I am in the mood to get beat up today! so here goes!!
Lets Talk about Image.
I have attended MANY MANY gun shows in the past... I think they have really changed in the past decade or so. many More boothes of "Black Guns" Tatical equiptment, Clothes, Body armour, ect.
Ammo belts that hold large amounts of ammo.. Night taticle scopes, Night range finders..
Desgin guns that really arnt Assult weapons,, Just look like them,,, or,, deliberataly take a normal looking weapon,, and turn it ito someting that LOOKS LIKE, to the uneducated,, something evil,, and to be feared
Whats that Image portray to the gerneral populace? Do you think it breeds fear? Do you think it portrays gun owners as "Kooks"
Do you think the media doesnt salivate over the opportunity to dispaly this??
If we take the attitude,, "Its our right,, and there is nothing you can do about it"
Do you think that attitude will breed fear,,, and the general populace that doesnt understand guns,,,, the second ammendment,, and has slowly become somewhat the majority,, will vote our rights away beacuse of "In your Face" actions.
So so everyone understands where I stand... I am very Pro gun!!
I think we have made a HUGE mistake in displaying a percieved image...
I dont think deliberatly designing guns to LOOK like assult type weapons,,,, or purchasing clothes ,much like a golf ensamble, to make your self look like a weekend swat team member, does our gun rights group much good!!!
I believe we need an Image of "nothing to fear",, and infact,, maybe a preventative against evil..
Go ahead,,, beat me up!!!
