Response to flamin lib (Reply #6)

48. Aha, found it. One of the first (or perhaps THE first) ad campaign MDA ever did...

was a call to ban the most popular civilian rifles in the United States.

They're also on record as supporting a ban on common 11 to 30 round magazines, yes?

Pretty much every proposed "assault weapon" ban that I've seen introduced in the last twenty years has been confiscatory, either immediately or upon the death of the owner. Never mind the fact that rifles account for less than 300 murders annually, or that rifles are underrepresented in suicides, or that altering stock shape or mandating pre-Civil-War magazine capacities won't save any lives whatsoever.

Also, I seem to recall they are pretty aggressive about attacking concealed carry by licensed non-LEO's, even though we have a much lower homicide rate than even LEO's do, never mind the population at large. It seems to me that whatever the opinions expressed at local meetings may be, the priority of the national leadership is to go after lawful gun enthusiasts, not violent criminals or the mentally ill, and many of their legislative proposals reflect that.
