Not a bad write up...
Oregon Live Article
I'm surprised he used my quotes... :thumbup:
For once not a bad article.
The one problem I notice is the repeated use of the term "assault weapon". That is an incorrect description and it is the wrong way to frame the debate.
Totally agree, but even to 'gun guys', the distinction between an "assault weapon" and something like a Colt 6920 that you can buy at Walmart is somewhat subtle. I wish it weren't, and it sure as hell gets my ire when I hear gun guys (i.e., people who should know better), call anything that's semi-auto and has a detachable mag an "assault weapon". Bugs me about as much as the 'clip' vs 'magazine' thing.
BTW, The article talked about Ken Purvis. I've bought a couple good WWII firearms from him. He's a good guy; definitely knows that period well, and appreciates the history... Plus, he usually prices things very fairly.
Hmmmm.... So I can't assault someone with a snubby .38?
There was something weird about this gun show... what happened to all the AKs? Maybe I wasn't paying attention, but after walking the entire show I counted 5-6 AKs total. And Keltecs? The usual compact 380s and 9mms were missing.
Supply and demand? Or are people really hoarding AKs since Obama's AK comment? :laugh:
Except for this:
I added the bold.
Then, there's this:
But they also printed this;
About the most positive statement I've EVER seen the media print about modern auto loading sport rifles. (AKA Assault Rifles)
