And do you think a majority of "tactical" shooters, or the partisan chest-beaters at the gun show have?
Absolutely not, and that's precisely what I mean. Your 5% number is probably right. I'm just trying to say that the gun banning politicians, with the help of the media, try to pass their bills, believing the numbers are on their side. The media is doing their part by promoting gun control, and ignoring guns used in a positive manner. Since most people get their info from 15 second soundbites on the nightly news, it's easy to sway the general public to believe guns are evil, and therefore should be "regulated".

In other words, law abiding-gun owners, no matter what segment of the "culture", should stick together, and realize that an infringement on a right is an injustice, no matter what.
