Although that's a great idea, I am not sure it helps us fight the current battle.

The "less than 16 inch" barrel would be a recovery effort.

Our current battle focuses primarily on semi-auto, magazine fed.
And since these features are inherent in the Modern Sporting Rifle, I think we need to get this word out. Perhaps we can wordsmith something along the lines of the following blurb.

THIS IS ONLY SAMPLE / EXAMPLE, NO FACT CHECKING HAS BEEN DONE


The Modern Sporting Rifle has been developed to reflect changing technologies and manufacturing.

The MSR typically is milled by CNC machines to facilitate manufacturing.
Modern Materials are utilized that reduce the dependence of hardwoods.
The semi automatic reflects modernization we see in every area of our lives.
The MSR is the largest selling catagory of rifles in the world today.
Although some MSR share cosmetics similar to Military weapons, these civilian rifles are not fully automatic. The similarities only allow manufactures to reduce cost both to the miliary and civilians.

The safety features or benefits of the MSR are:
  • Removeable Magazine allows user to safely remove ammuniton from the MSR.
  • Cycling the action, ejects loaded round similarly on all MSR's
  • Semi-Automatic MSR's mimimize potentially unsafe manipulations
  • Large Surface area allows MSR controls to be clearly labeled.
  • Pistol Grip features and forearms are enhanced to ensure safe handling.
  • Threaded Barrels allow for sound suppression to alleviate noise pollution.

I like it! Make the MSR into the new safe and ecologically friendly sporting rifle (do not call it a weapon).

Then, . ... (given a spokesman), we explain the numbers of MSR's that have been sold in the United States since the Clinton AWB, Show the number of guns, deaths, and relate them to other items around us in life.

Guns, Bathtubs and Cars have statistics for death and injury.
Law abiding citizens will be asked to forfeit millions of dollars.
Jobs Lost, Taxes Lost, all to feed a non-problem ..

Unless that Spokesman is brave enough to reveal the anti-gun agenda.
And I think we can find a spokesman.

Join and Support the NRA and it's lobbying efforts. They will find the right politician. The left needs to be demonized as chicken littles for a non-problem and anti-patriotic, enemies of the state that they are.

So. that's what next.

Also in your talk with other people, you may hear something along the lines of.
But the second amendment was about muskets.

Remind them that their Freedom of speech should be limited to feather pen's and parchment. (No Internet, Cell Phones, or Facebook)
Why do you need these for hunting?
Remind them that this is a second amendment issue and has nothing to do with Hunting.
But I have found the best thing to do is take these people shooting!
I usually get converts with a bit more understanding about the problem.

Anyone who says that the second amendment was written in a time where people had muskets, and not machine guns and semi-automatic rifles, is a moron, they are to stupid to realize that the people at that time had guns that would be seen as the belt fed machine gun of that time, and as far as hunting goes, technically your dear rifle is not protected by the 2nd Amendment because it is not military hardware.

Libtards crack me up when they use the term assault rifle. They don't even know they're using a term popularized, or maybe even invented, by Hitler. Nein spreckenzie duestch, but the MP44, Sturmgeveir (definately not spelled right) roughly translates to assault rifle, right?.. Which was coined by good old Adolf. Maybe that's how we can get'm to stop using that rediculous term.
