It is because the stock is attached to a gun.

Yup
Every few years someone takes a few long range shots like the DC Sniper. If one of those starts up again, the deer rifles are next.

During the first AWB ban pistol grip guns were banned. The Manufacturers turned their pistol grips into thumbholes to get around it. That's why they are after thumbholes now.

The guy in DC wasn't a sniper, wasn't taking long shots, he was, a mechanic in the army at one time, the only thing he did that that resembled the craft was being in the trunk of a car! He is a POS!

I absolutely agree that the anti-gunners will continue to come after us, especially if they have any success with the current bill Feinstein is introducing.

I don't agree that 1/2 of our country is for more gun control. I do believe that they believe what they are told by our anti-gun politicians, media & "celebrities" that that less guns = less violent crime. Statistics show the exact opposite. But as Sarah Brady has said, "An ounce of emotion is worth a pound of facts". Right now emotions are running high, and the anti's are trying to use this to their advantage.

I'd love to see the pro-gun groups really go on the offensive. You can't argue with the facts. I'd love to see a media campaign promoting the positive aspects of gun ownership and the shooting sports.

And I highly encourage each one of us to introduce a non-gun, non-shooting friend to the sport! There is strength in numbers

As I read the Feinstein proposal I was pretty sure it was addressing semi autos. I could be wrong................

I make custom pistol grip stocks for bolt actions and the Rem7400-7600. Definitely can't afford her BS logic.
