefit, when the special squads do their raids they could also look for evidence that someone is writing things that the government will not allow. Confiscation of the offending material is a given, and we should probably arrest the homeowner as well for having words in his possession that do not have Uncle Sam's seal of approval. Who except licensed journalists really needs Microsoft Word anyway? We can station a Thought Police Officer at each journalist's house to ensure compliance. Eventually we will catch all the terrorist who do not think like the government wants them to.

    Unfortunatly he is what may be a somewhat mainstream diplomate in his thinking.

    The fight for personl rights under any government is one that will always have to be fought. Not just once in awhile, but every day, against any government. The bill of rights was the founders attempt to keep that from happening here. Over the years it has served as a deterent, but not a complete barrier to government control.

    And if that doesn't awake you to the dangers of the type of thinking we face as citizens, then you need to pay more attention to history.

    One thing not addresses:

    Who's going to get the criminals to turn in their guns?

    I can see this happening in my lifetime (Im under 35). Maybe its necessary for something like this to come to pass in order to wake Americans up.?

    Guns for hunting won't be banned.

    OTOH "scoped sniper rifles that can fire rounds accurately up to half a mile away" will be banned. Say bye-bye to the .308, 30-06, etc.

    My response to him would be, "If you want 'em, come and get 'em you S.O.B.".

    There's never going to be a confiscation. It's going to be a grandfathering at worst. We're winning this fight. Let's just keep fighting and there'll be no bans.

    Precisely.

    Those who prepare for defeat, almost invariably achieve it.
