(not saying you do want such laws BT)
Shooting range rules and laws are two entirely different things. You can choose whether or not you use the shooting range and follow their rules. I was talking about common courtesy and consideration for others, not laws that try to force someone to do something.

Couldn't the same be said of traffic regulations? A person could choose not to drive and ride a bus instead.

I understood you to be discussing only commonly-expected courtesy, not laws. I just wanted to point out that irritating flaws in other's actions progress from complaints to rules to laws in many instances in human history. Do you remember when people just complained that people should make their kids sit still in their seats while riding in the car? I'm sure there were some families who made "family travel rules" that required the kids to buckle-up or sit still. Now we have seatbelt laws and child safety seat requirements that are enforced as laws. Remember when people complained about some restaurants being overly smokey? Some restaurants made rules against smoking there or in parts of their dining rooms. Now we have laws against smoking in many restaurants. I imagine most of our basic regulations for automotive traffic evolved in a similar fashion (with the exception of some laws driven by the lobbying of special interest groups like MADD).

Let's all agree to complain about moronic legislators more; maybe somebody will make a rule against them and then perhaps a law.

I am with you on that. I wholeheartedly agree that some unnecessary and intrusive laws are being created by some moronic legislators. I am concerned that one of these moronic legislators here will try to do something to restrict target shooting because of all the trash being left on public lands.

I can see where some shooters would get a bit irritated by someone who tries to tell them how to shoot. I recently had to deal with a guy who acted like he owned the range. He started in on me how the rules say you have to wear eye protection. I was wearing my sun glasses around my neck at the time and said, "These will be just fine". He tried to tell me I had to wear regular shooting glasses. I asked if if he was a range official and of course he wasn't. He was walking back and forth watching people shoot and trying to act important. We let him know his concern was not necessary.

Wow! 50 pages of gun owner peeves!

I haven’t read them all. I only went through the first 10 pages so this may have already been mentioned by somebody. I’d say my biggest peeve is gun owners with children who don’t secure their firearms.

Closed minded people who think Black brown are the only colors that should be allowed on gun.

No! I specifically stated, " . . children who DON"T secure their fire arms."

(I'm not even going to get into gun owners who don't secure their children.)

It was a play on words. Maybe better stated as "Gun owners who do not secure their firearms and have children in the house." vs. "Gun owners with children who don't secure their firearms." It was a joke.......a play on words.

Like she said.

Besides, my children have had their own safe in their bedroom for several years. They have been locking up their BB guns and such in it. The law here says you have to keep firearms locked up. It doesn't say that your kids can't know the combination.

When people call guns like the AR or AK an "assault weapon". Or when people ask "is that legal?"

I hate that.
