There is a “run on guns” currently underway due to citizens fearing that anti-gun politicians will soon have enough power to pass every anti-gun law imaginable. Inadvertently, the pending administration has given a needed boost to the economy by sparking the sales of guns, ammo, and high capacity magazines.
Obviously, I am one of many against our government passing laws that will make criminals out of law-abiding citizens
The gun laws having the most common sense would read:
A) Law-abiding people may purchase and possess any gun they choose.
B) Criminals cannot purchase or possess guns.
C) Go to A.
According to the definitions that I have read in some drafts of “common sense gun laws,” my .54-caliber Hawken muzzle-loading rifle would be banned, as would shotguns using slugs. Often the people preaching “common sense” possess absolutely none.
If you are a shooter and you have never fired black powder firearms, I recommend that you try it. It is fun, loud, somewhat dirty, and very educational. Black powder has roots going back long before the beginnings of our great nation. Once all of the “common sense” gun and ammo laws have passed, small-bore black powder firearms may be all we will have left for hunting and home defense. Then again, our elected officials may find it to be “common sense” to ban them too. Your vote counts.
