Being a liberal gun owner is a tough spot. You really have to choose one or the other as in most all cases a candidate won't agree with you. Progressive ideals or personal firearms ownership. For Fudds.... If his .22 is semi auto, according to WA's i1639 it IS an assault rifle! Beyond that I hope the fudd crowd catches on that once the semis are gone... Pelosi & Feinstein, etc will come for the rest ... After all, that elk rifle was designed to kill a 700 pound animal at 600 yards.... Why that's practically a sniper rifle. No one needs a sniper rifle, it's just common sense. Seriously though, look at Australia, which many use as example, they don't allow pump shotguns even! Once they gave up their guns, more and more get added to the prohibited list all the time without any say from the people or any means to challenge their decisions. This is where we are headed. And it will most likely happen through the initiative process.
