I know nothing about this group other than what they have listed on their site.

It might be worth a look.

I sent them an email inquiring about their stance on NFA weapons.

I'll let you guys know if I hear back from them.

Here is their reply concerning NFA ownership.

The GFODL is against all firearm laws that have no effect on criminals. The NFA only places limits on people who obey the law. It places no limits on those who will still obtain NFA classed weapons through illegal means. Criminals do not have to go through the background checks, pay the $200 tax and jump through all kinds of hoops in order to purchase this type of weapons.

They sound like my kind of people.

I'm not going to say that this is the silver bullet we've all been looking for but it might be a good starting point.

I hope they do as well as long as owner of said restaurant is like minded.

I don't want to turn this thread into a pissing match but I've made my feeling well known regarding carrying on private property. Your gun rights stop where my private property or any private property begins unless the owner is like minded.
