Only a couple members own an AR 15. We have quite a few members who own AR 10s. I have never heard anyone say I don't care if a gun law is passed it won't affect me. Unless you live in a cave you know that any gun law is potential threat to legal gun ownership. Right now they are all mad with the NRA for not opposing the "invisible gun law." They see it as a law that can be easily abused. We are still trying to figure out how to build an invisible gun. Xray machines in airports can see plastic objects. A piece of plastic with no ammo is just a piece of plastic. Ammo is certainly visible to any Xray machines.
Most active gun owners that belong to any civic group, shooting or hunting club are aware of gun laws. They are just not as organized if they don't belong to a gun rights group.
sorry to burst your bubble. but there are many gun owners that believe in guns for sporting purposes only. that the police are there to ensure your safety and well being, and to protect you from the goblins.
there are gun owners who do believe in gun restrictions. that LAC's shouldn't or don't need semi-auto firearms. or fully automatic fiearms or suppressors and such. that we should have magazine restrictions. and only the police and military need such things, not the citizens.
these people may claim to support or believe in the 2nd amendment, but IMO, no they don't. because they fail to understand the simple phrase, "Shall Not Be Infringed" and can't comprehend simple English.
there are over 5 million members of the NRA or there abouts. how many gun owners are there in the USA? so tell me how many of those that don't belong to the NRA, what are their viewpoints and stances on gun control laws and restrictions? the answers may suprise you.
