34. I think you misunderstood. Allow me to explain.

 

Anyone who delays, and obfuscates, and publicly obstructs the sensible implementation of more gun control in the US, has bloody hands. My having hunting guns from a distant past does not make my hands bloody. I would give them up if the law said to, straight away without a fuss.

I don't even advocate for an end to hunting, or sporting, or self defense. Some weapons have got to go and all guns should be harder to get a hold of. But that is not what this is about. As I said before. when I was a hunter, or a trap shooter, things were different. None of us had weapons like ARs. Didn't want them. they weren't even really in our mindset as to something that we needed. We didn't need them. A deer rifle was bolt action, or pump. Rarely semi-auto, they jammed. That was all back when I was a kid or a young man, No longer, not even sporting activities.

It is today's attitudes that I push back against. All the "right to keep and bear arms" balderdash, it doesn't just say that. Those that defend the right to have an AR or an AK with a banana have blood on their hands and there is more to come. If I were advocating against the restriction of the one common denominator of all these shootings, the semi-auto rifle or pistol with high capacity mag, then my hands would be bloody as hell. They are not.

Apples and oranges.
