    First, the dialectic. Then re-education to get rid of the religion.

    What this has to do with hunters or target shooters is beyond me, but it's the same bs argument that's used against us here.
    All I can say to the perp is Thanks a lot, a$$hole.
    Seriously?

    Do you seriously think that your status as a “sport shooter” has anything to do with firearms legislation here, or anywhere else in the world?

    Governments world wide intend to ensure that you and yours will always be defenceless if you encounter a vicious armed killer as these folk in NZ did.

    Those governments do not see “sport” as a positive.

    Why would they?

    They don’t see the lives of your loved ones as having any value!

    Seriously. The freedom to hunt with an AR is an indicator to me of overall freedom. Just like permitless concealed carry.
    It tells me the govt doesn't care what I do, as long as I refrain from violating the rights of others.

    People accuse me of being a single-issue writer, a single-issue thinker, and a single-issue voter, but it isn't true. What I've chosen, in a world where there's never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician — or political philosophy — is made of, right down to the creamy liquid center.
    Make no mistake: all politicians — even those ostensibly on the side of guns and gun ownership — hate the issue and anyone, like me, who insists on bringing it up. They hate it because it's an X-ray machine. It's a Vulcan mind-meld. It's the ultimate test to which any politician — or political philosophy — can be put.
    If a politician isn't perfectly comfortable with the idea of his average constituent, any man, woman, or responsible child, walking into a hardware store and paying cash — for any rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything — without producing ID or signing one scrap of paper, he isn't your friend no matter what he tells you.
    [I]f a politician won't trust you, why should you trust him? If he's a man — and you're not — what does his lack of trust tell you about his real attitude toward women? If "he" happens to be a woman, what makes her so perverse that she's eager to render her fellow women helpless on the mean and seedy streets her policies helped create? Should you believe her when she says she wants to help you by imposing some infantile group health care program on you at the point of the kind of gun she doesn't want you to have?
    On the other hand — or the other party — should you believe anything politicians say who claim they stand for freedom, but drag their feet and make excuses about repealing limits on your right to own and carry weapons? What does this tell you about their real motives for ignoring voters and ramming through one infantile group trade agreement after another with other countries?
    Makes voting simpler, doesn't it? You don't have to study every issue — health care, international trade — all you have to do is use this X-ray machine, this Vulcan mind-meld, to get beyond their empty words and find out how politicians really feel. About you. And that, of course, is why they hate it.

    Not anymore. Their prime minister has announced the ban on "MSSAs" and "high capacity" magazines, with a buyback program.

    They were never registered down there I don't believe?

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty — and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    6000 Christians killed in the last decade in Nigeria. Guess who's doing the killing?
    Canada gave 110 million dollars in direct aid to Nigeria in 2017.
    I wonder how much of that was siphoned off to buy AK's
    We can lead by example: Stop punishing good people for the actions of a few bad ones.
    And stop enabling rogue operators who are beyond our reach, by keeping the purse strings tighter.
    Especially where 3rd world is concerned.

    Yes, we can lead by example.

    By insisting that government recognize and protect the right of individuals to arms.

    If we prevail, as Floridians did in the eighties, much of the world may follow, as most other states have done since the eighties.

    IIRC standard AR’s are registered, and they have something slightly less ridiculous than California legal AR’s that can be unregistered as long as you don’t insert an un-neutered magazine in it. And the majority of them are of the second description.
