    I forsee the next thing sought by lizzurds: ban all guns that can accept a scope

    After all, they are all "sniper" guns.

    And then Texas gets serious about seceding and the Midwest joins the cause and we become the United States of America, and the United State(s) of Texas and other lesser states. (Or, believe it or not I saw a T-shirt available on facebook that said, "North Dakota and it's 49 Bitches".) I've said for a long time that NoDak is just a quiet, small, northern version of Texas.

    Even NY and CA haven't gone that far.

    I expect they wont try it, in part, because of the 6% of the population that actively hunts (2011 numbers was the most recent I saw) but may or may not be involved with the gun control argument at this point.

    Telling a guy who feeds his family with deer meat during the winter that you're banning AR's is one thing - tell him you're taking away his 30.06 and there's gonna be a fight.

    Odd, we've got the same shirt in Texas that says something different

    The word is pointe and they are not pointed but boxed for stability while dancing en pointe.

    Incredibly focused fit determined wearers, even the males when they are required to wear toe-shoes, due every respect.

    I was a rock climber at the end of the gear era, and near by when Jim Bridwell invented free climbing. Kletterschue 'rock shoe' design was largely taken from toe-shoes, to the point that my feet still show the effects of cramming size 10 feet into size 9 shoes to make them stiff enough to toe and edge.
