    So do the RKBA people want to keep automatic and semi-automatic weapons, too? I don't support that at all. Covered too many killings and the aftermaths caused by high-powered machines. Have little respect (really None) for gun-nuts who want these things on the streets.

    Somewhere, the interpretation of the Second Amendment jumped the shark. Time to reign it back in.

      Folks who are members of RKBA run the spectrum - it gets complicated - I'm one.  I hate the NRA,  and the big gun manufacturers, and the fear groups who promote "black people are coming to get you" - arm up' crap.

      I have also worked hard over the years to deal with what is called "inner city gun violence", and gangs.

      OTOH - have had to deal with police violence against us.

      Have supported black rights to self-defense since my SNCC days.

      We live in semi-rural area. most folks here have guns for either hunting or pest/critter control (or both)

      I don't hunt. I will however shoot hawks, turkey buzzards, coyotes, fox and raccoons.
