Is this a thread about “bans” on airguns? Or, that more regulation is coming? Or just sheer conjecture? Last post on this thread, there are many, many other “firearms” the gun grabbers would have to “snatch” up first. Seems like some here like being alarmed.

These days, you cannot bury your head in the sand. Call it what you want, but politicians take your freedoms in a heartbeat if you don't keep them in-check. These are not conjectures. This is historical fact.

And the argument "There are many, many other firearms the gun grabbers would have to snatch up first." … Is that a solid defense?  No. That's like saying "take our nukes, but please leave us some cannons." If the powers-that-be take the firearms, they already are de-nutting you. We might like air rifles but protecting the 2A doesn't mean shit if the enemy takes everything away and leaves everyone with just PCP's. If that happens, forget airguns, because we already lost at that point.

Exercise your rights and be active. Period.

Just protect the Second Amendment as you see fit. No one is burying their heads anywhere. The intent of this thread was to stir the pot.

 

@pthere, you wrote the above don’t put words in my mouth. I defend my Constitution rights. I just don’t go around like “chicken little” saying the “sky is falling”. Lots of you like to point at the “big bore” air guns as the problem. They are not, “gun grabbers” are. The intent of the OP was, and he’s been successful, to create divisions within our air gun shooting community. Me personally I don’t care what you shoot as long as you do it legally and responsibly.
