Granted Paul Smith is no Jay Reed but he writes for a paper that used to support sportsmen, I say used to because I am old enough to remember the real sports show that has turned into the seven mile fair. If to don't think the anti-gun groups are after all guns you have obviously partaken of the cool aid , just look at the confiscations that have taken place around the world, it starts out just like smoking in public did. Once the camel gets its nose in the tent the rest follows, just register your guns then we make one style illegal then one more then one more and so on, Just look at who wants to change the constitution all the time. The tax you to death to support their voter base with free stuff crowd, remember the lie they always tell us its government funded except its really taxpayer funded they forget about who really pays the bills in this country. To blame one party more than the other for what we see as injustices is just tribalism, just look at what is happening in Washington, its like two kids fighting over a toy.
