One of my coworkers is a big-bore handgun & skeet enthusiast, but has absolutely no interest in tactical firearms or C&R or imported guns. Constantly chuckling about how black rifles and military calibers are sure to be banned under Obama he gets quite upset when my response is along the lines of: "I'd suggest you stick up for the entire shooting community and not just the parts you enjoy. If they ban my black rifles, I'll make sure they ban your hand-cannons and street-sweepers. I'll devote hours every day to helping the Brady Campaign write legislation to ban all of your toys and you know I wont ban just the cosmetic features."

Am I being an asshole?

Not the ideal situation, but the guy sounds like a huge tool anyway.

Fuck him, carry on.

While it is a severe response, maybe it would get him to think of the possibility that his weapons also might be on the chopping block one day.

I have used the same tactic on benchrest shooters. At the private range I go to, I have had to listen to the "What do you need that thing for, thats just made for killing people?" comments. My response is always, "What makes you think they are not going to go after your high powered sniper rifle that can pick people off at 400yds plus after they get my weapons?"

You should see the look on their faces when the possibility of their rifles being taken away sets in.

Using it as a response in an argument is perfectly okay. Actually doing it would be stupid.

No shit asshole, as is every other gun out there. Regardless of what they're DESIGNED to do, it's what people ACTUALLY do with them that makes a difference. They're made to kill people, animals, old junk cars, etc. OK, so the fuck what? If used in DEFENSE, it's a very useful tool. STFU and carry on, dumbasses.

i'd say its wrong to lie...unless you really will do that.
but if it makes the guy realize that we all stand together on this issue then...why not?

i'd EXPECT an EBR ban in the next 20 years MONTHS the way things are going. the public will need access to whatever arms they can get. as much as it will gripe me i would still work FOR the fudd community keeping their high power sniper rifles.

You make a valid point.... He needs to get his ideology in order!
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 5:23:55 AM EDT
better idea is show him two rifle pics and ask him what the difference is. tell him the dipshits in d.c. see both rifles as sniper guns and think we shouldn't have em





other than the evil looking stock, it's still a remington 700. a rifle thats been built for 60yrs

Agreed. It's like threatening to vote for Hillary because McCain is too liberal.
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 5:29:42 AM EDT
Ask him why he needs the guns he has when a muzzle loader would work just fine. Also find out if he has any military caliber hunting rifles in 30-06

Then punch him in the head.
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 5:29:54 AM EDT


Well it's exactly the "game plan" that the Dems have. They will pander to the hunting crowd for example and fawn all over them, telling them that they are the "responsible" ones and they are only going after the "loonies with the assault weapons".

Then they'll deal with the hunting/collector crowd later after they have dealt with us "loonies"

Divide and conquer. Worked for thousands of years.
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 6:27:42 AM EDT
Nope - good for the goose and all that. Maybe he will re-think his position.
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 6:30:23 AM EDT
Ask him what makes him think they will stop at an AWB?

Remind him of the NFA, 1968 & 1986

Ask him if he understands the meaning of the word incrementalism.

If the Fudd community were actually instrumental in passing some form of AWB, then yes: I'd see to it that all Fudd firearms, such as their high-powered sniper rifles, are banned, as well.

Cutting off my nose? Sure..but I'm strangely comfortable with it.

I'm already in my early thrities, for Christ's sake. Let's get this party started.

"You might think your scoped, bolt-action hunting rifles are safe, but wait until the media starts calling them something else –– sniper rifles. When that happens, and you come groveling to us for our pity and sympathy, you'll find it delivered to your face with the now broken stock of your menacing, evil tool of assassination."

Today's deer rifle is tomorrow's "high-powered SNIPER WEAPON".

Youre co-worker is a fucking FUDD.

Another reason why I don't discuss firearms at work. EVER.

Nope, I have that same opinion as well. Why do I need an AR? Why do you need to go hunting?
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 6:54:43 AM EDT
My stance is now this.... If any further firearms restrictions go through, I'm voting for the most restricting, big government liberal I can in every election. If a politician wants to ban sports cars and SUVs, they will get my vote.
The 2A is in the Constitution.... nothing about automobiles in there. More people die from vehicles anyway. It's for the kids.

if you read the text of the Assault weapons ban reauthorization act of 2008 , they will ban almost every type of firearm made..it's a LONG list of guns that will be on the chopping block.

BUT, if they ban the Peoples guns, then Then I am all for the cops and feds getting their guns banned too.

Tell your co-work with out a doubt after "assault weapons" are gone his deadly baby killing weapons are next.


Edit: also ask him in what part of the 2nd does it say skeet or target?
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 7:43:16 AM EDT
Better idea... Put that same effort in to ensuring EBRs don't get banned... Oh and avoid conversations like that at work. You'll never know where they lead how heated they will get and surely your employer has better uses for your time than that.

Times are tough cutbacks are many, why put yourself on the skyline?

I disagree... As far as I am concerned, FUDDs have already been fucking EBR owners. We're just offering to return the favor if we're forced to.
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 8:09:24 AM EDT
Clue him in to this line from the bill:

"In making the determination, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any Federal law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event."

Currently the bill does not apply to bolt action rifles, but that only means it is one simple amendment away from a ban on every firearm the military or government agencies has EVER procured.
Link Posted: 3/30/2009 8:13:55 AM EDT
There are no "good" guns for the ANTIs, only stuff they plan on banning now and stuff they plan on banning later. The wood-stock-only idiots need to wake up to this fact.

<––wingshooter, waterfowler, blackpowder pistolero, clay shooter, occasional deer hunter, air rifler, and proud EBRist.

I think I love every gun and every shooting discipline ever devised and few things piss me off more than fudds. I'd actually actively work towards having the language of any ban include everything down to a single shot .22lr. They can eat us easily one bite at a time, so we need to force them to show their true colors right up front.
