    So can we put a bullet in this thread? Maybe drip a little thread-blood in the water? See what tears into it?

    We can dwell on the past, or we can try to shape the future. I know which is more productive.

    "I must be living in a vacuum. The police in our community tell me that the use of AR and AK rifles have a rapidly growing following among homeowners. I had no clue. Only once in my life have I ever seen anyone using one of these firearms.
    I call them “assault” rifles, which may upset some people. Excuse me, maybe I’m a traditionalist, but I see no place for these weapons among our community. I’ll go so far as to call them “terrorist” rifles. They tell me that some companies are producing assault rifles that are “tackdrivers.”
    Sorry, folks, in my humble opinion, these things have no place in self defense. We don’t need to be lumped into the group of people who terrorize the world with them, which is an obvious concern. I’ve always been comfortable with the statement that homeowners don’t use assault rifles. We’ve always been proud of our “sporting firearms.”
    This really has me concerned. As citizens, we don’t need the image of walking around our neighborhoods carrying one of these weapons. To most of the public, an assault rifle is a terrifying thing. Let’s divorce ourselves from them. I say governments should ban them from the streets and our nation.

    Yeah, I think so. Let's put this one to bed.

    Everyone, go write to your politicians about HR 1022, please.
