67. Then don't pretend it's about "saving lives", since rifles are the least misused of all weapons.

If MDA is fighting to legislate rifle stock shape, then it has nothing whatsoever to do with "saving lives", and everything to do with sticking it to lawful gun owners.

You can't simultaneously claim that they aren't out to ban people's guns, and that they want to ban AR-15's and other popular rifles. And you can't claim that their focus is "saving lives" if one of their top legislative priorities is banning guns involved in fewer than 250 murders annually out of 12,000. They're after competitive shooting, recreational shooting, and the enthusiast culture, and that focus proves it.

And why would they stop there? If MDA is after centerfire .22's and slow .30's used in fewer than 200 murders annually, then why should owners of handguns or pump-action shotguns trust them?
