Another Reason Why Gun Bans Don't Work

Here we go...maybe we need to ban bows, or impose a length limit on arrows. Yellow feathers? Oooh, those are the worst.

Another Reason Why Gun Bans Don't Work

I love this quote attributed to the police.

Quote:
Police say the fiberglass arrow with yellow feathers is the type used for practice or hunting.

The arrow either has a field point used for practice or a broadhead used for hunting. There is no such tip used for both practice and hunting.

I would be willing to ban guns when the government can absolutely assure me that criminals, terrorist and other evil people can under no circumstance have or obtain a gun.

Guess that will never happen so I'll keep my guns, thank you very much.

Yes, we all know that fiberglass arrows with yellow feathers are far more deadly than green ones with orange feathers.

Can you imagine if it had been a carbon arrow with a broadhead? I can only imagine how they'd carry on about a sinister loner attaching razor blades to the arrow in order to maximize the carnage. Then they'd no doubt get hold of the bow and start going into a discussion of how carefully-tuned pulleys are used to magnify the force far beyond that of a "normal" bow, or how he'd attached silencers to the string.

The press can spin anything in a bad way, and people who are willing to throw black rifles under the bus haven't thought about how the press would spin a shooting with a scoped bolt-action. In the hands of a zealot with a word processor, that Model 70 becomes a high power sniper rifle using "dum-dum" exploding/expanding bullets that can kill at several hundred yards and which are way more powerful than what's needed to kill a deer.

It's the same thing with the law and the government. They always mistakenly categorize thing as something they actually are not. They categorize smokeless powders as an explosive when it's actually a flamable propellent. They categorize any carbonated malt beverage that is above 6.0% alcohol as an Ale regardless of the brewing method. Teflon coated bullets as armor piercing, etc. How can the government or the law decide what is best for the people when they contantly mistakenly and wrongly categorize certain products?

Also for as much time and coverage as the media has these days, why can't they ever report anything right? They always leave people with a severely false impression of how things really are. Now the general public has the impression that only the yellow ones are dangerous Laugh Yeah, every small airplane is a Cessna too Laugh
