I normally eschew wikipedia as a source of information on anything controversial. However, there doesn't seem to be any unbiased information on the 'Net regarding the American Hunters and Shooters Association.
The NRA and other gun organizations have unkind words for them, but the predominant number of links are the organization praising itself while damning other gun groups.
So, wikipedia it is (at least until someone can find another site, with more certainly unbiased information): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/America...rs_Association
It seems like this group was formed to create political cover for anti-gunners who wanted to dupe the public into thinking that they were pro-gun but favoring "responsible regulation." I doubt it is grassroots.
