Wake-up call to hunters!


It’s increasingly disgusting to hear people like Jim Boeheim push for “gun control” because of another mass shooting. What these people can’t understand is that the “psychos” in our country don’t need a gun. They will find a way.

Did Tim McVeigh need a gun? Has anyone noticed what gun control has done for us in places like New York City and Chicago? The only concealed weapons in these cities you will find are carried by criminals and police.

When you ban assault rifles, all you have to do is redefine an assault weapon to restrict law-abiding citizens even more. In New York state there are over 700,000 licensed hunters that may someday find that their 5-shot, semi-automatic shotgun is now an assault weapon. When our politicians talk about banning assault weapons and high capacity clips, they are searching for a reason to take the blame away from the criminal maggot that actually decides to pull the trigger. Wake up, hunters! Take this issue as voters to your political reps or we will lose our Second Amendment rights.
