And Then They Came For Me

For years there has been a rift in the shooting sports. There are those that said "black rifles" have no sporting purpose, there have also been instances of hunters saying it does not matter, I hunt with a bolt action, single shot, etc... They can't equate that with "assault weapons" could they? Maybe they can't, but now they have decided to go after hunting anyway.

"Both petitions came from homeowners groups, one on Sugar Loaf Mountain west of Boulder and the other from Castle Pines Village south of Denver. Representatives from both groups expressed similar distress: Hunting activity is threatening their safety

If the DOW were to ban hunting in the area, said attorney Susan Horner, “It would go a long way in saving us a whole lot of legal fees.” Simple as that: Ban hunting, we won’t sue." [link]

It is time for all gun owners and everyone who enjoys personal responsibility and freedom to start banding together under the same banner and quit squabbling about semantics.

"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately." -- Benjamin Franklin at the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Just as true now as it was then.

What does hunting or "sport" have to do with the 2nd Amendment, anyway?

Nothing, just another example of how gun-grabbers have twisted things to suit their views.
