This guy needs to be pounded hard
He's entitled to his opinion.
There are few bolt guns that are as intrinsically accurate as an AR. It's actually, to me, the ideal coyote gun, mine is outfitted with a flattop and a Nikon scope. Great varmint outfit for $600.
I've a friend who spends a lot of time in Montana, claims there are AR's in the back windows where 30-30's used to be.
Remington makes AR's IIRC... but they only sell them to LE.
Hey... Does this mean Zumbo don't like the thought of somebody huntin' with a Garand? Because if it's legal in Alabama with the 8rd en blocs (and my SP handloads), I'm liable to. And I also recall a guy came on American Rifleman TV... he's a Vietnam Vet and was showing off his M1A which he said is both his deer rifle (w/ 5rd mag) AND his Homeland Security rifle (w/ 20rd mags). Does Zumbo have a problem with him too?
Hey, ideally, deer hunting is "one shot, one kill". That's the basis of a humane harvest. Us hunters know that. Would Zumbo now say we're trying to be snipers?
Dumb and Dumber
He has never served his country, or he would never make such a statement. Yes AR's and AK's have a place. I like my russian made AK-47 as much as my 3 ruger 77's. To condemn a really good firearm because of appearance just goes to show us his ignorance. Remark redacted by Matt G
However, if anyone out there is unhappy with my choice of firearm, feel free to send me yours.
He will sit by and idly (or even actively participate) in banning teroristic assault rifles and airplane-piercing 50BMG, crackhead preferred Saturday Night Specials, gangbanger handguns, intimidating pump shotguns, and cowboy lever actions.
By the time they come for his precision bolt action high powered sniper rifle that can kill from 600 yards away and drop a 1000lb animal, there will be no one left to defend him because he already threw everyone else under the bus.
Its worse that it isn't just some chucklehead on a random blog. He is a writer for a large magazine with a wide audience. However judging by the commentary left, I would say 9/10 people are extremely pissed off.
The mixed blessing surrounding the 1st Amendment is that sometimes you have to sit through headaches like this Zumbo guy.
And he can kiss goodbye his "high power" rifles and "sniper scopes" he uses to deer hunt and the "high-capacity shotguns" that he uses on birds if applying an artificial and scary label like "assault rifle" is all it takes to dismiss a a gun as not worthy of ownership by hunters.
I'm confused. Isn't "not agreeing with him" or saying that "his opinion is as worthwhile as monkeys flinging dung at each other", not free speech also?
Why does free speech suddenly stop BEFORE the point of a better argument?
But no point to doing a bunch of name-callling here at THR.
