Never Give an Inch

I was reflecting on Jim Zumbo's remark and how the anti-gun factions jumped all over it. I didn't want to hijack that thread so I've started this one.

I once was naive and believed in being reasonable, but early on I learned why you cannot give an inch to the anti-gun folks. Plain and simple they want to take away our Constitutional right to bear arms. This means every single gun for every single purpose.

The Governor of Maryland (sometime in the 80's) proposed to ban Saturday night specials, cheap disposable handguns because they were the weapon of choice. He promised this was as far as the ban would go.

Sounds reasonable so some people who support the 2nd amendment might go for it. It passed and no sooner did it pass he was out to ban semi-automatic "assault" weapons. Why? The criminals were outgunning the cops.

Whoa, back up. He said the Saturday night special was the weapon of choice for criminals but now he is saying it is assault weapons.

I learned that we must fight every measure to limit gun ownership or ban any kind of gun to protect our 2nd amendment right.

What Jim Zumbo did was open the door to the anti's. As hunters and gun owners we need to stick together and support one another and not take pot shots at one another.

United we stand!

The only ones that will be affected by any type of anti-gun legislation will be the law abiding citizens, not the criminals. Criminals don't care about the laws & will continue to do as they please.

Jim Zumbo played right into the hands of the antis. I'm sure that was not his intention, but unfortunately that's exactly what happened.

We do need to stand together and present a united front!

Not to be argumentative, but when did the anti-gun factions jump all over Jim Zumbo's comment? I mean, I've seen a lot of pro-gun types say that the antis are GOING to jump all over it, and I have no doubt that they will, but so far I haven't actually seen that happen yet.

Did I miss something?

Has anybody heard any comment at all from the NRA about Zumbo? I haven't heard a word.
