    Have you contacted your Senators to oppose HR 8 and HR 1446
    yet?

    Oh, ya. But the Senators from Michigan are both hard lefties. One rode Biden's scam to reelection this last year.

    So I have no hope that they will listen to their constituents.

    You might remind them that there are a lot of people in Michigan that like to hunt.

    The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting. The are gun enthusiasts known as Fudds that believe only a narrow selection of
    hunting
    rifles should e xist because that is what they specifically use. Some
    Fudds
    are as worse as anti-gunners because they are too narrow minded to see
    the
    self defense and other shooting sports and disciplines as on being any value.

    I have firearms of all sorts, from single shot .22 rifles up to the evil, scary "modern sporting rifle." Of all of them I have yet to find a
    favorite to shoot. Depends on the type of shooting I feel like doing that day.

    The point is... there are a wide variety of shooting types, sports, activities and disciplines. I enjoy most, if not all of them. It's my RIGHT to be able to do so, and nobody has the RIGHT to restrict my ability to enjoy them. As far as I'm concerned, every single firearms restriction on the law books is unconstitutional. If you want to punish gun crimes, make sentences more severe for the commission of a crime while using a gun. If you want to limit a population's ability to protect itself, then you
    make gun ownership more difficult...

    The other day I heard there were over 20,000 gun laws at the state level. Instead fo creating new laws, I would advise they look at the exsiting laws that are not working towards making people safe rather than create new laws that hurt legal gun owners. The Second exists as part of our given right to defend ourselves, and that's where it hurts me to hear folks who only believe it was there because the founding fathers liked shooting squirrels or
    punching holes in targets.

    This is why the number of laws is always increasing and never decreasing.

    I suspect it is also an attempt at artificially inflating the economy. If you have too many people on unemployment you may create a lot of laws that generate the need for extra accounting in firms and families, so they need to hire more accountants and lawyers.

    I attribute more laws are due to poor research. I helped out with a hunter's education course a few years back, and mentioned to the conservation officer some laws counter acted other laws. How do they expect an 11 y/o kid to apply proper judgment when 2 laws conflict with each other? the officers are well aware of it, and tell students to be able to explain why they made the
    decision they made. That is where teaching the concepts of ethics comes in. The ethical approach tends to side with the "spirit", or what was meant by
    the law makers.

    Getting old laws fixed also takes time and money. Unless you're rich or can muster up enough momentum to gather larger number s of signatures on a petition, you'll sound like every other schmo on a soap box.

    To be clear, I don't jump on the hunting crowd. The few I do debate with are those who do not believe there's any other reason why someone should own firearms. I remind them the last time the US considered strict legislation toward everything except a few simple hunting rifles and shotguns, they were following the success the Germans were having in the 1930's. When
    registration become confiscation, a single shot goose gun is just as menacing to the eyes of an oppressor.

    All of that is true. IIRC, the Brits cannot own much that isn't considered
    a hunting arm. When I hear someone who is not 2A going on about how we shouldn't have guns that carry X or more bullets, I think of the Brits and believe I would rather have what we have than that.

    In the grand scheme of things the difference between a hunting rifle and an assault rifle is the not in the firearm itself, but the intentions of the person aiming and pulling the trigger.

    I don't know what it would take to eliminate the roots of violent behavior, however I feel eventually we can teach others that blaming knives, sticks or other items for the acts committed by the person using them is ridiculous. Some of the most effective martial arts based on unarmed fighting originated because knives and other items were banned.

    There is a film in which some authoritarian regime tries to elimitate violent behavior with drugs
    and mind control techniques. Most of the population dies and the rest turns into violent psycopaths
    who start killing everybody.

    My experience is that you never convince people. The way to push change in the eyes of the public
    is to bring people into minoritary hobbies (such as target shooting or knife collection) until
    there is enough people in it, with stakes in it, that it becomes resistent to political tampering.

    Any change in culture that is effective takes time and is done subtly. Just as many other nations have been whittling away at their citizen's rights to
    own firearms, they've been doing it in such a way that people who do legally own and use firearms are viewed as being deviants.

    The US has a gun culture, and instead of trying to hide it, safety and responsibility through safety courses and shooting sports are ways to reverse the stigma that guns only have one evil reason to exist.

    Complete agreement is not necessary. There is a general theme of respect, kindness, and responsibility.

    Put God above all, and treat your neighbor as yourself. The rest is
    just details. :-)

    Sounds like a good start.

    But why do those have to be inspired by religion? Respect, Kindness and responsibility are all admirable traits. I don't need a fairy tale to back them up.

    Don't have to be inspired by religion at all! You'd think being kind
    and respectful to your fellow man would come natural, but the Truth
    is that the NATURAL thing to do is Sin...

    Calling the Bible a "fairy tale" is an awfully large assumption.
