Since most gun charges seem to be dropped in plea bargains, why do we need more laws?
The new laws seem to be made by people who know nothing about the shooters and collectors of this land. Millions of rounds are shot a year with no harm to anyone.
We shoot for fun and to increase our knowledge about the firearms we collect, also to improve our skills for matches and hunting. Our quest for the perfect load is endless and uses lots of bullets, primers and powder. Collectors trade among themselves just to get something new, sometimes making several trades in one visit.
Don't pass laws that are made to get broken. Come talk to us, the real shooters, collectors and hunters who will be hurt. Also, no one is thinking of the collectors who one day will have to use their collections for a big part of their retirement. Under proposed laws, they will lose a lot of money or even whole collections.
Again, come talk to the people who will be hurt by the laws. Remember, murder is against the law - but does that ever stop anyone?
