Perfect example of the average uninformed gun owner. "They aren't out to take [b]MY[/b] guns!" The same can be said for the shotgun set. They don't know what's going on because the "divide and conquer" tactics of the left have been generally successful. That's also why there are 70+ million gun owners, but onlyy 4 million or so NRA members, and far fewer GOA, JPFO, et. al. members. We are, quite often, our own worst enemies. We have to educate [i]gun owners[/i] more critically than we need to educate [i][u]non[/u][/i]-owners. And flaming them is [size=3][b]NOT[/size=3][/b] educating them.

He is a gun owner, same as Bill Clinton, Albert Gore, Diane Feinstein, Sarah Brady, etc (and yes, they all own, or have purchased guns, recently). Just because he is a gun owner it doenst mean he is a friend to gun owners.

This guy seems to be having problems with what "well-regulated" was supposed to mean as well. And the "assault weapons" ban being common sense told me all I need to know about that guy. And that is that he has none of this "common sense" he talks about. Common sense tells me weapons not used in crime, that are extremely versitile and are in fact the exact weapons we as the militia need the most, are the last weapons they should be trying to ban... The problem with the "70% of Americans support common sense gun laws" thing is that "common sense gun laws" varies in definition quite a bit. Truth be known I support a true instant background for purchases but I'll be damned if even 1% of the "common sense gun laws" are really common sense to me or any other gun owner I know...

Make no mistake about the Reverend Doctor James E. Atwood. He is a fervent pro-gun control activist who likes to pull out his "hunting" credentials to make himself seem like a "reasonable" person. Without going into a lot of detail, here is some of his resume: Interfaith Coordinator for the Million Mom March; and, High ranking activist for the Presbyterian Church – USA, which is a sponsor of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and instructor at the Ghost Ranch, a Presbyterian 'education and retreat center'. Here is a quote from the Virginia newspaper The Journal on the Million Mom March and James E. Atwood (May, 2000): 'James E. Atwood, a retired Presbyterian minister residing in Springfield, has been involved in the gun control movement since parishioner Herb Hunter was killed in a robbery of the Hunter Motel in Springfield. ``I've been in gun control ever since," said Atwood, a 65-year-old father of two and grandfather of four. He calls the march ``the most exciting thing I've ever been involved with." A hunter for more than 40 years, Atwood said Americans need to speak up in opposition to ``extremists of the National Rifle Association."' You can find this quote at: [url=]http://www.jrnl.net/news/00/May/jrn22100500.html[/url] In short, this guy is a duplicitous a-hole, and an anti-gun activist trying to appear as something else. I don't mean to step on anyone's toes here, but many organized churches and civil groups have espoused some form of "social justice" agenda, and by this have been co-opted into a liberal/socialist movement.
