Sad. Anyway, we can defend the right to own destructive devices, but may, in the end, lose the war. The PR war appears to be lost. Remember the Street Sweeper sho gun? It was as banned and we didn’t pay we The our guns. Tommy gun sales, same thing. Those lives lost, and Vegas too, weren’t worth it. I have a modified SKS, and I like it a lot. But in the wrong hands it’s capable of killing 40 people in a big hurry. My Winchester 94 can’t do that. I can tell you that many people I know feel that AR owners care more about their right to own one than the victims. Perceptions mean a lot. I can’t find it now, but a guy we know in his 20s, put up a political cartoon of Uncle Sam lying over the NRA, with bloody bodies around. “It’s okay, you’re safe!” Seeing a regular guy like him putting this up is a good sign. I’d rather see the NRA appear willing to negotiate. Problem is, there are no gun debates withige by as and cherry picking the statistics in their favor. Can all of us be trusted with ARs? Yeah, but what’s available to us is also available to gangs. What’s manufacturer is available, and what’s not manufactured is not.
