Nice rifle and very good shooting there!
Agreed - TOOLS are never to be blamed for their misuse.
People get killed by cars and trucks everyday but I don't see the MSM asking for them to be banned. There is a reason for that - it makes no sense. Same applies to firearms. They are a useful tool...which can be misused. We don't toss out the 1st Amendment because some idiot yells "Fire!" in a crowded theater. (We do, however, lock that idiot up for creating a panic that caused harmed and/or death.)

Welcome to the forum! Looks like you have fun.

Speaking of Tommy Guns do you recall watching the scene in the movie "Mask" that involved a Tommy Gun?

Thank you much. Not really a "long range shooter" but I find these posts informative.

Welcome to the Forum, you'll find lots of great folks and good information on here. And.....yes MSM does have a bias against firearms, as in the newspapers, magazines, national news, the entertainment industry, even our health care facilities to name but a few. I will add that I "might" put a photo of a rifle that I just built on a public forum (or anywhere); however, never a photo of my entire collection of firearms. I am a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment, equally as well as every other amendment of our constitution. I believe that we "do" have a people problem, and I am not writing about the people who choose firearms to commit crimes of violence. I am talking about power hungry politicians who will say and do whatever is necessary to raise votes and be in power; power equals greed!!!! If you don't believe me, take a look at what is happening with our immigration laws; although illegal there are lots of votes coming into this great country of ours on a daily basis. If politicians can disarm this great country of ours, that only insures their power base; sort of like what Hitler did during his tenure. If greedy, power hungry politicians can water down or dissolve the 2nd Amendment what is to stop them from getting rid of the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th Amendment equally as well. At this point democracy in this country will no longer exist! And......usually I do not go off on a political tirade like this, think I drank too much coffee this morning. Welcome to the forum.

I agree wholeheartedly in reference to power hungry politicians and the sorry state of our lack of immigration enforcement. Good call and thanks!
