Thanks for your informative and courteous replies. The sunshine approach is great for a free society, and that seems to be the intent.
...About making sure that the "Assault Weapons Ban" sunsets in 2004... Hopefully SWAT has some major activism planned. I know that Larry Pratt of GOA is going to make that a major issue in the near future. It would be a great day when I can ask my friendly neighborhood Peace Officer for sighting-in tips for my HK G36 or SIG Commando (currently LEO weapons).
Thanks again, gentlemen. Appreciate the site.
