    I agree. I assume the WCI board will notify the attorneys if need be.

    i'm glad to see he got the charges dismissed. it didn't appear to me he met the definition of knowingly entering a school zone. Kudos to the cops, and their tape measures.

    They went through too much effort to try to find this guy guilty of possession in a school zone. I'm glad he got off of the charge. Too bad he had to sit in jail for a while.

    People who write about guns in the paper need to take the time to learn about guns. Calling something an assault style rifle is nothing more than baiting the anti's. Most of these people don't know the difference between a semi and full auto.

    IMO It's not an "assault style" if you can't hold the trigger down and have it keep firing. Otherwise it's simply a semi automatic sporting rifle.

    Maybe we could coin a new name or phrase. Perhaps we could call them multipurpose sporting rifles, or maybe tactically friendly weather resistant firearms. Easy to maintain, versatile and dependable security devices.

    We totally understand that and I wasn't super serious about the new names, but on second thought, many of the sheeple are calmed by nice sounding terms. Think about some of the past political movements and how coining new terms kinda glazed it over for people who really didn't want to think about it. These rifles and handguns are part of our safety plan, think about how many controversial things pass at public schools in the name of safety.

    Many of the companies would no longer object to firearm carry because it would be part of the safety plan, so they could then tell concerned customers that they allow citizens to carry in the store for the safety and comfort of everyones shopping experience. Problem solved, politically correct, no discrimination.

    Not to get off topic but I've had several people tell me that "no one needs an automatic weapon to hunt" I always respond that tend to agree, but some of us like to use a semi automatic rifle for hunting or target shooting. The fact that some of them look at me with a puzzled face as if to say "what do you mean" tells me that the biggest problem with anti's is the lack of education on firearms, and that the media and the anti's before them have done nothing to help the problem. Rifles are rifles and they take standard capacity mags.

    I really hate the way media portrays guns and gun owners as if were some kind of barbaric culture who needs to be studied to understand what makes us tick.

    Revel in the awesomeness of the "Hello Kitty AR-15"

    All in all aside, to me, a rifle is a rifle. Semi or auto makes no difference. I've watched some shooting competitions that are strictly semi only and you would have never know the pistols and rifles, especially the bolt action rifles, were in fact semi.

    The current world record revolver shooter, Jerry Miculek, shot 12 rounds in 2.99 seconds. That time includes the time it took him to reload. That may not be up there with the current rpm for today's auto rifles but its still crazy fast for a revolver. Here is the video via youtube.

    Hmmm... didn't know you considered a "bolt-action" to be "semi." I, and probably the rest of the gun shooting world consider it manual or "non-auto," not semi-auto. But nit-picking aside...

    Having shot a lot of full-auto back in my military days, back when the M-16 was truly full-auto and not some 3-round burst POS, I can say that full-auto is rarely any big advantage for anyone who can shoot well. Makes sense as a squad weapon, but as an individual weapon, not so much. Waste of ammo mainly.

    Make every shot count!

    Trivia question: Quick! Who can give me the name of a semi-auto revolver?

    That's not what I meant to imply. Bolt actions are bolt actions, but the rate of fire that some of these pro shooters achieve with bolt action rifles make then seem like semi-autos.

    I don't know of any semi-auto revolvers, but the only full-auto revolver I can think of might be the Mini gattling gun. Sure, some would debate that it's not a "true" revolver seeing as how the chamber isn't revolving but the barrel is.

    Edited for spelling and grammar. Hooray diploma!
