Gator you are right. We as outdoors men view things very diff. the the rest of the population. The problem is the other half of the world and how they view things. Over the years they make it more and more difficult for us to enjoy our freedoms. Most of us just don't want to add fuel to the fire. Assault type weapons draw way too much attention and negativity from those whom which would like to take our freedoms away. These types of guns do not mean enough to me to possibly loose my freedom to hunt. This is a subject that has no end or right or wrong.
