I don't want to be political - sigh but I cite this as a risk to the RKBA.

It's the blah, blah sporting use argument:

Here is a supposed gun rights advocate who immediately falls back on that mantra

“I don’t know anybody in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle,” Mr. Manchin said, speaking on the MSNBC program “Morning Joe.”
So you can support the Right to shoot ducks and bambi and that's it.

I have little respect for that. Last night, the wife and I drove home through a herd of the cutest little deer. About 15 of them, we just drifted through them slowly. Why should I care about a guy who wants to shoot them when he can eat tofu (actually I like tofu in the local Chinese restaurant - they have a great dish)?

So he's a sportsman and a hunter. Who gives a crap about that? That's not the purpose of the 2nd Amendment.

We elect unthinking idiots of all parties to our government. They only care about getting in office for their own greed, IMHO.
