    I feel the group serves an extremely useful purpose in espousing responsible gun ownership. I would very much like to help further its cause.

        I am an outspoken proponent of reasonable gun regulation here in what is generally a conservative (but reasonable) state. I expect to get excoriated for my views, but even among the most ardent gun supporters, I am met with rational debate and respect.

        Here's hoping to meet similar debate on these pages, but I expect to meet some who attack me. Par for the course on a blog, I suppose.

        •  reasonable is the issue....I have seen many so (6+ / 0-)

          called reasonable ideas here that were anything but for anyone who has any actual knowledge of firearms and how they operate.

          I have seen calls to ban everything but flintlock muskets called reasonable here.......

          I do not agree...

          No one I know objects to making sure all relevant information is in the NICS system.  That is reasonable, no one would object to violent criminals being prohibited whether or not they were felonies, but at the same time, to use the plain felony as the line makes many people who are not violent in any way prohibited plus impacts POC in a very obvious way.  calling for a ban on everything semi automatic is not reasonable yet again it is repeated regularly....

          It isnt wingnuts stripping the supply line and that is what is happening, it is ordinary Americans who want the most popular rifle in America before someone attempts to ban them.    This time I was smart and have plenty of supplies to last until the panic ends.....I just hope it isnt ended by republican clean sweeps in 14 and 16 which is a very possible outcome of the insanity I hear from my side of the aisle...... I do credit the President with more common sense than that and do not think he will allow any of the ridiculously over the top ideas to be in the actual final legislation if any legislation happens at all....

          I can see Obamacare being repealed and everything we have worked for destroyed by a minority of fearful people who dont seem to get there is no freedom from fear guaranteed by the Constitution......
