    This is just the start of the assault on lawful firearms ownership in America.

    Pretty disingenuous analogy there, Mark, even for you.

    Difference is, the groups wanting to do this have made no effort to hide the fact they want all guns banned. This is just the first step. Live with your head in the sand.....

    Oh and don't worry M Remington, because after they get done taking our firearms, they WILL come after your vehicle. It can be used as a deadly weapon as well. Not just by killing folks in car accidents, but by emitting noxious fumes.
